Top 20 Television Characters of the Past 10 Years

#2) Nate Fisher (Portrayed by Peter Krause):

Arguably the main character of the second greatest drama in the history of television, Six Feet Under, Nate Fisher is the oldest Fisher son who originally didn't want anything to do with Fisher and Son's Funeral Home, but eventually came around and realized how beneficial emotionally being a funeral director can be. Part of why Nate is such a great character is that he is living each moment like it could be his last, due to the fact that he has arteriovenous malformation (AVM), a potentially fatal brain condition that causes seizures and strokes. If any show and character can teach you valuable lessons about accepting death, it's this show and this character. Another reason why he is entertaining is his numerous relationships with women throughout the run of the series. He always thinks things though logically, and he also has some epic fights with his on again-off again slut girlfriend Brenda. To bring it back to my main point, though, this show is about Death. Dealing with it, accepting it, and realizing that no matter what path you take in life, we all end up in the same place: Heaven, if you accept Jesus as your savior. Just kidding: I mean we all end up six feet under ground (well, unless you get cremated. Or your body is dismembered or never found. Or you drown and sink to the murky depths. Or...).
