  • Starring: Robert Webb, Olivia Colman, David Mitchell
  • Summary: Essentially, a take on The Odd Couple, Peep Show revolves around the lives of Mark Corrigan and Jeremy Osbourne; two twenty-somethings who share a flat.

    Mark works in an office and has a bleak outlook on life; he's infatuated with his colleague, Sophie Chapman. Jeremy, in contrast, is a
    lazy, shallow man trying to make it in the music industry.

    A unique twist that immediately sets the show apart form other sitcoms is the use of the first person view point [the original show title was POV], where we get to see from the characters own eyes. We also get to hear internal thoughts and opinions which reveals things they wouldn't say out loud.

    If you are a male, you NEED to watch this show (mainly because its main characters are two males). I'm not even saying you "should" or you "must" watch this show. Quite literally, you NEED to watch this show. It is undoubtedly the greatest satirical, witty, FPS style show that will ever be made in history. It is SO good that even females will appreciate its genius. I cannot stress how much you actually NEED to go watch this show ASAP. Expand

    Longest running sitcom ever on Channel 4. No surprises, possibly my favourite TV show, why?
    Its funny, clever and greatly acted by Mitchell
    and especially Webb. Expand

    For anyone enjoying the humor of Arrested Development or 30 Rock, this is another *great* show. Superb chemistry, hilarious story lines and characters. Commit to watching the first 3 episodes, and you'll be hooked. Expand

    Absolutely this show is the funniest I've seen in long time. Agree with the other reviews the content is relate-able by any guy who is in his post 20s. Just found it on Hulu and watched 5 out of 6 seasons immediately until my computer literally melted down. Can't wait to see the sixth season! Expand

    Following the ups and downs of flat mates Mark and Jeremy Peep Show differentiates itself from other comedy shows thanks to a unique twist. Filmed from the characters point of view the, often strange, inner thoughts and feelings of the two main characters can be heard by the viewer. From this premise the show manages to produce cringe worthy comedy at its very best often matching anything seen in The Office or The Inbetweeners (which are also excellent of course). It is just a shame we only get six new episodes a year. Expand

    CDA is correct in that there is something about this show that appeals most strongly to men. It is also interesting to note he used the word "literally" in his review as the characters in this program use that word excessively. Despite that, the show is pretty entertaining. You are likely to see bits of people you know in these characters. Expand
