Series 1, Episode 1 - The Conan Affair
Bob has a hot date lined-up. All he needs now is to get rid of all his unwanted house guests, so he and his new lady can watch Conan The Barbarian in peace.
Unfortunately, Vic has broken the telly, and Bob tasks him with finding another one, or he risks being chucked out of the flat for good. As a last resort Vic may have to ask his randy neighbour Julie for help.
When Vic's brother Bosh - newly out of prison - turns up, Bob is still nowhere near having things perfect for his upcoming date. With a break-in, a gas leak, some crisp chardonnay and the Hindenburg Stretch maybe they will find a way to stop Bob from having to cancel the date.
This was the pilot episode. Speaking in an interview Bob Mortimer says: "It was never meant to be shown. It looks very different, we changed the geography of the room. Me and Jim do fall into the trap of getting a bit arsey and making comedy about bottoms, but that's mainly in the pilot."
