The series finale of Extras was on HBO on Sunday night, and in the 80-minute episode Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant once again demonstrated why they are the two funniest men alive. It's one of the funniest final episodes of any show--ever--and it's also tremendously poignant at times.

Even if you never watched the show, this episode is worth watching. It would be hilarious even without the show's backstory. Here's an episode summary, and HBO should be rerunning it this week.

Oh, and here's a phrase to remember (without making it a spoiler): "I didn't check my dignity at the door."
