In quite sad style, since series one came out on DVD, I haven't gone a week without watching Peep Show.

Best

Ever.

We have all the series of Peep Show On Demand on Virgin Media (which, whilst I enjoy, I also think is harsh to the ppl that bought them) and I watched the current final episode the other day. I think its even better the second time you watch it. :P

I own all of the peep show dvds and I don't find it harsh that they're all 4od. I'd much rather own them.
But I agree, I think that all of the latest series was better on a second viewing. It didn't quite hit home instantly like the other ones the first time round, but on subsequent viewings it's definitely amazing.

Have you guys seen Magicians? If not, don't, absolutely nowhere near as good as Peep Show.

The thing I love about Peep Show is no matter how many times you go back and watch it you can find something piss funny you missed the last time.

That's so true. So many people say that about so many shows, but with Peep Show I genuinely find myself discovering hilarious little bits that have simply never registered before.

I don't know about you guys, but I find myself quoting Peep Show in everyday life.... all the time! Something will happen and remind me of Peep Show.

For example, I asked Carla what we were having for a roast once. She replied 'Pork'. All I could think of was, "What's the matter, I thought you liked Pork?"

I find I can't get through the day without dropping in an Alan Partridge, Peep Show or The Office quote. There's just always a quote from one of these for most situations.
Put me and my two brothers together and it's a quote-a-thon like no other. It's almost possible that we can have an entire conversation using mainly quotes. Bit sad really...ho hum.

One bit that still gets me is "FLOSS IS BOSS" pretty sure I've got a few odd looks from shouting that before now.

Haha, me too! Brilliant. Used to just shout it on nights on, much to the bemusement of everyone around me. Another great one is referring to things as "the bad thing". Must have said it a dozen times a day since re-watching the episode about 2 months ago.

I'm trying to figure out which episode "I'm a human being, you're a human being..." "So let's just call it a bloody good [not sure what the word is here]" comes from. In fact, in lieu of knowing what episode it is, I'd settle for the proper quotation plz.

Oh god...This is going to frustrate me enormously now, as I can hear this in my head. I'm pretty sure it's Corrigan who says it...but I am equally stuck as to the reason he says it, and equally what the missing word is...

Currently watching America's Most Hated Family christ, I'd heard about this but nothing could prepare me for the bigoted bile people are spouting. They're boycotting a hardware store for selling a Swedish vacuum cleaner, because a Swedish priest promoted homosexuality and thus they assume all Swedish people are "fags". :shock: I always thought Jeremy Kyle was full of scum but this is beyond belief.

The sweden thing was because the swedish priest actually spoke out against homosexuality and was arrested/reprimanded for doing so. Thus Sweden is a nation of fag lovers, and should burn in hell. Presumably the vacuum cleaner manufacturers of Sweden are the leaders of this fag loving conspiracy against God.

These people are unbelievable.
