I saw a bit of this show Extras starring Ricky Gervais on the plane coming back from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2007. Gervais did stand-up in the castle across from my hotel when I was there, although I didn't catch his show. My daughter and I were off to see the Ladyboys of Bankok.

Anyway, I wasn't much amused by Extras - as with most other British sitcoms my reaction to the show was generally "why is that supposed to be funny?"

But I had to laugh at this clip a friend of mine posted on her Facebook page - Patrick Stewart could write scripts for a local "mock-buster" low-budget film company I've blogged about here before.
