Six Feet Under appreciation thread

People who are with me on this, gather 'round! Great acting, beautifully written characters, not as much sugarcoating as other shows. (I think it's easier on HBO..lol) Funny too. Quite dark..

Ooooh, finally someone with a good taste in tv shows! I absolutely adore (as much as you can adore something fictional) Six Feet Under and my week is ruined if I miss an episode... not that it'd happen a lot as it's nearly impossible to forget something so great!

So nice to meet a fellow Finn here!! Must be the "darkness" of the show that appeals to us...and the very odd, nearly Finnish sense of humour!

Oh and I'm from Savonlinna, not that far from you!

I too think it's the best drama on TV...I'm so sad it's all over!

Hello, I think I love you!

SFU is my favourite show EVER! I'm so sad that it's all over here in the US but I still watch reruns.

You're on the fourth season in Finland. Lucky, you have one more season of new (for you) episodes to enjoy.

It's truly one of the finest drama series ever aired on TV. I think it ended as well as it could, it's just that no one wanted it to!

Love the show, “black humor” at it’s best…...sorry to see it ending (ah death happens to all).

No

Should be soon, but we are heading into the non-ratings TV period.

the episode All Alone from season 5 is one of the saddest hours of television imagineable

it was just depression therapy at its finest: the acting, as opposed to the remainder of the show there was no humour in that hour, and the musical score was just perfect

I read the last post to the "the saddest hour" thing or something because I'm scared of spoilers

I had to dig waaaaay back to find this.

I rented the final season a week ago and watched the entire thing over two days (no HBO ). I started crying about 20 minutes or so into the finale, and by the time it was over, this had turned into full-on sobbing. I've been attached to tv shows in the past, but I don't ever remember being this affected by one. It's a week later and I'm still moved by it. So fucking sad, happy and beautiful, all at the same time. I won't say any more, in case people from other countries haven't seen it yet, but WOW. Best series finale EVER.

I'll miss you, you crazy Fisher family.

I'm going to watch it again, with commentary today. Bless Blockbuster and their liberal late return rules. I get to keep it for another three weeks.
