Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing


#21

Got it recorded, really looking forward to it though. It’s exactly the sort of thing I reckon I’ll love.


#22

Do you like Great Canal Journeys with Timothy West and Prunella Scales?


#23

Not as far as I know…


#24

Yeah, he talked about it to Adam Buxton on AB’s podcast.


#25

Last night’s was humbly great too. What a mid-week tonic this show is.


#26

Didn’t like the look of Bob’s pizza. Was it just a load of that cauliflower rice mushed into a base with cheese on top?


#27

Yeah basically


#28

Can’t wait for the Bob Mortimer origins movie


#29

Delighted to hear the Peter Beardsley bed from Athletico Mince :grinning:


#30

The second episode was absolutely lovely. Paul with his bad back and Bob helping him and catching a massive fish. Triffic.


#31

“Oh, Paul. I’ve fallen.”


#32

absolutely love this. the perfect 30 min tv show


#33

Middle-aged men from the world of television comedy doing Michael Caine impressions in idyllic settings is basically a full subgenre now.

(not a criticism, this is really enjoyable TV)


#34

Basically the trip (which I fucking loved so don’t care)

Pretty much happy to just watch two absolute GBOLs having a laugh


#35

Finally getting around to watching this now. Brilliant, lovely TV. That bit in episode 2 where they had a little hug after catching that fish was really nice.


#36

Love the show, but nothing will ever fully explain the appeal of fishing to me. This kind anyway, where you look at it then put it back.


#37

Surely the actual fish are unimportant to a point and it’s just a nice way of getting air in the lungs, having a bit of peace and quiet, seeing nice scenery, etc.


#38

The catch and release element of the fishing is the one thing that puts me off what is otherwise a lovely show. Feels a bit cruel to me. If you’re going to fish shouldn’t you at least eat it?
