The Season Five DVD cover sums the show up perfectly

I could have never written Six Feet Under, but I wish I had. The picture says it all- this was a show about grief, about endings. How on earth do you write a show about that? I have no idea how they did it, but they did, and what they made was stunning. It was so good, so true, so real, that I could barely stand it. That’s how good it was. Never in a million years could I tackle this topic. I just don’t have it in me. It was too powerful, too moving, and I could seldom sit through an episode. Emotionally, it was just too much, and it’s the first show I could ever say that about.  It’s an absolutely amazing show, and I wish I’d written it.

    An amazing show. Never has a show both entertained me so much while disturbing me so deeply.

    Scott, I totally agree. Maybe, next to M*A*S*H my all time favorite show. Own the series.
