Ricky Gervais' melancholy Netflix comedy. Tony (Gervais) had a solid life, then his wife suddenly dies, and Tony changes. After contemplating taking his own life, he decides instead to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on.

It wants so badly to be both comedy and drama-to be both funny and touching-that it fails pretty spectacularly at both.

Maybe this all sounds a bit petty. It's frustrating, though, because Gervais is better than this.

After Life is something else again, straddling all of that beautiful discomfort with something profoundly more complex, an exploration of the pivot between life and death.

But After Life made me laugh at least four times an episode, and I felt that here was a genuine, rather brave and quite decent attempt to portray true, hopeless grief on screen.

Ricky Gervais at his best. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll make strange noises doing both at the same time while watching this dark comedy.

I'm not sure Tony says anything controversial on any of these topics, it's just Gervais with a dead wife so that you might sympathize with him.

In After Life, Saint Ricky essentially debates Bad Ricky. Here's hoping their next collaboration turns out better.
