NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Extras is Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's follow-up to their acclaimed BBC comedy The Office. The series follows the exploits of Andy Millman, a middle-aged actor trying desperately to get a speaking role and break into what he considers to be real acting. Instead, he finds himself forced to take non-speaking extra roles in various projects along with his best friend, Maggie Jacobs. As their job features large amounts of sitting around, the two use the downtime to talk about Maggie's love life, ponder life's great mysteries and interact with various celebrity guest stars.
