A take on the 'odd-couple' sitcom, Peep Show revolves around the lives of two twentysomethings, Mark and Jeremy, who share a flat.
Mark is an office worker, with a bleak outlook on life. who obsesses over his co-worker, Sophie. Jeremy in contrast, is a lazy, shallow guy trying to make it in the music industry.
A unique twist that immediately sets the show apart form other sitcoms is the use of the first person view point [nb. the original show title was POV], where we get to see from the characters own eyes. We also get to hear internal thoughts and opinions which reveals stuff they wouldn't say out loud.
Mark and Jeremy are at the hospital awaiting the birth of Mark's baby. Sophie is determined to have a natural birth and doesn't want Mark to transfer any of his anxiety to the baby. Meanwhile, Jeremy is convinced he will never get over losing Elena, until he meets Zahra, whose boyfriend is in a coma.
Dobby, the object of Mark's desires, is now dating a graphic designer named Simon. Both Gerrard and Mark are determined to win her affections. Ben offers Jeremy the ideal job as head of development for his music web site.
Jeremy holds a book group at the flat in an effort to try and impress Zahra but apart from Mr Nice, Jeremy has never read a book. Mark is concerned by not being able to satisfy Dobby's sexual needs and decides to get some help for the problem.
Mark's baby's christening day arrives and he arranges to take Jeremy to the church with him. The duo end up getting locked in the hallway of Zahra's flat though.
Mark has invited his parents over for Christmas dinner. Everything has been planned down to the last detail but Jeremy has become over excited and Dobby and Super Hans show up as unexpected guests.
