Mark is mugged by teenagers, but is cheered up in knowing Sophie's coming
over later that night for "work sex". Things don't go as planned and he fails
to get intimate with Sophie as a result of the muggers. Meanwhile, Jeremy
ends his relationship with Michelle as Big Suze is about to return, but is
shocked to discover she's not exactly single.
Mark is more than happy that Sophie is now his girlfriend but is disappointed
when she gets promoted and has to move. Jeremy and Super Hans are given a
pub from Jez' old friend Mary.
Jeremy makes secret plans to host a party in the flat, trying to get an ill
Mark away from his guest's eyes.
Jeremy finds himself developing a crush on Mark's sister when she comes to
stay, much to Mark's disapproval.
Jeremy gets called for jury service but soon complicates things by falling
for the defendant. Elsewhere, Mark and Sophie go clubbing.
Mark worries he and Sophie are drifting apart and proposes. Elsewhere Super-Hans
decides to give up drugs, and Jeremy once again gets intimate with past love,
Peep Show is back for a third series. First shown on our screens
back in 2003 and Mark and Jeremy's exploits are as hilarious as ever.
Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain have written the script in their
usual, unique style, narrating the feelings of the characters. This technique
provides many comical moments and enables the audience to build a relationship
with these characters. Mark and Jeremy's usual love/ hate relationship is
displayed much as in the previous series and keeps provoking the question
'are they actually friends?'
The comedy is even more close to the bone in the third series
with much riskier and controversial things are said. I love the fact that
the honesty you feel from the characters is brought out in the controversial
thoughts they each have.
Jeremy's band mate Super-Hans, the drug taking rock star makes
several appearances in series three, along with many other additional characters
including Johnson, Sophie and Big Suze. All the characters are perfect in
the show and add to the comedy dynamic brilliantly.
On the whole 'Peep Show' series three is an amazing, strange
and hilarious show with an excellent cast and brilliant writing. Its another
fantastic comedy show from Channel 4 and if you liked the quirky "Greenwing"
"Smack the Pony" and "Big Train" then this is definitely for you. Due to the
mature content in the show it's probably not for the light-hearted but still
an excellent comedy series. Season
The sound and picture are very clear with Dolby Digital (2.0)
Stereo and 16x9 Anamorphic
Consists of extended versions of existing scenes rather than new material.
The Stand Alone Scenes
Three separate scenes that tie in with the episodes, "Mark and Jeremy's messages"
from the first episode, "Johnson's Frankfurt pitch" from the episode 3 and
"Mark and Jez on the quantox" from episode 6. There really creative little
features that shows what happened in parts of the programme they left out.
The way they are makes them different from deleted scenes for example the
messages from "Mark and Jeremy's messages" are set on a video message. There
really funny and just add to the genius of Peep show.
The audio commentary is by David Mitchell and Robert Webb and it's humorous
and packed with interesting facts about the shows and scenes and also other
ideas they had for the show.
There are not many bonus features on the DVD and I think there
could have been more, however the DVD menus are great and an improvement from
the previous DVDs. The series itself is brilliant and I think it's a worthwhile
DVD to buy.
