Are you a fan of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Warwick Davis and their little comedy LIFE”S TOO SHORT? Well, you are in luck, sort of. The HBO/BBC comedy, which had a seven episode run in Feb/March 2012, offers more antics in 2013.
Here is the catch to that good news. What makes it onscreen is only a special installment wrapping up the series. The comedy did not make the cut, evidently, for a full Season Two order. Of course, you don’t have to worry about the comedic trio involved: Gervais has a movie or two, Merchant created and stars in HBO’s HELLO LADIES coming later this year and as for Davis…well…there are to be more Star Wars movies.
So, what fans will get is a special, meaning an episode longer than the usual 30 minutes and likely a ton of celebrity cameos. Season One saw appearances by the likes of Johnny Depp, Liam Neeson, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carrell, Cat Deeley and Sting. As this mockumentary winds up who will make a surprise appearance and when will this special air? Well, HBOWatch will keep a track of all that for you.Oh, and now would be a good time to catch it again on HBOGo or buy your own copy.
What do you think? Is it not ironic that life is too short for LIFE’S TOO SHORT?
