Peep Show

Channel 4 sitcom about two guys. 54 episodes (9 series), 2003 - 2015. Stars Robert Webb, David Mitchell, Olivia Colman, Matt King and others.

Series 1, Episode 4 - Mark Makes A Friend

Mark attends a work conference and in the process makes a new friend, Alan Johnson, which upsets the 'El Dude' partnership.

Further details

This forces Jeremy to consider who could replace Mark as flatmate and best friend. Super-Hands is the potential replacement, but he doesn't match up as well.

Mark grows a moustache, like his new hero, Johnson whilst Jeremy is haunted by flashbacks to 'the one bad thing' that happened when he was wrecked with Super-Hands.
