Trivia

When Maggie meets Samuel L. Jackson, she says he played Morpheus in The Matrix (1999), and he corrects her saying it was Laurence Fishburne. The scene is based on the fact that Jackson is often mistaken for Fishburne (and vice versa) in real life. See more »

Quotes

Andy Millman: He doesn't think you're a racist.
Maggie Jacobs: He does! He's just seen me say to a black woman, "You're not allowed to sit on this bus." It's like that whole racism-on-a-bus incident all over again.
Andy Millman: What, the Rosa Parks incident?
Maggie Jacobs: It wasn't in a park, it was on a bus.
Andy Millman: Sure.

Extras

Samuel L. Jackson

A Golden Globe Winning series; Extras is another one of Ricky's gem that came out from his pot and just as it predecessor it stands out alone on witty humor, practicality awareness and no nonsense sequences that glues this majestic series. Ricky Gervais keeps it true and to-the-ground one of the main reasons why it works everytime when he draws the curtains.

The tone and the environment is palpable from the first frame projecting the discipline and the dedication of Ricky's work. It can be tricky to give space and range to the guest stars and still forward the plot line maintaining the quality of the material; something to look forward to.

The whole episode builds up to a conversation that is filled with awkward topics and dialogues that lets you cringe on the seat and this is where Ricky shines being aware of the potential that he is capable on projecting the varied topics within few minutes.
