Following the success of the British series “The Office,” Ricky Gervais returned to television with this sitcom about the struggles of featured actors, delivering the type of instant-classic shows that come only once in a while. Between Gervais himself and supporting players Ashley Jensen and Stephen Merchant, the show is perfectly acted and written from the first episode onward, and its famous celebrity appearances are just as funny as their reputation suggests. This is not to be missed for fans of intelligent comedy.
