While rightly lauded for originating The Office, I think Extras is Ricky Gervais' true masterpiece. I mean, how can you possibly top Harry Potter flicking a rubber into Dame Diana Rigg's hair? I'll tell you how--have David Bowie improvise this song for Gervais' hapless Andy Millman. Unfortunately (really unfortunately), Gervais decided against another season of the show, but Season 2 is now available on DVD. Buy it. Watch it. Live it.

What else is worth buying this week? Mimzy is pretty good, though it's sort of shitty that Bob Shaye is both the director of the movie and head of the studio releasing it. MSK3000 fans should pick up The Film Crew while fans of romance might consider Beauty and the Beast. Interested in helping Wes Snipes out of his tax troubles? The Contractor is for you. Interested in seeing the early iterations of Pam Anderson's boobs. Baywatch 1 & 2.
