Six Feet Underwhelmed About the Return of Network Television

I've only had cable a couple of years, so during the strike, curiosity got the best of me, and I finally checked out the feast that is Six Feet Under.


I loved Six Feet Under. I watched the finale almost two weeks ago, and it's still fresh on my mind. I'm not even close to giving up the Fishers yet. And by the way, what about those final 5 minutes of the show? Now that's the way you close out a series. Beautiful.

Maybe the worst thing about watching 6FU during the strike is that now I'm pretty underwhelmed about the return of network programming. Yeah, I know, I'm weak and I'll end up watching anyway.

But damn, why can't more shows be like 6FU? Why does Shondra Rhimes have two shows and Alan Ball none?

Here's a cool little factoid about Peter Krause. He saw this singer in a little club in Santa Monica, kept in touch with her, and decided to executive produce her CD when she lost her funding. What a cool guy, I love stories like this (video below).

Before I get to the videos, I wanted to say how exciting it was to feel my niece kicking in her mama's belly for the first time the other day. My sister-in-law is almost in her third trimester, and everything's going very well. Happy days in the A family.

Six Feet Under was such a great show. I miss it too.

There is nothing cooler than feeling a baby kicking away ready to pop out. Once I saw my friends baby jam his foot against her belly so hard I could make out the toes. Trippy!

I've seen a few episodes of the first season, and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I have no way of seeing it now, based on my cable package and lack of rental options.

Look forward to the baby stories!!

Ok, 6 feet under was good, but check out Deadwood and the Wire on DVD!

Yay, for 6 Feet Under!
Glad you enjoyed it. Was one of my favorites of all time from HBO.
Wonderful show.
