Nice to see this receiving the good reviews it deserves. Think you either love or hate Gervais and a lot of people dismiss his work instantly.

It was really good I thought. Really sad subject matter/s but they were dealt with respectfully and also gave food for thought. Some truly sad moments mixed with some really funny ones as well. I thought the supporting cast was very good as well.

For a program that dealt with some hard issues, I thought it was very easy viewing strangely enough. I expect it'll be a stand-alone series and we won't get a second. Gervais is actually a decent actor that he doesn't always get the praise he deserves. A really good performance from him.

Really enjoying it. Only watched a couple of episodes so far. Some genuine laugh out moments, some moments where I swear someone started chopping onions nearby.

Think he has started writing (or is planning) a second season.

I don't particularly like Ricky Gervais but this is really excellent. So many well written characters
