They should stay in the studio...
10 September 2019 | by billyliteSee all my reviews

I am a fan of the show and consider its success is due mainly to the consistently sharp writing. This episode is mostly filmed outdoors and relies almost completely on sight gags. I think the humour suffers for it and hope they stay at home and in the studio from now on. I can understand the producers desire to do something different but for the first time I rarely laughed and the episode felt like generic TV sit-com which floods the stream-waves these days.
