Six Feet Under

We haven't got this in TV on regular networks in Canada until last Sunday when the first episode aired on Showcase (I assume it was on TMN though which I don't get).

I don't recall being so entirely and irrevocably impressed with a piece of television or even a movie for a very, very long time. Last night my brother bought the first season on DVD so we don't have to wait for TV schedualing to watch it.

Anyone else in these parts enjoy it?

But please watch out for spoilers as I have only seen 2 episodes of it.

Six Feet Under is my favourite show!

(I started a thread about it a few months back and not that many people responded.)

Cass, it is being aired in Australia right now. The first episdode of season three premiered last week. I believe it is Channel Nine on Monday nights but I might have to double-check on that one.

Six Feet Under is an HBO series about a family that owns and operates a funeral home in Los Angeles. Technically it's a drama but there are alot of black comedy moments as well. Someone dies in the beginning of every episode and then ends up having their wake at the funeral home. There's alot more to it than that but it's hard to explain. It's a great show. You should check it out.

totally great show

best show on tv atm

its not for the ones that get offended easily though

there is a lot of swearing, offensive gestures and the hardest bit that turns a lot of people away: the gay scenes

but yeh this is the funniest show about death ever made, but you need to have an open mind to find this show funny, alot of the comedy is plot related, nothing contrived like a sitcom at all. that being said: it IS time we got one back at death!

oh and U2 gets a reference in the second episode ever with regards to nate's then-girlfriend brenda chenowith

"so did you listen to sting and u2 when you were growing up? or like the heavy hardcore stuff?"

oh and make sure the kids are DEFINITELY in bed before you watch though! i mean its not the x-files or anything, this is genuinely stuff you DONT want your kids to be exposed to, unless you want them warped

Something from America that "Old Europe" and "New Europe" can agree on.

We're only on season three over here...no chance we'll see the next season until about this time next year.

It always cracks me up to see some of the right-wing press moaning about SFU. It's always the fact that it has gay characters that pisses them off the most. It's just like with This Life (tv show we had in the UK about six years ago) - they hated it showing drugs, swearing, nudity, etc, but it wasn't until they *gasp* showed a gay sex scene that they started accusing it of polluting the minds of our youth or some such crap.

Anyway. Six Feet Under is awesome and other good things and I'm going to stop my little rant about the conservative press before this thread gets booted to FYM.
