The new series
of the Gervais/Merchant sitcom "Extras" can be streamed from the BBC's website. This series is really excellent. There are two quality settings and Windows Media/Realplayer streams are available. Shows are only available for a few weeks after broadcast but there is still much to enjoy!

Think your job is bad? Film extras (or 'background' as they're commonly referred to) just stand around waiting all day, have to bring their own wardrobe, and must always obey the unspoken rule of not chatting up the real talent. It's the job that's pretty much 'about nothing',
with no guarantees, no glamour, no money.
Yet, with that said, there are already many who do it, and more trying to break in
every day. Are movie extras merely suckers for punishment, or are they hoping to find fame and fortune
