Anyone watch Breaking Bad? Just finished the first season and I'm really enjoying it! I hear the second season is much better too!

Anyone here ever watch Six Feet Under? I think it is my favourite show I have ever watched. Let me know your opinions if you have seen it.

I am about halfway through season 2 of that. I really like it, although it plays on my anxieties/fears of death (I am worried there will be an episode that shows someone dying in the first 5 minutes in a way that I fear, and I will get super freaked out over it. So I start each episode feeling a little worried). Plus Nathan's brain thing is also something that scares me, so I have a hard time watching that. My progress has slowed recently because of all this. But it's really good.

I watched bits and pieces of Six Feet Under before I became aware of American dramas. I remember some good things about it.

Several years later, my friend lends me this film called Towelhead and tells me how amazing it is. I watch it, think it's quite crap, then later discover that it's by the same creator of Six Feet Under. Damn! So I'm not in a hurry to watch it any more.

I haven't seen Towelhead but Six Feet Under is one of the best dramas you'll find. Closer to his other work American Beauty than Towelhead I imagine (just assuming having not seen Towelhead). Six Feet Under also has probably the best ending to a TV show I've ever seen.

This.

Frecklegirl, I'm sorry that it plays on your anxieties, but you really should continue. I know it might be scary in that it makes you face death, and I don't really know what your fears are or what motivates them and that isn't my business, but speaking from my experience it helped me with the fact of death. It helped me come to terms with it. If it is the way you go that scares you, then I totally get that. I get pretty scared with things and I think of allll of the what-if's of them. Still, the show helped me come to terms with it.

In about three weeks my favorite show will die. Thanks, ABC!

Ugly Betty isn't perfect, (except for most of the clothes, set designs, performers and portions of the scripts), but it was the only show where I really cared about the characters. Lost is exceptionally clever, and I enjoy it, but I doubt that anyone will ever describe it as endearing.

It was a good episode last night. Since it roughly follows the soap opera formula, I saw a few things coming, like Betty being hurt by the playwright's behavior and Justin seeing the backstage kiss, but some of the later twists were unexpected enough to make it a good watch.

I wonder how things will turn out. In the original, Betty marries Daniel, but it will be hard to cram that in by April 14th. Still hope that they try, or at least figure out some way that Betty can live happily ever after.
