I got through the whole series so quickly, thought it was brilliant.

If anyone has ever lost anyone really close to them I think this capture's it perfectly and I thought he managed to blend the heartbreak with humour superbly.

Probably my favourite Gervais work so far.

I hadn't even heard of this, I'll check it out tonight. As it happens the other day I was watching highlights of his Golden Globes performance. Sticking it to those Hollywood types

Watched the whole thing, it seemed a bit tired and same old same old Gervais.

Preaching about society masquerading as humour. There were a couple of bits that made me laugh so not a total waste.

I was expecting a bit more depth, it all felt a bit easy and obvious in the end.

Overall, he's on the wane. 6/10.

I ended up checking this out over two night. Though I think Gervais' writing is more real to life and fleshed out with Merchant I really enjoyed it. Plenty of touching and funny moments. The humour combined with a really dark downbeat tone made for a unique watch.
