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.

So what’ has everyone thought of series two?

I thought series one to be one of the best things I’d seen in years but I think this has surpassed it.

Really didn’t know how they could of done a second series but Ricky as usual nailed it.

For those not seen I strongly recommend it.

Same here, but Ricky Gervais is a genius, how he can make something so sad and touching yet so funny and get the balance just right is incredible, loved it

The series 2 outtakes on you tube are hilarious, as you can imagine Ricky Gervais must be a nightmare to work with(in a good way) even if he’s not in a scene, all you can hear is him laughing in the back ground

Probably the best piece of TV I have seen for a while.
The acting is superb. Its a great cast with some wonderful acting. Though Gervais is central his relationship with all the other characters make this a well worth watch. Kerri Godliman, Roisin Conaty and Penelope Wilton deserve a special mention. The relationship with his dad is very touching. It's very thought provoking showing that people can be lonely and unhappy in many different ways Like all good writing this show can make you laugh and cry in equal measures. Please watch it.
