I liked the second series of Extras, much more so than the first series. Too many people fell into the trap of relentlessly comparing it to The Office, but they’re completely different animals – just enjoy Extras for what it is: a well-made, extremely well-written sitcom that works on several levels. Most importantly, Extras is damn funny, especially this series. Stephen Merchant’s comedy acting (for which he won a Bafta) is a revelation and all of the celebrity guests, including David Bowie, Daniel Radcliffe and Sir Ian McKellen, take the piss out of themselves with admirable relish. Get it now from Amazon, for £14.98.
