You don’t want to miss the last segment of this episode, so great. It works as both a series ender and a season ender.

Regarding Peep Show and That Mitchell & Webb Look, either worth the watch?
sprspndx, give PeepShow a watch, it’s great. It’s one of the best UK comedy shows in ages. The style and the way it’s shot is really different than nearly everything else. The same 2 guys who are on PeepShow are on That Mitchell & Webb Look, but I didn’t get into that show, but at least give PeepShow a try.
