Extras Series 2

4

“He sold his soul for a shot of fame.” Thanks to David Bowie there for that update on Andy Millman’s life. Season Two sees the former extra graduate to fame, via the terrible sitcom he’s written. Little else has changed for the characters around Andy, with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s more sitcom-like follow up to The Office remaining a slow-burning examination of ball-shrinking embarrassment.

BEST BIT The Easter Egg: Merchant and Shaun “Barry off Eastenders” Williamson’s dance routine to Five Star’s ‘System Addict’.
