MOTD, where the match is Pete's life.Great idea!
Fantastic show, mates, so far. It's quick and malicious, and we see at all times two sports-like broadcasters, who are making all the fun they possibly can out of this Pete's guy life. The main character is not at all innocent himself, he is somewhere near the types from Peep Show, managing to pull out some horrible social mishaps. They are all young and so the satire applies to the up to date trends of the 20-30 something, and the omniscient life-broadcasters are making sure to replay the most awkward scenes of every episode, in the way we would imagine Pete would replay them in his mind, if he had a conscience, which is yet doubtful, luckily for the humor we expect to see in the series. Very structured way of putting the fresh idea into a sitcom, so far, and a excellent provider of good laughs, especially if one is used to the sports shows, because this is how the series is intended to be. Thumbs up. And personally I do not agree to the comparison with Woody Allen. Maybe the technique per se, but not the overall atmosphere.
