I fear they may have peaked too early in this series...

Yep, no way they'll top that episode. They shot their Bob bolt too soon.

Well well, Kiss The Alderman, who knew.

I can't find any evidence with regards to what Bob's beers are actually called, but I suspect that 'Kiss the Alderman' was just him kicking into Athletico Mince fallback mode while trying to wrong-foot his opponents. I hope I'm wrong, though, as that's a cracking name for an ale.

Just look at his lovely wee face in that first photograph.

Interestingly it's a stout, not the IPA claimed on the show. Sounds like Retail Park and Not Now, Madam were bollocks though.

Do you get a mandatory life sentence with no parole for using a preposition in the user reviews?

Brilliant, thank you. So it really is a genuine nod to Athletico Mince. That's rather wonderful.

To be fair, it's quite funny if you read those user reviews in Bob's voice.

So how much liberty are they given to embellish the story if it's true?

I honestly don't think they'd have got that one if the guy hadn't looked so much like a stereotypical craft brewer.

True, which is probably why Bob went of his way to make his story sound like bollocks.

Yeah, Bob was on fire. Had he done an actual lie before? That seemed to wrongfoot Mitchell somewhat.

My God Bob Mortimer is the funniest man alive.

Being told off by him when I was a toddler because I was pissing him off in a pub is to date the only thing of note that I have achieved.

That egg in the bath story was so good. I loved how, a couple of times, they got so deep into the detail that the moment someone rowed back and actually said the words "so Chris Rea ran you a bath" that was enough to set them all off laughing again.

He is the king of this show - to the point where maybe it would be too much to have him on every week. But, by fuckery, it would improve the show greatly.

I still love the format of this panel show - with the right contestants and good stories it has the potential to be the best on TV. But I too admit that the line-ups presented look pretty weak.

Having been to the recording of this one, I have to say this show really should have an extended version. They cut out about three or four stories, including another Mortimer one. Meanwhile QI and HIGNFY get one despite being past their best years ago.

I've only urgency to watch when it's a Bob ep. I'd happily save the non-Bobbers for rainy days in years to come, but when I see that Bob's been on, I hurry right along. He's delightful, and his storytelling flights are painfully funny. I think often of the hand lion's strike.

they do at least do an offcuts ep at the end of each series - fingers crossed for more Bob goodness there

He's kind of quiet when he's not called on to speak, isn't he? by no means a smart-arse, kind of introverted. He doesn't even laugh that much when the others are falling off their chairs chuckling. But a kind of light comes over his face when it's his turn.

Hang on, hang on, everyone's just blown past two splendidly interesting comments.

Imitationleather and lankyguy95:

1. Please tell the story of being told off by Bob in a pub. I can't imagine an angry Bob, but I want to.

2. What was the cut Bob story about?

The cut Bob story will probabaly be used at the end of the series, or in a Christmas episode, so maybe don't give that one away.

I thought the Olivia Colman episode was great. Aston Merrygold was dull and I am sick to death of seeing people do their signature dance move or physical feat when we've seen it a million times before, but Colman was fantastic and Lee Mack was in particularly quick form.
