That Mitchell and Webb Look : Season 1 Episode 6

Mitchell's character's suit becomes increasingly damaged throughout the episodes. The character Sheila seems to believe that society will return to normal if people continue practising pre-Event routines in a ritualistic fashion, such as producing game shows. Mitchell linked this to another sketch conceived by the writers in which inhabitants of Pompeii begin to frantically recycle after the nearby volcano erupts.[15]

In 2001 the two men were commissioned for a sketch show of their own, entitled The Mitchell and Webb Situation, which ran for six episodes on the now defunct channel Play UK. Despite the show running for a mere series it was reasonably well received. Wessex Scenes Darren Richman said "what the series lacked in budget, it made up for in magnificent material" and went on to call it "far superior to the vastly overrated Little Britain" and "perhaps the greatest forgotten sketch show of modern times." Eureka! TV said that the show "gushes forth an hilarious stream of surreal and quirkily inventive sketches", as well as calling it a "cult success". Eureka! TV released The Mitchell and Webb Situation on DVD in 2005. In the interview with Wessex Scene, Mitchell stated that he was "more proud of the way it turned out than annoyed that it was only aired on a small channel."&nbspMitchell and Webb's next project came in 2003, with starring roles in the Channel 4 sitcom Peep Show, as flatmates Mark Corrigan and Jeremy Usbourne respectively. The show originated from writers Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain's failed attempt to complete a team-written sitcom for the BBC, they had an old script that they wanted to revive and Mitchell and Webb helped out, with it eventually evolving into Peep Show. Despite low viewing figures (which almost got the show cancelled after series three) the show was received to wide critical acclaim. The British Sitcom Guide called it "without a doubt one of the best sitcoms of the decade." Ricky Gervais has been cited as saying "the last thing I got genuinely excited about on British TV was Peep Show, which I thought was the best sitcom since Father Ted". The BBC hailed Mitchell's performance in the series, citing that "As Mark Corrigan, David reached out to all those middle-aged men in a twentysomething's body, who believe drugs are boring and systems are necessary if society is to function at all."Mitchell has stated that he empathises with Mark and enjoys playing him and that he "agrees with many of [Mark's] opinions." Peep Show has aired six series with one more commissioned.

He hosted the second week of Channel 4's FAQ U, and appeared as himself in an episode of Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive, a panel show parody. He also appeared as one of the participants on the Channel 4 show TV Heaven, Telly Hell, and has appeared on two episodes of Question Time. In a 2007 interview with Digital Spy, Mitchell stated that he enjoyed panel shows, as they are "a game worth playing." The Radio Times named him "The Best Comedy Panel Show Guest" in the world, stating that "he's incredibly, disgustingly witty" and "even starting to make Paul Merton look slow on the uptake"

In Webb, the Government maintained thatOfficer Simmons' inquiry was simple administrative questioning "attendantto custody" which was exempt from the Supreme "Court's definition of interrogation"in Edwards. The Fifth Circuit rejected this claim and said:The record, however, does not support thisposition. First, it is undisputed that Simmons knew that Webb had beencharged with murder on a federal reservation. Second, the FBI agent thattook Webb to the jail testified that he did not inform the classificationofficer of Webb's prior suicide threat. Third, another classification officertestified that it is not normal procedure to ask a defendant the chargeagainst him since that information was on the booking card. Finally, Simmonstestified that he saw his own role as one of helping the FBI's investigationin whatever way he could. Given the facts of this case, we are inescapablyled to the conclusion that Simmons' question of Webb was not a questionnormally attendant to custody such that it was not "interrogation." Tothe contrary, Simmons expressly questioned Webb, and that questioning fallswithin the Supreme Court's definition of interrogation. Moreover, evenif no express questioning was involved, the entire episode, including thereference to a Christian burial, was reasonably likely to elicit an incriminatingresponse, and Simmons should have known that such a response was reasonablylikely. This Court holds that Simmons' questioning constituted a police-initiatedinterrogation. Consequently, Webb's jailhouse statements were obtainedin violation of Edwards, and should not have been admitted at Webb'strial.755 F.2d at 389 (footnote omitted).

Furthermore, we have previously found thatdisparity in rank or supervisory status is not dispositive on this issue.For instance, in United States v. Loukas, 29 MJ 385, 389 n.* (1990),we noted in a footnote: "This Court has implicitly held that a superiorin the immediate chain of command of the suspect subordinate will normallybe presumed to be acting in a command disciplinary function. However, thispresumption is not so broad or inflexible as to preclude a limited exceptionwhere clearly justified." (Citations omitted.) Thus, it was not the rankper se which we considered important but the role which the supervisorwas in when talking with the suspect or accused, and even that was notdispositive. Additionally, the Court there looked to the "circumstancesof the case to determine if what occurred was an interrogation or a requestfor a statement." Id. at 390 (Cox, J., concurring). 041b061a72
