Ricky Gervais' Derek is the Emperor's New Clothes for the modern era.
I don't agree with this at all. Ricky Gervais has always been a marmite character, no-one seems to be in the middle. I am a massive fan, ever since his XFM days.
Have loved everything he has done but did not like Life's Too Short at all. I absolutely adore Derek, but I am in the minority in my circle of friends. Luckily, my OH feels the same as me about him which makes for easier tv viewing.
