Oh my goodness, have you watched Derek yet? I’m sure you’re thinking yeah, yeah Amanda’s talking about TV again and I’m sorry I haven’t blogged about much else lately…but Derek is worth me talking about!
Caleb turned it on the other night without me knowing what it was and I was hooked straight away. The show is mockumentary style and follows Derek who works at a nursing home with all his closest friends, it’s funny and sweet…I can’t remember ever watching a pilot in which I both laughed out loud and cried (just a little). I was so impressed with Ricky Gervais who wrote, directed and stared as Derek, usually I find him a little brash but in this he is surprisingly heartwarming (I also love that Karl Pilkington has such a large role in the show cause he’s hilarious!).
