I’ll Be Home For Christmas (Six Feet Under)
There is no intention here to bring the festive mood down, but as bleak as it often was, Six Feet Under was an excellent TV drama. Let’s go back to the very beginning, when the Fischer dad Nathaniel, and head of the family funeral service, does not quite make it home for Christmas. Nor does he show up at the airport to pick up his son, also called Nathaniel. That pilot had quite the impact (excuse the pun), but certainly set the mark for some of the most compelling, morbid drama in the last few decades. Drive safe, and merry Christmas.
