Last night we watched the entire first season of Derek, because all seven episodes are still shorter than watching Lincoln. We loved it. We love everything Ricky Gervais does. It was schmaltzy and silly and perverse and sweet and uncomfortable and everything we've known his work to be, but through yet another lens. Walking that awkward line of hilarity and drama and honesty and sadness and male-pattern baldness wonderfully, and Karl KILLS it in his acting debut, pretty much by playing Karl with bad hair.
Can't wait for season 2.
