Stylistically, the show uses point of view shots (so well done) with the thoughts of main characters Mark and Jeremy audible as voiceovers – And what humorously awesome voices they have!
Peep Show is a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award-winning British sitcom starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb. The programme is written by Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, with additional material by Mitchell and Webb themselves, amongst others.
It has been broadcast since 2003, with the seventh series currently airing. The show’s seventh series makes it the longest-running sitcom in Channel 4 (its original funding broadcaster) history.
Peep Show follows the lives of two men in their late twenties and early thirties, Mark Corrigan (Mitchell), employed as a loan manager, and Jeremy Usbourne, an unemployed musician (Webb).
The pair met at the fictional Dartmouth University, and now share a flat in Croydon, South London. Mark was a loan manager at the fictional JLB Credit, and is financially secure, but awkward and socially inept, with a pessimistic and critical attitude. Jeremy, having recently split up with his girlfriend Big Suze, now lives in Mark’s spare room. He usually has a much more optimistic and energetic outlook on the world than Mark, yet his self-proclaimed talent as a musician is yet to be recognised, and he is not as popular or attractive as he would like to think himself, although he is the more successful with the opposite sex of the two.
One of the few series that consistently manages to make me smile and laugh aloud. It’s probably more fun if you watch this with someone close, kinda like ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ you can bounce the laughter between each other long after the joke’s dead and gone!
“You’re not a pedo. you’re definitely not a pedo”. Hehe Ahrg, I have to get my hands on the rest of the series somehow or something. It’s soooo good and I miss, it. Peep Show - It’s great!
