Product Overview

HBO presents the finale of its Emmy Award-winning comedy series written and directed by British phenomenon Ricky Gervais, founder of BBC's original The Office. Gervais reprises his Emmy-winning role as Andy Millman, the one-time extra and current sitcom star whose breakthrough show, When the Whistle Blows, remains a popular (if critically panned) part of British TV culture.

Chafing from three seasons worth of recycled plotlines and catchphrases, Andy wants more than ever to break out of his TV stereotype, and is willing to do anything including maybe even pulling the plug on his hit show to do it. But does Andy have the talent and savvy it takes to get his wish: to be both respected and famous?

Editors Note
Note The two seasons of HBO's deadpan comedy come to a close in this sensational finale. At this point, Ricky Gervais's lowly extra, Andy Millman, has finally made some headway in the entertainment industry. Millman's sitcom, WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS, has been commissioned and is an outright hit. Unfortunately, the show's three seasons of predictable plotlines and critical beatings have begun to weigh on its creator. In this climax to the celebrity-studded series, Andy Millman has to make the tough decision on whether to give up all he's worked for in a bid for respectability.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review HBO's monochromatic all-Hollywood spectrum of comedies has indulged in up-and-comers ("Entourage") and has-beens ("The Comeback") before reaching into the hasn't-been bin to deliver "Extras," the pay channel's best half-hour since "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Drenched in mortifying moments courtesy of "The Office" creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, it's an at-times painfully funny tribute to wannabes everywhere, with Gervais as a self-described "background artist" who will descend into all manner of humiliation and treachery to get any speaking part..."Extras" remains genuinely clever throughout.

Chicago Tribune Wickedly funny.
Kevin Gilvear, DVD Times ...far more observant and astute than most comedy series these days...
Los Angeles Daily News More than funny...brilliant comedy.
The Washington Post Cunningly funny...mad and hilarious...roguish triumph for Gervais.
Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle ...a beautiful, cathartically hilarious and wince-inducing crash of comedic genius...
