I love the recurring joke of Vic asking Bob if he can make the skin of his face slop forwards and reveal something underneath.

Yeah. it really is mostly about enjoying the two lovely old fellas just messing about together.

Is there ANYONE else on telly today doing anything even remotely similar (daft wigs/false heads/catchphrases/props)? As much as I love them I think they have a huge advantage in that they have that whole section of the comedy stage just for themselves.

Wasn't that thing that Greg Davies was in a bit like that? Just not much cop.

Just thinking, it's going to be thirty years since BNO first aired, in about eighteen months, like.

Cor, there's the full 1991 live show on YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uB-ZSbcwzhI

Going to watch and see if it's better than the newun

UPDATE: I prefer Bob leaning on the desk when he chats with Vic

However I'm not entirely sure why Vic & Bob are attempting to recreate the past all of a sudden. I thought Shooting Stars was a brilliant move, and whilst far from perfect - I admired their ambition in attempting House of Fools.
I think this is completely down to what they can get on TV.
They couldn’t get another series of House Of Fools up from memory.

Is that a young Vaun (AKA Tom Cruise / Chris Evans) at 23.18?

Coming out from under the desk? Looks like the Booze For Baby bloke (Mike Wattam?).

Harry Hill's Alien Fun Capsule is the only one I can think of  (on British TV at least).

Must say, second viewing of this last night and I thought it was even better than the first, very much classic Vic & Bob, the cowboy thing on novelty island floored me.

Is there any where to buy the full smell of on download? It was such a massive part of my life I’d like to relive it again!

Was really underwhelmed by this, thought "snipers dream AGAIN?" and then realised I was watching the pilot.

God, that bit with Vic's honking gooseberry in the suitcase creased me up.

Agree about the suitcase. Was a shame that most of the best bits were recycled stuff that we've already seen before though. It was still a fun half hour. Nowhere near as good as last week's though.

I agree it didn’t hit the heights of the opener - was the Ghost Watch clip lifted wholesale from Afternoon Delights? - but the highs were very good indeed. The gooseberry and the Kanye West’s pants falling down song in particular.

I really liked the 'FIREBALL WARNING' sketch. V & B in silly clothes doing silly regional accents is always going to work for me. But yeah, agree with what you've written there.

Are they lazy or busy or both or what? they only had to put four half-hour shows together!

I think they've both been quoted in the past as saying that they don't like to work too hard, I seem to recall Bob telling Reece Shearsmith something along those lines in that episode of chain reaction they did.

Is that where Bob says they get together and work for the morning and then he just goes and parks up outside B&Q and has a kip? Something like that

They used a couple of Tim Vine's jokes at the start of the second episode. But gag theft/borrowing aside, I was cracking up with laughter a lot. Lots of hilarious stuff packed into 28 minutes, the first two episodes have been their funniest stuff as a duo in years.

Bob: "You're excitable young people aren't you?"
Vic: "That's my nephew"
Bob: "You haven't got a nephew...you've got a cat...that's dead"

Also "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and that oh-so important party tape!

On first viewing I preferred this to the 1st episode, the gooseberry in a box and the guy playing the guitar with the one long leg floored me!

Another welcome return, this time of Mr. Onions from the Shooting Stars 'Cash For Mishaps' sketch.

Yes, the "South African Yarpie" absolutely killed me.  I missed most of the rest of the sketch cos I was laughing so hard, so I had to go back and watch it again.

And Tom Hanks' nose.  Particularly timely as I watched Cloud Atlas immediately before.


Learnt after the show that yer man Vaun was the bloke that Noel Edmonds told on Twitter he had terminal cancer cos he wasn't positive enough and then recommended that machine.

I loved it especially the Ghost Hunters bit and spotting Andy Falkous of McClusky and Future Of The Left fame in the audience. Next to my friend Michael. Who's his friends. Circles.

Great, I was worried it might have been Homebase or Wickes.
