Peep Show is Jesse Armstrong’s funny first series: life through the eyes of two flatmates who, in their thirties, can’t seem to get it together. At Serielizados Fest Online you can discover its entire first season on Filmin.

Before giving us his look at the world of super-rich people and their family problems, Jesse Armstrong debuted as co-creator with Sam Bain and Andrew O’Connor of this very particular comedy called Peep Show.

A series that was on the verge of being cancelled on several occasions, but DVD sales sparked a brutal interest and revived it, turning it into the cult classic it is today.

Because Peep Show is no ordinary comedy. The series tells the story of two geeky and inept friends and flatmates: Mark and Jez. So far, so normal. But the series goes beyond that. Told through first-person shots and interior monologues that show us their thoughts, Peep Show tackles subjects ranging from the most banal and absurd to terrible existential fear. A very curious delicatessen, ideal for discovering the early Jesse Armstrong and laughing at the crazy antics of its protagonists, including a then-unknown Olivia Colman.
