Quotes

Andy Millman: I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing. This is not the comedy I set out to do - I wanted to write summat... REAL, that people could relate to, and it's all changed, because people have stuck their nose in.
Agent: Yeah, I'm hearing you, all right. But do you know what? This is typical first-night nerves. I know what you're thinking - you're thinking "oh, the script's not funny, it's lowest common denominator," and - you know - you're right. But don't worry about it! Because people will watch anything,...

Great start off for my most anticipated return
26 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Extras, is the sit-com for all sit-coms. The British style of "nothing I say should be funny but rarely isn't" writing is the reason I love finding shows like these.The show is far more advanced than traditional comedies and the on-set setting is a precursor to shows like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Sure I can have a laugh (am I having a laugh?) at shows like My name is Earl and The Office or even How I met Your Mother, but the true feeling of comedy comes from British shows like Extras or Green Wing or Chef!.

There is a sense of love for comedy and the struggle of comedy that I feel when watching this show especially. Scenes like on-set explosion about the script he wrote and how it is being made a mockery of by the studio is a great ramble that I could see myself having if being put in a similar situation. Yet after seeing Barry and his current situation I think we would all find ourselves putting on silly glasses a couple nights a week. Just so that everyone there could 'have a laugh'.

I love the comparisons of human torture between and Maggie. In one situation Maggie must absorb a lashing of truths about herself from a successful 'friend'. A little later sits through a heavy dose of stupidity and discrimination. But in return we see both stars giving it back in a different way.

Episodes like these are built with the humor not being the punch line but yet something that shouldn't be funny. Isn't it nice to see Orlando Bloom sucking up to Orlando Bloom and then facing rejection from Maggie. The same rejection she was feeling when talking with Kimberly.

I only review shows that I enjoy. I may not enjoy every episode, but when I like a show I look forward to the next episode. But with Extras, I know that I will soak up every second with the 'towel of delight'. You will hear about it soon after.
