Well in contrast to season 5 which seemed to be flagging, there's a surprising shot in the arm with some of the episodes of season 6. Location seems to be expanded upon and actor's muscles are far greater flexed. Admittedly the plots are much more of a straight forward A to B compared to earlier C,D or even E incarnations. But the time between doesn't seem to be flat, dull or dead. Undoubtedly, the convoluted plots of old were great, but they were probably all used up during season 4... So I guess what we have here is perhaps a refreshing change to give a bit more oppotunity for the actors to drive along the story. Be it our princible characters or the hoodlums. Lynda Day George proves to be a welcome asset and it's nice to see even Peter Lupus finally take some of the spotlight... Again the genesis between series 1 and 3 was still by far the best, but if episodes this late in the game show a remarkable invigoration and different take upon the concept, then it at least deserves some praise...? For, as outandish as some episodes appear to be, the main bulk, benchmark and ultimate critera is this: Was I entertained enough to forgive any plot holes and continue watching? And all I can say with the odd script quibble aside, is a resounding YES! Now, if only the entire series - PLEEEEEEEEASE - could be released on Blu-Ray???
