    Never imagined Ricky Gervais to be this kind of writer/director. After Life and Derek have some truly amazing storylines and emotion. The man's funny and he doesn't give a shit what people think. But these shows have some really thought provoking dialogue and scenes that touch your heart. Great, great actors (Gervais, Conaty, Godliman, Wilkinson, Pilkington and of course the amazing Penelope Wilton etc, etc) and you can relate and even if you can't, anyone with an ounce of humanity has to appreciate the balance between comedy and drama he's gifted us with here with these 2 shows. Bust a gut one minute-ball your friggin' eyes out the next. Brilliant TV. Can't wait for After Life season 3 to hit Netflix.

    I found it so hard to watch Derek after Karl left. He was my favorite character by far because he was so unapologetically himself. Especially the scene where he calls the residents daughter Mr T and a magpie as I was a carer in a nursing home at the time.

    You CANNOT tell me he didn't rip off Karl, taking the inspiration (simple man, simple thoughts) along with the simple expressions. They're obvs parodied up by Rick. But one cannot *dare* deny that Karl was the inthesis Obvs exaggerated of course, but the idea remains...

    I wonder if Ricky would be able to pull this off in today's world. He isn't autistic therefore the PC army would cry foul over this. Seems you can't make a flick about fags these days unless you are actually a fag. Insane.

    I relate so much to Carl, that i wish i had a friend like Ricky. Always trying to involve you, even though youd never ask, he busts his balls a LOT but its obvious he cares about the fellow, and thats fucking rad. Id hand over money to get rick Karl and Steve back together for just a season, the world needs it lol.

    Derek is the best program you ever made. It was funny to the extent I had tears. It was sad which made me cry too. Such a mixture of feelings all thru the series but all were spot on. The people at the top making cuts. The lack of care from old peoples family ( the Mr T scene where the fat woman comes for her Mothers belongings and is so heartless). Great acting espeially on Dereks part - and lots of truths about what happens. This really is the best (to me) you have ever done. BRILLIANT. Never tire of watching this.

    The first season of Derek was probably the only good season in the show because of Karl's character playing off of Ricky's. Both of them in this show managed to capture a sort of father/son relationship in terms who they played, Karl playing a hard working balding chimp who would get the job done and Ricky playing some autistic guy who's wife presumably died in a car accident and his only option is just a care home. And I do feel that was sadly lost in the second season when Karl left the show. I mean if Steve was on this show then I think he would've played the role of an uncle who isn't an uncle.

    OMG! There will be a season 2- AWESOME! I'm all a flutter! I will get out the kleenex for the laughing and the crying as well! Dereck is all LOVE. Much like down syndrome people, and even more so Asperger's autistics, they are just so blunt and loving, there is no evil in them. It teaches us so much, as a nurse I learned so much from these people. I wish I could say I was like the nurse in "Derek"" but I wasn't as sweet. No nurse Ratchett though. I was pretty nice all in all. It's hard to be unhappy around the patients except when they are dying or in pain, or "code browning", etc. I LOVE you, Ricky!!! You give so much to our world.

    @rickygervais (if you ever see this) the episode with Ivor hit me the hardest, and watching Derek go through the pain of having to witness an animal he loved being euthanized somehow gave me strength that I know I will one day need. You’ll never know how much this impacted me. Thank you, so very much, for pursuing your passion projects to the fullest. Thank you for this show.

I feel so behind on this front but then again I don’t think I would have appreciated these shows when I was younger. You’re pretty cool my dude, always nice to know there’s like minded people somewhere in the world!! 😺

    @Jaime Reynolds yes!!! That’s what I started on, then I became obsessed with Ricky and found Derek. I will definitely watch both again after some time has passed but now I’m watching Extras. something about Ricky’s delivery and down to earth attitude gets me, like he’s a regular guy feeling all the things we feel. I don’t ever feel like his shows are better than reality like Tv makes us think, instead it all seems so realistic. And there’s really no pandering to the audience. Never really does anything for cheap thrills or an attention grab, at least of what I’ve watched so far. Derek though is by far my favorite show. Afterlife is right up there with it.

    what I love about Ricky Gervais' writing is that he can show the whole of humanity. You can laugh and cry and feel all within a half an hour. Laugh SO hard...cry and have that lump in your's a rare talent. Kudos to the actors also who bring his ideas to life.

    What's interesting about this is Karl was likely already "done" with Ricky mentally at this point. During the filming of s1 Ricky farted on his head and he's mentioned how he wasn't happy about it... He came back for the 1st episode of S2 just to write out his character and after that he hasn't done anything with Ricky since

    Still can't watch anymore of Derek, after four episodes of the first season it just broke my heart. I cannot watch it without bursting into uncontrollable tears. The innocence and kindness and sincerity just breaks me. Even watching this making of I was in tears twice. It's a credit to the acting directing and writing and I feel bad for not watching it. Maybe one day I'll be emotionally capable of watching it all.
