Editorial Reviews

While there are some things people will never say or do, there's nothing they'll never think. Welcome to the private world of Jeremy and Mark -- two very ordinary weirdos. Wannabe pop star Jeremy (Robert Webb) is a lazy man with big ideas, mostly about himself. His old friend and roommate is the astonishingly tragic Mark (David Mitchell), an obsessive loser with a no-pain, no-gain view of the world. In an inventive twist, Jeremy and Mark's inner thoughts can be heard - whether they be dark, stupid, or embarrassingly over-blown. Or sometimes all three...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show! November 27, 2005
By not_dpk
Format:DVD
I am happy to hear that there is a second and third season of this show. The first season was brilliant. Non-stop laughs over the insane "odd couple" behavior with Jeremy's crackpot ideas, and Mark's judgmental tolerance.

The only downside is the lack of episodes. Only 6 episodes in the first series. However, that 6 episodes is about the same price as many 2 hour movies on DVD.

Give it a shot. I love this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quotable, Notable, Laugh-Out-Loud Riot August 11, 2005
Format:DVD
As an American, I was thrilled to live in Europe last year; however, the Irish, Welsh, Scots and English have a marked difference in their preferred "sitcoms" to our own beloved overblown, baudy, curse-filled ones. I like the original Coupling, and indeed the original Office, but when I saw Peep Show for the first time, I fell completely in love.

Mark and Jeremy are roommates. The camera follows not only their lives, through their eyes (as in, the frame holds the hand and the cup of coffee coming towards the "mouth" etc.) but also their internal monologues. Hilariously awkward Mark is in love with Sophie, his office chum, and doesn't know when or how to give up his madcap pursuit. Jeremy dreams of being a rock star, but as yet fulfills only the role of lazy messy roommate.

From the first episode onward I was laughing out loud, constantly. I want to say it's a new kind of Britcom; but, rather, it's got a charm and comedy uniquely its own. I wouldn't place it in the same category as other popular "BBC America" productions...it's certainly much funnier than some of the stuff we have on American networks these days...

I've been dying for it to come out on US dvd since last year, and I'm thrilled to be ordering it now.

I have heard that Fox picked up "Peep Show" and its premise, but I am not sure if this means they are recasting and rewriting, or if they're airing the original Channel 4 episodes from the UK. Let's all hope for the latter!

I hope you enjoy Peep Show as much as I do. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Peep Show is excellent (but not for all tastes) September 24, 2005
By Mark
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved this collection of six episodes, but I can understand why some people don't like it. The humor is similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, and The Office. The story is about two roommates, one is an uptight business flunky, the other a lazy musician wannabe. The main characters are always getting themselves into embarrassing situations (mostly with the opposite sex). Think of an early 30 something Larry David with an office job in England.

I'm huge fan of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, and The Office so I think Peep Show is hilarious! If you are a fan of that type of humor check out Peep Show. It's a great deal for under $20.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never laughed so hard in public... May 12, 2006
Format:DVD
I came across "Peep Show" on a Virgin flight from London to Los Angeles. They had all of the episodes from the first series, and I thought I'd watch an episode to see how I liked it. Five minutes in, I was laughing hysterically. I know I was making a fool of myself, as I was laughing uncontrollably at something only on my screen that no one else could hear!

The Office (UK) is my favorite TV show of all time, but "Peep Show" may be catching up...It's just so candid and truthful I can't believe it. I wish they had it here to rent, because I keep recommending it to my friends but no one seems to carry it (i.e. Blockbuster). I had to buy it so that I could let my friends borrow it, and I always have such a hard time getting my copy back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer genius! November 13, 2005
By moonsky
Format:DVD
This is the kind of show you're either going to get and love, or not and hate (a-la the office). As other reviewers have said, it follows the life of these two sad individual roommates. Yes, there is a fair amount of swearing in the show, but people do tend to swear more in London (where this is set) compared to many places in the USA (in general conversation). It is very quirky and certain parts make you feel uncomfortable for the characters, but again, this is not meant to be a laugh out loud comedy show, the humor is far more subtle.

So, if you need a laugh track to help you on your way, don't bother, however if you can appreciate clever, sometimes subtle humor from the U.K, then this might be right up your alley!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous November 11, 2005
Format:DVD
This comedy follows in the English comedy tradition of cringe worthy characters (Faulty Towers - Basil Faulty, The Office - David Brent etc) whose delusional nature and general ability to make any situation awkward leads to tragic hilarity. If you're the type of person who enjoys dubbed laughter and superficial "Friends" type characters, then this isn't the DVD for you, as the humour doesn't have standard joke-line punch-line make up. Rather what's funny about this comedy is the characters' lost nature, all trying desperately to be something that they not, never sure of what they should be doing and messing up anything that they do undertake. To that extent, this isn't a good comedy if you're not paying full attention to it, but if you watch closely and think about the characters' motivation then I this is probably the best comedy in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars this show will have you DYING with laughter.... August 20, 2005
By K.L.
Format:DVD
Im an American and was living in London last fall... I happened upon Peep Show just flipping through my 5 channels, and was instantly hooked... Mark and Jeremy are F-ing HILARIOUS, at least their thoughts are, and this show is so true to life and wacky it will have you in stitches! I only happened to see like 2 and a half episodes, and saw one commercial saying that the first season is coming on DVD, and i cant wait to get it and watch the rest... its so much fun, you gotta see it!

More peep show dvds please?
I also wish the other series' would be on region 1 DVD. For now all the episodes through season 6 are on youtube, they are in 8-10 minute segments, but you can watch the entire series from beginning to end
