Simply The Best
24 July 2006 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

So sad that the best television in years is now over. But what an ending.

In recent years American television has produced two masterpieces "Angels In America" and "Six Feet Under" both HBO productions. Well done HBO.

From Episode 1 to this last chapter every part an experience and a joy to watch. Why can't more producers, both TV and Film, learn from this production? Maybe then more people would pay attention to their products.

The sublime acting of Frances Conroy has been a joy throughout, why that woman does not have 5 Emmys (One for each season) is a mystery to me.

All of the cast has produced a wonderful and believable portrayals of real people living real lives. A credit to them, the writers and directors. Even their encounters with the dead, totally believable, who hasn't wanted to reconcile with the ghosts in their lives as the characters in this show have done? Again a sublime series. So sad to see the end, but what a superb way to end it making me question my own mortality. Truly moving.
