Six Feet Over and Out

We don't have any cable movie channels, so my wife and I spend a lot of time going back and watching HBO shows on DVD. I still haven't ever seen a single episode of the Sopranos, and I don't really feel like I'm missing a whole lot.

My wife and I had heard good things about Six Feet Under, so we started watching the first season this week. And I have to say - I'm pretty close to giving up after the first three episodes. Who wants to watch a bunch of unlikeable whiners yell at each other hour after hour? The whole juxtaposition of those peoples' lives against a new dead person every week is just too easy of a plot device. And any show that relies heavily on people having childhood flashbacks and talking to dead people is just being lazy. I feel strongly about this.

That being said, if anyone who watches the show can talk me into sticking with it, I'm all ears.
