Highlight for me was him drawing the blue onto cheddar, that cracked me up.

Talk about diminishing returns. This once great series...

...only joking. Boy, is it going out on a high. Three priceless episodes so far.

The best bit about it is it's like it's been on the whole time. It doesn't seem like 5 years between series. Also it's still funny. Shame it's the last ever season but at least they going out in style.

I still don't buy the Jeremy as gay angle though (in the past his homosexual exploits sounded like the boastful, fictional sort in general). Still funny though.

Really?! It's been latent since episode 4 of the first series!

Totally get that - although the stuff we have "seen" was drink/drug induced.. but seems odd to randomly put it into action. Hard to explain.

One of the greatest shows Britain has ever produced has aired its final episode and not a single comment? Bloody Star Wars.

It went out beautifully. As chaotic and hilarious as ever. A great way to bow out. I initially hoped for a movie, but best to leave it right here, I'd say.

And I loved it despite reading Mitchell's biography last week. He's irredeemable.

I thought it ended perfectly and there were some brilliant moments in this series. In the lead-up to this I re-watched every series (which doesn't take long given the length of an episode) and it really is consistently fantastic. Its another one of those series where I don't understand the views about it having had big dips in quality - but maybe that's because i've watched it from the start and have been so invested in the characters and I think the humour is right up my rue (as Steven Toast would say).

Rip Van W*nkel was the phrase of this series I think.

Really sad to see it go. I thought they might have continued it with a series every few years, checking in on them to see what they're up to. I guess you never know...

It didn't really feel like an ending, but I guess that was the point. Funny episode to top off a very surprising last series.

I suppose it was never going to have a fairy tale ending but it just seemed a bit lacking. The first few eps were hilarious but it just tapered down a bit to me.

Spend five minutes on Google and you'll get everything you need. I haven't read the article so don't stand by it, but the recent broadsheet takedown of him as a 'pound shop Stephen Fry' (which, I believe, noted Fry as 'poundshop' to begin with) is a good summary.

His opinions are all over the place and are as arrogantly presented as they are dumb, and are always ridiculously self serving. He backed the papers against the Leveson enquiry since it's easy money for him as columnist. He vocally backs the BBC against most criticism since he's on the panel show payroll, etc, etc.

He doesn't believe in God, but atheists are arrogant fools, apparently, for claiming God doesn't exist when they can't possibly know. This came from his biography. It seems he's bought into this piece of deflection philosophy and has, for the moment, actually forgotten the argument entirely. It's not a philosophical argument at all, but the denial of a bunch of fairy stories*, which make historical and scientific claims that make Star Wars look like a documentary.

By Mitchell's account, it would also be the height of arrogance to say that Darth Vader isn't in control of the weather.

*'fairy stories' in terms of childish storytelling and levels of believability. Not the content, which is pro rape, genocode, infanticide, slavery, etc, etc.

hmm ... all of that may or may not be true (and I'm not sure what the big deal is anyway), but he's a comedian not a politician ! Comedians develop an extension of their real persona and often play devil's advocate on various issues to make a point and to get some laughs. I'm a casual fan, enjoyed his bio and agree with most of his offered opinions.
