best show
20 August 2014 | by darshangoodSee all my reviews

the concept of the show looked boring to me at first but i only saw one episode and thought it was brilliant , the show is narrated by commentators and has stats to show petes progress about anything he is doing

it was just well made , the shows popularity was not as good as it could have been because the ratings were low due to the late night time it was aired , this is proof that hit shows are not always successful when flop shows take their place like the inbetweeners , peter vs life is a classic show that was very good but not marketed by channel 4 for anyone who has not seen this show , it is worth a watch and you will know how funny the show is , each episode has a different theme and the characters are characterised well

pete has a selfish personality and only likes his friend , he also has a rival who is the opposite of pete , pete and his dad are always challenging each other

petes life is of different characters but pete is always trying to get his way all the time but the tricky situations pete gets himself in keep coming back to him when he can usually do things in a simple way but he takes a silly route to get in trouble with everyone
