At this rate, Ball is lucky his HBO colleague David Milch has snagged the phrase "Deadwood," or I'd be suggesting it as "Six Feet Under"'s new alternate title.
It's unsurprising many viewers felt abused, and taken for a ride. But there's something thrilling, too, about creators willing to jeopardize their unspoken contract with their audience: to risk our loyalty in the name of something new.
I love that when Nate and David are driving to get Lisa's body, Nate-even in his severely depressed state-still does the big-brother thing of teasing David about his boyfriend.
At some point, however -- and that point is the first episode in this fourth season -- it all becomes too much, too arch, too ridiculous and trying and forced.
Too often, the writers take the easy choice and rely on a curious mix of sex and depression... It still has its moments and some great acting, but these days too often it plays just like a "normal" soap opera.
The characters of Six Feet Under seem to have absorbed the funereal atmosphere of their surroundings all too well, and they and the story are sinking together into a perpetually glum morass.
Season Four forges on, sure-footedly, in the virtuoso standard the series set way back in season one.
Audience Reviews for Six Feet Under: Season 4
Oct 03, 2015Season 4 continues from the happy ending of season 3 with a lot of misery. I am glad the Lisa mystery is finally resolved, David overcame his fear and Claire discovered her talent, while Ruth deals with an increasingly unstable George.Sylvester K Super Reviewer
