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.

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