"If you're a GF fan, you'll dig every episode, if you're not a fan pick and choose depending on his guest, because there is A LOT of Gilbert in every ep. I have found myself laughing out loud through some eps and skipping through others, it really depends on if Gilbert can really connect & riff with a particular guest or not. His co-host is a big help in steering the ship. "
