TV series Extras 1 season watch online for freeAndy Millman dreamed of becoming a great actor, a performer whom the whole country would know, but his career did not go uphill. The young man seemed to lose heart, but he is confident that he will be able to return to his best form and win the recognition of millions of viewers and dozens of critics. The character is very able-bodied and very talented, but so far he has to work only as a performer from the crowd. Each new role is a complete disappointment, because sometimes even his characters do not have a name. The protagonist constantly tries to break into the highest acting circles, but each time he experiences serious setbacks. He tries to give all his best, but something is always missing, and sometimes he just has no luck. What will be next? Will luck smile at young Andy Milliman?
To the notorious reclusive couch potatoes, cynical about everything that is offered to their attention ... I highly recommend / change their views. in the end, it turns out to be solved with the help of good English humor / banter over all the well-known clichés and, in general, also seemingly hackneyed topics as never before is appropriate and catastrophically good. P.S. You don't often laugh at a comedy alone / Extras are a beautiful exception
Actor is not an actor. One will seem to be sitting on a throne, performing a filigree performance, pulling the entire movie on his own hump, the other will be remembered for his role in the brightest duet, the third, therefore, will amaze with a juicy cameo, the fourth will just amuse the eye. Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) is one of those who just appear in the frame for a few seconds. No statements, no active actions (in the best case, he will pass the tray or stamp loudly) - well, later, during installation, even this fleeting occurrence will probably just be cut out. For there is nothing to occupy the frame for how much in vain. Those like him are called extras. In general, he considers himself a real actor - professional and venerable - and is extremely upset that he does not have many proposals at 40 with a very round figure. Andy is impudent, boorish, proud, cynical and acrimonious - that is, in fact, valuable. His closest friend is Maggie Jacobs (Ashley Jensen), just like him, a would-be actress, in general, with much the least pretensions. Andy's affairs are in charge of a silly agent Darren (Stephen Merchant), who sits in his pants in the office, showing his own deepest developed intelligence beyond his years, tapping boobs on a calculator (don't ask how). So, The Extras consists of 2 seasons, 6 episodes each, and this division is extremely important. 1st 6 are devoted to Andy's permanent throwing in search of a job.On the way he meets Ben Stiller, without tired of repeating the box office records of his own "Meet the Fockers", Kate Winslet, playing a nun just for the sake of Oscar, along the way giving lessons on phone sex, Patrick Stewart, who wrote an excellent script in every sense, choosing a role for himself "Undressing with a glance", gorgeous Samuel L. Jason, sparkling with his own "black charisma" and the rest. The humor here lies in the quantity and quality of the idiotic situations that Andy finds himself in, often pulling Maggie along with him. Everything here is built on dialogues professionally written by Gervais and Merchant: usually, someone chatters or lies, and, finally, a narrow game of bewilderment and misunderstanding, and sometimes stupidity begins, from which it is indescribably difficult to emerge as a winner. Season 2 changes the direction of the television series. Andy finally gets what, in fact, he wants - he has his own project, he is on TV, he is also famous, but he is faced with questions of a slightly philosophical disposition. Is it worth, to put it mildly, to cave in under control, just how to make money and be successful? Is it worth just continuing to pull from this gold mine (the series he made, by the way, is a nightmare - an evil mockery of all the pavilion comedies) in order to pull? What about the dream? And what have I achieved in general? So The Extras are transformed into a melodrama, not so much funny, but somehow deeply thoughtful. Almost a year later, after the finale of season 2, a special Christmas issue of "Extras" was shown (it was not shown in "City Slickers", to put it mildly). With a duration of 80 minutes, it is almost one hundred percent devoid of humor, but more immersed in melancholic reverie. By the way, the series is fully explanatory. Andy's monologue seems to be the best there is in The Extras. A small person ... How much has been said for you: they felt sorry for you, and laughed at you, and also tried to realize - and Gervais and Merchant themselves finally tried on this guise. It turned out extremely impressive. So don't ask if it's worth looking or not. The answer is clear - worth it. Not only in order to just say "ha-ha" banal.
