Sometimes I like to sit down and watch a show that has an interesting story and characters. That show this year is Afterlife on netflix. What a kick asterisks show! What I meant to type was kickass but since my site is “G” rated, I tend to tone it down a bit.
In the picture above, I can hear Tony (played by Ricky Gervais) saying to his now deceased wife Lisa (played by Kerry Godliman)
“So, passing a kidney stone on the dance floor and shoving your heel into my toes, is not what I had in mind when you asked me to dance”
The show has so many tender moments – that to me, are teaching ones. We may never know exactly what Ricky was shooting for in this series being the writer and director, but it doesn’t really matter. Every one of us may perceive the situations and story different. I find the show charming, witty, heart moving and mostly teaching. Yes, I said teaching.
Where else can you find the word “cunt” said over and over without a new law being passed – that you can’t say that? I cringed the first time I heard them say that, but upon reflection, it’s just a word being used to further the storyline.
The show has opened my heart and soul to various life/death issues. I hope the show continues to expand on these lines in the near future.
“I have hope”, which is something I said in an earlier post.
What are your thoughts on the show?
