Storyline

Passions run high in the final program of the series. The day turns out to be very unlucky for Hugh as Stephen becomes irritated by his piano playing and kills him. But the irritation continues as the program becomes an obituary for Hugh and ruins the sketch. However, there is a happy ending for those who like that sort of thing. Written by Anonymous

Season 2 of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" picks up right where Season 1 left off: our old friends Control, Tony, Peter, and John are back, as are the vox pop crowd. Season 2 features the same witty wordplay, gleeful slapstick, and excellent rapport between the actors. In this season, Stephen and Hugh also do a brief introduction (in character as "themselves") before the sketches begin. These introductions mark the start of Stephen's trademark finger quotes.

This, the final episode of season 2, contains a fair amount of nostalgia. I was really sad to see the last of John, Peter, Tony, and Control. Hugh opens the episode by railing against the powers that be (in his own strange way) and attending his own memorial, and Stephen closes with a rather melancholy meditation on modern Britain. Although this episode is as funny as ever, it left me feeling sad, and relieved that there's a season 3.

The sketches are: Intro: Rage/Hugh Sings "Where is the Lid?"/A Bit of Fry and Laurie (Deceased); Yellow Pages; Beauty of Ideas; Anarchy!; John & Peter Join the Church; Monologue: Hugh's First Kiss; Trying to Borrow a Fiver Off; Control & Tony; Introducing My Grandfather To; Outro: A Vision of Britain.
