Extras, Series 1
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
In series one, Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) is an actor but his agent cannot get him an acting job. Instead he is just an extra in films, a different film a different location, ever hopeful that one day he will actually get some lines. Ricky Gervais' follow up series to the enormously successful The Office sees him repeating the acute observations on real life used in The Office, this time in the world of films. Guest stars on Extras include both Hollywood actors (Ben Stiller, Kate Winslet, Samuel. L Jackson, Patrick Stewart) and famous faces from British TV (Ross Kemp and Les Dennis). All the actors are more than happy to send themselves up, whether it be Patrick Stewart and his sex obsession or Kate Winslet only deciding to do a Holocaust film because she thinks she'll win an Oscar for it.

Brilliant Show, but a little dear no?
I am a huge fan of this show and would love to own it on my ipod, but my word it's expensive no? Wait for it to come down in price I'd say, if you're fixed on getting it on your iPod, and if not, buy a £8 Dvd XD
It's perfectly round!! (Karl Pilkingtons Head!)
