Episode 1 of 6

Duration: 30 minutes

With the help of his friend Beef, 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 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.
