* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Who is worse? Sophie or Mark? Let's consider the options. Sophie. A bitch who [[{{TheBabyTrap}} manipulated Mark into fatherhood]], didn't let him name the baby (cause he wasn't at the Christening), played him and Jeff off against each other, tried to get him to take drugs when he didn't want to, lost him a job and told people he jilted her when she ran off OR Marks the [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]] who stalked her and got into a petty rivalry with Jeff over her, got Jez to make nasty phone calls to her over her getting a job that he had no more right than her to anyway (and it turned out she didn't want), used her as a human shield, abandoned her while in labor and decided to marry her to get a [[GoldDigger big house]] only to try to jilt her by hiding in the church. (Ironically Olivia Coleman dislikes her while Creator/DavidMitchell thinks she's ok). [[TakeAThirdOption Or maybe they're both as bad as each other]]. Just saying.
** Jeff as a better person than Mark. He was more of a support to Sophie during her pregnancy than Mark the babies father is, he hasn't, to our knowledge, done anything half as bad as some of the things Marks done (falsely accusing a man of molestation, drugging Gerard etc) and even his tormenting of Mark only got really bad after Mark insulted his mother.

Added DiffLines:

* AwardSnub: Creator/RickyGervais questioned why the first series wasn't nominated at the BAFTAs, calling it the best British sitcom since ''Series/FatherTed''.

* AccidentalNightmareFuel: There's a good meta example in ''Peep Show and Tell'', the "making of" documentary about the series: just ''try'' not to recoil in horror at David Mitchell [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zmqZLORRN8 passionately snogging]] the [[{{Robosexual}} POV camera]].

* HoYay: Mark and Jeremy tend to sabotage the each other's efforts with the opposite sex, and routinely hug and even kiss each other when in high spirits. In short, there's quite a lot of it flying around. Notably, Mark's best match is Dobby [[spoiler:who Jeremy falls in love with because she's a female version of himself,]] which means by proxy he's dating a female Jeremy.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Jeremy's Enya speech at his uncle's funeral, earning a round of applause and even a rare seal of approval from Mark.
** Also the ending to Christmas episode of series 7. Mark finally stands up to his dad before proudly declaring that Christmas was going to be spent his way and wishing everybody a Merry Christmark.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: "Ask for your BlackBerry back like a lady" among others.

* FridayNightDeathSlot: Along with the POV shooting style, one possible reason for the show's low viewing figures despite a dedicated fan base and critical acclaim is that the original airdate for episodes is always Friday evening, on a channel which has a lower viewing figure than the other major UK channels.



* HeyItsThatGuy: [[PhoenixNights Ray Von]] left working in the Phoenix Club and got an office job after [[TookALevelInJerkass taking a level in jerkass]].
** [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Malcolm Tucker]] is a History professor at Darthmouth University. Wonder if he's a [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor]]?



* IAmNotShazam: Jez thinks the shark in ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' is called Jaws the Shark.



* ProtagonistCentredMorality: Views on whether Mark, Sophie, [[TakeAThirdOption or here's a crazy option, both of them]], were to blame for the many ills that came from their relationship, differ wildly amongst fans. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement And that's all to be said about that.]]



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the pilot, Sophie was written as the third main character, with her own inner monologue voice-over and (at least a larger amount of) camera POV. This was dropped for the series proper, although the series 5 DVD did include 'Sophie's Peep Show', a version of the final episode of the series re-edited with Sophie's own voice-over and POV shots.
