Default Extras

Please tell me some of you watch this show. It's on HBO and it's one of my favorite shows of all time. It's created by and starring Ricky Gervais. You may recognise him from the good (British) version of The Office. The really unique thing about Ricky Gervais' style of humor he creates situations that are so awkward and uncomfortable that they make me almost physically ill. If you've got HBO and you like shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld and The Office, I'd highly recommend it. Theres 2 episodes left in the season and airs on Sundays.

So, anyone else watch this?

In all honesty, Ricky Gervais' office beats the dogsh!t out of the American office so you're damn straight you're going to rent the DVDs for both series!!

I read on TVGuide a few moments ago that the stars has just announced that the series will end its run on TV after 2 seasons and will wrap up the show with a TV special instead of doing a 3rd season. They also said that this decision was decided early on in the series.

That doesn't surprise me. Ricky Gervais does usually have a good idea of when a TV project has completed its run and doesn't push it any further, even if it means that no more profit can be made. I wish that practice were exercised more often in America. Half of the longer running shows on TV right now should have been taken behind the woodshed and shot years ago.
