"I think you'll find it's the hyssop that makes all the difference."
12 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"A Bit of Fry & Laurie" sets the gold standard for sketch comedy shows! In its third season, the show benefits from a generous budget and the increased experience of its writing/acting duo. Although they feature the same two faces we've been watching for more than 12 episodes now, the sketches are still fresh, clever, and hilarious.

This episode is a solid finale to the third season. I didn't care for the joke shop and kitchen sketches, as they rely on the gross-out factor instead of real humor (a disappointing departure from the show's usual style). However, Hugh and Stephen redeem themselves with the side-splitting "Model Aeroplanes" (counterpointing Stephen's pretentious Orientalist queen to Hugh's ingenuous working-class lad) and a clever send-up of American court TV.

The sketches are: Cold Open: Magazine Leaflets; Model Aeroplanes; Joke Shop; A Quite Delightful Restaurant; Tahitian Kitchen; My Favorite Pants; The Bishop and the Warlord ("Set yourself on fire"); Litigious Americans ("Grievious internal bruisality"); Flying a Light Aeroplane Without Having Had Any Formal Instruction With; Cocktail: Berliner Credit Sequence.
