I never thought Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant would be able to equal the brilliance, and success of the original series of The Office, but somehow they pulled it off.
Extras works because it shows a side of television, and celebrities that we don’t normally get to see. Okay, it’s all made up, but still, it works on a voyeuristic level.
This is one of the best scenes from the show, with Patrick Stewart talking about his new upcoming film, which sees him as a man who controls the world with his mind.
For Stewart however, best known as Captain Picard in Star Trek, and Professor Xavier in the X-Men films, this translates as an opportunity to see women naked.
