Picking at the SFU scab some more

Six Feet Under Season 4 soundtrack

Still licking the wounds from the end of SFU, so it's appropriate
that the DVD for SFU Season 4 was released today. Season 4 featured some of the most gripping, graphic and horrific scenes of human nature ever broadcast on television. "That's My Dog" is still talked about to this day, for the graphic and terrifying ride that David went on through the 50 minutes of the show. This episode set off a debate both about the show, and about what we're expected to see on television, as it put off quite a few fans. I was shocked, and I can take (and have taken) a lot of abuse, but still found the episode riveting. Claire's character gets a lot of development this season, as she goes to art school and tries to find who she is. "Terror Begins At Home" is a great episode in this thematic vein, and is also still talked about. Claire's character arc continues from Season 4 all the way to Sunday night's series finale, so it's interesting to revisit this key season in the SFU cannon.

Musically the art school scenes add a lot of indie and experimental rock to the usual classical (Funeral Home & Dinner tables,) electronica, latin, musicals, tin pan alley and jazz.
