Extras (Season 2) (2007)

Although this second season of the brilliant British original series by Ricky Gervais feels like a direct continuation of the first, there just seems to be something missing from the get go. Perhaps it’s because Andy, the extra-turned-sitcom-star hilariously played by Gervais himself, has become a whiny, perpetually glum malcontent since the first season, making it difficult to root for him, but there’s no denying that something feels off, while the celebrity cameos this time feel forced. Stephen Merchant and Ashley Jensen are just as good this season, but it’s a shame that show itself seems disengaged and disinterested in them.
