After Life 2 Review: The Best of Gervais

After Life premiered its second season a few weeks ago on Netflix, directed and starring comedian Ricky Gervais.

Tony led a perfect life. But after the sudden death of his wife, instead of committing suicide, he decides to push what he can and cannot do to the limit and begins to do and say whatever he wants. Something that will be complicated when everyone decides to try to save the good person they knew.

After Life was successful in its premiere,

an idea that he combined comedy with the feeling of pain generated by the loss of a loved one. In this second season, Gervais makes a bigger hole for drama, forgetting a bit about comedy, and in my opinion, he succeeds. We see a few more days in Tony's life, no more and no less, but he still has a charm of his own. In this season the secondary characters they are more developed, although some fall on the topic or the forced. We have Gervais being edge and acid and suddenly, she begins to cry, a slide of feelings.

In After Life 2 Gervais plays with the conditions of the format and those that he imposes himself,

turning them into an expressive tool, in the same way that gets emotional substance from the blackest and cruellest humor imaginable. Tony judges the philosophical truths he faces, criticizing British citizens and struggling between suicide or the better future. Yes, we find a repetitive series that Gervais justifies saying that this is life. In part I agree and in another I have the feeling that a good idea that has already been repeated has been exhausted and not to offer anything new.

The second season of After Life has six short chapters,

they do they do that that makes it repetitive be bearable and that tears and laughter make us want from a third season.
