"the Netflix series ”After life” is warm – but the lack of shades"
"Cynikern hides in fact the biggest heart. It portrays Ricky Gervais ”After life” (Netflix) a bit too simple – but nice."
"There is the evil Ricky Gervais, in recent years, the relentless whiny in his stand-up specials, and the knocks knopp knot knots knotted humanist, who among other things came up in the love story of Tim and Dawn in the british ”The office”."
"In his new comedy series ”After life” (Netflix), which premiered a couple of weeks ago, is philosophical, contemplative, easy, which Gervais back with a vengeance."
"He has written, directed and plays the lead role as lokaltidningsjournalisten Tony, who since his wife's death from cancer two years ago went into a deep depression. The only thing that prevented him from taking the life of themselves, the dog is Brandy (Anti)."
"Tony manages its total sense of futility by to mess with people, mainly his snälle brother-in-law Matt (Tom Basden), who also is his boss. The sluggish postman, a waitress who refuses to serve him a barnportion fish fingers, spåniga colleagues, harassing primary school students – yes, most people who come in his way to suffer for his malicious viciousness."
"in Spite of its dark cynicism, which sometimes balances on the verge of the unpleasant, the series is basically a nice little feelgood caramel. Gervais message of kindness, empathy and human dignity, not least in the absence of gods and religions, is liberating in these times."
"In a society that values success and finish most of all, beats Gervais a blow for the small lokaltidningskämpar as the harrows on with articles about some geezer who discovered Kenneth Branaghs face in a fuktfläck on their wall. The heroes here are a grieving widow, a homeless drug addict, a proud sex worker and the father's carers at the home for the elderly. They are rarely seen as society's winners."
"Tony says himself that he chose away a career for that he every day, as quickly as possible, wanted to return to his wife Lisa. In her left videos we get to see glimpses of their relationship, which is described as ideal despite the fact that Tony seem a störig retsticka."
"Love was almost too perfect, but it is a truth series never questions."
"all here, in his patchy absence of shades, flaws ”After life”. In Tony's journey to emancipation, many of the people he meets, mainly means si his development, rather than fully developed characters. Wonderful Ashley Jensen from ”Extras”, who plays the father's stark but warm nurse Emma, unfortunately, sad sketchy contours."
"Also shines a certain lack of self-awareness through, when Gervais constantly lets women acknowledge how kind of his alter ego Tony is, behind the cynical surface. There is hardly anything that is shown to us viewers, until it a little bit smetiga the end."
"”After life” is already ready for a second season. Hopefully, the fun and warm, but a bit simple, the evolutionary history of humanity as Gervais too conveniently tied together deepened."
"... Trump-drama. Finally have the third season of the brilliant smart ”The good fight” drawn in time, with a new episode this week on HBO Nordic. Metoo-allegations of abuse affect the law firm, at the same time as Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) continues to be visited by Donald Trump's face and voice, even at home in their marital bed with the republican spouse Kurt (Gary Cole)."
"... snuggle. New season of the ”Fab 5” (Netflix), this time in Kansas City in Missouri, came last Friday and I have already sträckkollat the whole tjottaballongen. Feel good-reality at it's very best."
"... sport. EM-qualification and skidavslutning in all it's glory, but most importantly this weekend is the world CHAMPIONSHIPS of figure skating which are sent from the japanese Saitama (SVT). Tonight is the ladies ' free program, and in the morning the men's. Anita Östlund and Alexander Majorov participating from Sweden, but the most fun will be to see the audience go in a spin over its hemmafavorit Yuzuru Hanyu, 24, who already won the OLYMPICS twice."
"... luxury accommodation. Both ”Husdrömmar” (which ended a week) and ”Who lives here” (premieres on tv on Monday) depict people with plenty of money to spend on their accommodation. Creatively inspiring, but also frustrating for anyone who hardly afford to enter the housing market at all. Why not a program on how to decorate eco-friendly and inexpensive, with the least possible consumption?"
"... tragikomik. Actually, it is oschysst to tell if the tv series does not go to see legally yet, but see it as an invitation to the Swedish channels to purchase brilliant ”Shrill” with Aidy Bryant. In the sitcom, playing ”Saturday night live”star, as Annie, a young journalist who constantly and unwillingly being reminded of his obesity. Also, at least on his body is Annie herself. Defiant, touching and funny."
