Six feet over

Last week I waxed ever so needlessly about my incessant need for bad television.

Well, I now take my hat off to one of the greatest shows ever ... since it is coming to its proverbial end tonight:

Six Feet Under

When I started watching four years ago, I never imagined that I could get hooked on a show set around a family-run funeral home.

I was quite mistaken.

First, the death scenes at the top of each hour were worth watching alone.

And not only was I captured by the range the actors continued to display week after week ...

... but never in my short lifetime has there been a show in which at the end of every single episode, I felt like I needed a shower.

And that is a true testament to just how, as series creator Alan Ball liked to put it, "f*cked up" Six Feet Under truly was.

A show in which I'll feel the effects of utter withdrawal once it concludes.

Man, will I miss it ...

... may it rest in peace.

Don't know if you ever caught the HBO series "OZ" but I miss the hell out of that one! If I could only watch one show for the rest of my life, that would be the one.

The ending was stupendous... all those flashes to future funerals provided an extraordinary finale. Also, a bit freaky!

Enjoying your blog - funny as s...t. If you liked Six Feet Under (great show), you might get a chuckle out of Weeds. Rescue Me on FX is also interesting.
