I've searched so timeline away if necessary ;)

Anyway, just watched season one on DVD and laughed my ass off.

Stars Ricky Gervais of "The Office" fame. Guest stars include Ben Stiller, Kate Winslet, Patrick Stewart, Samuel L Jackson.

It's basically about Andy Millman, a struggling "actor" who is merely surviving on being an extra while trying to get speaking roles and working on a script. Some great chemistry between Gervais and his female sidekick - the trampy and daft Maggie Jacobs (played by Ashley Jensen - EastEnders, Casualty, The Bill)

Andy also has the WORST agent in the history of agents - played by Stephan Merchant (co-writer of "The Office")

there's another thread but why not have another one...I went through the first season in a 2 day span :D ...laughed my ass off when gervais squares off with the girl with cerebral palsy!


(never thought I'd conclude cerebral palsy with an exclamation point)

there is another thread? I must have missed it. And yes - the Patrick Stewart ep was brilliant.

Apparently, there's a second season? I don't know if it's on now or coming soon, but whatever - this is great stuff if you've ever been in film/theatre or just like a good laugh!

I just watched the one with Daniel Radcliffe playing himself.

He was brilliant!
The one with Kate Winslet as a nun was good too.

Great show. Every episode is a winner. Both seasons. Gervais is actually really funny in this. More understated. Not like that horrible UK version of The Office.. ;)

Oh god, a Chris Martin episode. I hate Coldplay with such a passion.

I don't care how they ironically portray Chris Martin from Coldplay as this egomaniacal, self-professed musical genius.. And we're supposed to think he's mocking the media's perceptions of him and having a laugh about himself?

I still think he's a huge wanker. Waaaaaaaaaaah, I write sad songs and wear motorcross jackets.. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaahh...

Alright, enough cough syrup!

Ugh, Chris Martin is singing the theme during the credits.
I had to turn it off before my balls started to disappear.

best british show hands down.
season 2 really takes it to another level.
the best part of this show are all the celebrity cameos and how they play along and poke fun at themselves.

I finally downloaded this last week and have watched almost all of them. So good
Gervais does 'akward comedy' like a fucking pro.

my two favs scenese so far are the david bowie vip scene and the end of the play..
"i love you"
"in the play"
