Vic and Bob are very funny. It may take you a while to understand this, but if you have a sense of humour you'll find i'm right. Oh yes. Most definitely.

I'm not giving this 10 as its a compilation and i don't like compilations. Chopping things into bits and pasting them together in a different order is a TERRIBLE thing to do. Get the whole proper thing instead. Compilations are cash in Christmas type things. Better still, watch 'Big Night Out' first, then 'The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer' Then shooting stars. The earlier series-es are PERHAPS a little bit hit and miss at times, but are Stronger, Like a well matured cheese the material is richer. Shooting Stars is perhaps a bit dilute. But there are moments of pure hilarity. I miss Vic and Bob on TV, its a pity Catterick was dubious.
