What a great and original show
10 December 2005 | by angelesaSee all my reviews

I missed Six Feet Under and this is the closest I can find that matches its wits, plots and characters.

It is refreshing to see a family that has their problems and deal with it the way they do.

Would love to see CHUM do more of these kinds of shows. No reason why Canadian filmmakers cannot be recognized for quality shows.

What I find fascinating is its simplicity in filming. My favorite characters would be Saul, Nicky and Ari. I believe they are portrayed in a very realistic way. Cancer affects all of us and this show portrays a powerful way of dealing with the situation, including those affected.
