In the middle of the episode, during the final broadcast, writer Phil is seen surreptitiously sneaking the letter "Y" from the large sculpted letters "LARRY" off the right side of the stage. After Larry finishes his final speech at the end of the broadcast, we see the whole stage from Artie's position at the left of the stage, with all 5 letters still there. See more »

S6: A bit darker in tone but still funny and drawing it all to a satisfying ending
21 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember starting the first season or so of Larry Sanders and not really seeing the great show that others claimed to. The show has consistently gotten better from that point and, while the final season is not the high point of the lot of them, it is still a very satisfying and enjoyable season. The plots are generally centered around the show coming to an end and the reasons for this, with various characters having threads leading off of this. As such it perhaps has a bit of a darker edge to the humor, and is a bit less sparky and fun as a result, but it is not a dramatic shift by any means.

The key thing is that it remains funny and there are frequently good laughs throughout, although the tone of the show tends to give it that edge somewhat. This is seen in particular in Hank, where his clownishness is a bit more tragic in some ways in this season in particular. The spread of material throughout the supporting characters is not always successful, and not all of the narrative threads are as engaging or as funny as others, with one or maybe two episodes not working quite as well as the others because of this. Outside of this there is a certain amount of business as usual, with Larry stressing about guests, his image, and so on.

I think I prefer some of the previous seasons to this one, but the difference is not so significant. Ultimately this is a solidly good final season which keeps itself together right to the final scene, where it goes out with a delicate touch which is true to the characters and is enjoyable in how low-key it is.
