  1. EXTRAS:

    I listened to your recommendation last week, David, and watched that episode of Extras. You said it was the funnyiest yet … I watched, I waited, I didn’t laugh at all except when Ronnie Corbet appeared, then I never laughed again! How can anyone say that this show or Ricky Watshisname is funny??? Has to be the most overrated “comedy” on TV and Ricky deserves a BAFTA award for the most boring person on TV. It is not funny!


    Be patient, there were a couple of slow episodes early on but it just keeps getting better and builds up to an explosive mid-season episode 11 … they had a six week mid season break in America … then things remain very engaging after that.
