Extras, season two

David Bowie's guest appearance in Extras season two, now playing in the UK. (Under the fold.) And very soon being bittorrented into my house.
If they want us to watch telly and not download it, Australian broadcasters are going to have to get their acts together and do something about screening these shows within a reasonable period of time after their first appearances. I would have preferred to watch the first series of Extras one episode a week on the ABC in the civilised way, instead of downloading it and gulping the whole series down in a few days like a pathetic, greedy little fat man (with a pug nose), but I just wasn't up for waiting a year and a half for the ABC to get around to showing it.

Anyway, David Bowie and Ricky Gervais.

Great stuff. I'm not really a Gervais fan, but it's amazing how music can really bring things together like that. Bowie rocks!

To achieve true greatness a sitcom should have at least one 'song' episode. Fawlty Towers is the exception.

We watched the first two episodes last night and it's true....Ricky Gervais is a genius.

I'm really not getting into Extras (I find it too painful) but that... that is Comedy Gold.
