Delightfully depressing 'documentary' of an alternative Warwick Davis.
This is very much like Extras and The Office, except Warwick plays the Ricky Gervais part.
He sends himself up as a not-altogether pleasant man who really has the worst luck possible. He does redeem himself a bit at the end, but generally you're not always certain what's going to happen.
Great cameos from well known Hollywood actors as you'd expect. The scene with Liam Neeson is one of the funniest things I've seen on TV in a long time.

It's just a shame the series was too short.

Life's Too Short truly is the moment when the emperor has no clothes. Made when Ricky Gervais could seemingly do no wrong, the show is so badly judged and, at times, just plain desperate, that you start to wonder whether The Office and Extras really were as good as you remember.

They were (I re-watched them to make sure), but that's because Gervais and Merchant's shtick was still fresh at that point. Here, their comedy style just seems stale and flat; creaking under the same awkward looks, politically incorrect comments and the spoof documentary format.

Warwick Davis is actually a very likeable performer, and the idea of basing a show around a little person with a severe case of small man syndrome is an interesting one that could have worked well if they hadn't decided to make him a carbon copy of David Brent.

Every stammering monologue, every smug look to the camera, every desperate act to gain a little acceptance from those around him - it's all Brent by numbers. And that's not necessarily down to any fault of Davis, but rather the fact that Gervais and Merchant are only capable of producing one type of comedy, and the vox pop interview segments that are a by-product of the documentary style only add to the sense of deja vu.

There is the odd moment of inspiration - most notably Liam Neeson's unsuccessful foray into comedy - but, like combing for treasure in a rubbish tip, you have to wade through a lot of garbage to find them.

Worst of all are the moments that take place in the office of Gervais and Merchant (with the sole exception of the Neeson scene). These are basically a way for the writer/directors to shoehorn themselves into the action and, presumably, give the Americans watching on HBO more of a reason to tune in.

Absolutely brilliant. Never laughed so much for a long time. It should have been given a second series. This politically correct time we live in is ruining comedy. If there was any justice the BBC should go cap in hand to Ricky Gervais and beg him to do another. Its easily on par wwith Fawlty Towers

Superb writing and great fun to watch....
I love it when actors are happy to send themselves up, playing a "faux" them. Like Matt LeBlanc in Episodes...
Only tried this as I got Amazon Prime - but a great find.
