Each week, we will be taking an in depth look at some of the best sitcoms and comedy shows from both the UK and the USA.

This week we will be looking at a show that changed the way we viewed the comedy by manipulating the way the cameras told the story – Peep Show 

Opening Titles / Theme Tune

The song Flagople Sitta by Harvey Danger was introduced to the opening titles from season 2.

In the first season this was the song that was used for the opening titles

Each season the clips of the cast change in the opening sequence to correlate with what is happening in that season and also who the leads are.
