Extras (Season 2), Episodes 1-3

Release date: 21 July 2005 (UK)

Back in 2005 the BBC premiered this hilarious comedy based on the life of an out of work actor, Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) who takes to doing movie 'extra' work for a living. The reality is Andy has a passion for acting but no talent for speaking. These first three wonderful episodes have Ben Stiller, British actor Ross Kemp, and the one and only Kate Winslet playing themselves (though way over the top). The comedy here is British and on the edge of taste at times but believable nonetheless as you can see ordinary folks making such gaffs.

Well worth a rent, Extras gets my rating of 9 out of 10.
