A Classic Dark Comedy Before It's Time!, 25 August 2007
Author: hairytp4me from Lancaster County, PA, USA

This show was a precursor to "Six Feet Under" and never really got it's due. Honestly, our world wasn't quite ready to laugh at death and the funeral industry in 1990, and those of us that did couldn't keep this show from dying...pun intended. Howie Mendell was cast perfectly as the 'intruder' to the family business. And how I've remembered his line, "I'm going to put the FUN back in FUNERAL". Gosh, aren't we all trying to do that today with all the videos, photos, music, displays and other gimmicks used at viewings and visitation? If anyone reading this knows how to purchase this series on DVD, I'd love to find out how! I can remember true belly laughs watching several episodes.
