  • A great episode, maybe one of the funniest!

    9.5
    It's the dreaded day when Mark has to return to work and deal with the people in the office's reaction to his and Sophie's failed wedding. However, when he goes to lunch he meets the wierd IT girl Dobby who he clicks with right away. So much so that the absolutely brilliant and classic cupboard scene takes place with her rubbing herself on him, only for him to have to face Sophie and her ex Jeff immediately afterwards. Meanwhile, Jeremy and Super Hans befriend Sophie's cousin Barney who gives them a sample of music which turns out to be better than theirs. The fact that they soon get distracted by who they think that he would rather suck off is just brilliant.

    Then the culmination of the episode makes you feel for all the charcters at once which is really clever.

    Sophie and Dobby come face to face which messes up Mark's chances and Barney's trauma at actually sucking off a slightly (but not very) embarassed Super Hans is hilarious.moreless
  • Mark has an office fling; Jeremy's band finds a new member. One of the grossest episodes of the Peep Show ever.

    8.8
    The episode started off brilliantly with the most inappropriate, awful and above all, funny, conversation regarding pedophilia. Only this show makes me laugh so hard at the absolute most awful things ever. Mark has to deal with returning to work and facing hatred of his co-workers after technically dumping Sophie at the altar. Jeremy gets a visit from Sophie's cousin (or was it brother?) who gives Jeremy an example of his music -- which turns out to be actually very good, so Super-Hans and Jez plot to claim the music as their own. All of this sounds like classic Peep Show stuff, right? And it is funny, awful, and gross, just like it's supposed to be. It's not the best episode ever, but a typical solid one.



    Best moments?



    1) Pedo conversation. 2) The storage room frottage with Dobby, the weird IT girl. 3) Jeremy's face when Barney tells him he'd rather suck off Super-Hans ... happy but disappointed at the same time. He didn't want to be picked but he didn't want to not be picked, either. Hahaha. 4) Johnson's appearance. Always good.moreless
