Under-appreciated Television

I was listening to a really entertaining Ricky Gervais interview on Fresh Air last week, and I realized it's a shame how few people have seen his terrific HBO series, Extras.  If you haven't seen it, it's well worth putting in your DVD queue.  Here are two of my favorite scenes from the show– the first is one of my favorite TV scenes ever.  Patrick Stewart is just brilliant.

 

And this one with Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter) is terrific, too.

This also got me thinking about an also very under-appreciated show on HBO, The Comeback. Pitch black humor perfectly done. Anyway, consider giving both of these a try.
