if you like ricky gervais...

from the original, British version of "The Office"...then you should see The Extras. we've been watching them on dvd. the premise is that ricky gervais, an aspiring actor, is an extra on movie sets. every episode has some famous actor is it who is the star of that movie. the stars are pretty self-deprecating which i appreciate. kate winslet, sam. l. jackson, orlando bloom are just a few that i've seen. something i like about watching this series is that ricky gervais is actually a different character from the office - i was worried that that might just be what he's like in real life. but as it turns out...he really is acting. ha.

Hey Rebecca,
Have you been watching American Idol this season? If you are, what do you think of the new judge?

the Kate Winslet episode is my very favourite, but they are all good. Dallas and I watched this series in record time...probably b/c there isn't too many episodes altogether. There is also an episode with Daniel Radcliffe, the guy who plays Harry Potter - pretty funny.
