I was looking forward to this new show, because David Mitchell and Richard Ayoade are personalities I really enjoy watching, but Episode 1 was a bit of a let down, because everyone looked nervous and it all seemed a bit wooden and not very funny.
Episode 2 was a revelation, though, as the entertainment went up a few gears and everything was more relaxed, flowed better, and was very funny and enjoyable. For me, the star of the show is Richard Ayoade, as he never fails to amuse. David Mitchell does a good job, and it's always fun to see him expressing his thoughts and arguing with people. Micky Flanagan doesn't appeal to me as much as the other two, but he has an energy and enthusiasm that does create a few laughs.
I like the concept of the show, as it's stimulating but also ripe for comedy. Having a guest celeb read out the quotes is a masterstroke, as you get banter between them and the panel, and it really adds to overall charm and watchability. Overall, it's a show I recommend to everyone who likes comedy panel shows, and I look forward to further episodes and hopefully a second series.
