A look at the lives of five New Yorkers dealing with a variety of life's challenges and conflicts. Little do they know that all will be over soon. If you knew that the end of the world is about to come, would you do anything differently?
Gervais can be annoying. Despite this, I am a fan of almost everything he's done.
The Office was outstanding and Extras wasn't bad either.
I kept seeing a few negative reviews about this and for some reason it passed me by.
Recently, I got the chance to see the series. I wasn't expecting much.
Boy, was I wrong! There are so many laugh out loud moments in this series. Soooooo many. At the end of the day, that's what comedy is for...no? Warwick Davis is brilliant in this and shows what a fine actor he really is. He essentially plays a David Brent character in a mockumentary..but really, really well.
Some have criticized the show for being offensive towards smaller people. They just don't get it.
The fact that the main character is little becomes fairly irrelevant. He's just an odious toad! The dumb secretary and the manic depressive accountant are also hilarious characters.
The cringe factor of Gervais' work is always high but this series has a cringe factor through the roof. It can be uncomfortable to watch at times, but you can't take your eyes off it.
I loved it.
A measly 7.7 on here is probably almost as funny as the show.
Watch it and love it.
