After Life: Season 3 TV review - Aussieboyreviews


The final season to Ricky Gervais’ series is emotional, funny, but is slightly weaker compared to the previous seasons. Fans of the series can expect lots of cringe moments and offensive language.


While Tony is no longer quite so grouchy and negative about living life, he continues to struggle to fill the void left behind by his late wife whilst dealing with the rest of the world.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Ricky Gervais’ finale to this emotional, hilarious and perky series doesn’t glow as brightly as the previous seasons do, mainly due to his new style. The closing scene is perfect, but After Life’s third season takes a different approach to camera movement and storytelling. It’s hard to say this season moves in lots of directions and there’s a surprising use of several songs. Other than the differences, the characters remain quirky, the laughs remain at a cringe level, and it’s highly coarse in language.
