What I’m Watching: Life’s Too Short

Life’s Too Short: Season 1, Episode 5 (B+)

Warwick is proving him to be just as offensive a character as the creator of the show, Ricky Gervais. Searching for the perfect religion after his useless visit with his psychic housekeeper simply revealed his idiocy, as he accused the priest of being a pedophile and then left because Catholicism disapproves of masturbation. Going clubbing with his accountant produced similar results to anything he does with his assistant, with him having to claim to be a racist rather than a rapist because he wanted to be perceived of as being bad. Getting yelled at for using a mop at the grocery store to knock food down without purchasing it was quite funny, and Warwick’s bad attitude tends to negate the awfulness of the things that happen to him. Meeting a female “Willow” fan was a huge score for Warwick, but buying condoms from that very same supermarket was hardly the smartest or smoothest idea. His first date with Amy started out horribly and somehow turned good when she thought that his rude reaction to her being a dwarf was funny, and it was only a matter of time before he managed to screw it up. Taking a step back and confronting the host at the restaurant for assuming that he was meeting the dwarf rather than the tall, attractive woman was very reminiscent of Larry David. Things got much worse than he needed to when he proved too belligerent, and telling your date to pretend she’s your sister is never a good idea.
