Episode 1: Rob & Romesh vs Art

Summary

Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan are back to dip their toes into the unknown, beginning by delving into the world of art. Romesh takes Rob on his first-ever trip to a gallery, before they head to an art school to learn different disciplines, before each of them has to create an exhibition for the world-famous Saatchi Gallery

Review

After their festive late-night lock-in at Hamleys, with Tom Allen joining in the high jinks, Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan resume their two-pronged attack on uncharted territories. Having flailed around in the discomfort zones of Super Bowl and boxing, fashion and country music, R&R kick off a third series by stroking their chins at the world of art.

We’re promised the sight of Rob visiting his first ever art gallery, while both learn different disciplines at art school. As always, however, it’s not just mucking about: each has to host an exhibition at London’s world-famous Saatchi Gallery. What’s always rather sweet is that the banter boys may enjoy winding each other up, but underneath it all you can tell they’re mates.

Review

The recent sight of Rob Beckett watching England at Wembley proves he likes his sport. But as many find, “liking” and “being good at” can be worlds apart. And his quest with Romesh Ranganathan to find an Olympic sport they’re comfortable with sees the pair going through the disciplines like a dose of salts.

Their donning of leotards has gymnast Max Whitlock in fits of laughter, while their pommel-horse training on a giant mushroom and a plastic bucket ends with Romesh feeling “like the world’s saddest gnome”. Surely throwing things, with heptathlete Denise Lewis as their trainer, can’t be worse?

It’s hilarious without even trying – and, in the end, surprisingly uplifting.
