You can’t take a picture of this, it’s already gone

One of the hardest things is to know when it’s time to move on — a heavy thought I don’t normally glean from the tube.

This last season of Six Feet Under has been a fast paced, cram-it-all-in, drama fest. On top of that it seemed that most of the characters were going un-treated from schizophrenia, psychosis, or depression — but I still watched, religiously.

All that aside, the last episode was so f’ing good. They managed to touch upon what it means to be a family (by blood or chosen), finding closure, and how senseless (the current) war is…

In this age of reality TV, I thank HBO for raising (or is that maintaining?) the bar on entertainment. I wish it could trickle down to the dinosaur networks.

As hard as it is to let something go, the creators of this show let it end with no questions—and plenty of grace.

  1. i guess a question just planned all over…was Maggie pregnant from Nate?
    about the end, i am sure it is the most beautiful thing ever filmed

  2. I was left completely stunned.
    Beautifully done.
    No show on television is even close to being of the same caliber as Six Feet Under.
