This ninety minute finale for the brilliant sitcom "Extras" represents a dramatic shift in tone from the overall series (even the darker second season), becoming caustic and gleefully showing the dark sides of fame and its impact on one's social circle. It's occasionally punishing and downright masochistic, but it's the logical conclusion following the events of Season 2 and features some of co-stars Ricky Gervais and Ashley Jensen's best work from the entire series.
