Great show last night! Very funny - the wedding planner was a great theme. Thought the couple were great sports and loved some of Rhod's ideas and observations - having to untangle a bride's thong; the ice sculpture with or without appendage and roping in Chris O'Dowd to do a video message. Looking forward to the rest!

Loved the 'Give A S**t' logo. Shame I had just taken a mouthful of coffee when it came onscreen
Considering how acerbic Rhod can be, I found it a warm and fuzzy programme with loads of laughs.

It's the only thing I like Rhod doing. Normally his vioce grates on me and it still does in his voice over but when he's just being himself, chatting to people, he comes over really well and quite amusing. My only complaint about this weeks was that 30 mins wasn't long enough. There is so much potential in wedding planning that it could have been an hour.

Yeah I agree wholly here!! Rhods voice grates on me too (I don't know what it is!) - but his hatred of weddings and everything else .....and his "I don't give a shit" attitude made me wonder where this was going!!
Great guy in the end....and he cried at that speech!
Yes - this could well have been a 60 minute story! (Bet there's ton's on the cutting-room floor)

I really really enjoyed this as well and would love to see a longer cut . Wouldn't say a huge Rhod Gilbert fan, and like others can find his voice grating at times, but he's really good at this sort of thing and I find him really personable and engaging, unlike a lot of TV presenters. The show that won me over to him was that Most Dangerous Roads one he did with Greg Davies a few years ago. Superb tv.

Rhod is one of my favourites of what I think of as 'the new comedians'...........I like him on pretty much everything he does, which I guess is mainly this series and the panel show circuit

This is a terrific series.............he seems to have such good rapport with people

Another brilliant one last night as a Scout Leader, took my back to my days in the Scouts!

Reminded me of the school episode he did, he is great with kids. Fair play to him.

I know! Looked very luxurious! Might consider a coach holiday if they're like that nowadays!

Just popping in to say that I love this series! Rhod really gets stuck in with each week's task and seems to care about doing a good job. I liked the Grange Hill references with the two ladies who were always going missing and the last minute bingo hunt.
