During the final scene of the series when they show the dates of when key characters die, the mother was supposed to have died in 2023. I remember watching that episode in 2005 thinking that 2023 seemed so far away.
And here we are.

OP which streaming service are you using to watch it? A few years ago it was on Amazon Prime but then all HBO content got removed. I think it's on HULU as well as HBO. Just curious what you're using...

Its on hbomax R31.
I'm really enjoying it this time. I think last time I watched it for the first time it was while I was at drinking viewing parties so the alcohol blurred a lot if it. Didn't realize that while Brenda sucked the life out of Nate Billy was sucking the life out of Brenda and totally forgot how crazy Billy was.

It used to be my favorite show, and probably still is, but like R12 unfortunately it comes with its emotional baggage: and watching this all alone or with someone else what I used to watch with the love of my life might savagely test my capacity for resilience, so I've been sitting on that fence for about 12 years now. Like others upthread I also love Frances Conroy so much that my youtube channel is made of quite a lot of short clips of Ruth being Ruth like the utter meltdown in the pilote episode: "There’s been an accident. The new hearse is totaled. Your father is dead... Your father is dead and my pot roast is ruined". Thank you OP for the mixed bag of feelings!

Upon my second viewing I have more sympathy for Brenda and her brother though she's the ultimate self-saboteur which is difficult for me to sympathize with but I understand more. Ruth is a flake and on the spectrum hence the affinity with weirdo Arthur. I also liked Lisa a bit better. First time around she came across as a big drip.
Funny how viewing at different ages changes perspective.

During its run, I used to watch and my late husband would be sitting there reading. He said he really wasn't interested in it. During one of the last episodes of the last season, I said out loud "Nate is a cad." He turned to me and said "Nate has always been a cad!" Not watching, right. He watched the final episode with me and said it was the best series finale ever and I agreed.

SFU and The Sopranos were so good that I have had such high standards that I haven't really gotten into any other series, not that I watch much TV anymore. The finale, as many have said, is simply the greatest television ever. Enjoyed Man In The High Castle (Trump had been "elected" and was on heavy meds) and Sense8, during a relapse, but eventually lost interest after I became healthy and lost interest. Binge watched Arrested Development, then got into Transparent. Too bad Jeffrey Tambor turned out to be an asshole. Would like to get into TV series again. Any suggestions??

R60 you should check out The Deuce. It's an extremely well-made HBO show about people living on the fringe of society in Midtown Manhattan. It follows prostitutes, pimps, pornographers, gay men, dive bar workers, cops and city officials. There are three seasons: 1974, 1979 and 1984. As you can imagine the city starts off pretty grim in 1974 and then goes off the rails by the 80s. It's filled with wonderful clothes and music yet doesn't feel like a cheesy period piece. The characters all feel real. I'd highly recommend it if you're interested in the bad old days of NYC.

I hated Nate from the moment he pulled that sell the funeral home , no wait don't sell it thing in the first two episodes . And everyone treated him like he was the one to make that decision , not David who was slaving in it out of a sense of duty to his family while Nate was off finding himself somewhere with organic vegetables .

R66 you totally missed the whole meaning of that episode. It wasn't sexy.
Yes, Claire'sittle bitch routine got old fast. Her art school phase and friends were insufferable. Trying too hard to be edgy and pretentious and then her trying to be a lesbian phase.
Lisa's boss was hilarious. The petulant complaing about the baby taking attention from her emotional needs. Lisa's "what am I supposed to do, put her up for adoption?" and the hopeful "can you?" expression.

I watched SFU while I was going through chemo. My mother was staying with me. I was on steroids, completely wired and we’d binge watch a few episodes at a time. It would be 2, 3 a.m. and as the closing credits rolled, I’d turn to my mother and plead, “One more? Please?” She always said yes.

Pity for Ms. Byrd and others was by 1990's internet revolution rolled around and everyone started moving onto online chat rooms. People having PCs at home made that switch possible which decimated telephone chat business models.
