Peep Show season 5 episodes list:
It's not so long since Mark's new bride Sophie stumbled from the car, looking in appalled fascination at her husband of ten minutes and sobbed, "He's horrible!" As we return for the fifth series of this engagingly filthy comedy, Mark (David Mitchell) is getting drunk and maudlin on wedding champagne as his flatmate Jeremy (Robert Webb) urges him to go out on a double-date: "Beggars can't be choosers, she's an actual woman." Mark - remember, this is a man who once based his romantic strategy on the Siege of Stalingrad - arms himself with a copy of the Friends of the British Museum magazine and goes forth again to search for love.
Mark and Sophie return to work, while Jeremy renews his acquaintance with the depraved Super Hans, in yet another filthy, funny episode.
Jeremy finally runs out of money and finds himself on a downward spiral of hunger, homelessness and criminality. Meanwhile Mark needs to find a girlfriend before his birthday party.
Jeremy's tortured relationship with his very sweet mother comes under the spotlight. It emerges that Jez has been living off handouts from his mum for years and now he's in line for half of her £40,000 bequest from an aunt. Jeremy's need to self destruct kicks in immediately, as does Mark's inability to stop his excruciating attempts to ingratiate himself with any mature grown-up. He adores Jeremy's mum and hero-worships her Scots Guardsman boyfriend.
Jeremy and Super Hans get a band manager and play a Christian rock festival. Mark comes along as their roadie, and learns how to have sex properly for the first time in his life.
Mark gets into online gaming and live role play with Dobby and wonders whether she may be The One. Meanwhile, Mark and Sophie finally sort out their annulment. Jeremy joins a cult.
