    One episode into the season and it seems like a totally different feel from the self-loathing, self-defeating Hank we have tuned in to see in the previous seasons. But I suppose considering how season 6 ended abruptly, something has to develop. In the first episode, seems to be going into TV writing-how creative!? I give this season 2 more episodes,,,,,

    This show is at the end of its run. The first 4 seasons of this show had a large story arch, bigger than any one individual subplot. That ended. Season 5 was an interesting change of pace. Season 6 left us the viewer, in the same state as the show's writers. Struggling to re-claim the greatness with which it began and looking for inspiration in new sources. Both those seasons had momentsThis show is at the end of its run. The first 4 seasons of this show had a large story arch, bigger than any one individual subplot. That ended. Season 5 was an interesting change of pace. Season 6 left us the viewer, in the same state as the show's writers. Struggling to re-claim the greatness with which it began and looking for inspiration in new sources. Both those seasons had moments of excellence, despite having weak overall plots and a vague sense of direction. Season 6, despite having all the same characters we've come to know and love (or hate) has lost its direction. There are new additions to the cast.Both Michael Imperioli and Heather Graham surprisingly slide seamlessly into the cast. Both characters could have been more complex but were good. The character playing Hank's new-found son less so. In the last couple of episodes the show tries to return to its roots, but is has drifted so far it feels superficial at this point. Despite what some critics say, at least it ended with a few good moments before it could further decline into outright terrible. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This show has continued to decline in quality. This season seems far away from the original despair, loneliness, hilarity and heart the show began with. We still care about Hank because David Duchovny is pretty damn good and still maintains an aspect we can still cling to as the rest of the show goes overboard. He is the reason the viewer still cares. Despite that, the writing has completely deteriorated. Hank is STILL looking to be with Karen and there is yet another wrench, Runkle has dick and woman issues and everyone is colliding usual. The viewer might life here and there but this is drivel for the most part. The series should have ended when Hank walked through the set of his own movie seeing the people he knows in his life and the actors who play them. That was good writing and a good show. This season is just a rehash. Expand

    The self-consciously "searching" moments that arrive in the last handful of episodes are unearned, long emptied of the first season's promise.

    The swan-song episodes (and the pay service made all 12 available in advance) is emblematic of what’s been fun about the show but also the balancing weight of what’s wrong with it, including a slightly cloying aspect to the central relationship that makes it hard to care about its outcome.
