I am currently viewing Season 6 of Ballykissangel after having watched the first 5 seasons on DVD over the past few months. Although there were many changes to the cast throughout the 5 seasons, there always seemed to be a central core that kept it glued together. Indeed it was this constant that made BallyK what it was--surely one of the best TV shows on either side of the pond. I really enjoyed spending my evenings with these wonderful folks from a country and culture far from my own. From reading the reviews here I see that the actor who played Brian Quigly passed away shortly after season 5 concluded. I didn't know that as it was never mentioned in Season 6. I thought that like the others who left before him, he merely went on to other pursuits (more money, etc.) The show also failed to note the passing during season 5 of the wonderful Birdy Sweeny who played the farmer Eamonn. I came to love that old geiser. It would have been nice to give him a nod when he passed.
I am so disappointed with the writing and newer characters this season. If it weren't for Liam and Donal I would think it was a different show. Not just that the characters are different, but the writing seems to have lost the spark that made this show special. Even a new, handsome Aussie priest couldn't help it. That's probably why there are only 8 episodes to Season 6. Like an old, sick horse, someone did the humane thing and put it out of it's misery.
I belatedly mourn the passing of Tony Doyle and Birdy Sweeny and the death of a great piece of television history. But I am so grateful I found it and was able to enjoy it's wonderful 5 year run.

Even though I like the Robert Taylor, he can't save this season. The show keeps losing main characters without satisfying explanation. I don't like the new pub owner family, they're annoying. And the ending was too open-ended. I suppose it left it general for another season but just as well the series ended. Season 5 & 6 were kind of bland and sillier. I didn't really care about any of the characters anymore. Plus, the revolving door of priests was getting old.

I had no plans to watch season 6 after the end of season 5. I was very tired of the antics of Donnal and Liam which seemed to be more and more of each program. I also cringed every time Uncle Minto made an appearance. I knew that many of the characters were just going to disappear without any kind of acknowledgement and felt that the wedding at the end of Season 5 would make good break with the series.

In the end I'm very happy that I decided to watch season 6 as I enjoyed it very much. The new curate, Father Vincent is a great character. Unlike his predecessors , Peter and Aidan, he is not intimidated by Father Mac and won't be bullied by the older priest. He even stands up to the bishop who is far worse that Father Mac. Father Vincent has his shortcomings, which makes him believable, but he is a good central character for the show.

They did a good job of giving the Brian Quigley character a sendoff, in spite of the death of actor Tony Doyle. This was an improvement over the way the Eamonn character was quickly written out of the show when actor Birdy Sweeney passed away.

Some new characters, especially Avril, are interesting and add to the series. On the other had, Louie, who speaks with an unintelligible accent, even Brendan can't understand him, is very annoying.

There is no "final episode" which happens in many other series. Former cast members do not make one final appearance nor do dead characters appear in people's dreams. The last scene, which takes place in Fitzgerald's, was a perfect way to end the series. It was as if there are more stories to be told.

What sort of person are you? Do you relish variety or prefer the TV shows, musical artists, actresses you like to be recognizably the same over their runs, careers? The answer to that will determine whether you relish the changes introduced for series six of Ballykissangel, as the following exit the show: Sean Dillon (Lorcan Cranitch), Emma Dillon (Kate McEnery), Father Aidan O'Connell (Don Wycherley), Orla O'Connell (Victoria Smurfit), Danny Byrne (Colin Farrell), and Brian Quigley (Tony Doyle) who, arguably, was the franchise character and driving force of the entire show. Mr. Doyle passed away in January of 2000, just after the last episode of the fifth year of BallyK was broadcast (in December of 1999). There were no more episodes of BallyK until the spring of 2001 at which time series six (the first of 8 episodes) began to be broadcast. Item one of this final year thus was explaining the absence of Brian Quigley, dealing with that and then trying to move on without this central character. Of course, it's still BallyK and a welcoming program to watch, but at one and the same time, not the same anymore without the fulcrum (raison d'Ítre even), of the whole program.
