It's time that he went and left me in peace, and took his shitty gauntlet with him.", he sings. Then there's the bit where Vic Reeves forgets how to sit down on a sofa. No, really, that happens. It's a very brave opening for a new sitcom, and if this was any other sitcom I'd probably be slating it but the fact that it's Vic & Bob makes it work.
