    I don't watch much TV so I totally missed the Peep Show hype. Is it worth watching all the seaons back to back now that it's Easter?

    Peep Show is amazing.

    Yes, it is well worth watching all the seasons back to back. It's just too good.

    One of the best comedies in my opinion
    It is a tiny bit marmite because of the funky camera style, but I think most people like it or get over it

    Peep Show is easily one of the best things that ever happened to Croydon, and the world in general.

    As "13 1 20 8 42" said, the camera style is rather marmite-like - well worth checking out nonetheless.

    Peep Show is one of the best British sitcoms of the last twenty years, watching it would be a fantastic use of time!

    I feel the same about people who haven't seen Breaking Bad.

    Does it get good right off the bat or do I need to give it some time?

    Watch it.

    If you don't, I'll go back 5 years and neg you so you lose all of your gems

    I hope this threat is sufficient motivation :lol:

    It really is excellent though, and it will be funny right away and then incredible when you invest in the characters.

    The first series is a bit clumsier with camera work and stuff like that and the dialogue and jokes are not as finessed as later series but it picks up steam quickly. It's one of those shows where you'll end up feeling recurrent urges to chain people to chairs and force them to watch your long list of favourite moments

    I thought M & W was crap to be honest. Remember that one with the superhero and the BMX guy? Really desperate stuff
