Last Sunday saw the return of loveably cringe-worthy Mark and Jeremy to our tele-waves as ‘Peep Show’ series eight took to the screen. The tale of two socially awkward men living life in grey, cruel London gives us the opportunity to say ‘thank god I’m not as bad as them’ while validating all our crazy inner-monologues that no human should ever hear. The last nine years have given us more gut wrenchingly realistic scenarios than Jez has had hot dinners so here are some of the most extreme moments that we can (sort of) relate to:
We’ve all had the odd moment where we wish the ground will swallow us up:
Like that time you tried to impress a girl only to have your body fail you:
Or you didn’t want her to see something so you pushed her away via her face:
Or like the time your best mate found your ‘big dildo’:
And your lady-friend finding out you’re stalking her:
We all like to believe we know it all, but quite often, it leads to some outlandish statements:
Like what feminism is:
Or that it’s not really theft if you think about it:
And, you know, it’s not really a thing, unless it’s a thing, you know?:
Everyone likes to think of themselves as profound but most of the time it’s just drivel or just really sad:
We’ve all said and done things we shouldn’t have for love, haven’t we?
Like, get a bit creepy:
Or a bit too over the top:
Sex can be confusing and complicated so we’ve all asked ourselves these questions… right?
Ball sacks, sexy right?:
Is there more to orgasms than a biological reaction?:
And a woman quirting you with her extinguisher erection is the ultimate love:
Sometimes we just have to take what we can get from a situation:
There are many different types of friendships, each of which need to be handled differently:
Like kissing your best mate to prove your masculinity:
And everyone has one of those friends:
You know, the weird, wacky one that, in all honesty, you don’t want to be friends with them but you can’t shake them off:
There are certain truths you learn in life and we’ve learned some corkers from ‘Peep Show’.
If in need, you can always turn to the Queen:
And you know what they say about racists:
And people in general:
We all self-censor from time to time:
But sometimes, you just have to speak your mind:
Or have a rant and rave:
But most of the time, it’s best to keep things to yourself:
But at the end of the day, there are always things that will make things just right.
Like warm photocopies:
Or sitting in the dark:
Or seeing a familiar face:
