Fantastic price and cheapest I've ever seen it.

In Stock NOW

Contains series one and two of the comedy show EXTRAS, as well as the EXTRAS special.
In series one, Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) is an actor but his agent cannot get him an acting job. Instead he is just an extra in films, ever hopeful that one day he will actually get some lines. Ricky Gervais' follow up series to the enormously successful THE OFFICE sees Gervais repeating the acute observations on real life used in THE OFFICE, this time in the world of films. Guest stars on EXTRAS include both Hollywood actors (Ben Stiller, Kate Winslett, Samuel L. Jackson, Patrick Stewart) and actors familiar to British television viewers (Ross Kemp and Les Dennis). All the actors are more than happy to send themselves up, whether it be Patrick Stewart and his sex obsession or Kate Winslett only deciding to do a Holocaust film because she thinks she'll win an Oscar for it.
Series two of EXTRAS finds extra Andy Millman commissioned by the BBC to create and star in the sitcom 'When The Whistle Blows'. However, Andy's initial happiness with his achievement is soon quelled when he finds he has to make a lowest common denominator show in order to appeal to the broadest possible audience. Andy's sitcom has been transformed from a show that was in many ways like Gervais' groundbreaking previous show THE OFFICE into a catchphrase-driven show that's filmed in front of a studio audience. Additionally, he has been told that he has to wear large glasses and a curly perm wig. The second series of EXTRAS sees Millman attempting to adjust to fame and life in the public eye and the compromises that come with. Guest stars include Robert De Niro, Orlando Bloom, David Bowie, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Jonathan Ross, Sir Ian McKellen, and Daniel Radcliffe.
The two series of the deadpan comedy come to a close in this sensational finale. At this point, Ricky Gervais's lowly extra, Andy Millman, has finally made some headway in the entertainment industry. Millman's sitcom, WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS, has been commissioned and is an outright hit. Unfortunately its three series of predictable plotlines and critical beatings have begun to weigh on its creator. In this climax to the celebrity-studded series, Andy Millman has to make the tough decision on whether to give up all he's worked for in a bid for respectability

I bought this for £12 from ebay not so long ago, and LOVED it. I absolutely loved watching each episode, the extras, the special and even the commentary. Highly recommended, this is intelligent, tragic comedy about the human condition at its very best.

I disagree strongly. It's ok, but it lurches from taking shots at gay people, disabled people, black people etc. (all with the dubious disclaimer that Gervais is using "irony" or some such nonsense) to getting ultra preachy and hypocritical toward the end. The first few episodes are very awkward as well.

It's an entertaining, but deeply flawed show, comedically. Intelligent? No. Tragic? No. Comedy? Just about. Ricky Gervais is the middle class Bernard Manning, and his trademark 'we shouldn't be laughing at this but we know we shouldn't so it's ok' schtick has long grown weary.

Try Arrested Development, Larry Sanders, Vivenne Vyle and so many more for much higher class comedy.

That said, good deal, so voted hot. I'm not suggesting it's the worst thing ever, just very far indeed from being the best thing ever.

Same here, tracked straight away. Very unusual for me as I've had to raise quite a few tickets recently on quidco re tracking failures. Call me a cynic but it always seems to be the small amounts that track successfully and the large ones do not.
I follow all the pre-purchase procedures to the letter but it still happens. :-(

Wouldn't worry, manual claims are reliable...

....but very slow!
Example 1; MoreTh>n car insurance from May 2008 failed to track properly, I raised a ticket and was eventually paid out in February 2009, 10 months later!!
Example 2; Co-op car insurance from May 2009, failed to track properly, I raised a ticket after the mandatory 90 day wait and 6 weeks after that I've still had no feedback from quidco. :roll:
Yet just a few days ago a £10 purchase from HMV tracked straight away with a value of 49p plus another earlier 29p cashback tracked straight away.
I accept the cashback is just a bonus on top of my good insurance deals anyway but it's still very annoying. :)
