Six Degrees (2006–2008)
User ReviewsReview this title
Great cast all around, but really enjoyed the work of Campbell Scott (the come-back photog) and Hope Davis (recent widow of journalist killed in Iraq).
Aside from the acting, the writing was fresh and the acting superb. The show was also shot in NYC, the real city, not the Warner Bros. or some other studio's backlot, adding a secondary layer or realism.
I guess people are more interested in the latest "Survivor" and other reality garbage. Too bad it didn't last.
When I first heard of this show, it didn't caught my attention at all. It seemed too ordinary, actually. Then, i saw some episodes... and loved it! First of all, the characters. They are all well-written and different from each other. There's a alcohol addicted, a woman whose fiancée cheats on her, a woman who just lost her husband, a driver who has a troubled brother and so on... Unlike what we're used to, most of the characters interact with each other in casualties, like in our daily routines. Great! My favourite ones are Mae, Carlos and Whitney.
Then, the cast. They are all great. Jay Hernandez, from "Hostel", shows here his acting habilities in a more 3d character than his previous work as Paxton. The other ones give great performances too, specially Campbell Scott, who plays Steven and Bridget Moynahan, who plays Whitney.
Well when i came to IMDb, after watching some episodes, i couldn't believe that it got cancelled. Seriously, i can't understand the low ratings.
It's too bad it didn't have more than one season. It would really be a good show to follow!
The show centers around a couple of New Yorkers, plays around with the concept of the six degrees of separation and cleverly intertwines their lives. Bridget Moynahan and Jay Hernandez are stunning and so is the adorable Caseman. The scenery is amazing and wardrobes are exquisite.
We need more shows like this that makes viewers feel like they are intelligent individuals not mindless drones.
If it never comes back, six degrees will be sorely missed.
So I went to ABC.com and to my surprise found the whole season of six degrees, for gratis. I watched the first episode and got really addicted. I was really surprised to learn that the show wasn't renewed for a second season, but was stunned to discover that in fact it didn't even make it to episode three! So if you are a fan and want to find out how everyone is connected to everyone else just go to ABC.com and launch the player.
