Storyline

As Andy's useless agent still hasn't managed to get him any work, he takes it upon himself to get his sitcom script read by somebody. He manages to get it to Patrick Stewart, who passes it onto the BBC, who decide to develop it. However, Andy finds himself stuck developing the script with a nearly unbearably camp man, a problem he shares with Maggie, who unwittingly repeats it to Andy's colleague later on, possibly jeopardizing Andy's chances of getting his sitcom made.

Great final to the 1st season
25 October 2006 | by jakkiihSee all my reviews

"You're not married, you don't have a girlfriend... and you've never watched Star Trek!" Patrick Stewart is guest starring in this episode. I'm glad that Gervais didn't get Jude Law, who was originally supposed to be in it. Even more that he didn't get Leonardo DiCaprio. Because 1) Patrick Stewart is awesome perv in this 2) the DVD extras include fun clips of Gervais trying to get phone contact to Leo, but can't quite make it.

Every scene with Patrick is great, his idea for screenplay and Star Trek stuff. Gervais' character also has finally made a screenplay that the people at BBC have accepted. Now he's put to work with this "too gay" guy at BBC, and they're planning the pilot episode. Can he handle the situation, without saying anything stupid at gays? Sure...

Possibly my second favorite episode of the Extra's 1st season, just after the Kate Winslet episode.
