Friday Skiving Off Work Video: Patrick Stewart on Extras

The final part of our Star Trek triptych. An extra on a film set wants Patrick Stewart to look at a script he's written. Worth viewing, if only for the punch at the end...



I want to control the world with my mind...

  1. I'm so glad Extras didn't get americanised (or should that be americanized?) when it crossed the pond and made it to the states.

    It's happened with every popular British show e.g. The office. I can't believe how unfunny the American version is...

    Looking forward to the third (and sadly final) series.

  2. Jingo, thanks for your comment. Actually, here in Japan, I'm only aware of this show through YouTube. I'd like to see an "entire" program...

    Extras is, as we say over here, "the bollocks" (i.e. "good", as opposed to just "bollocks", which bizarrely means "bad"). The first 2 series are now out on DVD, and I heartily recommend them, and indeed most of Ricky Gervais's work, especially his podcasts with Stephen Merchant.

  4. Hey, Soon-to-Be-Used-to-Be Shit, thanks for the recommendation. I've seen a couple of short clips and thought they were quite funny. I'll keep an eye out for the DVDs...
