I picked up Series 6 of Mitchell and Webb’s Peep Show in the 2nd hand shop the other day. As is usual with sitcoms that go beyond the magic 3rd series it’s wearing a bit thin by Series 6 but still better than most. The great thing about this dvd is that among the ‘extras’ is a feature called If peep show was filmed before a live studio audience . For those who don’t know, Peep Show is one of the sitcoms that, notably, has no ‘laugh track’. Seeing the familiar scenes interrupted by bursts of manic chortling is quite an experience. I don’t know how they did it – presumably by adding laughter from the track of another sitcom that was filmed before a live studio audience – so can’t tell how fair a comparison it is; but I know which I prefer! Does anyone else find the almost staccato bursts of laughter in Dead Ringers one of the few negatives about the show?
