Six Feet Under

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 28, 2003

When we moved to NYC, we traded in our Netflix subscription for HBO and started watching Six Feet Under at the beginning of its third season. I liked the show right away, not only because the writing and acting are so good, but also because it made me uncomfortable (in a good way). I couldn't quite figure out the reason for that discomfort until last night's show. It's the tension between the public and private, introverted and extroverted, the quiet and loud...and it's so well done. Watching the characters who vent their energy by yelling or crying interact with those that keep their problems more hidden is fascinating and is rarely seen on TV or even in the movies. Great stuff.
