does everyone shout at the tv when there is something obvious that the contestant has to do and the advisors just fanny around argueing.

Yup...  :)

I'm usually sitting in my seat getting pretty tense. Like when teams hang around in Ariadne's Lair and she comes back to chomp on 'em...  :o

I'm like, "Get out of there you pillak!"  >:(

Mind you CT if I were an advisor I'd say that to my dungeoneer if he was like that...  ;D
If the only way is onward how would you get home for tea?? :-/

I don't shout at the TV out loud, but I do sit on the edge of the seat, willing them to get a move on or whatever.
I was watching Scott's team on S3 a few days ago on video and was getting impatient with his team (not Scott himself - he was at the mercy of their decisions) for taking ages to make decisions.  Not only that, but they whispered between themselves too much too!

And then of course you have things like near deaths and deaths in the Corridor of blades.. especially those who if they had only moved a cm to the left or right wouldn't have been removed from the game  :-/

The most tense part of the game anytime

I remember getting very annoyed at some teams. It was particularly frustrating when a team progressed so far and then died just before winning because a fresh team would begin right at the start again.
Subject to change.

I very rarely get excited about anything anymore.
Oh look there's J.G. Ballard in a burnt-out fridge with a spitfire pilot.

I hear you Dublex! The team tells the dungeoneer to sidestep in whatever direction AND THE SOD ONLY MOVES ONE STEP..... A definate 'screaming at the telly' moment
There are but 2 rules in this realm:-
1) He who sees first is the winner...
2) He who is seen first is toast...

It's like when when the goblins are chasing a dungeoneer - you just want to say to that person:

Yep, I still do some of this too- especially with some of the later series where I get a bit caught up in the atmosphere.

When I know what's about to happen tho., I do now sometimes amuse myself by shouting at them to do the wrong thing. "Go on, take the dagger, not the horn. Don't listen to Brangwen, she knows nothing." Oh, and of course, "Go on, take the empty jar of humbugs- Lillith will just love that". :)
