I must concur. Although there is the argument that says Brit comedy is only worth one series. like Spaced - series 1 = genius. Series 2 = good. Same with Black Books. We don't deal with acceptance very well. Peep Show is the only exception IMO.

Also nothing as funny as The Venture Bros, which gives me a semi every time (although that may be more to do with Brock Samson)

Yeah, Nathan Barley deserved more than one season, IMO!

...7 years later - and I have only just discovered Peepshow.

It is totally awesome.

..and thanks to the wonders of the internet - here is the complete first episode:

Has anyone mentioned Flight of the Conchords? I don't know if it's top five material, but it's pretty funny. And musical too!

No one has mentioned The IT Crowd either. Some extremely funny episodes.
