The Last Byte: Funny but not all it has been in the past
21 October 2013 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

With everyone getting successful in other projects (particularly O'Dowd) it is a good thing that they go the cast together even if a whole season was not possible. This final special is not the perfect way for the show to bow out though, since it is not as good as it once was. In particular the plotting jumps around a lot and as such feels fragmented. This isn't a problem if it all works well, but it doesn't and as a result it opens itself to having "good bits" and then less good bits. The ideas are a bit all over the place as well and not all of them work in that way – some are silly but build well while others seem forced and go nowhere.

I did still laugh though – not consistently but enough to make me feel like I enjoyed the episode. The cast are on mostly good form. O'Dowd is very funny but as always Ayoade steals it for me with his Moss. Parkinson has one great moment in the episode but mostly seems out of it. Berry is a disappointment – I usually love his bits but the material isn't there for him this time. Nice to see Fielding in there briefly and there are some other nice throwbacks. Generally though it is not what it was. Worth a look for fans and there are some good laughs, but I could probably have lived without this one extra go round.
