|The Last Episode Of Extras
||[Oct. 20th, 2006|09:38 am]
The last episode of Extras packed in so many celebs- including one star of such mega-wattage it made my jaw drop- that it couldn't help but feel disjointed. It's been a bitty show. Scatter-gun. Uncertain in tone. Where The Office was consistent and uniformly beautiful, Extras has been all over the place.|
Millman as a TV star, nominated for a BAFTA, appearing in an avant-garde play directed by Ian McKellen, prancing about homo-erotically with Jonathan Ross? What universe was this supposed to be exactly?
It played a bit like a sketch show. Some of the sketches were stronger than others.
Lots of delicious cameos. Ian Mckellen explaining "why I am so good at acting", Daniel Radcliffe and his condom, Ronnie Corbett as a coke-fiend, almost any of the little scenes between Stephen Merchant and "Barry off Eastenders".
If it failed to live up to its promise, it wasn't for lack of ambition.
