After Life Season 2 Review: 4 Ups & 3 Downs
2. The Gags Don't ALWAYS Land
After Life's first season was understandably commended for just how witty its dialogue was, as Gervais never failed to lighten a situation in a second's notice.
He's very much on his game once again as Tony, but some of the humour doesn't work quite as well when it comes to other characters. Whether it be endlessly abusive monologues or a cringe-worthy joke or two, the comedy just falls completely flat on occasion.
Again, it doesn't happen often, but because of how strong Season 1 was, it's noticeable when it does.
