From The AV Club – Read the full article.

Sample quote:

“If I had to pick a reason why I continue to think the work of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant is vital, then, it would be that one: Gervais and Merchant’s series disguise themselves as comedies of cruelty, but after a while, they reveal themselves to be comedies of dignity, series that are about people who continue to be crushed by the world (and by their own stupidity in the case of Brent or Gareth) but finally rise above their circumstances and declare that they matter on some level.”

As mentioned on Ricky’s Blog
