i think six feet under is best when it allows its characters to feel a realistic blend of happiness and despair. last night's episode, while remaining character driven (thank you!) once again dipped its toes into the deep end of melodrama. and perhaps the metaphor of the bird in the house was intended to show us how these people deal with happiness, or beauty: they're just not comfortable with it. god knows i can relate to that. i'd love to see these people actually learn

don't get me wrong. it's still the best show on tv.
