Just a little response to the above or below or probably I should say previous, or at least the last one I read... the very fact you did not get the humour in that episode far from showing the two Comics had lost their way, it just shows that you have some sort of deep rooted emotional problems with librarians, maybe you were bullied or something... i don't know. Basically you really should grow some Britishness.

Mitchell and Webb have perfectly summed up the feeling and attitude of the British nation.

well, okay that sounds a little like the Queen. but wouldn't she be proud of those two men who have gone against the comical norm and have actually tried to revolutionise the world of comedy. they tried to do the series with no laughter track but the thicko's didn't get it, so they had to add some so the stupid people knew when to laugh at an intellectual joke. although I fear it is all down to Mitchell, his comic genius is like that of, well a genius. erm, the ketamine is attacking me right now so i must not digress too much, any way. Mitchell is genuinely a comical genius. the stuff created by him is therefore funny, whether we like it or not. I would like to say to David, that although the lizard doesn't want to make it's self look silly or stand out from the crowd, it knows that shedding it's tail is the right decision... for it will make the predators momentarily happy and in the the long term the lizard will have come out on top, surviving and with a hell of a story to tell, he will be blessed with greatness of all the god's and will be celebrated amongst his people... I lost the story a little to the end, but basically... GET RID OF WEBB. I love you David Mitchell.
