Extras: Season 1

EW Pick

The peerless Office lads have a laugh at Hollywood in their HBO/BBC series Extras: Ricky Gervais stars as a whining extra; Stephen Merchant is his hapless agent; Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet cameo. You’ll still be aching from wimple-clad Winslet’s episode 1 dirty talk (”I’d love…your Willy Wonka between my Oompa-Loompas”) by the time the 6’7”, bug-eyed Merchant sings ”Mustang Sally” in episode 6.

Actually funny deleted bits; a cracking good bestiality joke; footage of the stars cold-calling the U.S. looking for Leonardo DiCaprio.
