Default After Life

Wow. What an amazing show this is. Tragic, hilarious, bittersweet - you won't know whether to laugh or cry. I don't care if you don't like Ricky Gervais, just watch it, you'll come out of the 6 episodes with a much better understanding and appreciation of character and dialogue. It's so wonderfully nuanced and answers the $64,000 question of how do you take a story of familiar tropes and make it fresh and original.

It's also a masterclass in making the most out of a limited cast and limited locations - perfect for writing small-budget, and even contained, scripts.

Binge-watch it on Netflix now. 6 x 27 minute episodes. I guarantee you'll blast the first 3 back-to-back at the very least.

One of last year's best shows, in my opinion. Can't wait for season 2.

Yeah amazing show.... wondered if Gervais was drawing on something personal there

edit: Now I see, he was preparing for the GGs
I heard the starting gun
