I defy anyone to watch just one episode and then not binge watch the rest
9 March 2019 | by spurs68See all my reviews

Easily his best work since 'The Office', maybe even his best work. Poignant, funny, heart warming and beautifully acted. If you watch one thing this year make it this (clearly you won't just watch one thing but not matter how many it is, make sure After Life is included). It is 6 episodes of the most beautifully crafted television on a subject matter that has no right to be this funny. However, the humour is always tinged with sadness (and vice versa) and the balance between the two is perfect.

Just watch it and prepare to cry, laugh and maybe just put a little bit of perspective into your life.
