That's not terribly important really, Toni. You see, we're very much in love.

The second season of Peep Shows sees the characters a bit more bedded in. The season this time sees Mark's continued awkward pursuit of Sophie while Jez finds himself involved with a sexually adventurous American girl called Nancy. In terms of these threads filling a season (even a short UK season) it does a good job and each episode has a very good flow to it, entertaining in its own right and fitting into the whole.
Having said that though, the appeal here is the comedy rather than the narrative structure which it exists within. On this front the season is very strong. There are plenty of consistent laughs and lines that fit the nature of the characters really well. Jez's self-centered outlook is well played out in his own head while Mark is consistently hilarious and very well observed although I think I feel this way in part because he is the character that I associated most with. The supporting characters continue to be good whether they are devices within the plot or funny in their own right. The performances from Mitchell and Webb are natural and convincing most people assume that they are the writers of the material as well and it speaks to their ease within the characters that this is a common mistake.
Peep Show is looking pretty consistent and this second season is funny and engaging throughout thanks to great dialogue and delivery.
