Over here, Derek is released as a Netflix Original. And I just (excitedly) checked, and the second season isn't up yet. I'm assuming we won't get it until after it finishes its run over there.
Really want to see it now, too, because almost all of the shows I follow have finished, and I now basically have nothing new to watch. (That Hannibal season 2 finale, by the way, was one of the best season-enders, well, EVER. Holy fucking shit, that was some dynamite entertainment.)
Hey 'droo, did you miss me?
Maybe I will....... you never know your luck in the big city
Hey 'droo, welcome aboard my man! The dream team is here
Thank you for reading my story, hopefully this will explain what hide and seek alone is better then i can.
That would be it.
Man. Dat cast. I had no idea that Michael Keaton, Amy Ryan, and Danny McBride were involved in this, too. And J.B. fucking Smoove? So ready.
My only real issue with the pilot was that they may have covered too much ground. Like, where do they go from here with it?
See, I thought Ricky was the standout, as his performance following his friend's death showed the most depth I've ever seen from him as an actor. Like, I was almost moved to tears by it. Sure, Karl was his usual self, which is always great, but he wasn't being pushed into any new kind of territory. And in a weird way, I think his performance on the show sort of lends more credence to his entire shtick being an act. That his character transitioned so seamlessly into a fictional setting told me that there's always been a fictional component that Ricky, Steve, and him have just been really good about keeping covered up.
The actual character of Derek didn't bother me in the least as Gervais showed a great deal of respect and affection for him. It didn't feel like he was making a mockery of the learning disabled so much as he was just showing that sort of character warts-and-all. I would have been more offended had he tried to sugar coat it and play it without the modicum of truth.
Just got done with the pilot for Derek. Legit thought it was the best thing Ricky has done since the original Office.
