Movie Reviews

Great show!

"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."

"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"'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. :-)"
Peep Show is excellent (but not for all tastes)

"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."
Sheer genius!

"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!"
