Ricky Gervais's most recent creation, Derek, has inevitably divided opinion - some think it's offensive to people with learning difficulties or disabilities, others think it is a sweet and harmless portrayal of a character we don't usually get to see the likes of. I think I'm in the latter camp. In a nutshell the show is this: a totally kind and selfless - yet odd - man works at a care home for the elderly. That's it. There's no making fun or being derogatory to anyone with disabilities at all, as far as I can tell.

The supporting cast are spectacular (most notably, a surprisingly good turn by Karl Pilkington as the home's put-upon yet happy-to-help and totally no-nonsense handyman Douggie.The show is warm, cheeky, usually funny and always a little sad. It's lovely. I'm enjoying it very much. Last one next week, so you can catch up on 4OD now!

A Return!

Oh God! It's been so long since I've blogged about anything that I've almost forgotten how to do it. But I used to love doing it (indeed, still do) so I'm making a promise to post more often. Starting today, with the return of Being Human! Alongside that, there are some other great shows available to watch lately too. Channel 4's Utopia and Netflix's original series House Of Cards have both had me hooked! I'll be telling you all I have to say about all three very soon, so stay tuned!

It's nice to be back :)

EDIT: Due to no internet for a week, no computer for two weeks and no telly you'll have to wait a little longer for these reviews... Sorry.
