Life’s Too Short – Initial Thoughts

Life’s Too Short is a new comedy from Ricky Gervais that premiered on HBO on Feb 19th.  A crony of cave a other night implored me to watch it observant that it was waggish so we of march had to check it out.  I watched a initial 3 episodes and have to contend that a uncover wasn’t brief enough.  I only didn’t caring for a episodes and we would contend they were normal during best.

The show’s grounds is as a “reality” uncover that follows dwarf actor Warwick Davis in his day-to-day life.  Warwick’s impression (played by himself) is an actor (true – has credits in Star Wars and Harry Potter) and an representative (not certain if that’s true) who is going by a divorce, does not have solid work and has a outrageous taxation check he has to compensate off.  The initial dual episodes start to lay out this story and we follow him as he tries to understanding with these problems and we see how he deals with his frustrations.  Every part  (thus far) facilities a run in with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (who are also co-creators along along with Warwick and a luminary “guest.”  The initial part had Liam Neeson as a guest, a second had Johnny Depp and a third had Helena Bonham Carter.

It only wasn’t quite funny, during slightest to me.  The immeasurable infancy of a amusement was subtle.  I knew where they wanted we to giggle we only didn’t laugh.  I theory we don’t caring for dwarf jokes or that smoothness system.  I did giggle out shrill twice yet it wasn’t until a second episode.  Johnny Depp had a array of jokes creation fun of Ricky Gervais (they embody a genuine life fact that Ricky poked a lot of fun during Johnny during a Golden Globes).  The other impulse was when Warwick was dressed in a bear dress giving a debate during a wedding.  I can’t remember a quote right now though it was funny.

So after 90 mins I’m not quite enthused.  I’ll watch this accidentally and not news behind to all of we unless my feelings unequivocally change.  Who know’s it could get funnier.  Are we watching? What did we think? You can watch it Sundays during 10:30PM on HBO or locate adult on HBO Go.
