5.0 out of 5 stars
absolutely fantastic, 3 Sept. 2006
If you haven't watched six feet under, i'm jealous. You've got it all to look forward to. I've just watched the final episode and it was probably the best peice of television i've ever seen. I just can't get it out of my head. Dark, moving, amusing and with excellent characterisation and acting throughout, the series has the ability to leave an indelible inprint on you. The closest way to describe it is American Beauty, but over a five year period. Following the turbelent lives of sharply drawn characters with a dark realism, which is always unafraid to challenge the viewer.
This brave writing possibly resulted in its criminal late night schelduling on Channel 4 (UK), which means that the series has not recieved anything approaching the exposure it deserves. I've never written a review of anything before, but in this insance i felt it would be remiss of me to do otherwise.
