Peep Show

Series 8 - 3. The Love Bunker

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

When Peep Show is on this kind of form it’s like a perfect toy you want to play with forever. Tonight, writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong work in so many great lines – mainly for the twisted inner thoughts of Mark and Jez – that you may need to pause the TV to allow for laughing time.

Mark’s worries about someone stealing girlfriend Dobby have switched from Gerard (RIP) to her ex, Simon. The latter organises a paintballing day for his birthday, and keeps Dobby suspiciously close. (“Holding hands?!” Mark notes, furiously. “That’s not military! I’m pretty
sure Rommel never held hands!”)

Then Mark gets stranded in a bunker with drug-addled team-mate Superhans and a dog-eared biography of Napoleon. The latter proves more help.

About this programme

3/6. Simon invites Dobby, Mark, Jeremy and Super Hans to join him and his friends for a paintballing weekend. Mark thinks that Simon is using the weekend as a cover to get back with Dobby, while Jeremy is convinced he can be a life coach to one of the party. Comedy, starring Robert Webb and David Mitchell.
