p.s. i've never seen Six Feet Under, because i was too cheap to get HBO and always forget to pursue beautiful 'expired' things via less expensive means (hulu, etc.)... anyway, i was mesmerized by the shot of the corpse-like hands coming apart in the "art of the title" video and tracked down the image through the Frances Conroy text on the image, and found this "behind the scenes" piece on HBO about the making of the trailer for the show. The story behind the making of the trailer is verrrrry interesting (but I can't figure out how to slow down the text to read it all! day-um! takes multiple showing to read it!): http://www.hbo.com/#/six-feet-under/inside/behind-the-scenes/slideshow/opening-title-sequence.html/eNrjcmbO0CzLTEnNd8xLzKksyUx2zs8rSa0oUc-PSYEJBSSmp-ol5qYyFzLnszECoXRiaUl+QU5ipW1JUWkqJyMjAG2-Fzg=
