Question: OK, we all know Six ...

Question: OK, we all know Six Feet Under had a pretty rotten fourth season. Is there any chance of its returning to form in its final season? — Phil Ausiello: It depends. Do you like your SFU dour, predictable and sporadically compelling? If so, you're in luck, because the show delivers in spades. Based on the first two episodes (yes, I watched them over the weekend), everyone's either crazy, depressed or — in the case of David and Keith — dull. Oh, and while we're on the subject, I must clarify an earlier spoiler in which I said the season starts with Nate and Brenda already married (Ask Ausiello 5/11). Turns out that's not exactly true. The season premiere pretty much revolves around their nuptials. Someone misled me — and that someone will pay.
