Storyline

As Andy's useless agent still hasn't managed to get him any work, he takes it upon himself to get his sitcom script read by somebody. He manages to get it to Patrick Stewart, who passes it onto the BBC, who decide to develop it. However, Andy finds himself stuck developing the script with a nearly unbearably camp man, a problem he shares with Maggie, who unwittingly repeats it to Andy's colleague later on, possibly jeopardizing Andy's chances of getting his sitcom made.

Extras

Patrick Stewart

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.

Patrick Stewart is flat out hilarious but in this episode Stephen Merchant sweeps away the attention even though he has limited time on screen for he literally plays with Ricky's career and there is nothing he does about it is what makes it more funny.
