Extras is the spiritual successor to The Office, created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Series 1: Ricky plays Andy Millman who, having given up his day job to be an actor, finds he just can't land the big parts. In fact, he rarely gets a speaking role so spends most of his days stuck in a green room with other extras, envying the A-list stars, with his fellow actor, Maggie Jacobs (Ashley Jensen).

Each episode Extras has a different setting and cameo appearances from guest artists including: Samuel L Jackson, Kate Winslet, Ben Stiller, Ross Kemp, Vinnie Jones and Les Dennis!

Series 2: The second series sees Andy (Gervais) experience the highs he has longed for with his newly written sitcom, 'When The Whistle Blows'. However, while the show achieves high ratings, Andy's creative integrity is under threat from the catchphrase-riddled, mainstream appeal of it all. The answer; artistic credibility and celebrity friends, which leaves poor Maggie out in the cold, now working as a background artist on Andy's breakthrough venture. As before, a slew of high-profile celebrities pop up for some hilarious cameos, including Sir Ian McKellen, Robert De Niro and Orlando Bloom amongst others, all willing and able to humiliate themselves!

The Special: Andy has achieved a degree of fame but acclaim and respect are proving elusive. Maggie, meanwhile, is still a struggling extra and finds Andy's growing discontentment hard to fathom.

Good deal for this.... especially as it has the special. which my boxset doesn't.
Hot.

I picked this up in either HMV or Tesco for a tenner about 2 weeks ago. Well worth the money

Good find for just under £8

Great price, nearly ordered until I saw it was BangCD! Hate them with a passion swore I'd never use them again.
