Extras

So… Extras, right? Did they:

  • (a.) Dress the entire crew in costume and use them as the extras? (which would have been hugely confusing on set but could have been quite a laugh), or:
  • (b.) Use extras conventionally, and then not credit them?

If (b.), is that (i.) ironic, a (ii.) missed trick, or (iii.) plain rude?

I have a similar reaction to Extras as I did to The Office. I think it’s a terribly clever idea, I chuckle merrily for about the first four minutes of each show, then about ten minutes in I find myself in the kitchen washing up. It’s not that I dislike it, I guess I just don’t find it entertaining. Weird.
