From Amazon.co.uk

Two of the country’s most popular comedians bring back their equally popular sketch show for a second series, and it shows that David Mitchell’s and Robert Webb’s respective stars are showing little sign of waning. Bringing back old characters with plenty of new ideas, That Mitchell And Webb Look’s second series is funny, clever and destined to be watched over and over (even if it does struggle at times to match series one for gut-busting laughs).

The duo seem to have a bit more money to work with here, too (helped in no small way by the continuing success too of Peep Show), but it’s still the favourites from series one that generate many of the big laughs in That Mitchell And Webb Look. Game show parody Numberwang, in particular, is ingenious and very, very funny, and one of the absolute ongoing highlights of the show

Elsewhere, Sir Digby’s return is less successful, and some of the new material is more hit and miss than you’d hope for. But the joy of That Mitchell And Webb Look is that there’s usually a good laugh around the corner, and that proves to be the case here. It may not see the pair at their absolute peak, but this is sketch comedy as good as anyone else is doing on British television screens right now. Well worth your time. And funnybone… --Jon Foster

3.0 out of 5 stars That Mitchell And Webb Look - Series 2 20 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
More hit & miss than the first series, the basic formula is some sketches are funny and others aren't. The good ones are brilliant, the others are well written and clever, but don't make me want to laugh for some reason. Highlights include David and Robert arguing about how cheese is made, the boy with a backside for a face and a few others but some sketches are disappointingly repetitive such as the man and the uncommunicative horse and Helivets, which is funny the first time, but not much so afterwards. Series 3 and 4 are much better I think - but then again, this is all subjective isn't it? You might enjoy Series Two more than I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars A TV Comedy Sketch-Show with Lots of Originality 28 Sep 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you're familiar with the Mitchell and Webb Radio Show, some of the sketches on this TV series will be familiar to you. This show has a lot of peaks and troughs, i.e. it doesn't have the same sort of sustained brilliance as Peep Show, but then, very little does. It's in the same sort of style as The Fast Show and The Harry Enfield Show, i.e. lots of short comedy skits, many of which have a historical element and are costume based. Sir Digby Chicken Caesar is an upper crust dipsomaniac and kleptomaniac, who gets involved in all sorts of silly escapades. The Boy With An Arse For Face, well, the name gives it away. If you like this comedy duo, I'm sure that this DVD will satisfy, but they are a bit of an acquired taste. There's a funny movie spoof of their own TV game show Numberwang. Some reviewers disparage Mitchell & Webb as arty undergraduate humour, and I can see how some of the sketches would be susceptible to that sort of criticism, but by and large they hit their targets adeptly. Mildly amusing and always quirky and original.

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.

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 2 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Show That Even Has It's Own Garden! 27 Nov 2008
By DL Productions UK TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
David Mitchell and Robert Webb are back for more silliness - and more comedy that can you handle. I have to admire the boys for not just doing more of the same in series 2, the only survivor is Sir Digby Chicken Caesar - and a slightly changed Numberwang, which is pretty cool. Some of my favourites include the Helipets which don't actually save pets; the restaurant which pretends to be a vet; the history of Numberwang and of course the scene where Robert and David are in their "That Mitchell and Webb Look Garden" after all they're the only ones to have one, with Blue Peter, well that's what we're lead to believe. There's even a cameo from One Show host Adrian Chillies, shame it wasn't Christine Bleakley.

This show is still good fun, but I miss things like Numberwang, The Snooker Commentators, The Historian and the dodgy bloke trying to offer an attraction which is dangerous - but you've got to look at what's good in TMAWL - the new scenes which are really good like the scarecrow actually getting a date with the girl instead of the bloke, the historian nearly flying with his arms, the chef who looses his sense of smell and of course - Sir Digby Chicken Caesar acting like a loon in the stately home.

Top marks to them, this is original, but follows the same line of humour the pair are known for, you have to admire the way they didn't just give us more of the same, but went away, worked hard on a new set of scenes and gave us something new.

The extras are OK, you get some never before seen sketches which is actually very useful, out-takes and an interesting interview with them. The good thing is that they've been spread over 2 DVDs, and the picture quality is much better than the first series. One crazy thing though is this is region 0, whereas series 1 was R2, it's a pity as our cousins in America can't see the first series! Madness

Altogether this is a great show, and has that "come back later" appeal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first series... 20 April 2008
Format:DVD
I loved the first series of 'That Mitchell and Webb Look'. It was a breath of fresh air, amongst all the dire sketch shows dependent on constant repetition and unpleasantness, and the show that was intelligent in it's comedy.
It was a transfer of the best of their radio series, 'That Mitchell and Webb Sound', and some new sketches especially written for television. There was a huge range of characters and worlds, and they all were brilliant reflections of people in real life.
'Numberwang' was an excellent parody of numerous over the top game shows, 'Angel Summoner and BMX bandit' was a clever parody of constant superhero collaborations, 'Big Talk' of numerous debate shows, 'Sir Digby' featuring a london vagrant believing that he's a character in a certain 50s detective programme (and wonderfully reminiscant of the style), and numerous celebrity teaming parodies, including 'Chip and Pin'.
Every sketch was well done and left the wit to do the talking.

And now, series two. The glossy budget hasn't helped them, and the new series has been good overall, but not great. Moments of genius are mixed with sketches that have swearing for the sake of it instead of to make a point or to be simply silly.
Of what has been copied from the radio show, the sketches are good and some are brilliant, especially the transfer of the 'Cricket Film' sketch.
Of what is new, it really is a case of the brilliant alternating with the dire.
I loved the return of Numberwang, especially the history of Numberwang which was essentially great little moments strung together in one long sketch. The sketches such as the farmer talking to his horse were overdone, and some sketches such as 'Speedo', 'Mrs Wilberforce' and the return of 'Sir Digby' served no purpose and were 'so-so' at the best.
