New Series by Rick Gervais

 

 

I loved the pilot episode, it has alot of potential and could well be a gem of a series.

 

the criticism it has drew if very much unfair IMO nothing to suggest Gervais is " taking the piss " out of people with disabilities. Just more gervais bashing really

i believe the first episode of the series after the pilot aired in England recently, any reviews ?

I love Gervais. My friends think I worship him. I won't watch it until all episodes are available. Things people have been saying on twitter are very positive. From what I can gather it is more so a drama and a comedy. I think a lot of noobs are critical that it isn't funny. That's like having a whinge about Law & Order not being funny.

Like all rickys stuff it depends on your sense of humour.

Gervais is a d**khead, an over-grown schoolboy who disappeared up his own arse after he got lucky with The Office (thanks mainly to his working with a bunch of talented people). Whenever I see him on TV and hear that obnoxious laugh I want to reach in and squash his stupid head.

 

I haven't watched any of Derek yet but It's probably safe to say it won't be my cup of tea.

I liked the office in spite of Gervais & I love Idiot Abroad, but that's for Karl.

I did enjoy Derek & for those that haven't seen it, perhaps you should judge the show & not the man. It's not a comedy more a drama/comedy if it had anyone else as the lead actor people would be going mad for it.

i think this thread proves alot about gervais, you either love him or hate !

 

Shed pensioner i live in australia so havent seen any episodes yet of derek apart from the Pilot, is the 1st episode after along the same lines ?

 

Very much along those lines, I think the point being, see the person & not the disability.
