TV Series
    HBO televises the episodes in a different order than originally shown by the BBC.
    Ashley Jensen is made to look dowdy when she is portraying an extra.
    Madonna, Brad Pitt, Jude Law, John Travolta and Tom Cruise were considering appearing in the series, but did not.
    Chicago Tribune's Maureen Ryan did not care for the series stating 'the conceit of the show wears thin pretty quickly.'
    Many critics who did not like it claimed it was sub par to The Office (UK).
    Ray Bennett of the Hollywood Reporter claimed 'There's more humiliation than comedy.'
    Lee Siegel of New Republic wrote 'The most original and brilliant show on television.'
    It is similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm in that Ricky Gervais, like Larry David, tends to say the wrong things at the worst possible time.
    Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant also created The Office (UK) and The Office (US).
    The show uses a one camera shoot so the viewer feels he is directly watching it.
    There are similarities to HBO's 'Larry Sanders Show' in which guest stars mock their persona.
    Ashley Jensen won the British Comedy award for newcomer (2005) and BANFF comedy actress (2006).
    Some lines are redone for the American HBO version.
    Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant agreed to only do two series of 6 episodes each as they did with The Office (UK). They cited that was the formula for Fawlty Towers.
    Ricky Gervais won the Comedy actors Emmy (2007) and Comedy BAFTA (2007).
    The finale was shown in the US before the UK.
    The finale gave the series a solid conclusion.
