I am dissappointed with myself, for some strange reason, if I find that I don't like a show I was hoping to. A good example of this is 'Six Feet Under'. I was intriguied by the concept of a show set in a funeral home, dealing with those people's lives and how they cope in that industry. I watched a number of early eps (when Buffy wasn't on). Loved the opening with a new death every week, and the opening credits are great. Two things that should get me to hang around for the rest of the show.
For a reason I can't determine the show didn't click for me. I don't know whether it was the characters, who are all layered and interesting; or the style of language, with frequent strong words; or the style, with visually interesting cinematography. It may be all or none.
After I sat through the Emmy's earlier this week I gave Six Feet Under another go. Stumped was I when Michelle Tractenberg walked into frame!
I liked the characters, the look and even the language wasn't badly colourful. Yet, I still didn't want to keep watching. I thought, maybe it was that I wasn't able get into it because I don't know the characters histories, but the relationships weren't difficult to gather. There has to be some reason but I can't fathom what it is.
I admit defeat and file this show as "watch if it's there" but I won't be searching for it weekly.
