Ricky Gervais: a stink over Netflix trans comments

I can't help feeling we'll look back on shows like SuperNature and see the material in them as the 21st century equivalent of the mother-in-law gag. Safe, conservative, lazy. Definitely not a place to turn to for news.

Ricky Gervais respects transgender people far more than woke activists do

Gervais's comedy about transgender people blends outrage with substance in a similar way, managing to make us question dogmas and laugh at the same time. The way the comedian wraps up the discussion of transgender people in SuperNature shines a light on how well he actually strikes this balance, showing transgender people the respect and equality that woke paternalism denies them.

Ricky Gervais shouldn't be cancelled - he deserves a knighthood

He has taken on one of the most complex, most divisive, most demoralising issues of the modern age - the imposition of the extreme views of a small minority on a bewildered majority and the characterisation of any woman who objects to having her rights eroded as a bigot and a TERF [trans exclusionary radical feminist] - and reduced it down to size with a flick of his razor-sharp wit.

Ricky Gervais: SuperNature review - tired, lame gatekeeping

The sheer mediocrity of SuperNature would be easy to get over if this was a special by a comedian in a nascent stage of their careers. Gervais on the other hand, has no excuse for being this boring.
