Added DiffLines:

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In the "Handyman" episode, Mark's line "The Music/BeastieBoys fought and possibly died for my right to party." was a little less amusing after Adam "MCA" Yauch passed away in 2012. What's worse is that the episode first aired exactly 5 years before MCA's passing.

* HarsherInHindsight: Darryl's comment that Britain "doesn't want the Euro" has added poignancy given that British integration with the European Union has since gone into such a reverse that they are now planning to leave altogether. His comments more generally are rather similar to the views of right-wing nationalist movements that have arisen in Britain since the episode aired, so what at the time was a laughable caricature is now perhaps too close to reality.



** When Mark despairs that he will never find "the one", Jez thinks to himself, "I'm his one."



* OneTruePairing: Mark and [[spoiler:Dobby.]] Their ship name can be Dork.

* MoralEventHorizon: Jeff crowns his campaign of sexual humiliation against Mark by sending him out to buy condoms for him and Sophie.

* MoralEventHorizon: Jeff crowns his campaign of sexual humiliation against Mark by sending him out to buy condoms for him and Sophie. Although Jeff's example is debatable given he has never drugged Gerrard, started weird crush clubs or went round waterboarding lodgers.

** 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 Mark's 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:

** Super Hans: Crack-addled maniac, or ObfuscatingStupidity, to some extent? When Merry is sectioned, it's Super Hans, not Jeremy, who has the presence of mind to seek ownership papers for the pub she's just gifted them. By Series 8, he's stating his desire to settle down - briefly, he's even Mark's boss - and by Series 9 he's found a wife [[spoiler: briefly - but still ...]]. He appears to have a good, if distant, relationship with his twin sons. All of which suggests that even a [[TheStoner complete stoner]] like Super Hans has a greater level of emotional maturity than Jez.

* 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.

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.
