4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 7 July 2008
By dynamitekid156 VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Sketch shows have a rich British tradition, The Fast Show, Harry Enfield And Chums, dating all the way back to Monty Python. However, first season aside, Little Britain heralded a different brand of sketch show, a lowest-common-denominator, catchphrase-and-gross-out based style. This predictability removes the one thing which made shows like Monty Python in particular great, namely the unpredictability. The whole point of a sketch show isn't to have recurring characters every week, but to just spent a couple of minutes in each little world and then move onto something totally different. That Mitchell And Webb Look restores this balance, reviving sketch shows as they were originally intended.

This is not to say that there aren't recurring characters in That Mitchell And Webb Look. The likes of delusional tramp Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, conman Barry Crisp and spectacularly surreal gameshow Numberwang all have repeat appearances, but crucially have enough material to make it worth seeing each time, with each rendition having a new spin. Also funny are the Extras-style, 'backstage' moments, with Mitchell and Webb playing perverse, childish verisons of themselves to great effect.

In addition to this, each episode is crammed full of one-shot sketches which deliver home-run gangs and then disappear; like the abusive detective on the phone, the man with the telekinetic power over biscuits or the BMX Bandit and the Angel Summoner. Best of all is the saga of Chip And Pin, a hilarious mini-biography of the rise and fall of four stage performers. An original, sharp, witty show that's well worth watching from front to back; and the DVD comes with a bunch of deleted sketches and outtakes which are worth watching, as well as an interesting (and funny) making-of documentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars More absurd observations from the masters... 18 July 2007
Format:DVD
I didn't catch the whole series, but those sketches I did see had me in stitches. The human shortcomings of their characters are always neatly observed... my favourites are Sir Digby Chicken Caesar who suffers from the delusion that he's Sherlock Holmes, Dick Barton and Biggles rolled into one, (in reality he's just a crusty hobo in a Deerstalker hat who's adventures are limited to park benches and dumpsters); then there's crime fighting "duo" Angel Summoner and his redundant sidekick BMX Bandit, and the very posh condencending person who's unaccountably still a waiter.
Can't wait for more...

5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY, FUNNY, FUNNY! 16 July 2007
Format:DVD
Not as good as Peep Show, but still very, very good! This is just a sketch show from David Mitchell and Robert Webb, containing some fantastic writing and timing, and generally some fantastic sketches.
'Numberwang' is one that reccures frequently, it's just a game show that makes absolutely no sense and is just a load of rubbish, but in a good way. The last few sketches of it though offer a 'Wordwang' and a German 'Numberwang'.
The sketch with the two snooker commentators is another reccuring one. There are too many sketches to go through them all, but they are all fabulous.
Definitely worth wasting three hours of your life watching, and if you like this, why not try buying the four 'Peep Show' series, or their 'Magicians' film. It's all brilliant stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars Das ist Numberwang! 6 Nov 2007
By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
That Mitchell & Webb Look is one of those sketch comedies which I didn't think was entirely fantastic, but some of the sketches had me in stitches and I had to re-watch them.

I suppose pretty much all sketch comedies are hit and miss as you can't love all the characters. Most of the sketches are catchphrase based, but they don't rely on them. Take the snooker commentators Ted and Peter for example, the sketches aren't solely reliant on one saying "..and that's a bad miss", the sketch goes on to explore the hollow lives of the guys and their homoerotic descriptions of the players.

The surreal sketches are the ones I love the most, such as the Clarinet of Embarrassing Secrets, Angel Summoner and BMX Bandit is pure genius, `Big Talk' is a brilliant spoof of late night political debate shows, and everyone seems to love the Numberwang sketches. The `behind the scenes' sketches are the least funny, maybe it's because they lack the creative energy of the rest of the programme, and they seem to interrupt the pace of the show.

There's nothing here that's going to change your life, you might find some of the sketches mildly amusing - but you'll find some of them to be absolutely brilliant. This isn't as well honed as the seminal Peep Show, but the unstructured format and the performances from two of our best comedy performers/writers means that this is an important piece of British Comedy which will proudly adorn the DVD shelf of many a comedy fan.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mitchell and Webb have to be one of my favourite comedy partnerships of recent years. While poking fun at the seemingly mundane in life, the extraordinary things we all seem able to accept and occasionally going off on flights of hilarious fantasy, they're never afraid to give the inner geek free reign.

In this first TV series we are treated to the secret life of snooker commentators, discussing party invitations for the likes of Scooby Doo and James Bond and a myriad of other quickfire, usually hilarious sketches.

Also starring Olivia Coleman and James Bachman in a bewildering array of characters, this is a well written sketch show, and while there is the odd dud most of the sketches hit rather than miss, and the short quickfire nature means there are plenty of laughs in each episode.

All six episodes are collected here onto 1 DVD. Series 1 of the Mitchell and Webb sound repeats a large proportion of the sketches, but there is enough material unique to radio or TV to make it worth owning both.

5 Stars.

A really funny sketch show, I was almost constantly laughing, but also very clever sketches and ideas, particularly the snooker commentators and the evil vicar/shopkeeper/waiter.
