Extras, the best show on TV I think. But it went out like a brilliant Phoenix and some refreshing ideas were born in its wake. Except for the fact that no one seemed to be talking about it. In the show’s final moments, Ricky Gervais delivered a devastating commentary on the state of fame. And no said a damned thing? I never said anything because I missed it when it first aired and only now catching up with it. What he says about fame reminds me not only of what actors and starlets do but sometimes how bloggers, too, must “work it” in order to “get anywhere.” Get where exactly? Into early screenings or onto sets, to have lunch with this person or that person, to go to this party or that party, read this script early…Honestly, that part of the job because ultimately, it is mostly meaningless except for the part of it that’s fun and schmoozing is not fun. Anyway, cheers to you, Mr. Gervais.
