"My So-Called Life" is a realistic mid-nineties teen drama series that takes a look at a 15 year-old girl and her trials and tribulations with being a teenager and dealing with friends, guys, parents and school.
Michael John Piper finally passes away, depressed and delirious, after a long battle with cancer, and his "psychic" widow sticks around Fisher & Sons to discuss his funeral arrangements with him. She also predicts that one of the brothers will have a child, and perplexedly tells Nate she doesn't sense Nathaniel - though only because the funeral home is crowded so not everyone can be sensed. Nate is also baffled by Brenda's so-called ebb in sexual activity, especially when learning even Rico, with a family of four, has an extremely strong pattern of one. He does get some good news, though - at his first funeral-directors' meeting he enthusiastically declares war on Kroehner's and is well-received by all present. Ruth begins attending The Plan seminar when Robbie invites her, and alternates between resisting their hate-the-world policy and taking a hard look at her actual family relationships, meaning she mostly insults her kids. Claire soon has more to worry about than cutting remarks,... Written by

I joined "The Plan".
Isn't that like a cult or something?
No, it's one of those '70s self-discovery clubs that yell at you and don't let you go to the bathroom for 12 hours, right?

I think this will do. All right, I'm leaving you without dinner. I'll be back really late.
This whole concept of Mom self-actualizing is making me nauseous.
You're sure it's that and not the concept of Mom pissing in a plastic jar?

When Michael John Piper dies of cancer, his psychic widow goes to the Fisher's and discusses details of the funeral service with Nate, David and her dead husband. Ruth is dragged by Robbie to a seminar called "The Plan" for recovering her self-esteem but she has a bad reaction. Brenda is not in a mood for sex, and Nate becomes curious with the sexual life of his acquaintances and friends. Claire is questioned by the police in school about Gabe, and later she meets him. When Gabe shots a driver while stopped in a traffic light, she leaves him and discloses the truth to Nate, David and Keith and is advised to go to the police.
"The Plan" is the best episode up to now of the Second Season of "Six Feet Under", with many inner feelings being disclosed: the insecurity of Ruth; the love of Claire versus her duty of honest citizen; the early absence of sex desire in the relationship of Brenda and Nate. I find this episode full of feelings. My vote is ten.
