I loved the last series of Extras, and this new one didn't disappoint. The scene where Andy is saying that Barry still has his dignity just as a tonne of hidden sweets falls out of Barry's jacket had me in tears! ;D
"Is he having a laugh?!"
David Bowie is in this weeks episode, should be good.

Can somebody please explain what is "Extras"? Is it something like "Before they were famous"?
Have you ever seen "The Office" Mariet? Extras is by the creators of that. The two main characters, Andy and Maggie, are extras - the bit part actors that crop up in the background of scenes and occasionally have a line or two in it. The two other main characters are Andy's useless agent, and Shaun Williamson who was Barry in EastEnders - and Andy's agent always calls him Barry!
Each week they have a different guest star who send themselves up completely. The first series featured Ben Stiller, Ross Kemp, Vinnie Jones, Kate Winslet, Les Dennis, Samuel L. Jackson and Patrick Stewart. The second series features Orlando Bloom, David Bowie, Daniel Radcliffe, Ian Mackellen and Chris Martin from Coldplay.

oh wow is chris martin in this series?? man i love coldplay lol xx
Chris Martin is in next weeks episode Nics! I love Coldplay too.
Last night's episode of Extras was brilliant. Daniel Radcliffe was so funny, especially when he flicked that condom onto Diania Rigg's head! I was in tears ;D And then there was Andy's fight with midget actor Warwick Davis (Prof Flitwick in Harry Potter), that was great - and the stuff with the Downs Syndrome Boy was a typical Extras cringe-inducing moment!
I definitely rate Extras above The Office now, and I love The Office.
