TV Reviews:

The Ricky Gervais Show: At first I was apprehensive. The only good thing to come from Ricky Gervais (well, ever) was the Office and since then he's ridden on the wave of pretentious hype he was awarded by critics. The Extras thing was terribly unfunny (how on earth he got so many stars is beyond me) and his live act is a bit ‘meh’. So here we are, his first good show in years and it's actually gratifyingly good. The artist is good and the idea is simple, original and often hilarious. I will have to see how this pans out as, in the long run, the idea may only take it so far. A−
