I can't remember if I asked what your real is...

I'm now able to write something about the show because my brain had returned form a sabbatical in the Lake District.
There were several of Mitchell and Webb's sketches that stuck in my mind, and made me laugh a lot. Four sketches were filmed live in front of us (with two or three takes per scene), and the rest were piped into our sockets with the gift of 'VT'. The sketches often began with traditional set-ups, but were turned on their heads with post-modern twists. There hasn't been this kind of quality sketch show for a long time - and in fact, I'm stuggling to think of any right now. We either have bad sitcoms like 'Two Pints', crude sketch shows like 'Little Britain' or weird/silly series like 'The League of Gentlemen' and the Boosh.
Here are a few of the best sketches what I can remember now:
'Numberwang' - a spoof gameshow with contestants shouting out numbers at random to be praised with the Host calling "That's Numberwang" at certain combinations.
'Emergency Medical Room' - an ER style hosptial drama, but which is very light on the technical jargon thgat makes that show so realistic - "Oh no, I've given him too much electric."
'Big Talk' - loud, fast current affairs programme hosted by the bellowing Raymond Terrific - hammering out issues like the African AIDS pandemic by brainstorming in a gaudily-lit studio.
