Derek Season 2

.FULL..REVIEW.

I have said Derek is Ricky Gervais’ most important show to date because it tackles some subjects that maybe not everybody wants to face, like treatment of the elderly and the lack of funding toward their care centers and medication. Season 2 also has heart and deals with difficult subjects like estranged parents and how you should put differences aside to reconnect with them before they die. That said, a lot of season 2 feels like it just gives Gervais an excuse to do what he wants. For example, I think Derek spends an episode at the zoo because Gervais is a huge animal lover and wanted to hang out with the animals.

The Zero Theorem

.FLASH..REVIEW.

This movie is beautiful to look at. If you like Terry Gilliam's aesthetics, he does not deviate much from his usual style in The Zero Theorem (2014). As breathtaking as it might be to watch a black hole on a cinema screen, the plot and theme will leave you wanting. While the love story does echo the feel of the love stories in Brazil and 12 Monkeys, it distracts us from everything else that could have been going on, which wouldn't be so bad if it hadn't amounted to nothing. What ruined the movie for me was (1) there wasn't enough math and science that wasn't double-speak, and the science that was present was a theory that was disproved in 1998, (2) the protagonist's faith is based on absolutely nothing, giving the viewer no possibility of empathizing with him, and (3), the final message is one science fiction has told us many times before. You'll ironically walk out thinking, "That's all there is?"

The name's Pond. Jaime Pond.


Anglonerd magazine is a site for Americans who love nerdy British television and British (and Irish) comedy. You'll find where to get those hard to track down TV shows, British comedians touring the States, American release dates of British films, British TV on American networks, and much more. Anglonerd is more reviews, recommendations, cartoons, and exclusive interviews than it is about entertainment news, but do check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for up-to-the-minute (all right, week) news because we like to repost/retweet others' news stories. And by "we," I mean me.

Hi, I'm Jaime Pond, New York anglophile and nerd. Have a question? Email me at anglonerd@gmail.com.

PRESS


Another blog by an American (honestly, do us Brits write any of our own TV blogs?), but this time without the infectious, and adorable, enthusiasm. Instead, Anglonerd offers a variety of insights into the bits of British TV that most Americans won’t have heard of, with a bit of a focus on comedy. If you want your British TV knowledge to go further than Doctor Who and Downton Abbey, then Anglonerd is for you, with great write ups of comedians’ and actors’ careers, illustrations of panel comedy shows, and the odd reviews and features.
