Extras

From Wikepedia

Quote:
Extras is a British sitcom about extras working in television, film, and theatre. The series was co-produced by the BBC and HBO and was created, written, and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, both of whom also starred in it. Extras charts the lives of Andy Millman, his friend Maggie Jacobs, and Andy's substandard agent and part-time retail employee Darren Lamb as Millman rises to fame.

Extras has two series of six episodes each as well as a Christmas Special. The first episode aired in the UK on 21 July 2005 on BBC Two and on 25 September 2005 on HBO in the US. The second series premiered in the UK on BBC Two on 14 September 2006 and began airing in the US on HBO and in Australia on ABC on 14 February 2007.[1] The Christmas Special aired on 27 December 2007 on BBC One and on 16 December 2007 on HBO. Both series are available on DVD in the UK and the US.

The series is filmed in a more traditional sitcom style than the mockumentary style used by Gervais and Merchant in their previous series The Office. Each episode has at least one guest star: a television or film celebrity, who play what Gervais and Merchant have referred to as "twisted" versions of themselves;[2] an exaggerated or inverted parody of their famous public personas.

The show has been critically acclaimed, and has a Metacritic score of 81/100.

The reviews, LOL ... a "shitcom"

Way too funny! Couldn't understand a lot of the language (a bit fast and foreign to me) ;)

Watching the entire show, makes the Bowie at the piano clip so funny. And the guy wearing the Izod jacket made me laugh throughout. Good lines, usually it takes me a while to catch on to English humor.

Want to watch the one with Samuel L. Jackson. :D

Thanks for the link, Rumpole. :77
