Pete Versus Life

S2-E6 Does Pete Dream of Electric Sheep

S2-E6 Does Pete Dream of Electric Sheep



With the possible exception of Tom Hollander and his Rev cohorts, there isn’t a better comic performer on TV right now than Rafe Spall. He makes magic with fairly ordinary scripts, adding his own tics, double- takes and whimpers (I LOVE Pete’s whimpers) and his very own brand of appealing hopelessness.

So it’s a pity this is the last in the current series, though it goes out on a great final two minutes as Pete implodes when witnessing a marriage proposal. This is after he goes out with a half-witted UFO believer called Tilly. And after he goads then picks a fight with a street performer who pretends to be a robot. I’m going to miss you, Pete. You prize berk.


The journalist begins dating a woman who believes that UFOs are of alien origin, and everything is going well until he discovers Chloe is seeing his enemy Jake. Pete considers a grand gesture to win back his former flame's affections, but also has to contend with a 12-year-old boy being better than him at football. Comedy, starring Rafe Spall and Susannah Fielding. Last in the series.
