We finally finished the last season of Six Feet Under (I know, we are horribly behind the times). I’m speechless. Well, almost. It was an excellent series (with a few bumps along the way), but the last season was amazing. The finale was the best thing I’ve ever seen on television – seriously (yes, I’m including the final episode of MASH). The image of Nate falling behind in Claire’s rear-view mirror was stunning and the montage that followed blew me away – what a brilliant way to end the series. I was too choked up to speak for several minutes when it ended (and the same thing happened the next night when we watched that scene again).
I love how the show confronted death bravely and realistically and reminded us how important it is to live in the moment. The acting, writing and directing were incredible. If we ever have a son, we’re naming him Nate (and a daughter? Maya, of course).
Farewell, Six Feet Under. I will miss you. You’ll live on in my memories (and in the box set I’m asking for Christmas next year).
Any other Six Feet Under fans out there? What did you think of the finale?
