Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale

This final, extended episode of Extras follows the series template, but with less success than usual. The uncomfortable laughs are there, but they’re fewer and further between, and the tone in general is downright maudlin. None of the celebrity cameos is particularly funny, and Clive Owen’s is decidedly unfunny. Add an unhealthy dose of misplaced didacticism and you’ve got a disappointing finale to an otherwise outstanding show.
