My personal ranking of every Peep Show episode


peep-show-mark-jez

I've been wanting to do this post FOR AGES. I'm a huge fan of David Mitchell and Robert Webb, and although I had watched many peep show episodes, I became literally obsessed with the entire series towards the end of last year. Since then, I reckon I've watched an episode or two every day to cheer me up. They never fail. 

If you don't know Peep Show, it's basically a British sitcom about two guys who have been best friends since university and now live together in a flat. The only problem is, they are pretty much complete opposites. One guy, Mark, is what some people may call a "Fuddy Duddy", whilst Jez, the other guy, is a laid-back wannabe musician who spends his days sleeping with various random women and getting into scrapes. Jez has a mate, Superhans (my personal favourite character) who is.... well, he's pretty difficult to describe.

Having seen every episode countless times now, I thought it would be fitting to rank every episode in my opinion from worst to best. There are nine seasons though, so maybe err... get a beverage of your choice.

Now, being a new member of the Amazon affiliate programme (and perfectly willing to share this fact), I present you with a link to buy the complete series 1-9 boxset. If you do, I get some wonga, i'm not gonna lie. Anyway. On with the ranking.
