2nd Season - Keeps on Rocking

  • Jul 19, 2004
Pros: Drama, direction, characters

Cons: not long enough!

The Bottom Line: Such a powerful show. I really do recommend this for thinking adults who want to go outside the norm for a fulfilling drama.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot.

The highly anticipated 2nd season HBO Drama Six Feet Under is just as jam packed with fun, angst, and knock your socks off emotions that it is my favorite drama.

SFU far surpasses anything you will find on regular TV. Join in to watch the latest in the Diaz-Fischer Funeral Home. This season is taking aim at emotional issues. The framework is the same, each episode begins with a death nd then how it touches the lives of those at the funeral home.

This series is 13 episodes and is darker than the first season. As we already know the basics of the business and the characters, this season delves into the psyche of each individual. Will Nate & Brenda settle down? What about David & Keith they get back together (for now)? Follow with Claire as she tries to make meaning of her life and stay true to her art school soul. Spend the evening with Ruth, the long suffering mother of the family as she grows disillusioned and more isolated.

Never a dull moment with main characters or supporting ones either. The addition of Keith's neice was a nice foray into the realities of a gay family. All are fully developed characters that have grown more interesting and complicated as the season progresses. I am so relieved that they have some talented and inspired writers for this show.

Season 2 also focuses the camera on the sidecast of the series. Rico and his family issues with this wife, children and sister in law. Brenda's trippy parents and Brenda's new prostitute friend do stir a certain storm in the character's life.

The second season extends the crisis points plotted in the first season - Keith and David's love crisis, Nate's health problems, Brenda's addiction to wild anonymous sex, Ruth's incompetence and helplessness and Claire's growing cynicism and involvement with art school and the quirks associated with artists.

Well written, well directed, excellent casting.

Sunday nights are an HBO night with Soprano's, Deadwoood and SFU.
