6ft under

when six feet under was on, i only caught the odd episode. it was on at an awkward time, on a difficult day. i really liked what i saw, though, and read good things about it. so i decided to imbibe the other day when i saw the first series in the vid shop.

we could only get it on three day loan, and that seemed cool. til we got the dvds out and realised that's 4 dvds, with 13 episodes. 13 hours of 6ft under. we managed to watch the first two and a bit discs.
then we took it back.
then we got it out again.
we were watching obsessively. we couldn't help it. The Squeeze was making me stay up til ridiculous hours watching it. we loved it. we laughed, we cried, we cringed.

i really really love it. gay characters who stick around, full frontal nudity, dry, black humour, red heads, top soundtrack. it had it all. it's a bit dark though. felt a bit wrist-slashy coming out the other side of our 6 nights of viewing.

but goddamn it's a good series. check out the website. i've only seen a couple of the second season's episodes, so i'm not going to explore the spoilers just yet. i'm looking forward to being depressed in bingetime when the dvd comes out.

The Squeeze has never seen Twin Peaks. i think it's time we got into that mammoth viewing adventure. though he's not struck on lynch's films...
i, however, adore the man. love him. love the way he uses sound. love the whole surrealist thing he's got going on.

right now i'm balancing all that darkness with some fluff - hoo-rah for notting hill.
