We don\’t have any cable movie channels, so my wife and I spend a lot of time going back and watching HBO shows on DVD. I still haven\’t ever seen a single episode of the Sopranos, and I don\’t really feel like I\’m missing a whole lot.
My wife and I had heard good things about Six Feet Under, so we started watching the first season this week. And I have to say – I\’m pretty close to giving up after the first three episodes. Who wants to watch a bunch of unlikeable whiners yell at each other hour after hour? The whole juxtaposition of those peoples\’ lives against a new dead person every week is just too easy of a plot device. And any show that relies heavily on people having childhood flashbacks and talking to dead people is just being lazy. I feel strongly about this.
That being said, if anyone who watches the show can talk me into sticking with it, I\’m all ears.
