The final episode of Derek - a Christmas Special - comes to Channel 4 at 10pm on Monday 22 December
Proof critics are idiots. This show was just so good to watch. Whether it relied on stereotypes or not, it still conveyed the message it needed to. Sometimes we think too hard and forget to enjoy things without trivializing them by becoming self righteous. "Oh this is so insensitive"....Really? Is it?
La serie de tv mas hermosa que vi en mi vida
God dammit, just this was enough to make me cry!
really disappointed that it turns out the netflix special episode was this. Thought it was gonna be a new one.
Anyone tried ringing that Number 0:01? lol
It came out on my bday!
i was expecting a 6 man funeral for the brilliant old people, with derek crying and telling us why we should never forget brilliant old people.
I love how spoiler free it is! :))
Most underrated series of all time. Fucking brilliant. Really gets to my manly emotions.
Hopefully there'll be less smut and more heart with this episode. I love you, Ricky, but Series 2 really was a mixed bag. The last three episodes were much better than the first three. Still, I'll be tuning in of course.
wow that looks good......fuck off Pricky
I completely forgot about the 2 seasons and a special tradition until now. That's a nice surprise.
Will be missed
Please God make it a Usual Suspects parody. Either Derek or Dougie turns out to be a criminal mastermind.
When will it be on Netflix?
Derek > The Godfather
Without Karl the show turned up to be shit anyway, don't think I'll watch this
So it looks like the retirement home closes, perhaps due to lack of funding
Derek burns down the retirement home
I'm welling up.
God damn it Gervais. If I'm not pissing myself at your shows then I'm crying! How much more of our bodily fluids do you want from us! A thriller is next then yeah, to get our sweat? ;)
you mean porn? if he's after fluids at least :D ricky is the greatest comedian of today.
@Zeke Iddon Haha, something like that could get sticky :D
Dear god, I hope porn isn't on his radar.
Derek was the best thing Ricky's done, an I laughed hard at the office. Just love the PATHOS in Derek :-) thanx Ricky more plz. Kin genius.
Hello Ladies > Derek
It was good to a point, but a little too sentimental for my liking.
+Adam G (Aduder) The entire SHOW is sentimental!!
The problem with Derek is that the old people and their carers who are treated like angels. Surely amongst all those elderly men there's one guy who raped a German woman in the war. Let's have an episode about that guy. Let's not give him a dignified death scene with a melancholic piano soundtrack. Derek loves animals, but is he a vegan? He fucking better be. If he's running around trying to save butterflies, how would he feel if he knew that dairy cows produce all that milk because their calves are taken away from them the day they're born. Put Einaudi over a video of a calf being taken from its mother, and see if Derek still wants that cup of tea. I'll watch that episode. And why are all the old people so wise and dignified? Surely out of all those old guys there's one who raped a German farm girl during the war. If not a rape, at least a couple of war crimes. And where are all the racists? And homophobes. Doesn't Ricky know the generation they grew up in? At least one of those old guys had to have been in a gang that beat up gays. They can't all be sweet old farts.
Good point. The old people in Derek are just cardboard figures, only there as a backdrop and to react to Kev's shitting himself.
@kentrel2 You're the one complaining it should be funnier... Thus, it is YOUR problem. For all you know, these old folks never fought in any wars. You need to get over this recurring rape scenario you have running through your head. You understand that the show's been made to make the old folks seem dignified and wise, right? The entire thing would be taken out of context if the editors threw in footage of them being racist or homophobic. If someone asked you to cut together a film about a care home and make it dignifying, you'd leave out the bad stuff! Also Derek's character CLEARLY has mental health issues, and you're having a fucking go at him for loving animals but not being a vegan. What the fuck is wrong with you, dude? pah!
@kentrel2 cba with u probably a troll, if not u need help
@ticklemestudios Are you kidding!? That episode sounds awesome!! Toby going postal would have been a great finale. Better than that vomit inducing one they had.
@Sam E Don't be silly, I didn't write the show. If I did, it would be funnier.
Here's a teaser for my next comment..you can only see the comment if you are in a different country.
Really bummed that its gonna be over after this. One of the only shows that can truly change your outlook on life. I will miss it. :c
Gonna miss this show
Karl season 3... 2015! not final never EVER
Wait, is this going to be the last season of Derek????
Ugh, That show was brilliant though, so different than any other shows on right now :'(
Just a final one off special. Not even a whole series. But that's fine. It worked for the Office and Extras and it'll work for this :)
Is this going to be on Netflix as well? Really hope so.
It's not on netflix. It's nowhere. Why shoe me ads for a year for something you won't let me watch!?
You know how adverts work right ?
If Karl doesn't show up in this 'final chapter', Imma be well sad :c
From what I hear, he's not, I'm afraid. Still, I hope I am wrong.
I've only seen season 1 because Ricky loaded them on his channel. Hope it all ended well?
You're a legend Ricky, big fan here, everything you touch turns to gold fella mate, Don't rest on your laurels too long
third season ? is there another baby ? is that the xmas present ? a baby for derek ? or does karl come back with the baby # therapture
you forgot to turn off the tele. great show :)
oh, no, don't end this series yet :( darn.. was really hoping for a season 3....
Brent, Millman, Noakes why do you take them away from us @Ricky Gervais
*Please* say Karl is back for this one. Please.
Ricky stop with the sentimentality already.
Really really can't wait for this ^.^ Derek is the only show that I've ever watch that truly inspires me, thank you ricky c:
I hope it's emotionally manipulative. Derek getting cancer and dying surrounded by people crying would be perfect. "Don't die Derek, you were the good one, the most pure human who ever lived. And also funny. Please, don't ever leave us Ricky, er, I mean Derek."
I would like him to see how animals are treated cruelly so he can have his glass of milk and ham sandwich. "Look at the pain you caused them Derek. YOU DID THIS!"
My sides hurt. Well played. Be careful with that cynicism mind, don't let it hold you back.
Wow...emotional song. Such a perfect show. Please tell me we will have a way to see this in the US sooner rather than later!!!
The special, I mean. I've seen both seasons and loved the hell out of them
It's on Netflix.
No!. The wait is killing me!
hope karl is in the special!
Yayyyyy I was hoping for this (not for it to be the last), Ken must sing fairytale of new York at some point
sooooo exited . ricky is my idol
Thanks to God for making me an atheist!
I hope Ricky never retires, everything he does turns out great !
@***** It was just OK imo. The idea itself was so good that it should have been much better than it turned out.
@***** You didn't enjoy Muppets Most Wanted? It was great!
Love this series
So sad :'( can't wait for the special, just don't want it to be the end :/ Just wanted Derek to pop up at the end to make me smile, I cri every tiem
must be down the pub
