cumberland sausage made me laugh straight away :(
you getting to it first
"I might just robin hood this baby"
IS THIS WHAT IT'S COME TO?
delicious cumberland final straw... dripping in onion gravy!
WOULD IT BE WRONG?
I hope Dobby comes back in another episode. She was cool.
i miss her already :(
Woo, she's back!
I've done this.
i less than three her
why has peep show depressed me but made me laugh in equal measures.
i swear it's getting grimmer
still, dobbyeis dancing ^_^
DiS Fantasy girl 2008.
probably the best in the series so far.
It was shit. Jez shouting "Elgar!" was brilliant though.
Gerrard seemed friendly in an indifferent manner.
Things have always been pretty painful for Mark, remember when he pretended to be a student in order to seduce that girl; only to come inches away from having sex with her before being told they should do it some other time, and that they have three years to take it slow.
so painful but brilliant
he would have gone with dobby - no doubt
i'll keep her company
last time i'm giving it a chance.
Yet again the twats come out on top.
I still laughed though
"delicious cumberland final straw"
what happened to the time when he used to make the right decisions? he really should have danced with jermemy at the end of that episode.
but to change him to the point where he's almost a different person is pointless.
this isn't a great parallel but the same thing happened in the simpsons - homer became more and more 'extreme' and people watching the show stopped empathising with him.
i'm not saying this will happen in peep show but it wouldn't suprise me, they're running out of ideas. they had a jeremy wanking scene in season 1 or 2 - to repeat it in season 5 is a regression
thought last weeks was better. sometimes i think they over do the cringe a little bit though.
dissers fawning over the socially awkward kooky girl, whodathunkit
1 lame episode
1 average episode
I think it's time to stop making them
Both the episodes I've seen from this series have been piss poor.
well it aint that bad I guess I never find it funny the first time I see it I dunno why.
caught both of them as late night repeats and thought they were much funnier second time round.
ratchet up the cringe, amazing show.
"maybe the data wasn't collated correctly, maybe she's my hanging chad"
"spermy atmosphere is cramping my style"
that the party had more of an end of series vibe than an end of episode one?
I really want to make a tea pie
But I really haven't enjoyed this series so far. In fact it was been a total let down.
Peep Show is probably my favourite ever TV programme, but the first three episodes of this series (barring perhaps the second) have been pish. Loads of the scenes seem like rehashed versions of previous scenes. Like Jez wanking over the Queen was just exactly the same as when he tried to wank over Mark's fantasy magazine thing. The jokes seem really obvious, and is it just me or is there a total lack of the introspective thoughts?
Last night's episode was just not Peep Show. You have always cringed along with it, but in a harmless sort of way. Last night I was genuinely cringing and a little bit sad for the patheticness of Mark. That's not what it's supposed to be like!
And that Saz character was just fucking annoying. I've never been annoyed by a Peep Show character before.
I'm not entirely sure why I have typed so much, but I feel like I have been beaten by a formerly caring lover. And I'm also avoiding studying.
See my post in the worst sitcoms thread. They've totally fucked this up. In fact I think it's making some of the older stuff look weak as well.
"I'd say the current series of Peep Show. Are Mark and Jeremy both borderline retarded now? Their characters have become totally one-dimensional. Did I miss the part where they both received serious head injuries?" The characters have regressed. Lame.
I may be delving too far into a character analysis of a sitcom character. But, since when did Jez steal stuff?! He is supposed to be a harmless, loveable rogue type. Since when has he committed credit card fraud? In previous series' he would have thought about it but not have done it. His lines just seem so fucking obvious.
Same with Mark. How many times can he say "THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE FINAL STRAW" etc etc.
They just aren't the same.
It's been pretty funny, with a few darker moments.
know if the episode on e4 tonight is the new one that was on 4 last night?
...I missed it.
wish I had watched it instead of doing what I did.
