Product Description

One of the most critically acclaimed shows on television, Six Feet Under returns for a second season with the award-winning mix of cutting edge drama and deliciously dark humour that made the first season so popular. Continuing its look at the Fishers – the dysfunctional family who own and operate Fisher & Sons funeral home in Los Angeles, Six Feet Under digs where others fear to tread. The second season continues with more enthralling storylines as Nate finds out about a mysterious growth on his brain, Ruth, the family matriarch tries harder than ever to develop close relationships with her children, David has come out of the closet and moved in with the emotionally troubled Keith and Claire, the artistically gifted teenage daughter seeks some stability in her life in the form of a new man. The Fishers’ lives are intertwined with friends and loved ones, both living and deceased: Lisa, Nate’s old friend from Seattle, who is the mother of his infant daughter, Federico, the young mortician and family man who has risen from employee of Fisher & Sons to partner, Sarah, Ruth’s younger and seemingly free-spirited sister, Nate’s one-time fiancée, Brenda, whose relationships with her own family might be more dysfunctional than any of the Fishers’ and Nathaniel Snr., the deceased patriarch, who reappears in flashbacks and daydream-like visitations, serving both as a comfort and a conscience to those he left behind.

From Amazon.co.uk

In some ways, HBO's Six Feet Under plays kid brother to the Sopranos: it's spunkier, less refined, chancier and a bit of a punk. Nevertheless, the show, set in the southern California mortuary Fisher and Sons, deserves its place in the pantheon of great television series. The initial series was a showcase for the most original characters, including tight-lipped brother David (Michael C Hall) coming out of the closet, emotionally trippy mom Ruth (Frances Conroy) and the most complex girlfriend on the face of the planet, Brenda (Rachel Griffiths). Slowly, the major force in series two 2 is the unassuming lead, Peter Krause. Part of the long line of good-looking actors who never get respect because they make it look too easy, Krause finds the perfect blend of optimism and wonderful, bittersweet anguish as Nate, the prodigal son.

The opening series' happy ending is forgotten as relationships change, the business is still under fire from the evil conglomerate Kroehner, and a lively dream sequence is just around the corner. As with the first series, creator Alan Ball lets many others direct and write the show, but his stamp is all over it. The eccentricities of the characters are shaped, and not always suddenly. Take daughter Claire (Lauren Ambrose), who sheds her bad boyfriend only to find more complex relationships on her road to discovering her own groove. One person in the mix is Ruth's beatnik sister (Patricia Clarkson, in an Emmy-winning role). She's a joyous embodiment of thriving--if ageing--counter-culture. Another new character is Nate's old girlfriend, the granola-loving Lisa (Lili Taylor). With Brenda heading down another destructive course, Nate is at more than one crossroads by series' end. For fans who groove with the wild, serio-comedic world of the Fishers (and let's face it, many didn't), the second series goes down like a fine meal of fusion cuisine. --Doug Thomas

I always think of Six Feet Under as being more like a novel than a TV serial. The depth of characterization, the stylistic flourishes, the importance of psychology: this isn't classic TV terrain, but it puts me in mind of, say, Philip Roth or John Updike. The second series of Six Feet Under is as good as the first, and enriches our knowledge of the characters in some interesting new ways, with some very strong scenes betweem Nate and Claire for instance. The quality of the writing, acting and direction is unflaggingly high, but a word of warning to those not familiar with Six Feet Under! I lent the DVD to my dad, whose response was "But it isn't funny". Well, it's not meant to be funny, or not in the way that, say, Phoenix Nights or Blackadder is funny. The humour here is black and subtle and slow to emerge. But that doesn't mean it's not there; it's just that it's part of a much richer tapestry - probably the best evocation I've ever seen in a TV show of family life and the neurotic complexities of human relationships.

Still enjoying this loads, however, do find Brenda and her side of the family irritating at times. Suppose it is a different dynamic to the show, just one I would personally prefer to go away. The mother is still nuts, David is still gay and Nate is a great lead with some amazing one liners. Claire is still full of teen angst but makes me chuckle. I'm suprised but I do really like this and I will be getting the 3rd series. Still not viewable in widescreen, you have to zoom in or have white lines down the side, you soon get used to them.

The second series of six feet under continues the story of the fisher funeral home with it being at the core of the lives that live there and visit there,all roads lead to there basically,this series drops some of the surreal scenes that we all loved in season one and stays within the mindset of a reality that is dark,bleak and somewhat tortured.
Six feet under does not have any real twists or edge of the seat tactic,although this season ends with a cliffhanger,this series is slow,and deliberately so,patience is required as the lives of those involved is scraped to the bone,we learn alot more about the key characters here and then some.
The dark humour exists still but is less evident than on the first series for certain,this is a show that demands respect and gets it from myself,it will never appeal to all,never,but this series is on par with the first for various reasons,enjoy.

There's not much you can say about Six Feet Under. It just takes your breath away. I've personally never watched anything as near to perfect as this, neither on television nor at the cinema. Sublime.

IMHO the finest thing ever to grace our TV screens. The first series introduced us to the wonderful world of the Fisher family. Each character was shown with a precision and plausibility that most other TV hasn't yet even begun to approach, drawing you into a their world through the simple measure of making the players both wholly believeable and gorgeously sympathetic. The acting throughout is close to flawless, especially in the case of the main players, Peter Krause (Nate), Michael Hall (David), Lauren Ambrose (Claire), Rachel Griffiths (Brenda) and Frances Conroy (Ruth).
The show's kaleidoscopic-psychedelic realism seems an unlikely way to draw you into a tangle of fundamental questions of life and death, love, loyalty and the search for identity, but the producers hit the button show after show. It's rare for me to watch an episode without coming away feeling I've both seen something breathtakingly beautiful, but also that I've been invited to think about something important to how I see myself, my life and those around me.
The second series sees the characters rounded out yet further; facing their trials, sometimes failing, sometimes succeeding, but never loosing our interest. Here the prodigal son, Nate, slowly emerges as the focus of the story (though this is done so gently that it takes some time to register.) The end of series finale is so wonderfully executed that it left me breathless. When it was all over I couldn't help but think that I'd just watched the smartest, most honest and direct TV I'd ever seen, addressing the big questions of life without for one moment being patronised. This show is, quite simply, magic.

Six Feet Under is possibly one of the greatest shows ever created. Provocative, fresh, darkly comic and dramatic, this is TV heaven, and Season 2 does not disappoint. However, this season has a darker feel to it than season 1, and much of the black humour seems to have been replaced by darker, more serious storylines. But this is TV drama at its best and there are some genuinely touching and moving moments where you really feel empathy for the characters, and some episodes can only be described as gorgeous, and will take your breath away and really make you think, not only about the show but about life in general. How many TV shows can do that? The major storylines involve Nate's discovery of a tumour, David and Keith's relationship difficulties, Claire trying to discover who she is and her place in the world, and Brenda's downward spiral into sexual addiction. The acting is superb and is one of the best things about the show, as it makes the show feel very real and believable. Every episode is excellent, and the interaction between all of the characters and their relationships with one another make for compelling viewing, and the last few episodes are truly emotional. If you are a person who is easily offended, I would not recommend SFU, but if you love great television, and are a fan of SFU, I strongly recommend Season 2.
