TV Tonight: Dexter and Extras


It's a big night for finales on cable TV, as Dexter wraps up its second season and Extras finishes its run forever with a movie-length special.

(Side note: If these two shows were a celebrity couple, everyone would totally call them "Dextras." OK, moving on.)

The Extras movie is packed with guest stars, but it has a lot more going for it than that. The special picks up a year after the second-season finale, with Andy acting even more obnoxious than usual.

I saw a leaked version of the Dexter finale last week. I won't give away spoilers, but it was a pretty good finale. I still like the end of last year's season better.
