Storyline

Again Andy and Maggie are both extras on the same production, this time it's a period drama starring "hard-man" British actor Ross Kemp, who likes to play up to his tough persona. Another tough-guy actor, Vinnie Jones, is filming something nearby. When Andy brags to his rival, Greg, who's an extra on Jones' set, that Kemp could beat up Jones, the rivalry switches hands from the extras to the actors. Written by two_green_bottles

Interestingly, this was intended as the original episode of the series
22 February 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Originally intended as the opening episode of the series (and shown in the correct running order on the DVD), "episode 2" is an entertaining show and contains some memorable comic scenes.

I've been a fan of Gervais since his appearances in "The 11 O'Clock Show" and it's always great to see his work. His character in "Extras" is a more likable character than David Brent and the scenes with Ashley Jensen are pure magic. Jensen shines in the show and it comes as no surprise that shortly after "Extras" had finished, the doors of Hollywood beckoned.

Gervais' ability to have hard-men Vinnie Jones and Ross Kemp send themselves up in the show is a great touch.

A strong 7 out of 10, this episode shows great potential for the series.
