      I know - the exact same fucking cast that Ricky always fucking hires for everything that he fucking writes.

      Will Ford what get out more? To watch mindless TV so he'd know who was in the cast more? Ability to identify celebrates does not equate to an interesting life. Think you need to take your own advice, get out more, and by that I don't mean watching shite TV

    I know you'll never read this, but telling those celebrities on the golden globes last night they have no room to lecture the public was f'ckn excellent!! MUCH RESPECT!!

    Ricky, I know you probably don't read youtube comments but I couldn't find any other way to contact you. I just want you to know I thought this show was absolutely brilliant. I've actually been struggling with suicidal contemplation for about 6 months now, and this show really helped me see the light. And go on living ♥️ it was hilarious, well thought-out, touching, and greatly acted and written. I'd recommend this show to anyone and I really appreciate how it's changed my life. Cheers mate

    This was AWESOME! My husband and I binge-watched all six episodes! It was a bit darker than most of his work, but still a classic Gervais product! Good moral ending!

    YES!!! Brilliant idea for a show, love seeing all the other talented actors and actresses from the office, extras and Derek also in this.

      @Stanley13 Yea Mickey is pretty shite isnt he. But Derek isnt meant to be a laugh out loud comedy, its meant to be a light hearted look at a care home. My Grandad was in a care home bless his heart in his last years, and Derek brought back many happy, and sad, memories of my Grandad. Derek is a masterpiece in places.

    I've just finished watching the whole series on Netflix.
    Reminds me of the movie 50/50 with Joseph Gordon-Levitt with the whole cancer theme and the mix of deep despair and levity. Much like the happy and sad faces of the masquerade masks that represent life's tendency to be viewed both through the lens of comedy and one of tragedy.
    I really enjoyed the series. It had me in tears at times, imagining myself in the main character's situation.
    I thought the writing was very good.
    The emotional deliveries felt genuine. Actors were superb.
    The lessons being taught and the inspiring speeches from the characters were all very relatable and well executed
    I think Ricky Gervais and his cast and crew members deserve a lot of praise for this particular body of work.
    Thanks for putting this together so people like me can be entertained.
    Worth a rewatch in the future.

    I binge watched this series yesterday.
    By the end of the last show, I wanted to call Ricky Gervais on the phone and tell him thanks. I hope he writes more.

      I think it’s better than his other shows.

      Catherine Clancy 2 years ago

      @Blisterbill I also binge watched Season 2 as well. I loved it. Especially the older widow on the bench where Tony and her would meet. It certainly didn't seem overly rehearsed because he really did seem surprised when she said what she said lol.

    • Blisterbill

      I saw a trailer for the second season yesterday.

      Catherine Clancy 2 years ago +1

      I totally agree Blisterball. And the sad scenes were acted so well, he made me believe that he really was going through this in his life. Waiting for the next season, if there is going to be one.

    I have always been impressed and inspired by you as a person. I also felt your work has always been purposeful and sincere if not often times brilliant. After watching series 2 of Afterlife, I can only feel you are one of the best actors I have ever seen on screen. I felt every tear. So much subtlety in the performance that it seems like a documentary. Incredible.

    Mr. Gervais... Thank you for After Life... this show has been an emotional roller coaster for me. Within the last 4 years I have lost my Mom, Grandma, and Grandpa... the 3 people that raised me and meant the most to me... and seeing this show has just really brought a lot of memories and emotions to the surface for me. I just wanted to say that After Life is absolutely brilliant... it's been healing for me in a way. Really all I can say is thank you for making it. I hope it's around for awhile. Cheers to you, Sir.

  • Stephanie Lawrence

    Ricky, your show made me laugh and cry all at once. It’s made me appreciate everyone I love even more and like Jesus, showing kindness and love is the only way. Here’s to you. What a heart warming show you have produced which covers it all - spot on. Love it 👌❤️

    I just want to say thank you for giving me something to relate to in every way possible.. the series is something of brilliance I'm not sure whether you'll read this or not I'm not sure how it works but thank you I balled my eyes out from start to finish.. my wife sadly passed away last year from breast cancer.. after a long battle unfortunately it won but not before us getting married in the hospital and the memories we shared and our children.. honestly I really wanted to say it hit home hard it hard every day but I know I have to keep going for the little ones... I've watched it over and over I miss my wife every day.. thank you for a great show...

  • William Michael Forbes

    Ricky this is by far one of the best shows I have seen in my 60 years of life on this planet. Each episode warms my heart and open my mind more intimately to the simple things in life. I almost wish I was an atheist perhaps I be just a little bit like you :-).... I don't think I could make anybody laugh as hard

    I've just finished watching "After Life". Ricky, you're absolutely great. I'm a widower, my wife passed away 4 year ago. Breast cancer. Freakin' coincidence. Only difference: besides the dog I got 3 kids. I felt all the series was a bit about me. It made me laughing my ass off - and crying THE SAME TIME. Purifying experience. :-)

It’s brilliantly and poignantly written, and the acting was superb, from all the cast.

    Merci pour Derek qui m'a bouleversé alors que je travaille dans ce milieu.
    Merci pour être l'intelligence dont nous manquons, le rire que nous perdons, les convictions qui nous échappent et la sincérité que nous ne trouvons plus.
    Vous êtes un de mes plus grands sourires et réconforts dans ce monde de plus en plus idiot.
    Vivez longtemps, prenez soin de vous, de nous.
