-Show: Six Feet Under
-Year/s: 2004 and 2005 (Seasons Four and Five)
-What is the Series About? Per Wikipedia:
The series chronicles the Fisher family of funeral directors who struggle with relationships and their own personal demons while trying to maintain a small funeral home.
Per the Twins: A bunch of whiny annoying people run (and live in) their family funeral home business, including Claire who made us want to stab our computer screens. But PFach is in it!
-Watch Them All or Skip Around? You couldn’t pay us enough to watch the episodes PFach wasn’t in. We did, however, watch each of those episodes in their entirety. Big of us, we know.
-Who is PFach Playing? Jimmy, a sexy-hot artist who gives Claire her first orgasm (among many other things).
-How Much is He in It? Nine episodes over two (of five) seasons (you can see which ones here). In the grand scheme of the show:
Some of you may be wondering about our hostility toward Claire. Well, check out this vid, and behold what we LOVED about the show (duh), and what made us want to bury her alive (she’s the redhead).
-Fachs: StonerFach (you watched the above vid, right? He’ll even hold the bong FOR you!) and SexyArtistFach!
-Naked Time: Only PG naked time, but during the sexytimes he does teach us how to “Grind the Corn.” Oooh la la!
-Availability: Very, Six Feet Under is out on DVD, for rental online, on Netflix, etc. etc. etc.
-Best WTF?!? Moment: When Jimmy was trying to please Claire sexually, begging her to tell him what she liked, and she got all attitudinal about it. REALLY BITCH?!? REALLY???
-Drinking Game: Drink when…
- Jimmy comes on the screen! Sometimes you’ll have to wait patiently through an entire epi and he gets just a moment of screentime, but it’s worth it.
- You unconsciously mute it whenever Claire starts yapping.
- You wonder if any of these people are really likable (aside from Jimmy)
- FINISH YOUR DRINK: when Jimmy grinds the corn.
-Kate’s Thoughts: Okay okay, we’re fully aware that some of you may be getting ready to burn your PFachWatchalong membership card for our scathing review of SFU up above. We know there are a lot of people that absolutely loved it. And that’s fine…we just didn’t.
My thoughts on the show itself…I don’t think it was because we didn’t watch every single episode from all the seasons, I just didn’t enjoy it because 99% of the characters were unlikable, there was enough bitching and whining to make my eardrums bleed, and Claire by herself could turn me off of it for good. Sorry!
Now that I’ve gotten my bitching out of the way, let’s look at why we’re here.
Oh Jimmy. He stole every scene he was in. He’s funny, he’s sexy, he makes giant phallic lollipops in the name of art, and he turns into a SEX MACHINE under the influence of hallucinogenics.
His charm manages to cancel out Claire’s negativity, and even looks past her cockblocking to give her the elusive first Big O. He sees nothing wrong with participating in an art student orgy and does pushups in his manties when he’s high. JIMMY FOR PRESIDENT, Y’ALL!
SFU was my Christmas gift to my twin last year, and I know she has quite a bit more Jimmy-love to share with you, so I’ll now turn the floor over to her!
So…why don’t we start with a little game called: Things I Never Thought I’d Say (err….Type)
- “Damn, that is one sexy stoner in jean overalls!”
- “I wonder if I can will Claire to STFU with nothing more than my brainwaves…”
- “Holy crap, this mom on Six Feet Under is kind of an old hussie!”
- “Dexter, the gay serial killer. I like it.”
- “Whoa, is that dude gonna start getting freaky with the corpses?” (Trust me, you don’t want to know)
I’m going to try and be fair when it comes to Six Feet Under. I did not watch it from the beginning, nor have I seen any episodes other than the ones that featured Mr. Peter Facinelli. But like my twin said up above, even StonerFach and a completely different, more sensitive Dexter Morgan can’t make up for the whining, bitching, and overall fuckery that is this show.
Here are some random facts about Six Feet Under:
Remember that movie with the talking pig, Babe? Well old dude from that is the old dude in this, and he’s a conspiracy theorist who is paranoid and wants to live in a bomb shelter, until he disappears (we dunno where, cuz we missed an episode or two that PFach was NOT in. Meh).
Dexter Morgan the serial killer is now a super sensitive gay man! I was actually kind of impressed with his range, acting-chops wise, but it still wasn’t enough to make me enjoy SFU.
Dang. Tough crowd.
Kathy Bates was in SFU, and she was pretty awesome. She and the mom/old hussie went on a shady roadtrip to Mexico, which ended up being super lame! But not all roadtrips are lame! Especially when you are two awesome twins with great racks who are ready to take NYC by storm!!! Errr…uhhh….well, more on that later.
More random facts: One brother has a dead wife, a kid, and lots of issues. One wants to adopt some children with his partner, and when he does, the kids steal Escalades and verbally abuse the elderly. One has marital issues and starts lusting over the clientele. The dead clientele. (Again, you DON’T want to know.) And then Claire. Well, you know how we feel about her, so let’s start talking about the good stuff…
I’m sad to say that Jimmy really didn’t get enough face time for us to get to know him on a deeper level, but for us, he was like a diamond in the rough. He wasn’t on the screen much, but when he was, he commanded the scene!
From what I’ve seen, I have no choice but to give two thumbs down for Six Feet Under. Maybe if Jimmy was in it more and Claire was in it less, that would have changed my tune. Scratch that, it totally would have changed my tune! Even though I gave it the thumbs down, I would suggest at least heading to YouTube and watching the scenes with our boy in it. Or if you’re hardcore like us and want to check out the episodes he’s in, that’s cool too! Whatever you decide to do, his role is a must see for any PFach fan!
Jimmy as a character gets two thumbs up. Way up. And if you don’t know what ‘Grinding the Corn’ is, do yourself a favor and don’t Google it. Watch Six Feet Under and let Jimmy explain it to you instead. You’ll thank me later. Trust me.

You didn’t think there would only be ONE WTF?!? moment, did you? Watch the clip below to see what we mean, and remember, when you’re intoxicated and your good judgement is thrown out the window, stay away from creepy dudes like Russell. Seriously.
