Is It Time For Peep Show To Grow Up?

Something spectacular is finally happening to the Peep Show layabouts. After six years of squandered experiences, the chalk-and-cheese flatmates are welcoming a new baby into the world (this Friday at 10pm on Channel 4). Some of you may have already seen the online preview, but for those of you that haven’t let us reassure you: this won’t stop them being so amusingly irresponsible.

No matter what challenge is thrown at them, Mark (David Mitchell) and Jez (Robert Webb) will always mess it up; that’s their charm. Take their last sighting, for instance: at the end of season six Sophie (Olivia Colman) was forced to drive herself to the maternity ward after father-to-be Mark kept stalling the car (he failed to pass his driving test, then lied about it) and drunk friend Jez almost crashed it.

Instinctively, the thought of the same incompetent buffoons helping at the birth ...

A Peek at Peep Show's Sixth Series

We have to admit, we aren't the most ardent Peep Show viewers. Don't get us wrong, we like the show--we just don't always remember to sit down and watch it.

If, like us, you're an outsider, then it might help you to think of the humour in Peep Show being a bit like The Office. That's not to say the shows are similar, they aren't at all, but in both there is a reliance on making the audience feel fairly uncomfortable. This kind of humour can work well, as long as you can get past your discomfort. With Peep Show, we think the writers manage to tread the line expertly, you never feel so utterly mortified that you have to switch off the TV. It's certainly got a much lower mortification factor than The Office and it's also a walk in the ...

Political comedy The Thick of It is up for three awards, while Glee misses out on an international nod.

The Thick of It Leads TV BAFTA Nominations

Political comedy The Thick of It is up for three awards, while Glee misses out on an international nod.

There were surprises a plenty today as nominations were announced for this year's British and Film Television Awards. While former TV winner The Thick of It received the most nominations--including two for its leading actors--popular shows such of Doctor Who and Glee were omitted altogether.

Doctor Who, which is often included in the best drama section, received no recognition this year, due in part to the fact its only entries came in the form of several one-offs as part of David Tennant’s long farewell. Instead, Being Human, Misfits, Spooks and The Street compiled the catalogue of best drama series. Previously the popular sci-fi show has won three awards, the most recent for editing in 2009.

In the international category--where nominations were awarded to Family Guy, Mad Men, Nurse Jackie ...

Bafta TV winners 2009

The 2009 British Academy Television Awards gave nods to stars including Harry Hill, David Mitchell and Anna Maxwell Martin; however, their wins were unexpected by the voters of the TV.com Bafta polls who pitted other celebrities and shows as their favourite for the awards.

Below are this year's Bafta Television Award winners and a comparison with the preferred choice of TV.com users--and you didn't agree with the academy on a single award! Did the right people win?

Situation Comedy
Winner: The IT Crowd
TV.com choice: The Inbetweeners

BAFTA winner The IT Crowd came second in our online poll with 25 percent of the total vote, while The Inbetweeners came first with a massive 43 percent.

Comedy Performance

British comedy celebrated at BAFTAs

Absolutely Fabulous creators Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders were given the top award at the 62nd Bafta Television awards last night. The comedy duo received a special fellowship from multi-award winning actress Dame Helen Mirren, who praised their 30-year career television saying: "they are just so good, so brilliant and so damn cool."

Harry Hill was named the UK's best entertainment performer for the second year in a row -- the third overall -- for his ITV comedy show Harry Hill's TV Burp.

On collecting the award Hill said: "I never thought I'd get three Baftas for a clip show. Ridiculous." The comedian lost out in the entertainment show category, however, which was awarded to Simon Cowell's reality hit The X Factor.

Peep Show's David Mitchell was awarded best comedy performance while The IT Crowd beat Peep Show in ...

Essentially, a take on The Odd Couple, Peep Show revolves around the lives of Mark Corrigan and Jeremy Osbourne; two twenty-somethings who share a flat.

Mark works in an office and has a bleak outlook on life; he's infatuated with his colleague, Sophie Chapman. Jeremy, in contrast, is a lazy, shallow man trying to make it in the music industry.

A unique twist that immediately sets the show apart form other sitcoms is the use of the first person view point [the original show title was POV], where we get to see from the characters own eyes. We also get to hear internal thoughts and opinions which reveals things they wouldn't say out loud.
