Ricky Gervais is a Genius. He has just won his third Golden Globe, his Show Extras won for best Comedy. There is no one like him in television, he and his co writer/creator Stephen Merchant have come on to a winning streak with The Office and Extras being regarded as the best comedies of the past 1o anywhere on the Globe.
Why?, because they write for themselves, they write what THEY think is funny and they really couldn't care what the public or the critics think, and that's why it works.
The final ever Extras should be shown to any so called Celeb who wants to be Famous, any kid who has a myspace space and calls themselves a Gangster rapper, to people Like Britney, or Paris, for its sheer Genius, nothing else has come close to getting it right on the button how Pathetic and sad people who love the Celeb lifestyle are.
Most of all it was funny and a bit of Sadness thrown in, Poor wee Maggie!
So if you want to watch the best programme you will see in 2008, rent out The Extras Xmas Special, you will be having a laugh!
