I'll admit it -- last year I was concerned about Six Feet Under. This year, however, it's back to being this incredible, metaphysically physical show about life, and mostly death.

Yes. Six Feet Under has been intellectualized, dissected to death and praised to the stars for its superior writing and emotional depth, all rightly so. But call it what it is -- a good soap. A great one.

Phil Gallo
There's anger, manipulation and jealousy bubbling under in nearly every situation and it's a tribute to these actors that they carry it all off so thoroughly.
