Barney bites back:
Extras episode 2 tonight and I liked this one better than last week. David Bowie was pretty good but Sean Williamson (Barry from Eastenders) is the star of the show. The guy is, quite simply, a comedy genius. I think the 2nd series should progress to the point where Sean comes up with his own sitcom - which is an offbeat, trendy hit - whilst Andy Millman disappears into obscurity. Sean then stars in and writes the 3rd series. As my wife's friend's dad said once when watching Star Trek, "it could 'appen."
Forgot to say last week, but if you only have half an hour to spare on Thursday nights, That Mitchell and Webb Look is actually better than Extras - it's a goddamn classic!
