Kindness is Magic,
This review is from: Derek - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Anyone who thinks this programme is not worth watching because it mocks the old or the disabled needs to just sit and watch. You will very quickly realise that this is far from mocking. Derek is a beautiful piece of work from a man whom is unfairly not always portrayed in a positive light (Ricky Gervais). Derek will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you appreciate life and the others around you and most importantly it will teach you that kindness is magic and kindness trumps everything.
The 'making of' feature is particularly interesting, it allows an insight into how Gervais created the character and why. This insight shows how truely brilliant and knowledgeable of his craft Gervais is.
One of the best shows of recent time, I have watched each episode several times and if anything, it gets more touching! BUY IT NOW!!
