That Post Cry Exhaustion

Yesterday, I finished re-watching the tv series Six Feet Under.

I won't give away any spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen it and might still want to, but man oh man, those last few episodes.  And while I remember being absolutely gutted by the series finale the first time I watched it, I had the same experience last night when I got to that end of the show episode.

The show, in general, talks about death as it's based in a funeral home and the family that runs it.  It's not a depressing show exactly, for such a potentially heavy topic, but it does make you think and remember that we all die.

I generally stay away from popular topics here and on social media but there has been a lot of death in our public awareness these last few weeks.  And it's been hard.  And sad.  And interesting.

But I'm not intending to talk about mortality or anything, just to say how draining it is when you have that deep seated kind of a release from crying.  And I would say it's the sign of a good show... writing....acting...directing...all of it, to have that kind of an impact.

I enjoyed that show too, but never made it to the end. I may have to watch the last couple of seasons now.

It's been a very tough start to 2016 (and end of 2015) with so many talented people being taken. Whatever you believe, there is quite the choir/band/ensemble somewhere in the afterlife. Sadly, with the age of the famous rockers I grew up listening to, this is going to be happening more and more.

I also recently re-watched the final episode and had the exact same reaction as the first. Best finale of a series EVER.

I never saw Six Feet Under - which is odd, because it was HUGE over here.

I like it Jonathan (clearly), I'm sure you can find it through entirely legal means online (ahem, winkwinkifyouknowwhatimsaying) Starting to feel a bit dated as each episode is time-stamped so to speak.
