    Beautiful and hilarious final episode. I am so glad this final season has been able to maintain the standards set by season 4 (even if it didn’t quite reach it) and I doubt for a good while there will be a comedy that so well satirises the television world. The decision to end the show in the most meta way possible was a brilliant one as I love the idea that the whole show is just something that Sean and Bev concocted out of their angst with Matt. Greig has been the standout this episode, this season and for the show as a whole as she has proven time and time again that she can garner comedy out of anything (her in the toilets with Carol and Helen was comedy gold). Almost her equal is Kathleen Rose Perkins who is so deserving of a Supporting Actress nomination it’s already infuriating that she won’t get one, although she was even more deserving last season. I thought it was interesting how little the finale utilised Le Blanc as it kind of displayed how, even though I think he is brilliant in the role and totally Emmy Worthy hilarious (the shit-thing in this episode a great example), it’s never really been his show, never him we were so invested in and I do pity Stephen Mangan for constantly being overshadowed in actor consideration because of Le Blanc’s name.

    I will sincerely miss the show. It’s clever commentary and brilliant characters (shout out to Daisy Haggard and Myra for forever being exquisite) have pretty much always kept me entertained. Here’s hoping the Emmys remember it next year!

    Episode Grade: A
    Season Grade: A-
    Series Grade: A-

    For Your GoldDerby Decade Awards Consideration:
