This is one of the best TV shows I have ever seen. The writing is first class and the acting amazing. It more of a mini movie than a TV show and brings 'Extras' to a brilliant end. The scene with Clive Owen has to be one of the funniest scenes ever written by Gervais and Merchant. I like many would like to see Extras continue, but can understand why Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have decided draw the show to an end. Every episode has been fault-less and will go down in history as one of the all time great TV shows.

Poor Maggie...it was like the Perils of Pauline, all the things she had to go through! Still and all just one of my favorite comedies ever and this episode tied everything up nicely. The DVD is worth the price just for those few minutes of When the Whistle Blows, the gaggingly awful, pre-historic sitcom Andy stars in; it seems esp. moldy in these days of brilliant shows like Curb, The Office (UK and USA versions), and, of course, Extras.

Ricky Gervais and Ashley Jensen do a superb job of bringing this highly entertaining series to a close with this series finale as they play out the trials and tribulations of being a success (or not) in the acting world. I don't want to give too much away (as if the item's description doesn't already!) other than to say that the cast do an excellent job of mixing humor with poignancy in what is an excellent performance and statement on acting, society's fixation on celebrity, and identifying what is important. All without being overly schmaltzy.
Great viewing,

Great one long episode send off. Picks up right where series 2 left off, and continues the same style. Same dry humor with the same emotional connection to the characters. If you liked the first two series then this is obviously a must watch for you.

This is an exploration of the struggle between wanting fame, money and sex and wanting to be oneself and express one's own art. It's easy to relate to Andy's desire for success, recognition and the goodies that should accompany that. Andy treats people badly and is treated badly in return while ignoring the good things that he does have. The cast is excellent and there are hilarious moments. There are amazing cameos of real stars. I had many a laugh.

The modern obsession with fame was explored by writers Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant in The Office in the form of David Brent, a middle manager who made an idiot of himself on a BBC documentary series and then paid for it by losing his job and spending nights making appearances at nightclubs in front of people who couldn't care less about him.

In Extras, Gervais and Merchant returned to the celebrity theme as Andy Millman, the character played by Gervais, discovered that the perks attached to starring in the very popular, albeit extremely lowbrow, comedy, When the Whistle Blows, made it difficult for him to commit to his oft-expressed desire for artistic integrity.

Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale starts with Andy sitting alone on a couch in the Celebrity Big Brother house as the other housemates bicker like emotionally illiterate cretins behind him. This brief scene reveals that when it comes to the conflict between fame and integrity the former is going to win out for Andy at some point during this chapter of Extras.

Gervais convincingly portrays Andy's frustration at his comedic lot and also his desperation when his star fades after he pulls the plug on When the Whistle Blows. "No, I told you a thousand times, I'm not going to play an alien in Dr Who", he asserts to his agent post-Whistle, but in the next scene he's playing an alien in Dr Who.

Andy's progressively more abrasive personality most movingly affects his relationship with his only friend, Maggie (a superb Ashley Jensen).

Maggie's life goes into freefall after she gives up supporting artist work after being degraded by one of her favourite actors on the set of a film about Lord Byron.

We watched both seasons of Extras on Netflix. After the last episode, we wondered, "That's it?!" It really didn't have much of a conclusion.
Fortunately, there was a special series finale, and it managed to tie the bow quit nicely and leave us smiling.
It is a "must watch" if you've cringed and snickered through both series of Extras!

Ricky Gervais is so funny. I loved this finale, a perfect end to his two seasons of Extras. The characters have grown, and I love them. The Big Brother portion is an interesting commentary on our culture, and what we expect to see on "reality" TV. I enjoyed this.
