If you’re a sitcom lover and if you are reading this review, then chances are that you’ve been with the El Dude duo for a long time now. With the starring cast becoming old to play the role of 30 something’s, it is about the right time that we said a sad laters to the pair!
We bid adieu to the sitcom that defined British television with a review of the final episode titled ‘Are we going to be alright’. The finale was a testament to Peep Show’s outstanding humor and depravity, which had the series going strong for more than a decade now.
Are you and I going to be alright with the sitcom’s end?
Yes, you will be alright as the final episode titled ‘Are we going to be alright’ would leave you with a sense of satisfaction as the series comes to a final close. After keeping the audience hooked on the to their television screens for 12 years, makers of the Peep Show have proved yet again why this is probably one of the greatest Brit sitcoms ever to have premiered on the telly screens.
The episode’s premise is fitting as it’s the forever teen, Jeremy’s 40th birthday. The oblivious birthday boy is washing down a healthy sprout sandwich with a pint of piss, while Mark is determined to make Jeremy turn 40. Jeremy’s wild idea to win Mark the affection of his crush, April, plays alongside the madness of this episode. Spurred by Jeremy’s advice on romance, Mark finds himself accompanying Super Hans to stalk his love interest.
It all ends well with humor and misery
Mark is busy chasing April and confessing his love to her, while unknown to him, Jeremy has kidnapped April’s husband Angus with the justification that ‘love has a dark side and ‘someone will always get kidnapped.’ All this folly comes to a climax as Mark gets to shag his love interest in a toilet and even manages to replace Angus for a cruise along the Greek Islands with April. But as is the custom with the Peep Show, everyone is destined to be miserable, and that is how we say goodbye to Jeremy and Mark.
As he is unable to rave for weeks, Jeremy finds himself being dumped by the boyfriend. Super Hans also faces the same destiny as his wife leaves him in the lurch. After all his crazy plans, efforts and toilet shagging, poor Mark yet again loses April to the husband. He is exasperated that even kidnapping Angus doesn’t prove helpful in winning the love of his squeeze.
As the El Dude brothers contemplate the various ways to kill each other, we leave the comic pair just as we were introduced to them in 2003 when the legendary show premiered- lazing in front of the television in a shabby house in Croydon. This scene invariably brings us to the end of one of the best sitcoms ever!
