Extras

Sir Ian McKellen

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.

Ashley Jensen's character could not go more awesome than that especially when Ricky is in need of and the irony to that is that he does rely upon her a lot when in a cornered situation and tells her everything (the whole 'autograph' sequence is flat out hilarious and quirky).
