My Mitchell and Webb opinion...

David gave an A+++ performance in the, uh, 'surprising talents' sketches, holy fuck. (I may or may not have had a brief ovary exploding moment at his mock-innocent 'what?' in the second sketch. David's sex voice is surprisingly sexy. Redundant sentence is redundant.) And Robert! Robert's "do you?" to the sentence "I love women" was fucking GOLD. Also, the vaudevillian expression at the end was brilliant.

Sadly, I continue to hate almost all other recurring sketches, which means that 50% of an episode is always going to bore, aggravate, or, at the very least, perplex me. I quite like some of their oneshots, especially those that have a more satirical bent. On the whole, though, I pretty much only adore the sketches where they're 'being themselves'. The meta amuses me greatly. Everything else does not.

I think this series is better than the previous ones have been, and that they're finding their feet a bit more. Compared to the first series this is great.

I agree about the recurring things though. I feel like some of them are there just to have something recurring rather than because they have another joke. Like last week's "The Event" game-show bit really made me laugh, but this weeks was a dud. I've never seen a sketch show in which every sketch was a win though. It's probably the hardest comedy genre.

No sketch shows are 100%, I agree. And Mitchell and Webb have a sketch about that. But I wish there was, at least, a recurring series of sketches beyond the meta ones that I loved.

I do adore the in-between-sketches sketches.
And David is adorable in The Big Fat Quiz of the Year opposing Noel Fielding and Russell Brand.

He's adorable on the Big Fat Quiz of the Year with Charlie Brooker opposite Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross too.
