Critic Reviews for Peep Show Season 5

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

I find it less funny and more labored, as the comedy between the two male friends depends on layers of contemptuous dependence and on a kind of faux-stilted dialogue.

Five series into Britain's most brilliant sitcom, and Peep Show's writers, Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, are still finding fresh ways to heap humiliation and disgrace on to their flatsharing anti-heroes.

There were an awful lot of treats shoehorned into this last episode of the series - laughter, pain, joy, tears. I did almost cry at one point, at Jeremy's mid-life crisis. That is a sign of good comedy.

Magnificent.

To sustain a sitcom in which the protagonists aren't very likable is a feat in itself... They are horrible and yet somehow enormously loveable.

Peep Show is both excruciating and excruciatingly funny.

Our favourite losers are still on top form...

The show continues to be wonderfully observed, though it's the characters' hilarious descent into dark, dark places that make it so compelling. Never was the interior monologue used to grubbier, or better ends.

Apr 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's some neatly observed and very funny stuff here, mostly seen through the craven eyes of Jeremy: his delight at leaving a boring play before it's finished is perfectly drawn
