    This show isn't too bad but I find it difficult to know when to laugh when there's no canned laughter. For example, 'Everybody Loves Raymond' is one of my favourite shows because they use a laughter track that let's the viewer know the funny bits, and makes the show seem even more funnier.

We get it already--Andy's sitcom is a terrible half-hour long catch-phrase. "Extras" is becoming that way as well, with no heart and soul, and just a miserable profile of a new celebrity. Expand

    [It] passes quickly but gleefully.

    [Season 2] is far better than the good but uneven first year of the show.
  3. There's more humiliation than comedy.
