Can it be? The voices of a slightly aggravated generation are leaving our television screens.

Yes, we must say farewell to Mark and Jeremy as the final ever episode of Peep Show airs, marking the close to nine series and 53 episodes. Though it may never have been a heavy-hitter in the ratings, Peep Show has become a cult infatuation due its ability to so sublimely sum up the existential crisis that is living in the 21st-century.

Selfish, lazy, cruel, furious, spiteful, desperately lonely and desperately lost. We simultaneously fell in love and grew increasingly repulsed by the ongoing social incompetencies of these two, because we were both ashamed and elated to find those embarrassing parts of ourselves projected onto television screens. And they were pretty funny too, as these 12 most glorious moments from the series proves.
