Mediocre episode
12 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first three seasons of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" were highly enjoyable - hilarious, clever, inventive sketches performed to perfection by the gleeful duo Fry and Laurie. The fourth season, however, gets off to a disappointing start. I've heard that the show moved to a different channel for this season, and thus had access to more funding and different standards. That may explain why season 4 starts off on such a different tack from the previous 19 episodes.

Episode 2, like episode 1, features underused guest stars and poorly-planned sketches. Fry and Laurie appear to have trouble adjusting to writing for four actors instead of two. (Luckily, the show gets back into its hilarious groove in episode 4.3.)

The sketches are: Cold Open: Hamper (Hugh); Intro: Hugh's Head Wound (Hugh & Stephen); Child's Therapist (Stephen & Hugh); Guests: Kevin McNally & Fiona Gillis; The Local News at Ten-Thirty-Three and a Bit (Stephen & Hugh); English People Appear to be the Most Ignorant in Europe (all four actors); Hugh Sings "Steffi Graf" (Hugh); The Lover's Helper Cassette (Fiona & Kevin); Fascism (Hugh & Kevin); Lovers' Reunion (Fiona, Stephen, & Hugh); A Sketch in a Hospital (all four actors); Cocktail: A Long, Confident Suck (all four).
