Though I disagree with his supposed denial. When once does he?

This show is a national treasure but isn't for everyone. It is also infinitely quotable 'I didn't go to university to get a degree, Mark!'

I guess denial was a bad choice of words, more like unexplored.

I'm so eager to find out if we're getting a Pej reference in this series.

In fact, that's how I want the series to end. Doorbell goes, someone comes in, Jez just says "Hi, Pej", and then cut to black.

Little things like this are great. I had forgotten all about Pedge.

I have a friend who is basically Jez and he once said to me "we're only missing a Super Hans and that show would just be our lives."

It was deeply troubling.

"We're the Peep Show group and you're the Mark" is really one of the worst things you can say to someone. Worse than "we're the Always Sunny gang and you're the Dennis".

To be fair it's not a good thing to be anyone on Always Sunny. Dennis is a garbage person, but it could be worse. You could be Frank.

When struck with something I don't want to deal with at work, I often think about just jumping out the window and running away

"I can do anything! I could get a whole KFC bucket! I could join Al-Qaeda!"

I didn't notice until my second run through the series that Mark eventually does run away and get a whole bucket of KFC(on his way to the arcade while Sophie is giving birth.)

Me too. That episode in general is one of my favorites. "Red next to black, jump the gently caress back. Red and yella', cuddly fellow"

Hitler promised not to invade Czechoslovakia, Jez, welcome to the real world.

(Mark's habit of turning everything into a WW2 metaphor is weirdly endearing.)

I always (mis?)remember that line mark says in the first episode whenever I make myself stop procrastinating. "Time to snap on the nosebag and eat some serious work."

The first episode I saw was the one where they go into the country to meet Sophie's parents, after that I was hooked.

I've rewatched this show so so so many times. I like picking up little things, like Jez's allegiance to the Citizen's Advice Bureau. Like in s04e02 the Conference episode he threatens to send them on Alan.

The show takes 3 years to tell about 2 months worth of time, so it's probably still 2003 in the show (with up to date tech and references, anachronisms be damned)

I gotta say that my favorite episode is when Mark befriends the neo-Nazi. It even has Super Hans smoking crack!

Steve2911 posted:

I very much doubt there'll be a definitive "ending", good or bad.

They'll probably end up exactly where they started. Which in itself is sad enough.
One of them said that there will be no happy ending for the two. Burning the last bridges of their friendship is the most fitting end, really.

Nah, they can't end it with them not being friends. It needs to come full circle, back exactly to the point they started. That's the whole point, both of them are just kinda trapped together, and neither can move on.

No fooling, my first scene was turning on the TV when it was already on BBC America and seeing two Englishmen burying a dog that one of them had run over.

I had no idea what I was watching, but I liked it.

I kind of hope they do a series 20 or so years from now, just to see how loving awful Mark and Jez are as elderly men, and see what Mark's kid is like at the same age Mark was at the beginning of the series.

Though I imagine Super Hans will be long dead by then.
