I like the show, it has a different vibe and should be commended for bringing something a bit different. It's a bit awkward but will get better with experience. I like the relaxed informal vibe and Bob will only get better. Reckon it could do with a name change though, something like Bob & Co. Ive never seen an interview with involving football where the guests were kind of letting their guard down and being themselves, to an extent.

Hope it grows.
I think the show name Open Bob could work

I just watched the Tex one. Bob looked a bit out of sorts because I think Tex is the first guest that hasn't immediately shut up when Bob starts talking over the top and cutting them off. If I was Tex I would've felt like saying look mate do you want me to talk or do you want to talk because I'm quite happy to just sit here and drink beer if you want to talk.

Enjoyed his story about business class. I wonder who the Home and Away actor was (not that I'd probably know them). It kind of felt like the story didn't finish though. I could also relate to what he was saying about that feeling you get when playing music with people and the 'magic' that can happen. That kind of organic sixth sense that can develop where you're just in the zone and feeding off each other. I would think good football teams experience something very similar where they can anticipate things and communicate without talking and I was expecting Bob to say words to that effect but he instead started talking about how he felt in the huddle before a game. Was a bit weird as I thought the parallel was pretty obvious.

Holy crapola, Foxtel I totally get what you’re trying with the style of this but....get some kid from uni to intern for free and make the show!! The camera work is atrocious and way too “forced”.

If you’re going for the intimate conversational fly on the wall thing with the handheld cam... why do you have wide shots with the full studio set up of audio and lights in picture???

The forced styling takes away from what could actually be a good show

Really enjoy Bob, the person and the show. He is different gravy, but we need different gravy.
** He May run out of anecdotes (have already heard him repeat a couple)

I'm probably just going to delete last night's episode unless somebody says it was ******* amazing.
Least he's interrupted his guest or talked about himself so far, unfortunately also the least interesting guest he's had.

Who is the guest next week?

The show’s conversational style depends heavily on the guest. I thought Tex Perkins was disappointingly inarticulate.
Yes that’s true. I thought Rob Sitch was great, although as others have said perhaps Bob didn’t let him talk as much about the game itself as he should have.

I think these days its becoming more and more prevalent, that newbies in the media talk about themselves. Its been made famous on MMM, SEN Off the bench, talking about themselves or referring to selves in 3rd person. It comes across as a laugh, joke, one of the boys type thing. Easy to do, and it shines a light on the presenter/commentator as a comedian first, analyst later.

It's been hit and miss so far. Really enjoyed Fyfe and Rob Sitch. Not so much Tex Perkins, who I am a big fan of. I missed Sabrina Frederick-Traub but hopefully it is still recorded.
