Can we have a Ricky Gervais thread elsewhere?

I can't fking stand him or anything he's in.
I don’t like him as a rule but Afterlife is fantastic TV. REALLY funny in places and incredibly heartfelt in others.
I don't like him either, disliked The Office and most of his other stuff, but being a miserable sod myself the premise of this appealed so thought I would give it a go, watched all 6 in one sitting, blubbing by the end
Totally agree, not a fan at all but thought this was brilliant. Really funny one minute then welling up the next.
It does lay it on a bit thick in places but it was good enough to be forgiven.

Whatever your feelings are about the McCanns, this documentary should not have been made without the consent of the family.
Why?

"IF" they did it, I expect they wouldn't give consent.

Not sure if this has already been mentioned but “Beyond the Curve” is a great documentary about the flat earth society. Definitely worth a watch. I must stress I’m not a flat eather.

I see Three Girls is now on Netflix. Wouldn't say it's an easy watch given the subject matter, but it certainly is a good drama.

Unless you wanted a laugh, I see no point in watching a bunch of morons smile

A laugh is one way of putting it.

I read somewhere that the whole thing was started by some folks messing around and giving funny names to things.

I kept watching it for all of them to have a big group photo at the end, pissing themselves laughing and telling us they are just kidding.

Not watched yet, but I heard on the radio this is just a mash up of all his twitter spats he has had with people!

Same here, discovered this last night and rinsed it in one sitting... If you have never seen Derek then give that a go - that was equally enjoyable. Never got on with 'Extras' but admit I enjoyed the Office back in the day...

Watching this now. Dogs don’t lie wink

Turn up Charlie - don’t bother. I’m going to have to rewatch five seasons of Luther if I’ve even a vague hope of rekindling my bromance with Idris Elba. You could have been Bond and you chose that? Piper Perabo remains as smoking hot as ever mind.

Black Earth Rising.

Only up to ep. 4 but absolutely brilliant Greene/ Le Carre esque political thriller.

Verging on the thought provoking at times.

I binge watched the Formula One series last night, still got three episodes to go.

The first took a while to get going, but the subsequent episodes were really good and informative.

I had the good fortune to work as a secondment to Team Lotus back in 1992, how things have changed....

I stumbled across that on Friday and ended up watching the lot. Felt like it had moments of Kevin & Perry. Pretty sure the Ibiza apartment is the same property.

Idris wants to get into music though. He actually has a song out... https://youtu.be/huaE85-V8u4
