Six Feet Underwhelmed About the Return of Network TelevisionI'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.
