    My husband is a Mitchell and Webb superfan, we both enjoy their comedy programs (TV and radio), and this fits the bill of what we were expecting from them. I study a lot of Hindu mythology, so what hit me about this show is the idea of Shiva and the little man holding a cobra, Apasmara. What's said about Shiva dancing on this little man of ignorance is "Break his back." In this show, Webb's character would be Apasmara, who has happy glorious memories of the past, whereas Mitchell's character would be Shiva, who has very realistic (and painful) memories about what happened in his childhood, and has no interest in retreading those stories. The conflict between happy ignorance and real memory is very well done here.

    I wasn't expecting anything similar to their previous work with 'Peep Show' and I was prepared to see familiar faces in fresh roles. Instead, Mark and Jeff have been transplanted into a new series, from 'Peep Show', with the only notable differences being that Jeff now seems more pro-active and Mark has a beard. Beardy Mark is still neurotic whilst simultaneously being inexplicably ignored/crapped on by everyone around him. Pro-Active Jeff is still a grifting sociopath. Stopped watching about half way through the third episode and I can't see how it got 100% on Rotten Farts. Given how much I loved 'Peep Show' and 'That Mitchell & Webb Look', I honestly expected better and, instead, found myself writing this...

    serious moments like paternity & other issues slagged off for a cheap laugh, Mitchell and Webb are better than this
