Six Feet Under – Perfect Circles
I saw the whole series “Six Feet Under” and one episode stuck with me. Season two ends with the main character, Nate having brain surgery. As he goes under the anesthesia he starts dreaming. The next season opens with an episode called “Perfect Circles”. A must see for “Lost” fans, I think.
Nate has died on the operating table. He meets his dead father and goes through a series of visions of alternate realities he is told he must choose from. There are several sly references to cats in various realities. In the end Nate must make a choice to live or die and which life to live, then he opens his own casket – then the series writers did something very brave, They did a complete re-boot. It is six months or a year later and the lives of each character has changed from the previous season. Nate’s choice has touched the lives of all those he loved and loved him.
I place this under general discussion to see if anyone sees a relationship between what those writers did and the writers of Lost are planning for this season.
