MILD SPOILERS.
Just finished watching this and think this is Gervais' best work after the Office. Obviously it doesn't climb as high as that pinnacle but it's still very good if you like dark humour ("I just threatened a six year old with a hammer"). Some of it does seem to be a bit of a platform for his views on modern life but it is still well put together, funny, moving, a bit silly and quite dark.

Whilst there is not an unhappy ending, it is by no means as scmaltzy as some people are making out so it's definitely worth the effort if you like Gervais.

this was beautiful to watch, however I just wish it had been a few episodes longer as I felt the lead character's turnaround was quite quick. Would have loved to see it develop more.

Magnificent cast, nice laughs and tears. Everything that is now standard in a Ricky Gervais production

even if Gervais has almost only two canine vampirish front teeth in his not so much comedic figure, this work is magnificent. the bloke is not very simpatic. he even doesn��?�?t have kids. but those aren��?�?t real issues. the only thing that really matters is the result. in this particular case, it is brilliant. simple, essential, both comedic and realistic, profundity and comedy fused together. love it. hope will materialise other seasons. but seriously doubt.

This show has heart. Somehow makes me laugh and cry and laugh again. Gervais has a touching way of understanding the human condition. Lives up to expectations. Which is a high bar indeed.

As someone who has lost a spouse this really spoke to me.
