    Six Feet Under: Making Love Work (4/6)

    In this episode directed by Kathy Bates, Ruth forms a closer relationship with Arthur (the new boarder) while watching "Silent Running" together and sniffing his handkerchief.

    Nate and Lisa go camping with friends and try to re-discover each other.

    Brenda makes a quick reappearance in this episode and the electricity between her and Nate is so evident while he is trying to convince himself that his relationship with Lisa is really working.

    Claire and her art class friend get intimate while Rico wrestles with the challenges of a double-wide corpse and "triple X" casket.

    David and Keith discuss their relationships with women before they fully came out of the closet.

    As usual, this show was gripping and went by much too quickly. I miss Kathy Bates' character in the show. She is such a presence. I'm sure that she was too busy directing this episode to appear in it.

    Claire's art teacher is so critical of everyone but Claire it makes you wonder if he's related to cranky Simon Cowell.

    Even though "Six Feet Under" still hasn't gathered as much steam as it has in the past two seasons, it's still the best drama on television today. The acting is superb and the premise brilliant.

    That's a great description of the art teacher! Why he feels the need to be so about everything is beyond me. I guess he doesn't want Claire or Russell to "lose" their talent by getting soft with society but his attitude is wearing thin. Then again I think Claire needs to brighten up too and even though I like Russell, I predict he's taking pills before the season is over.

    I agree it's the best drama on tv. The pace has been slow but it might be just the sort of build-up it needs to keep us wondering what will happen next. We need a huge blow-up between Nate and Lisa soon. Got a taste of it tonight and from the previews, I think more next week.

    Nate's gotta run free!!!

    oh wow, yes, please pleeeease let Nate out of this marriage before he goes stir crazy. lol. TOnight they finally blew off some steam, but one roll in the hay isn't gonna fix everything...maybe temporarily.... did you notice that the times she mentioned where they had had "life altering" sex before was after he had been dumped or stood up ..... makes you wonder what the motivation was behind it this time..... Brenda possibly?

    I hope Russell isn't headed towards suicide or anything, if I was a producer or writer... sounds morbid but... (oh hey this entire series is morbid, forget that part...) .... anyhow, he seems very depressed & lost, and is he gay or not?

    What's with the intern & Ruth? I guess he's like her in many ways, kind of "stiff" & dull & organized..... it would be very traumatizing if the two of them got intimate.... hehe

    Ah. This series always leaves ya longing for more....

    Exactly. Nate's got needs Lisa could never possibly fulfill.

    ....anyhow, [Russell] seems very depressed & lost, and is he gay or not?
    David seems to think so. Also, I think Russell could very come out of his shell. You saw how "happy" he got about his sister's wedding and the wedding rehersal. But then Claire shafted him and he's back to being the hurt artist.

    ...it would be very traumatizing if [Arthur & Ruth] got intimate.... hehe
    I'm not ready to see that, even if this is cable.

    I think Ruth's sniffing on the handkercheifs was because they remind her of old Nate Fisher (the Dad, Ruth's husband, who hasn't been around much this season but was "around" even though he's been dead since the pilot).

    Interesting episode. I'm not wild about Nate and Lisa together, but I don't miss Brenda one bit. I know she'll be back because she won an award for this role, but ack, leave her out of it. Crazy ch. I like Arthur. What a quirky character. I like Russel, but I think he'll be turning self-destructive very quickly, as suspect it will come in the form of Claire's boyfriend from earlier this season showing back up and wanting to be in a real relationship with her because he realized (too late, IMHO) that she was special and worth his exclusivity. That will send poor recently-deflowered Russel over the edge. Ruth is hysterical, as always. Looks like David is taking Keith to a gay choir thing next week. Should be interesting, as that really isn't Keith's scene.

    I'm not a big Lisa fan. She's so weird! I can't even think of her as pretty. She's just so strange looking.

    When Brenda came walking in the horizon, I seriously said, "They're gonna have sex right there on that rock. I know it!" Alas! It was just a dream. Oh well!

    I hate it when Lisa and Nate have sex. It's so gross. It's not right...mostly it has to do with Lisa. Eww!

    That Arthur guy is alright. I thought it was hilarious how he turned off the tape and porn was on!

    lol I loved that scene!! Arthur is a great character, I love it. Poor guy with the dead body that fell over LOL, good practice though I guess!

    I feel sorry for Federico, I really like him. I'm glad he finally got to brainstorm a good idea (Arthur) & I'm sure it makes him feel better to have someone "under" him, since he's a partner in the business now and not just an employee.
    I like him, he's funny, maybe sometime down the line him and claire would make a good couple! hehe =)

    (I don't wanna make predictions in this show because it's down right impossible to say what's gonna happen next... I just love it.)

    you mean after Claire breaks Russels' heart into a billion little pieces? Now Ruth and Arthur - just a wee bit creepy. She's better off with Nickolia or Kathy Bates. But I do like Arthur as a character. Where do people like that come from?
