This week Liam Neeson made a cameo appearance in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s 'Life’s Too Short.' Neeson does a very good job of playing an ultra-series version of himself with very Gervais-esque squirming uncomfortable comic moments.

Overall, first impressions of Gervais and Merchants first scripted TV show since 'Extras' and 'The Office' were mixed. Several of the jokes fell flat with audiences, with some saying Warick Davis ('Willow') is a copy of David Brent’s character in 'The Office.'

However Neeson’s cameo seems to have salvaged many folk’s opinions of the show.

Here’s a clip of his cameo:
