Everyone's Waiting

i watched the last episode of Six Feet Under tonight--left me feeling sad and complete and empty. Death was always a "character" in the show, and here we weren't left any pretensions that our characters escape the fate that awaits us all. It was beautiful to see everyone's final moments. What an idea for a finale. If you're a fan, and you want more---go to the HBO website, they have some neat stuff, including some "inside the script" things that are pretty cool, and the obits for the characters.


  1. Man, did I weep during that episode. I was a blubbering idiot. But I didn't cry a fraction as much as I did in the ultimate grief episode, the one after Nate dies. SFU did grief even better than they did death.

    I just noticed they have every episode at the Torrance Public Library; I may have to watch it all over again someday.

  2. Yeah--we actually thought that was the last episode until I got online and saw that there were three after that one!

  3. That episode still lives with me. The song, "Breathe Me" by Sia that they use in that last sequence became my song was my song for Lent last year. I still grieve that show...
