The collected scripts of the unique, slightly strange, often weird, but always hilarious award-winning sitcom Peep Show. Meet Mark and Jeremy: two very ordinary weirdos. Mark, a middle-aged man trapped in a twentysomething's body, is the sensible one--a loan manager with seven GCSEs ("back when a GCSE actually meant something") and an unhealthy obsession with World War II. His flatmate, Jeremy, is a grade-A work-shy freeloader with sketchy fruebds. He dreams of being a world-class musician but can't seem to get out of bed in the morning. They hate themselves, each other, and the world. This is their story. Uniquely filmed--shot from the characters' point of view and edited so the viewer hears their unspoken thoughts, as well as the dialogue between them--Peep Show has attracted both a cult following and critical acclaim. Now, Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, the creators of the show, have pulled together and annotated the scripts of all five series and written hilarious extra material to take us even deeper into the minds of our socially inept and wonderfully weird heroes and their slightly strange friends. A perfect example of British comedy writing at its very best, this book is the perfect present for quirky comedy fans everywhere.
