Dear Mr. Gervais:

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for “Extras,” the show that everyone in the U.S. entertainment media circuits has been championing over the course of this week.

I know that there have been heaps of praise thrown your way by the wise scribes that recognize the brilliance in your television program. Everyone loves you right now — for good reason, I say.

I, however, wish to thank you from a much more personal perspective. No, there is no salacious content to this note of appreciation, fear not. It’s just that I’ve been having what would pretty much amount to a really lousy day, and clips from your television show have infinitely brightened my spirits.

(I would also like to extend thanks to YouTube.)

Best of luck in future endeavors,
