My cable provider has included the show Six Feet Under as part of our Free On Demand television choices and I have enjoyed watching this show again. I watched it when it was on originally and always found it to be a little disturbing in a good way.
Six Feet Under did make me consider death in a more practical way such as what happens with your body when you die. I have children and I admit the episode about the baby dying from SIDS was especially tough to watch and I cried during the show. However, I appreciated how Enrique dealt with that sad situation with his wife pregnant and due to deliver soon.
One thing I always found great about the show was that even if a character passed away they still had a role. The patriarch of the family Nathaniel is killed in a car accident in the very first episode and he was a large part of the show throughout the entire series and was even in the finale. His family would see him and talk to him, not in a supernatural way, it was more like they were dreaming about him, but still he remained on the show.
I use Free On Demand often and watch this show on mydirect tv. It helps me to relax after a long day.
