After Life 2019

7.6

In After Life, Ricky Gervais plays a kind-hearted journalist who turns dark after his wife passes away.

Her parting gift to him is a video manual on how to deal with life. But his pessimism and annoyance with people keep delaying him from watching it. Worst of all, a new recruit at the newspaper is assigned to work with him. Her determined personality not only further delays him from dealing with his sadness, but gives him the platform to be even darker and more pessimistic.

After Life is a mix of dark humor, straightforward drama, and tragedy. It’s a difficult story packaged in the easiest and most digestible TV form. The episodes are quick, have clear arcs and plot; and yet, you won’t be able to shake the feeling that you’re watching something much deeper than a Ricky Gervais comedy.

It is a great show. I absolutely loved it. After watching the show you will end up having a feeling of how short life is and why one should totally embrace each and every moment of it.
