  • Chris Martin is full of himself and Andy gets a BAFTA nomination.

    I really like Extras. I do think it is a very clever show. Ricky Gervais is one funny guy.
    I have a particular problems with this episode. We all know how annoying the agent can be (and how completely stupid) but here he goes a little too far. The same goes with the friend.
    So, while the episode manages to be good for the most part, it ends really bad.
    The beginning with Chris Martin is hillarious. He is great playing an a**hole who only cares about his album.
    The "pretty woman" part was clever too.
    As I said before, it's the final part, the BAFTAS that really feels like too unfair. You start wishing that he would fire his agent and punch his friend in the face.
    While we are used to Andy losing, here it is just not funny.
    Bottom line: not the best episode of the show.
