I was watching the season premiere of 24, and who should I see pop up? Only Stephen Merchant! Apparently he asked if he could make a cameo, and they agreed. Ricky Gervais also made a cameo, but the scene was cut because he was deemed “too recognisable”, but may still appear on the DVD as an extra. Click here for the “deets”, as Merchant himself would no doubt say. Anywho, the premiere is all dramatic swoops and (much needed) exposition, with a gory ending. Definitely not as good as last years premiere, I’m still waiting for the good stuff, roll on episode 2.
