Extras

Kate Winslet

A Golden Globe Winning series; Extras is another one of Ricky's gem that came out from his pot and just as it predecessor it stands out alone on witty humor, practicality awareness and no nonsense sequences that glues this majestic series. Ricky Gervais keeps it true and to-the-ground one of the main reasons why it works everytime when he draws the curtains.

The tone and the environment is palpable from the first frame projecting the discipline and the dedication of Ricky's work. It can be tricky to give space and range to the guest stars and still forward the plot line maintaining the quality of the material; something to look forward to.

Kate Winslet's track is hilarious but the real highlighter is Ricky Gervais's beliefs and preaching on religion; especially the whole conversation in the meeting is flat out amazing which makes it the best episode till now as it debates the opposite side of it.
