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

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.

Contains all 13 episodes from Series 2:

  • In The Game
  • Out, Out Brief Candle
  • The Plan
  • Driving Mr Mossback
  • The Invisible Woman
  • In Place Of Anger
  • Back To The Garden
  • It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but dark 4 Sep 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind-blowing! 27 April 2005
Format:DVD
Six feet Under has to be one of the most original TV series ever made. And the second series could possibly be said to be even better than the first ( if it is possible!). I can not recommend it highly enough and if there were more stars to rate this, it would get 100!

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic Magic Realism 17 Jun 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible 24 Jan 2013
By R. Forse TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It's a rare commodity; a TV show that can push every button and tug at every emotion. I watched this from series 1-5 back to back over a few months and it more than maintained my interest throughout. There was not many episodes where I wasn't laughing, crying or empathising, but most of all I was believing. You get wrapped up in this quirky world where peculiar things happen all the time but they all seem to fit in the world in which this beautiful show is set.

Some of the characters are, I found, a little annoying but even they are multi layered and interesting and the performance of a young Michael C Hall (amongst others) is phenomenal.

This is in the same category to me as Breaking Bad, Sopranos and Dexter, just a cut above almost everything else out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of an era. 19 April 2010
Format:DVD
I bought all five dvd-boxsets of this tv-show after being recommended by many friends and after seeing the rave reviews, I decided I would buy them (as I love most other HBO series) I had no idea what I was getting into but I'm glad I did. This show is one of the best things ever to grace our tv's- truly. This show has depths, it is packed with laughs and tears. After watching the amazing "American Beauty" I did some background research and found that it was written from the same producer (Alan Ball) that wrote for Six Feet Under and writes for "True Blood" after learning this, I immediately began watching. With superb performances from Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Rachael Griffiths (Brothers and Sisters) and Peter Krause (Dirty Sexy Money) this show is one of the few out there that are truly amazing- add this to your basket now- you won't be disappointed. Warning: Contains the odd, graphic sex scene, hard drug use, very strong language and nudity. This show is not rated 15, as indicated by Amazon, it is, in fact, 18, as does the box inform. Happy watching!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection 11 Oct 2004
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Six Footsteps to why you should buy this! 13 Sep 2004
Format:DVD
This is the second series of Six Feet Under, I personally believe this is the greatest tv drama ever made.
My First reason you should buy this is the fact that this programme has far more than your regular TV show, this programme's core issue is soemthing we have never been through but it is our fate; Death. This programme cleverly and in detail outlines the different kinds of loss as humans we will discover through life. This is the greatest reason for the show.
My Second reason is because it's by HBO, the Daddy network of them all. The source of great Tv comedy Larry Davud's Curb Your Enthusiasm, the King of Drama's The Sopranos, Sex and the City and the home of Five time Golden Globe award winner Angels In America. Like it says, it's not TV it's HBO.
My third reason is the fantastic cast and crew behind this, the wonderful Rachel Griffiths, from Australian Summer Smash Hit; Muriel's Wedding, the elegant Frances Conroy who serves up as the widow, Ruth Fisher, the Great cretor and mastermind of it all Alan Ball, whose motion picture American Beauty came out with best Pisture from the Oscars.
My Third reason is the fact that every episode of this who starts on someone's death, which is such a great idea, also the fact that Thomas Newman's beautiful score plays in the opening titles, Thomas Newman, the man behind music for; ShawShank Redemption, American Beauty, Angels In America.
My Fouth Reason is the fact that the actual boxset itself is really nicely layed out, it opens and closes nicely and it has a lobely menu screen, which makes you feel like the forty something pounds is worth it.
