Ricky Gervais - "Derek" S2 : I'll be the first to admit Season 2 of the Ricky Gervais' British comedy about a nursing home and those who tend to it was a lesser effort than the first. But for everything else that went wrong, the one constant remained Gervais, whose created a character more endearing (obviously) than Michael Scott -- but just as meaningful, if not more so. Derek is the sweet heart of a world gone cold, and Gervais embodies him in a way unfamiliar to fans of the vicious comic. He's the perfect man to play Derek, and he plays him perfectly.
