Quotes

[Maggie is annoyed at all the girls fawning over Orlando]
Maggie Jacobs: They're just doing it because you're famous.
Orlando Bloom: ...Well, they're not doing it *just* 'cause I'm famous... No, it's my looks as well.
Maggie Jacobs: I just don't think they'd be acting like that if you weren't a film star.
Orlando Bloom: ...Yeah, they pretty much would. I've always had attention.
Maggie Jacobs: No, all I'm saying is if you were the prop boy, you'd just get ignored.

Extras

Orlando Bloom

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 season ended up in an intense point that proves Ricky Gervais's brilliant writing skills and keen towards the art on handling the characters revolving around its amusing world. The development towards his career is projected swiftly not to make look like all hoax but the more interesting and intellectual arc created is on his relation with Ashley Jensen that hopefully will turn out to be entertaining and delight to watch.

Orlando Bloom whining about Johnny Depp and being petty towards his fame; even though cliched, works like a charm and on Ricky's track, his struggle that one goes through the process of creating a show is intense but the highlight will of course be the character Barry.
