Trivia

'Peep Show' was originally set to be called 'POV', after the show's Point-of-view perspective. The idea however was scrapped as writers Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain felt that the title would make the show sound 'too gimmicky'. See more »

Excellent British Comedy
12 December 2003 | by tramsbottomSee all my reviews

This is a little gem I found sadly relegated to late-night TV. It's an innovative comedy about two losers who are trying to be cool and get the girls, shot entirely with point-of-view angles (characters talk to the camera as a person or the camera IS the character, depending on who's speaking).

I cannot recommend this show highly enough. British comedy seemed to be on the wane, but this is one of the best written, funniest shows around.

Expect copycat shows using the same style of shooting POV any time soon.
