What a terrible final season

I think "terrible" may be overstating it a bit

Such a slog. I stuck all the way thru because the first three seasons were so great. But season 6 was painful. Clearly everyone involved just didn’t have their heart in it anymore.

The more time Passes the stronger I feel that 4 seasons should be the max for anything

There were parts of it that were awful. The arc where Jared fell out with Richard and the company was as tedious and stupid as it was pointless. Gavin Belson should have gotten more screwed at the end, beyond people think he was a joke. And the show never figured out a way to create much drama beyond "Pied Piper is on the brink of collapse!!!!" for six seasons.

However, I liked some stuff about the final season. Guilfoyle becoming a functional alcoholic who makes some friend seems about right. Big Head continuing to fail up was also poetic. Lori in prison and completely unable to relate to human beings was perfect. And seeing Dinesh embrace becoming a terrible person was entertaining at times.

I didn't love the final episode. I'm not sure sabotaging Pied Piper was the right way to go, but the season did have some tricks going for it in the lfinal stretch.

It stopped being realistic/relatable which made it less interesting imo.

Bachman wasn't my favorite or anything but somehow after he left the show got much worse.

Maybe it's the contrast, or maybe it would've played out the same anyway, but for some reason after he left it became glaring just how one-note every character was.

Probably should've followed that McBride model of 2-3 seasons.

BigHead was my favorite in the finale

I understand/agree with why they kicked him off, but didn't work nearly as well without him. They sorta tried to make Guilfoyle and Jin Yang the "new" Bachmans, but it never worked.

>Probably should've followed that McBride model of 2-3 seasons.

Certainly should have stopped after the previous season. This one didn't add much.

>BigHead was my favorite in the finale

Also agree.

overall i think it's more the time than Bachman though. he'd have probably gone stale along with everyone else. This show suffered from the same recycling problem as Entourage, except Entourage was never all that good to begin with.
