These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: That Mitchell And Webb Look
YMMVs for That Mitchell and Webb Look:
Genius Bonus: One The Quiz Broadcast sketch has the Test Card Girl writing "Revelation 6 13 15" on the blackboard.
Revelation 6:13-15 reads: "and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains."
Also, during the Cheesoid sketch, about an expert soup chef who loses his sense of smell. The chef has his copy of Perfume stolen, a book about a character with an overwhelming obsession with the sense of smell.
Harsher in Hindsight: Angel Summoner and BMX Bandit, about a duo of superheroes with vastly different power levels and the tension this creates, is a rather apt metaphor for Mitchell (Angel Summoner) and Webb's (BMX Bandit) later careers.
BMX Bandit: Your ability summon a horde of celestial superbeings at will is making my BMX skills a bit...redundant.
Shallow Parody: They are more frequent in That Mitchell And Webb Sound, with some sketches parodying things like Batman or Pinocchio with little or no resemblance to the parodied material, but they do show up a couple of times in the TV version as well.
YMMVs for That Mitchell and Webb Situation:
Ending Fatigue: A one-episode recurring gag where Mitchell and Webb play co-workers in various professions who are, in the end, revealed to be gay.
