my thoughts on my favourite comedies. today: peep show.

innovative in its style, peep show takes the point of view of its characters and shows it to the audience. not only do we hear the characters' voices, we hear their thoughts. it's because we know or know that people like mark & jeremy exist that we find it so funny. mark is an awkward social misfit who thinks he knows what he wants but in the end can't face it (when it comes to sophie, of course - in other relationships he just fails hands down) & jeremy is a lazy musician whom i'm pretty sure still thinks he's a teenager. he bloody well acts like it anyway! definitely, definitely worth a watch. i recommend the fourth episode of series one. you'll never listen to ocean drive in the same way again.
