I told you a while back about how to get a sneak peek of the "Extras" season premiere. Now I have better news: The whole first episode of the upcoming season — the one where Orlando Bloom trashes Johnny Depp and Andy (Ricky Gervais) starts filming his sitcom — is now available for free on the iTunes music store. Yup, free.
For some reason it's in the Podcasts section of the store — yeah, I don't get it either. You can get to it directly, or you can search for it in the iTunes store using these steps:
- Go to the Podcasts homepage in the store
- Under "featured providers," click HBO
- Click on the link that says "Extras"
It comes up with a "subscribe" link, just like regular podcasts — so I wonder if there will be more free episodes in the future? Here's hoping. If you want to catch it on regular TV, "Extras" starts this Sunday, Jan. 14, at 10 p.m. on HBO.
