Anyone Want to Go Six Feet Under?

Lately I've been thinking that I'd like to rewatch the Six Feet Under series. I was surprised to find that it isn't in the FanFare database. Would anyone else like to watch it and discuss each episode in FanFare as we proceed? And if you do, I was thinking I might post one episode thread a day for the entire 63-episode run. Is that a comfortable pace for you?

I'm not going to keep up with one episode a day, but I might be interested in watching! Is it only available on HBO now?

(I watched the first season or two on DVD with a friend of mine who grew up in a family of funeral directors, and most of my memories involve her commentary on how realistic various scenarios were)

Would every other day work? Or two or three given days a week? I don't want to go too fast and have people give up because they can't keep up with the conversation, but I'd like to establish some sort of set posting schedule so that people know what to expect and plan around.

Don't know where it's available, I'm afraid. I happen to have this one on DVD.

I also have the DVDs, though I've never watched them all the way through. I just hoard it, like a particularly valuable treasure. I'd like this a lot, but I don't think I could keep up with one a day.

Looks like it's streaming on Amazon Prime for members, in addition to HBO. So there are a couple of options, at least.

Yep I am ready to revisit an hbo show that ended well.

I think two a week would be a good pace? That's similar to what the Star Trek rewatches end on, and mean that the rewatch wouldn't take over a year.

Plus, at two a week it means it's feasible to catch up if one has a busy week or something. More than that, it gets kind of difficult.

Okay, two episodes it is. And I think I'll post them on Saturday and Wednesday nights... starting tonight. If I can get it added to the show list by then, that is. I've submitted the request at least. If it doesn't get approved it can wait until Wednesday, which will maybe let a few more people see this thread.

The first thread is up. Grab your shovels and dig in, everyone!

I have the DVDs (which are such an awesome box that I also hoard them as a treasure), but I've already watched it twice and I think it would rip my heart out to watch it again, so I'll opt out - but enjoy! It's a brilliant show.
