Peep Show is something I’ve never had the chance to catch on Channel 4 so imagine my suprise to see it
illegally rightfully uploaded on YouTube and GoogleVideo. I’m amazed that some people go through the bother of uploading all these things for the entertainment of others. I’m more amazed by the fact that it is illegal to have these originally free to air videos online. If anything, it’s increasing the shows popularity.
I sorted out all the uploaded videos and listed them here chronologically with episodes details stolen from Wikipedia. Enjoy.
