Saw the latest Six Feet Under and was emotionally disturbed by it, which I'm starting to think is the sign of good TV. Kind of like the Nip/Tuck finale last season, I kept hearing the final song and seeing the final scene in my head for a week or so afterward. TV shows are really starting to tap into life's brutality and while that kind of creeps me I'm very drawn to it, like when I saw Vanilla Sky and I was so freaked out that I had to watch it a couple more times just to get past how disturbed I was. Same with Blackhawk Down but in a different way.
Now HBO has Rome coming up in a month or so, and I'm sure it will be as ghastly and gut-wrenching as anything they've aired before. Maybe more so. I'm kind of excited about it but dreading it as well.
Then again, with a baby due around Thanksgiving I may not see television for decades, other than the Teletubbies and such. Maybe that's best . . .
