I find The Mitchell and Webb Situation around nine hundred times more amusing than That Mitchell and Webb Look, and I've been trying to figure out exactly why, but I can't. Personally, I think the ratio between 'hit' and 'miss' is skewed much more towards 'miss' in the latter show. And although the 'hits' have larger budgets, they still don't make me laugh as hard as those in Situation do.

I have to say, I actually think this is one of my favourite sketches of all time. And I have watched a lot of sketch comedy, both good and very, very bad. The thing that really sells this for me is David's performance. His character's just so confused, bless him. Robert is also brilliant. It is by no means an original concept, it isn't telling us anything we didn't already know, but I still find it utterly hilarious.

Once again, David's performance here is fairly fantastic. Plus, the framing and use of sound effects and editing is wonderful. And that church looks fucking freezing.

This is just CUTE, and also, I am in love with Olivia Colman.
