Peep Show is the innovative comedy series from Channel 4 seen through the eyes of the core characters. In an inventive twist, their inner thoughts and feelings can be heard - whether they be dark, stupid or embarrassingly over-blown. Wannabe popstar Jeremy (Robert Webb) is a lazy man with big ideas, mostly about himself. He has been thrown out by his ex "Big Suze" and has ended up living with Mark (David Mitchell), his old friend, who has a completely different no-pain-no-gain view of the world. Socially dysfunctional in their different ways, Mark and Jeremy have an unhealthy reliance on one another - a dependence that can turn to frustration. And to further complicate their existence, Mark - in his cack-handed way - is in pursuit of the love of his life, co-worker Sophie (Olivia Colman), while Jeremy lives in awe of his idiotic and manipulative mate Super Hans and their beautiful but brittle neighbour Toni.

This is probably one of the most underated and overlooked comedies ever and its a shame because peep show is quite simply pure genius.
I never saw this on tv but i saw the dvd when it was released and thought id give it a go and WOW within the first couple of minutes of watching it i was in stitches, its the kind of program you can watch ten times and it will still be as funny as the first time you watched it.
I loved the office and until i watched this i thought nothing could ever beat it. If you have a love for comedy then get this dvd it easily ranks up there with the office and alan partridge.
i still cant get over the scene where mark is talking to the careers guidance counciler/therapist watch it and youll know what i mean.
