Wow. Over the past few weeks I've been watching all five season of Six Feet Under. (In order, obviously!)

S1 & S2 are just awesome, and then there's a slight dip in S3 & S4, but by that point I was so invested in the characters that I had a good time anyway. But S5 is just amazing, and the final three episodes had me crying. A lot.

If you've never seen the show and you wouldn't mind a nice meaty marathon, consider adding all five seasons to your Netflix queue. It's only about 13 episodes a season, so you'll be able to get through it with little trouble. And it's really worth it.

If HBO weren't so ridiculous on their DVD pricing, I'd consider buying the whole series.

You may have convinced me.

I have seen the first two seasons, but I didn't bother with the rest. I had heard it wasn't worth it. But I keep seeing that actors I love were in it. Based on that and your recommendation, I may have to check it out.

I'll second Scott's recommendation. It's a good show all the way through (ups and downs, sure, like everything) -- but that Season 5. Wow. Especially, like Scott said, the last few episodes. The finale is probably the best series finale I've ever seen.

Season 1 is terrific. Season 2 is one of the most satisfying seasons of television I've ever seen which makes Season 3 all the more disappointing.

It begins rebounding in Season 4 and gets back on track for its conclusion in Season 5.

May not rank as my favorite finale ever. But the final 5 minutes is absolutely one of the best conclusions I've ever seen to a series. That song from Sia - amazing!

When the finale aired last year, I wrote about my deep love for this show on these very forums, right over here

Ooh. I'll definitely read through that when I have a few solid minutes to give it the concentration it deserveth.
