Although this season provides a nice ending to the series in the form of the two-part final episode - which is really a sort of It's a Wonderfull life-like reflection of the entire series, by and large this season was used as a "proving ground" for the female lead character they were looking for to headline the series "The Raven".

So a good number of the episodes in this half-season were taken up focusing on various other immortals. Not that that was such a bad thing as by-and-large I think they were decent episodes, but Duncan really isn't in them much, if at all. In fact, in the extras on the DVDs that's one of the things mentioned frequently - that Adrian Paul wasn't as available this season as he had been before - that he wanted to bring the series to a close for whatever reason, etc.

All that being said, this is still a somewhat important season in the series as Duncan comes to terms with his actions in previous seasons - the killing by his own hands - and the character goes through an important transition. For that reason alone, you might want to consider this season. Even still, when standing this season up against seasons 2,3 and 4, this one pales in comparison.

For "Highlander" fans everywhere, season six was a major disappointment. It started out bad, and it didn't get much better.

Picking up where season five left off, the finale season of the series begins with "Avatar", which has got to be one of the worst episodes of the show. When you see Duncan cover his ears and go berserk at the sound of rock music, then rip the stereo out of the car, all for no apparent reason - you know you're in trouble. Luckily for us, the 5,000-year-old Zoroastrian space demon behind these horrible episodes went poof in the next episode, "Armageddon". One of the biggest problems with season six is that half the episodes are used as "backdoor pilots" for a spin-off show - that is, episodes that use MacLeod for as little as thirty seconds and which feature a female immortal as the main character. The episodes which do star MacLeod suffer from horrible writing, namely "Black Tower", which is probably the worst episode of the whole show.

Season six did have a few good moments, though. The first of these was "Justice", an Agatha Christie-ish flashback episode in which Duncan sets out to find the culprit behind the "murder" of Hugh Fitzcairn (played by Roger Daltrey). Then there's "Indiscretions", in which everyone's favorite buddies, Joe and Methos, finally get their own episode. The greatest part of the season however was the two-episode finale, "To Be" and "Not to Be", which draws obvious inspiration from Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life".

Well, maybe if Adrian Paul hadn't had his hair cut for this season, the show might have ended better. Then again, maybe he wouldn't have received his paycheck and the show wouldn't have ended at all. Which still might be better than this.

Season six is strictly for die-hard fans of the show, or those looking to complete their "Highlander" collection. It's an astonishingly bad season and an unfitting demise to a great show.

Highlander, which is one of my favorite collections, was tainted with the last season. Out of the 13 episodes, Adrain Paul makes himself scarce, if in the episode at all. The only three worth the price was the series finale (last two episodes) and seeing Methos once again. Otherwise, save yourself the money and just get the series finale "To Be" and "Not To Be". The last three discs are all extras with a great many things that were already seen on the previous 5 seasons.

The Good:

Episodes 1 & 2: The first two episodes could be considered concluding chapters of Season five's finale.

In the middle of season six we get an entire episode of Roger Daltrey and Adrian Paul in a comedic period piece.

Episode 11: A wonderful episode centering on Joe and Methos sure to delight the fans who yearn for more screen time for this duo.

Episodes 12 & 13: The final two episodes: To Be and Not To Be provide an opportunity for most of the stars of the series one last reunion.

The Bad:

Episodes 3 thru 10: Unbeknownst to fans (or at least most of us) at the time, Season six was being utilized in large part as a spin-off proving ground for what would later become The Raven. This would not be under the heading of "bad" had they used these episodes to showcase the wonderful Elizabeth Gracen as Amanda. Unfortunately what we have here are several episodes with few, if any, appearances by series regulars, and storylines that involve actresses at one time thought be contenders for Gracen's role in The Raven.

The Bizarre:

Fans of the underdogs celebrate! But wait! Not yet! At long last fan favorites Elizabeth Gracen and Peter Wingfield are included in the opening credits. But sadly, that's about all you will see of them until episodes 11-13 of the 13 episodes in season six! I had hoped that in the bonus material of this final season we would learn why this happened. Alas, there was no mention of this oddity. There was also no mention about what led to Elizabeth Gracen being cast as The Raven and why they wasted all the mid-season episodes on guest stars. Perhaps that will be explained in The Raven on DVD?
