anyone else dig this show?
I liked this series pretty well for the first couple of seasons, but its unrelenting bleakness kind of wore me down after awhile. I said this in the B&R thread awhile back, but that carjacking episode with David was the tipping point for me into "I don't want to watch this happen anymore" territory. But I did return for the few episodes leading up the finale, though.
Possibly the best finale to a series ever, though.
60 Second Simpsons - Ep32 - And Maggie Makes Three
oh, without a doubt, the show can just ruin your day, but sometimes it's interesting to get wrapped up in something like that. i'll admit it did get pretty heavy after season two, and the writing after that just gets so heavily criticized, but i basically loved watching the total self-destruction of nate in the middle of the series. i also loved the patience of those last few episodes of the whole thing, they really took their time and ended it right.
i would also say that rico & vanessa are just two of the worst characters on television
Six Feet Under was unbelievably great. This show had my favorite series finale ever, I don't think anything can top it. IMO, it never went downhill.

anybody else watch this yet?
I don't have anything else to add, other than that after watching this show, I will never look at James Cromwell the same way again. Everyone knows him as the "That'll do pig" guy, but now I see him as that dude who got married 6 times on Six Feet Under. I didn't remember Rainn Wilson from it, though, after seeing him in The Office. Someone had to point that out to me.
Also, Lisa was one of the most annoying character I think has ever been on TV.
I watched scattered episodes of Six Feet Under when it was being broadcast on NZ TV, and I loved it. I haven't seen all the episodes but I recently got the entire series on DVD as a gift so sometime soon I'm going to watch the show properly from start to finish. Really looking forward to it.

oh my god, @Knightboat, i'm jealous. that sounds like the best gift ever. who got it for you?
yeah, this show is boss. definitely something you need to watch from start to finish though - which never actually takes that long, because even if you watch an episode a day for the first two seasons, by the time you reach the last year, you're watching like three episodes in one sitting. or at least i am. a good friend of mine crushed the entire series in a week (off from work) and told me it was the best show he'd ever seen. however, because there's so much 'drama' in it, it can be fairly draining to watch all at once. but don't take my word for it, just give it a shot. the first episodes are almost definitely the best ones. also, a clip from 'dead putting society' is in it.
i loved rainn's character. that scene where he showed ruth his music on the computer was so awkward and lovely and beautiful.
I got them recently for Christmas from my family, including the entire series of The Sopranos and the entire Seinfeld collection on DVD. I've almost finished The Sopranos - I'm into the final episodes - so Six Feet Under is next up on the list.
EDIT: Yeah, I remember some episodes being emotionally draining but it's really worth it.
jesus christ that's a great haul. your dvd shelf must look beautiful
Nah, I started watching Boardwalk Empire and I'm about to start Breaking Bad. I need to catch up before they broadcast the last lot of episodes because I haven't seen any yet.
