    Just watched the first season of Ricky Gervais' show "After Life".

    Its about a man wallowing in depression after his wife's death due to cancer. He's a miserable bleep to everyone cause he is so myopic, and inward focused. It took me a few episodes not to completely hate the guy (part of that may be cause I dont like Gervais all that much). But over the arc of the season you see his character develop, and you see how much pain he's in.

    only 6 episodes, a half hour each so not a huge time commitment.

    really left me thinking.

    I enjoyed it and I really like Gervais’ humor in general. I hope they do additional seasons.

    If you like Gervais, then I believe you would think After Life is funny, yes. I laughed out loud many times.

    My wife just watched this, and loved it. I'm thinking about watching it, but...
    I've never really cared for his humor, or style, either. Was this show good enough to overcome your dislike?

    It was a pretty depressing comedy.

    I liked it, to consider it depressing misses the whole point.

    SimolSi style to Derek.

    Do me a favor and DO NOT ass-u-me I missed the point. Just because you liked it and I did not does not mean I didn't get it.
