All 30 episodes from Series 1-5 of the Channel 4 cult comedy series, chronicling the private - and totally dysfunctional - inner thoughts of two 20-something flatmates living in Croydon. Mark (David Mitchell) is the sensible one, a working professional with a slightly disconcerting interest in WWII, while Jeremy (Robert Webb) is a lazy waster with half-arsed dreams of becoming a musician but who can never get his act together.
Series 1: After being thrown out by his ex-girlfriend, Jeremy--an egotistical wannabe pop star--moves in with his socially-backward college friend Mark. While Jeremy lives in awe of his idiotic mate, Super Hans, and their beautiful but brittle neighbour Toni, Mark is in hot pursuit of the love of his life, co-worker Sophie.
Series 2: Mark finds an obstacle in the way of his quest for office crush Sophie’s love, in the form of his macho rival, Jeff. Meanwhile, Jeremy has fallen madly in love with a confused Californian Christian named Nancy, and embarks on a visa wedding which he hopes will be 'the happiest administrative procedure of their lives'.
Series 3: Jeremy tries to get over his disastrous marriage to Nancy by embarking on a series of ill-fated relationships with women, one of whom is Mark's sister. In the meantime, Mark has finally managed to start dating Sophie--only to discover she is being relocated to Bristol!--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A nervous negative sarcastic white collar man teams up with an off beat laid back drifter.... pure gold
This box contains all 5 currently existing seasons and some bonus material like behind-the-scenes and extra scenes which are also very enjoyable.
The way the grey areas of relationships is articulated and made light of is incredible. All the secret thoughts, anxieties, and dysfunctional behaviour that we all go through with the opposite sex is laid bare in every episode. The only other show that comes close to shining a light on these intangible grey areas of life and love is maybe Seinfeld, which isn`t as stuffy, inhibited and British as The Peep Show. Take the relationship of Mark and Sophie as a prime example. This isn't your typical King Of Queens, Mad About You, Chandler and Monica sit-com couple who have their ups and downs but basically love each other. Mark has such contempt for Sophie and feels completely trapped in the relationship. I've been there -- and I'm sure there are many, many other people out there who have also been stuck with someone they don't really want ... until of course that person dumps them! As Mark says to Jeremy in Series 4: "So now she's finished with you, suddenly you're in love with her again." As if Mark is the stupidest person alive, Jeremy says: "Exactly. DUR! That's how love works, Mark."
Absolutely brilliant. Buy this show now! ... Although with Series 5 currently being made, you may want to wait until the Series 1 to 5 boxset comes out if you`re looking to buy every Peep Show in one go.
Excellent script and performances by Mitchell and Webb and a varied and brilliant supporting cast make this addictive stuff. Watch one and you'll just want to watch another...and another...and another. I think I got through the whole set in less than 2 weeks and I'm hardly a telly addict. Maybe there's some subliminal message in the quirky but catchy theme "tune" ?
What makes it so good ? I just love the way the characters voice their real thoughts when dealing with others, particularly the girlfriends. They say one thing but think another, as we all do! You are in their shoes and seeing through their eyes, even being kissed by them. It is original, incisive and sometimes absolutely brilliant.
The main characters are excellent, Mark the loan officer and Jez his wannabee musician unemployed flat/best mate. It's a bit "Men Behaving Badly" but with the shock factor ramped up ten-fold (those easily offended should NOT buy this). As mentioned, the supporting cast shine - drugged up Super Hands, on-off fiancée Soph, alpha male Johnson, Toni, Dobby, Big Suze and many more mentalists. Look out for Eastender Minty's Aussie freeloading girlfriend who plays Mark's...Aussie freeloading girlfriend.
You've been warned, there's a lot of drug references in here amongst the truly bizarre situations and some of their antics may have you squirming in your seat. One or two of the episodes do mis-fire slightly but when they hit, ("James Bond" Jez sleeping with Sophie's mum stands out for me) you'll be in fits of laughter.
Now well under twenty quid, it would be rude not too!
David Mitchell managed to infuse every word with sarcasm and irony and Robert Webb is outstanding as the selfish, talentless and inadequate Jez, they both live the characters and never once look as if they're acting. Peep Show is The Office with its sleeves rolled up and spoiling for a fight - you have been warned.
