Did You Know?

Goofs

In the office sketch with the principals playing Peter and John, there is an unusual twist in the familiar "boom mic visible" goof. On the walls are several framed certificates. The glass in the certificate to the right of the window offers a clear reflection of the mic and its boom following Peter's movements as he paces back and forth during the conversation. See more »

Back with a bang!
9 July 2011 | by intriguementSee all my reviews

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.

The sketches are: Introduction: Time, Where Did You Go?/Dancercise; Auto Parts; John & Peter; I Was Standing Here; Stephen Reads a Fascinating Historical Document; Mad Patient ("Cure me of my madness, or I won't put my shoes on, ever!"); England and Cream; Control & Tony and the Lie Detector; Michael Jackson (a real show-stopper - Stephen plays MJ without altering his appearance, accent, or demeanor).
