The Netflix gods of instant streaming have smiled down upon us this holiday season. Clear your schedules, close your blinds and hunker down: All seven seasons of "Peep Show" are now available to be beamed straight to your TV.
"Peep Show" is a British sitcom that follows two hopeless guys, Mark Corrigan and Jeremy Usborne. On paper, Mark (played by David Mitchell) seems like the more upstanding human being than slacker Jeremy (played by Robert Webb) because he has a job, his own apartment and pays for things with money that he earned. But in reality, they both are different kinds of terrible. Mark is awkward and has a knack for saying just the wrong thing at an even worse time, and Jeremy thinks he's God's gift to music, but has more luck with the ladies than Mark. They live together and argue a lot.
The show is shot using point-of-view camera angles, so you really feel like you're part of the show while watching. But you also get to go inside Mark's and Jeremy's thoughts, as their inner monologues, freakouts and worries are audible to us all. It's seriously brilliant. And since it's a British show, each season is only six episodes long, so you can totally knock this one out of the park in a single weekend.
