Peep Show's dysfunctional duo returned to our screens last Sunday – giving us an ideal opportunity to look at some more classic mismatched pairs
After an all-too-long hiatus from our screens the much-awaited eighth season of Peep Show returned to Channel 4 on Sunday, providing a welcome opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with Jez and Mark, the Pov protagonists around which the show's tawdry universe revolves.
Despite their collective neuroses, the dysfunctional duo occupy opposite ends of the social spectrum, yet have somehow managed to share the same south London flat for more than seven years. But they're not the first odd couple to grace the idiot box. For years, opposites have attracted audiences to shows ranging from sedate sitcoms to edgy dramas.
Here's our pick of the best of them. But what do you think? Let us know your suggestions in the comments section below.
