Watch the US version of Peep Show. Well, one of them, anyway

Peep Show is coming to an end in the UK this year, with its final, ninth series starting on Channel 4 on Wednesday. Here’s a trailer, in fact.

Nine series, hey? That’s the kind of popularity that normally makes US format-acquisition specialists salivate. No surprise then that the US is currently developing its own version. Slightly more surprising is that this is their third attempt, the first attempts having died horribly. 

Want to know how horribly? Well, here’s one of them, made so long ago it was saved to a VHS in 4:3 and starred The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
