'Six Feet Under' Delivers Brilliant, Bittersweet Ending

Tonight, HBO's Six Feet Under concluded its five year run ending its final season with a finale full of multiple closures wonderfully befitting the series. Series creator Alan Ball delivered an emotionally powerful finale to a season that began quite plainly and, for a time, seemed headed towards undramatic plainness. That all changed several weeks ago with the sudden death of one of the main characters in an episode which, on its own, would have made a fitting finale but Ball pressed on, raised the bar and, in a nod to life's inevitable finality, brought Six Feet Under to its death slowly, beautifully, hauntingly, painfully and eloquently. The series will be missed.

UPDATE: The intensely moving song which played during the final scene of the show is called "Breathe Me" by Sia and is available over at Stereogum.
