Posted in the wrong thread:

I just watched episodes 2-4 back to back. The other actors are good. I like the rape to death line and I smirked at the notion of Corden being essentially a chauffeur. Apart from that it’s wall to wall bizarre shit.

Gervais retweeted this:

Quote
Is #rickygervais hiring a sex worker to do cleaning in #AfterLife the greatest satire on patriarchy and marriage or am I reading too much into it?

“Yes, that is absolutely what I had in mind.  Yes.”

Also, I’m not sure how that could be seen as even vaguely satirical anyway.  It’s also basically the same as that Curb plot where he hires the prostitute to come to the baseball game with him.

Haha, Gervais has targeted his new audience with pin point accuracy.

These are the kind of people who would have tweeted "The #office is soooo boring, nothing happens and it's sooooo cringe" if Twitter existed around 2001.

Gervais knows this too unless he's totally lost his mind.

It's weird to think about but it's true. A lot of the millions who watched After Life will be young and clueless enough that they either won't have seen The Office or saw a bit of it, didn't get it and prefer the American version.

Either way, Gervais has found a new audience here. They'll watch it and he can keep on selling his low-effort shit to Netflix for tens of millions of dollars.

I haven't watched anything beyond episode 1 of this, but I did find that father/son scene quite touching until the "gay" line, which read to me like 'I've reached the end of my ability to write anything remotely poignant - time to fall back on the good old shite'.
