Give Away

Sometimes, I feel like I may be giving Brian a bad rap. Yes, he loves to torture me with his bossiness and his one liners, but it’s not like he goes about unscathed. I do a little torture myself.
One moment in particular comes to mind, mainly because it is mean to give away plotlines, but I felt I had to. As you know, Brian and I watch TV shows on DVD rather than on TV. One series we have been hooked on is Six Feet Under. We have seen every season up until this last and final season. We’re still waiting for it to be released.

One Saturday morning I was reading the paper. Okay, I was reading the entertainment section of the paper when I came across an article critiquing the series finale of Six Feet Under. I decided to read it because, really, how much could they possibly give away? Well, apparently it’s a lot because I was so upset with myself after reading the article. (If I give anything away to you now, well that really isn’t my problem. I’m about to write a major plot twist, or at least what I believe to be a major twist, of this series. Read at your own risk.) So, what I read is one of the main characters, Nate, had died a few episodes before. Well, since we hadn’t been watching any of the final season, I did not know he died. Now I know he dies and I’m freaking pissed. Why does he die? Well, the season we’re watching he has a brain tumor, or something equally horrible. Does he die from his tumor? I don’t know.

I decide I won’t tell Brian what I read. That would just be cruel. I keep it to myself and we continue to watch Season 3. (Season 5 is the final series.) After watching the end of Season 3, which ends with him going into brain surgery, I can keep this secret no longer. I need to talk about it. How does he die? There’s a whole season before he kicks it, so it can’t be from the surgery. I tell him that Nate dies and boy is he mad at me. Asking why I had to go and tell him and why would I do something so horrible. Well, I just don’t think it’s fair that I know and he doesn’t. I didn’t want to read it, just like he didn’t want me to tell him.

The only thing I know at this point is that he doesn’t die from the tumor. I guess the surgery was a great success, a miracle if you will, and the tumor is completely gone. I have no idea how he dies and now I have to wait until Season 5 is released. Rude!

Anyway, we’re hoping Season 5 is going to be good because Seasons 3 and 4 were just okay. Nothing like the first two, which were so good we would watch three or four shows in a row.

  • I agree, Nate is a hottie! You better not spoil it though. As much as I would love to know and it's killing me, I really don't want to know. Especially since Brian would be so mad at me because you know I would have to tell him. :)

  • NEVER even seen one episode of it. Am I missing something wonderful?

  • You could be. It's very good. I think you'd like it.

  • I've seen a few episodes, but I never got hooked on it. I do remember the controversy over the finale though. Bummer.

  • Dang maybe I need to wake up to the real world here. I really don't remember the last TV show I watched.

  • Naw, I think I watch too much TV. But in my defense I don't watch nearly this much when the weather is nice.

  • I have seen season one and that's about it. The friend I was borrowing it from didn't buy the others. heh. But then she watched them and said that it only gets more depressing.

    Sucks that they gave it away though. They should put warnings on articles like that!!

  • A warning might have been nice. They're a little depressing I suppose, but they do work at a funeral home. Sometimes they're pretty funny considering.
