Derek. From The Mind Of Ricky Gervais.

“She worked in a shoe shop. It’s not there anymore. I went in to buy a pair of shoes and she said to me, “Need any help?” That was it, right in the heart. Prettiest little thing I had ever seen and I said “Shoes.” I couldn’t talk. Well the next week I went in to buy my third pair I asked her out. And we were married a year later. No, she doesn’t always know me but I look forward to seeing her everyday. She’s still the same person. And every day I introduce myself and we get to know each other all over again. I’m lucky, who else gets to fall in love 365 times a year. You see here’s the thing, people see a couple of tottering old fools caught in a time warp waiting to die. But I see a beautiful young girl from Dublin who wants to spend the rest of her life with me. I win. Don’t feel for me or Izzie. We had the best life we could have ever have had cause we spent it together.”

I have fallen in love with a show called Derek on Netflix. I went in thinking it would be on the same comedic level as The Office. But it wasn’t and that’s not a bad thing. It is a different type of show. This show works on many different levels: amusing, reassuring, and touching.  This show made me cry. This show made me laugh at Gervais’s famous awkward moments. This show clenched my heart. This show cheered me up. This show made me think. This show gave me hope. This show is a masterpiece.
