"Big, Big, Big Stars. And This Guy."
What happens when an unknown actor who can't catch a break actually catches one? For Andy Millman, who's just broken through with a TV sitcom called When the Whistle Blows, celebrity doesn't necessarily mean happiness - it just means your follies and faux-pas get that much more attention. Extras: The show with big, big stars...and Andy Millman.

Includes all six episodes from The Complete Second Season of Extras!

"...far more observant and astute than most comedy series these days...  Kevin Gilvear, DVD Times
"...a beautiful, cathartically hilarious and wince-inducing crash of comedic genius...  Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
The second season of EXTRAS finds British funnyman Ricky Gervais returning to play Andy Millman, a lowly extra who has finally made some headway in the entertainment industry. Millman's sitcom, "When the Whistle Blows," has been commissioned. But Gervais's character soon discovers that fame brings a whole new set of problems into his life, especially when the BBC starts tinkering with his ideas. The formula of the first season--which featured plenty of celebrity cameos, with stars often playing themselves--is adhered to once again, and the core cast of Gervais, Ashley Jensen, and Stephen Merchant is supplemented by David Bowie, Daniel Radcliffe, Chris Martin from Colplay, Ian McKellan, Robert De Niro, and many others.

Professional Reviews

Variety 8 of 10
HBO's monochromatic all-Hollywood spectrum of comedies has indulged in up-and-comers ("Entourage") and has-beens ("The Comeback") before reaching into the hasn't-been bin to deliver "Extras," the pay channel's best half-hour since "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Drenched in mortifying moments courtesy of "The Office" creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, it's an at-times painfully funny tribute to wannabes everywhere, with Gervais as a self-described "background artist" who will descend into all manner of humiliation and treachery to get any speaking part..."Extras" remains genuinely clever throughout. - Brian Lowry
