The final episode of Six Feet Under aired last week, but we just saw it last night. I have to say that it was one of the best final episodes of any TV series that I can remember (M*A*S*H is the best as far as I’m concerned).
HBO has a page devoted to the final episode in which obituaries are written for all of the major characters, a touching addition that fleshes out the last moments of the episode.
I saved reading a post by Steven Johnston until I had seen the episode, and I definitely agree with one of his statements:
I had a genuine feeling last night watching the finale that I was going to miss these people, which I can honestly say I’ve never had with a television show before. I suspect I’m not alone in feeling that way.
