    Watched a couple of episodes of the new After Life. Good stuff from Gervais as you would expect but it’s still swinging too much towards sad than funny for me.

    Just binged watched Season 3 of After Life.

    Was ok, thought the humour was kinda forced this time and wasn't funny at all in a lot of scenes, some decent moments but not a patch on the first 2 seasons regarding humour.
    Ratty and the Nonce were just annoying * this time around and hated them and found some other characters like Joe Wilkinson and David Earl just pushed into an unfunny script this time around. Shame really as i love Gervais humour,but i can see why he doesn't ever go by 2 seasons of anything.

    The Emotional side of it regarding his wife etc was well played out by Gervais and the last episode in particular was pretty well written with just the last few mins letting it down.

    Written and Acted well again by Gervais but i honestly think it should just have finished on Season 2 now.

    First 2 seasons were excellent, third season not as funny but a well finished story of the characters around him.

    6/10

    I agree. 2 series of a show with this theme would have been enough.
    Some funny bits in series 3 but really just more of the same with no real advancement in the story.
    I watched all 6 episodes in the one go as well but found it hard going at times.
    Time for Gervais to come up with a new show with a more light hearted theme.

    Got Silent sea still to watch.
    Didn't like Kingdom.
    My name was mentioned on here before so gave it a watch & thought it was excellent.

    Kingdom is very good. Beyond me why they haven’t renewed it for a third season yet.

    Kingdom is probably the most under rated tv series around.
    A lot of folk haven’t even heard of it but it’s excellent.
    EDIT- think we might be talking about 2 different Kingdom’s :giggle1:

    After Life was excellent again, we binged it.

    It rounded off the show well. Moments in the first 2 seasons were far more depressing than any of that.

    I’ve seen people suggest the ending was bad or that he’s gone and committed suicide anyway after helping anyone. But it’s pretty obvious that it’s just time passing, the dog goes then he goes and that’s life. It’s hard to finish a show like that but thought that wasn’t a bad way.

    Few episode's in to after life 3 and it's alright..

    First 2 were phenomenal though..

    Few good one liners and quite sad again. Hopefully it picks up as it's looking like they could've quite easily left it at 2..

    HBO, but Station Eleven is fantastic. Much of it set in a post-pandemic world where a flu has killed much of the world. Came out at just the right time.:giggle1:

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10574236/

    Flashes back to before the pandemic, during the pandemic and of course after it. Focusing on a bunch of characters who all cross paths. Wee bit all over the place at times in regards to timelines and stories, but had a few genuine top tier episodes.

    7.6 on IMDb is mental. Should be around 8.5.

    @Valhalla think you'll like it. One of the writers on The Leftovers was the showrunner.

    Finished afterlife S3, dont think it was as good as previous seasons but i still enjoyed it and its definitely worth watching. The last episode was very good I thought.
    Fair play to Gervais, not many shows deal with griev and the problems everybody has in such a 'real' manner.

    Gutted Amazon are cancelling the expanse, I've just started season 4 and it feels like the best one yet.

    Tried to watch The Eternals aswell but could only last 20 minutes, painfull.
