In reply to: theChronicler 's message, "I've seen the series 3X over, and I think Gervais outdid himself. Mind you, this series is not for everyone, but I thought its writing and GREAT ensemble cast were the best. The subject really examines what "life" means individually. Excellent effort; a kind of "Truly, Madly, Deeply" MEETS "Curb You Enthusiasm"! ..." on Thursday, March 21, 09:57:30am

I actually cried at some spots. I watched the final episode last night, and afterwards I went to bed. My wife was still up and I asked her if I could hold her hand for a bit and she thought I was crazy!

Ricky Gervais was amazing! I'm not sure if there will be a season 2, but it is definitely the best thing he has ever done.

It definitely examines the "5-stages of grief", and delves into "what would happen if...?" And it seems nearly each character was strategically placed, and their 'slant' on life -from his loving brother-in-law, his simple-minded photographer collegue, and even his office "antagonist" 'Kath', to the 'innocent observer' newbie 'Sandy' with fresh eyes. -All had their place in what life represents. (NT)And punctuated with cemetery's "chi" voice of experienced reason, 'Anne', brilliantly played by veteran actress Dame Penelope Wilton!Thursday, March 21, 05:51:51pm
