Review: Derek: Gervais at his Philanthropic Best (2013)

This underappreciated sitcom by writer & actor Ricky Gervais is decidedly special. The series revolves around a possibly autistic carer who works at an old people’s home and straddles the line between bold characterisation and editorial insight with exactly the right poise. Gervais’ trademark satire continues to shine but this time comes from a place of strong social responsibility.


Review: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is deserving of its flagrantly ironic title. It delivers what is promised: humour that’s pitch-black. Dark comedy has always been used to explore serious social issues in a light-hearted way, but creator/actor Rob McElhenney is particularly adept. Not only does he confront the most personal aspect of life – our humanity – but does so in a way that is thought-provokingly fun. In short, this superb sitcom is an unforeseen advocate of modern morality. The four main characters Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), Charlie (Charlie Day) and Mac (Rob McElhenney) are incredibly mean, selfish, vain and cowardly to the point of abstraction. Their questionable choices always lead to anarchic conclusions, both physically and mentally, cleverly subverting their personalities.
