Just finished series 2. What a genius write by Gervais. Honestly can't describe it.

Urgh, I'm only 3 episodes in. I don't want to rush it. It somehow makes me feel good?! As I said, hard to describe, but this series gives me feelings that I don't have with anything else. It's just a joy to watch, even in it's sadness sometimes.

It's getting a slating on Twitter by some people but I'm like you, it's such a weirdly feel good series but yet has these really emotional and touching scenes in it too. It's the perfect balance.

Watched series two. Will admit that It had its moments but am I the only one that thought it had went backwards? Like, it’s as if the first series never happened as all the progress of some characters just ended up being disregarded. The worst being Gervais, his character showed no development at all throughout the series.

I did find a few bits hilarious but the show kept repeating the same sort of scenes where Tony would talk to a character and eventually start crying over his dead wife. To be honest, it became tiring after happening for the 5/6th time.

I’ll watch season 3 out of curiosity, but I didn’t enjoy this one nearly as much as the first.

Have started watching this - first 2 episodes last night. 
I still enjoy it. I think if you go in to it thinking it's gonna be absolutely hilarious and insanely good then you're just setting yourself up to be disappointed. It's a comedy but it's very dry and dark. 

For something so emotive, it's quite unique for a comedy programme and quite an achievement to make people laugh about it. But that's Gervais' style if you watch his stand-up. Isn't afraid to go so close to the bone but justifies it.

Top series.

Don't want to be too critical but I thought some of the plot and story/character development was not well done in the second season. The first season seemed to fit together so nicely with everything but I didn't like some of scenes and story in the second season, it either seemed a bit forced, quick, unrealistic or just a bit too much if that makes sense.

Being critical though doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. I'm left with similar feelings to @Tommy and @Pyfish when watching this, it's very endearing and balances the emotions very well.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the second season but it wasn't as good as the first. Overall, fantastic though, some of the best work Ricky has done. Great to watch given the current situation these days.
