How did I completely miss Mitchell and Webb’s Peep Show when it was on the electric television?!
It was my cousin Zack who emailed me a few months ago from the United States of Americans and recommended it. “Why is British comedy so much better than American?” he said. Or something like that. He uses all lowercase letters though.
So I added the first 3 series to my Amazon DVD Rental list and waited. And waited.
And eventually when Mr and Mrs Amazon seemed fit to pass a postbox (3 weeks after I sent the last one home) the series 1 DVD dropped through my letterbox this morning. (It literally did, that wasn’t a euphemism or anything.)
And Zack was right: it’s hilarious. How did I miss it when it was being broadcast for the first time on the public airwaves?
(It a bit rude in places though. Just like real life, I guess.)
By the way, a tip for you: if you are going to search Google Images for “Peep Show” I suggest you use a few additional keywords. Like “mitchell”, “web”, “channel 4” … or just anything!
