5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece of modern comedy drama, prepare to laugh and cry, 13 Feb 2014
This review is from: Derek - Series 1 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
After flicking through Netflix I came across this and thought it was worth a punt. I am not a fan of Ricky Gervais and to be honest never had much good to say about him as a comedian. Saying that, nothing really makes me laugh. I watched the first episode of this and continued right to the end. I think I can say that I have never watched such utter brilliance both writing and directing. Ricky has done a tremendous job and portrayed his character perfectly. Derek is loveable, funny and above all pure. As pure as a human could be. This made me laugh out loud and cry out loud. The final episode left me in floods of tears. After watching all of these back to back it has made me think about what I am doing in my life and left me giving thanks for everything that I have. This has got to be one of the most profound, powerful, funny, heart wrenching piece of modern TV comedy drama that I have ever watched in my entire life. The character Derek is played out so well it is really difficult to believe that Ricky is such as funny and annoying person in his own right. I hope that this wins multiple awards as it certainly deserves to. Am I a newfound Ricky Gervais fan, hmmm, don’t know about that but there is one thing for sure, I am a Derek fan and Ricky could not have done a better job if he tried. I would love to know how he researched and created the character. Well don’t Ricky, credit where credit is due. You made me laugh which is very difficult to do, and cry which is even harder. There is to be a second season but it had better be as good and I for one cannot wait to see it.
