The Logie-nominated Australian comedy music panel show, which stars host Hills and team captains Myf Warhurst and Alan Brough, was cancelled by The ABC in May after seven seasons and will soon air for the last time.
After filming the final episode, Hills told The Age: "You're the host and the camera is like someone who's just turned up... Your job is to explain to the camera - and therefore everyone at home - who everyone is and what you're talking about and to keep them involved.
''That's probably the secret of Spicks and Specks. For us, it wasn't a panel show, it wasn't a game show or a quiz show - it was a dinner party.''
Hills also claimed that, although Spicks and Specks was based on the UK's Never Mind the Buzzcocks, he and his co-stars were much kinder to each other.
"The English panel shows can be quite snipey,'' the comedian said. ''It's kill or be killed. Bill Bailey came on our show and said, 'It's like being on Buzzcocks, except that when I said something funny no one said, 'Shut up, freak boy'."
Hills recently revealed that he, Warhurst and Brough all agreed last year that they had "one more season" in them and that it was then "time to say goodbye".
The final episode of Spicks and Specks airs on ABC1 at 8.30pm on Wednesday, November 23.
