Critic Reviews for Extras Season 2

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (11)

The revelation on "Extras" is Ashley Jensen , who makes Maggie so kooky, so proud, and so dear.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Few stars can write and play a kicked-in-the-mouth underdog as smartly as Gervais does here.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

There's no question that "Extras" is a hoot, especially for anyone who spends much time observing the ins and outs of fame and the media, but Gervais is correct that less is more.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

When comics play inferior versions of themselves, it usually involves self-criticism. This was gloating.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Andy's humiliations as a minor celebrity aren't quite as funny as was his earlier shame at being a nobody, but as a satire of showbiz vanity, Extras can still be described as (what else?) stellar.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

"Extras" remains a sneak attack on one's defenses and yet another roguish triumph for Gervais and his witting accomplices.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

[The] second season of "Extras"...is even more excruciating -- which in this case means better -- than last year's.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

"Extras" offers a deliciously mean exploration of the mixed blessings of becoming a paid TV actor.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

[This second season] is far better than the good but uneven first year of the show.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Will Chegwin have a similar renaissance after playing himself as a racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic crap actor? Such is the Midas touch of Gervais and Merchant, he probably will.
