Ricky Gervais’s sentimental seven-episode mockumentary series, which already aired in the UK, goes up on Netflix on Thursday. So binge away. Gervais plays a kind, simple, and possibly autistic man who works in a retirement home. “They ain’t got long,” Derek says about his charges, “so every minute is important. I just want them to be happy all the time.” Karl Pilkington, the guy Gervais laughs at on his podcasts and on his HBO series, is onboard as Derek’s handyman roommate.
