If I could give this a higher score I would
8 March 2019 | by debdshaw60See all my reviews

Ricky Gervais knows how to make you laugh and ugly cry, sometimes together. I think this is my favorite of his series. He speaks right to the dark, sad, and angry part in all of us. He also shows us that everyone is beautiful.

The series is beautifully shot, the cast is fantastic and each character has a slow reveal from who they are in Tony's eyes to who they really are. It's beautifully done.

Only Ricky Gervais can pull off shows like After Life and Derek. I hope he gives us more.
