Did You Know?

Goofs

It is revealed that Johnson was an alcoholic for 15 years, and like many people he believes that recovering alcoholics should completely abstain from drink. However in "Mark Makes a Friend" (his first appearance in series 1) he is shown drinking a glass of wine while having dinner with Mark in one scene, and a pint of lager when he meets him in a bar in another scene. If he was an alcoholic at that point, he probably wouldn't be able to easily have one casual drink, if he had given up drinking, he wouldn't be drinking at all. See more »

Quotes

Jeremy Usborne: [voiceover] What's so great about sex anyway? It's all the mind. Her soft skin is just a big bag full of kidneys and mucus and half-digested bits of pie. I bet she's got really nice kidneys. Oh yeah, I'd fuck those kidneys real good.

Two really frustrated guys..
19 January 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jeremy asks Nancy for commitment, definitely a free spirit she's not happy with the idea, so declines, seeing through his protestations. He tries feeding the homeless to impress her. Meanwhile Mark sees Jeff and Sophie getting closer at work, enjoying a few intimate moments. Alan sends Mark and Sophie away to a conference in Aberdeen for ten days, the news doesn't stop Mark from stalking the couple. In doing so Mark is witnessed and filmed with a can in the park, put on the news as anti social the news gets around work, Johnson wonders if Mark's an alcoholic and accompanies him to an AA meeting. Homeless guy Nim moves in too, to get him off the Street and out of Nancy's apartment. Mark kicks him out, with news that his dad is coming to visit.

Jeremy's frustrations and Nancy giving up on sex were funny and well played out.

Peep Show is getting more and more surreal and funnier with every episode, I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting to know the characters better, or if the writing has changed but I am just in love with this show. This is a particularly rich episode, so much to it. 8/10
