I saw the PNB Nutcracker production many, many years ago...maybe 20? If it's anything like it used to be, it is truely amazing. I was blown away.

The Six Feet Under finale was in 2005. Or did you mean "best series finale I saw on DVD time-independent of it's actual airing"?


Michelle Auer said...

Yeah, what you said! Heehee. I didn't see it until 2006, so it counted for me.

It was full house, and a amazing show, above his piano, great!
And in a very nice venue, ask to Jon, saw him there with Big Star!
