    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.

    I wanted to hate this show. It is vile, offensive to women, filled with references to illicit drug use and promiscuous sexual encounters, allI wanted to hate this show. It is vile, offensive to women, filled with references to illicit drug use and promiscuous sexual encounters, all the things your first feminist lesbian college professor warned you about on the day you reclaimed your manhood by walking out and giving a room full of hairy-armpitted freshmen girls the finger. I love it. What is there to say? Mark is the picture of narcissistic insecurity. Good ole' Jezzer is the perfect combination of idiot and Jackhole. (I think you know what I mean.) As a woman, I am intrigued by the storytelling ability of the writers and actors on this series, to make me laugh time and again, to the point of having to stop the program and find my breath again, in spite of myself, in spite of my gender, in spite of my ability to look at these men knowing full well I would not lay hands on any part of their anatomy under any circumstances and, still, find them utterly charming. If I love it that much, at least one third of the female population would and, guaranteed, ninety percent of men. It is a retelling of The Odd Couple, if The Odd Couple spent their lives in pursuit, simultaneously, of career advancement/sexual gratification, a serious long-term relationship with a pretty yet boring girl/sexual gratification with a Mary Jane chaser, the acquisition of property via marriage without love or the sectioning of an old friend/sexual gratification with any female who happens by at any given moment and some beer and some drugs and a good go around of what passes for conversation with Super Hans (band-mate and addict). Give it a try. Remasculate yourself. Expand

    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 youIf 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

    Following the ups and downs of flat mates Mark and Jeremy Peep Show differentiates itself from other comedy shows thanks to a unique twist.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 wordCDA 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
