Nate Is Dead, Long Live Nate

I figure everyone who cares about this knows already, so I feel okay sharing the news that Nate Fisher, the show's protagonist for nearly five years, died on Sunday's episode of "Six Feet Under." It's probably not that big a deal, since Nate is a fictional character, the show is ending forever in three weeks anyway, and characters on SFU always continue to speak and interact with others even after they're dead.

One other amusing note from Sunday's episode of the resurgant-in-a-limited-way drama: it contained an argument between Claire and her lawyer boyfriend about Iraq that I've probably heard (and participated in) thousands of times- except for the part where she calls him a "redneck blogger pig." Especially funny, since subtle left-wing touches have been finding their way into SFU episodes since last year.

Yeah, I remember the sister (Sarah?) making a few comments. And the Kathy Bates character?

Damn you, Steve Silver. I didn't know. But now I do. And what with the Harry Potter spoilers of last week, I'm at the end of my rope. That's it. No more magazines or internet for me.
