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...]]>

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.
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. :-)
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.
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!
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!

This is about as good as it gets for sitcoms. Really this is the BBC version of Seinfeld but with more drugs and more swearing and with slightly more endearing characters. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Martin Wegner
