Extras done after two seasons

Ricky Gervais & Stephen MerchantIt's two and out. Ricky Gervais says the upcoming season of Extras will be the last one. At least he feels that way "at the moment," he told the Britain's Sun newspaper [via zap2it.com]. As they did with the original version of The Office, Gervais and writing/producing partner Stephen Merchant say they don't want the show to wear out its welcome, a notion that occurs to most American sitcom producers much later than twelve episodes -- more like 120, say. Or never. Gervais wants to do drama next, and I think he should give it a shot. His comedies have a thread of drama running through them anyway -- Dawn and Tim's romance for example. I'm just saying a drama from Ricky Gervais not a completely whacked idea.

The second series of Extras begins Thursday on the BBC. It'll run on HBO in the Unites States, debut date is not yet set.

I suspect that the HBO will release the DVD just before the second series starts as promotion. They did the same thing with the Sopranos.

Does anyone know when the first series will be out on DVD in the states? I can't seem to find that info anywhere.

First episode was good. Anyone interested in a screenshot: http://i9.tinypic.com/4gervj8.jpg

You can guess how well his sitcom is going from the screen.

Orlando Bloom was alright, but obviously no Patrick Stewart.

I will be extremely impressed if he can get me to care about the characters by the end of this season in any way close to those in The Office.
