Holy shit!! Whew!! I just watched the Six Feet Under series finale. I’m probably still red eyed while typing this. I hope to not think too much of the finale and get crying again.
Maybe because it’s been a long two weeks (Who am I kidding? More like two months) and I’m tired and blah already but I feel like an emotional wreck. Really this has been one of my favorite series, but not for the faint of heart..you’ve got love, humor, sadness, etc.
No Spoilers! I won’t give away any specifics..I will let you go through this yourself, but be prepared.
Finales are painful usually for me..I hate seeing a show end, but this one was so much worse. It didn’t end in a horrible way, but it was sad kind of heartbreaking sad. If you have watched the show you get attached to all the characters, but with the premise of the series dealing with death it’s more intense.
I haven’t been this worked up over an episode since that damn Futurama episode with Frye’s dog waiting for him until he died…Oh my God..that makes me what to tear up now. I quit watching that show after that, and will never ever watch it again. Partly for fear it will be that episode.
This one was pretty close in the sadness scale, but I think Futurama still has it beat.
So, I’m going to find myself some kind of crap horror movie to watch to push away all the teary-eyed feelings.

My favorite thing is recognizing people on shows. Especially when it has taken me seasons to do so.
This week’s Throwback Thursday is the connection between Six Feet Under and American Horror Story Asylum and American Horror Story Freak Show.
I have been watching Six Feet Under for months now. All I have left is the series finale (so sad!). Then the new season of American Horror Freak Show just started last week (Holy shit is that Twisty the Clown freaky!!)
Last night while watching American Horror Story Freak Show it finally clicked to me that Frances Conroy (Gloria Mott) was Ruth Fisher on Six Feet Under!
Immediately I had to check my IMDb app to make sure I wasn’t losing my mind. Yes! It is her…wow! Then I look around and see another Six Feet Under cast member…
James Cromwell (George Sibley..Ruth’s second husband). It took me a second and then it dawned on me. He was that evil ass doctor, Arden, from American Horror Story Asylum (Honestly my least favorite season..but I have to watch them all!).
So there’s your weekly Throwback Thursday bit of trivia! Who’s have you been surprised to see in another show?

You know what I miss?
I miss Tom Hanks when he was funny and goofy. Sure he is great in dramatic roles. It is nice to see that range with a comedic actor, but I still miss the good old days.
In particular I miss Bosom Buddies. This 1980′s sitcom ran for two seasons and starred Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari. The main idea was that this guys needed a cheap place to live, and only place that worked was for women only. So, what to do? Dress up as women (fairly ugly ones) and move in.
It was a fun show with lots of high jinks with the guys pretending to be themselves and their own sisters. It was good fun! This is possibly what started my fascination with drag queens, and my wanting to be one myself (kinda tough being a woman).
