    Is Extras available for streaming anywhere? Surprised to see it's not on HBO Now.

    Ah thanks, I checked HBO and BritBox but for some reason didn't even think to check Netflix. I really enjoyed The Office and After Life, looking forward to checking this out!

    There was A LOT of hidden messages in the Globes speech. It's actually a very funny skit he put together. He was speaking directly to DiCaprio, Deniro, and others. Why do you think I the place got so quiet?
    There's a big shock coming out of Hollywood. Stay tuned.

    In his stand up Humanity, Ricky does a few minutes on hosting the Globes. He talked about how his girlfriend was stressed out about people getting offended. His tried to allay her fears by saying, "Don't worry about it...they're not coming to the house...f' em!"

    "No politics" here on SHTV.
    Do some googling for Jeffrey Epstein and you'll start to find some stuff.
    Its not just Hollywood either, it's some of the D in DC.

    Chat shows are just a way for celebs to plug their products. Carrie Fisher on the Graham Norton was one of the rare occasions when a star opens up on says something interesting. Made more poignant because it was her last interview.

    Gervais' Ghost Town is one of my favorite movies. Both hilarious and touching. His Golden Globes performances don't interest me at all.

    If you find Extras funny (which it is) watch his “corpsing” (getting out of character and/or laughing during a take) on YouTube from the show. They’re absolutely hilarious.

    As I said, he’s my favorite comedian ever. He’s smart, brutal, and a bit neurotic. What’s not to like? So he bags on other millionaires. At the end of the evening, are they really that butthurt? If they are, they need to have a drink and a chill pill.

    I'm just gonna go ahead and say it now. If something should happen, Gervais did not kill himself.

    I think there's a huge difference...Rickles was mean to his closest friends and they loved him for it; it was a strange mixture of love and harsh jokes. There's no ''love'' in Gervais's style; he's the drunk guy in the bar who has nothing to lose and I think a guy like Mel Gibson would really like to punch him in the face.
    I like Gervais and I love the way he stands on quite a few toes, but on the whole I have far more admiration for Don Rickles......
