Media Madness!

Media Madness – This Week – Be A TV Extra!

Due to the popularity of Question Roulette the past few years, I thought it was time to jump to another book with lots of questions. This time the book is called Music Madness Mayhem – the book covers everything from film, television, music, and much more! So every week we will be covering questions from the book until we run out! I am not going to number them this time as I am going to be doing the book in a random order!

Topic of the week – Extras

There are so many good shows out there and it can be easy to watch a programme and imagine what it would be like to actually be in that show. Well, this weeks topic is a fun one, it is all about deciding what shows you would want to be an extra in. I thought about this and whilst there are many, here are a few that I think would be fun being an extra on.


I love this show and as a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, I really adore how they managed to bring the stories into modern day in such an unique and extremely clever way. It would be such a fun experience to be an extra on a show like Sherlock. I think it would also be a set where I would constantly want to watch Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Scott, Martin Freeman and Mark Gatiss at work because they are such talented actors. I think it would be most fun to be an extra in a scene with Benedict and Andrew even if you end up being killed, I think it would be fascinating experience seeing these guys at work.

Impractical Jokers

I really enjoy Impractical Jokers and some of the tasks they do on each other are absolutely hilarious. Some of the challenges and tasks they do rely on other people being in on the joke to help them out such as pretending to be their partner etc. I think one of the most fun tasks to be an extra in would be throwing water at one of the Jokers. I think it would be the most hilarious to throw water over Sal because he has the best reactions to things.

Once Upon A Time 

I used to love this show (until they ruined it in Season 7) and the production values in this show are phenomenal. I think it would be great fun to be an extra in this show mainly to see behind the scenes of the production.

The Simpsons

I am a huge Simpsons fan an I think this would be one of the coolest shows to be an extra on. Just imagine seeing yourself as a cartoon character even if it was for a few seconds, that would be such a bucket list dream for me.
