First of all, I loved "The Office", and I loved Ricky Gervais IN The Office. But this... Not nearly as funny.
It centers around Ricky's character and another 30-something blonde bimbo who seems to sleep with every man she comes into contact with (except Ricky). Basically the show centers around cringe-worthy scenarios that these 2 characters get themselves into.
Thing is, it should be funny, but it just isn't. There's just too much negativity coming from these 2 characters that you end up either feeling sorry for them or just disgusted. It raises a chuckle here and there, don't get me wrong. Ricky only seems to be able to play one character (Himself), but this is ultimately just a sadder, more cynical David Brent.
The reason "The Office" worked so well was because it was always on the brink of descending into the "taboo" area, but cleverly it never quite did. In Extras it descends rig-th into this territory from the get-go. Im just fed up hearing Ricky's monotonous voice.
