There are so many obsessive Green Wing fans out there, with so many different wishes for the series, that this special could never have done right by everyone. As it turns out, it's a bittersweet, and funny episode, but it does feel like it could have done with a bit of pruning. The parts with the character of Martin Dear in particular feel like they were popped in to give the actor something to do. But Statham and Joanna's scenes were genius (behold the cows), and all the love-triangle stuff with Mac and Guy is particularly funny and touching. The ending is definitely odd, and might not please all, but the 'alternative' extended ending gives a touch of hope to caromac fans...
overall, it's a quirky and mostly-satisfying way to say goodbye to a much-loved show.
