Despite the success of his highly-rated (but critically-panned) sitcom, Andy can't help but wonder if true artistic respectability will ever come his way. Andy decides to take drastic measures: he fires his loyal but useless agent Darren; pulls the plug on his hit show; and turns down roles he considers "beneath him." He even goes so far as to lash out at his best friend Maggie.

Completes the rather predictable emotional arc of the characters but doesn't deliver much humour in the interim. Other than padding the running time, there really didn't seem to be much justification for wallowing in the mysery of the characters quite as much as it did. To drag so much is also to be a drag and though the ending is upbeat and emotionally satisfying, it can't quite compensate for what is no doubt the moppiest episode of the series.

A better title would have been NOT extra special at all. 2 of 10 stars.

Exceptional performances deal with the reassessment of British sitcom star Andy Millman's journey to fame and fortune. Andy's struggle between intergrety or having fame , create an emotional upheavel that he can't face( or perhaps just doesn't know how to).
Stooping to doing a'big brother' type television series is the best move he has ever made. It gives him the opportunity to sort himself out ; to the point of changing a life long attitude by realizing his own beliefs and values aren't what he thought.
