Peep Show

Series 8 - 5. Chairman Mark

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

Another comic peek at the inner lives of hopeless men. Failed-musician-turned-life-coach Jez is under the writers’ cosh this week. There’s a lovely moment when he packs up to move out of Mark’s flat and is horrified at how pathetic his worldly goods are: “How can that be all my stuff?” Mark’s sister offers a place to stay, but she turns out to be using him as a sort of childcare slave.

Mark, meanwhile, does a brilliantly over-the-top pitch to be chairperson of his residents’ committee (“A new dawn for Apollo House”), and listen out for a great dig at The Killing.

About this programme
