Building off of the "Mark and Jez are in hell" theory, Jeff and Sophie are actually demons. They continually torment Mark in an effort to [[CruelToBeKind make him see the error of his ways]] so he can better himself as a person. Unfortunately, Mark's arrogance and his lack of a spine prevent him from making any positive changes in his life, [[AndIMustScream dooming him to remain miserable]] (sort of like in the play ''Theatre/NoExit''.

** Dan is the splitting image of Jez, except that he seems at least ten years Jeremy's senior. It's much more likely that ''Series/FreshMeat'' is a distant finale to Peep Show, after Jez has made it to middle age.

Seriously, watch the series from the begining but with this in mind and it's so obvious. They are demons from Hell just trying to fit in here on Earth. Other such demons are [[HowNotToLiveYourLife Don Danbury]], and The Gang.

You know the theme shong says "I'm not sick, but I'm not well, and I'm so hot, cause I'm in Hell"? It's not being overly dramatic. Jez and Mark were horrible people during their life, have died, and are atoning for their sins in Hell, they just can't remember "life" before they died and assume things have always been this way.

This explains why all the other characters are also such massive arseholes (Superhans, Jeff, Sophie), and also why Superhans appears to have a superhuman level of resistance to drugs (taking 4 grams of coke to "calm himself down") - he literally cannot die.

Maybe Gerard only dies because he's finally suffered enough and is moving on to greener pastures?

** Mark and Jez do seem to unconsciously imitate and idolize [[Literature/GoodOmens Aziraphale and Crowley]], respectively - maybe they're shiftless, third-rate replacements after the real deals were ReassignedToAntarctica?

[[WMG: Series 9 will end with Jeremy accidentally killing Mark.]]

To cope with this, he [[Series/FreshMeat changes his name, goes on the run and takes up a new profession, lecturing about geology at Manchester University]]. This explains the reason behind all of Dan's gibbering insecurities - [[FridgeHorror he's a murderer]].
