American TV enjoyed something of a cultural revolution at the turn of the millennium. Along with the likes of The Sopranos, The West Wing and 24, Six Feet Under's five seasons showcase a time when TV dramas began to rival those found on the big screen in terms of scope, production, script-writing, acting and directing standards, redefining the possibilities open to television series (and it would be rude to leave out the incredible work and achievements of SFU's make-up department). Conceived by American Beauty writer Alan Ball, the five hard-hitting seasons of Six Feet Under chronicle the lives of the dysfunctional Fisher family and its undertaking business run from its funeral home. Every character is spotlessly observed and grows with the seasons, and as a viewer you feel you learn about life (and death) along with them and their experiences. Such is the power of the script that you never feel it's just some kind of horrible pseudo-philosophical psychobabble being spouted - Six Feet Under truly makes you think about things that you'd rather you didn't have to.

Equal parts black comedy and maudlin sentimentality, as a rule each episode begins with a (usually highly imaginative) death that brings business the Fishers' way and often relevance to their own lives. The show, naturally, presents the viewer with issues of mortality and grief, but casts a much wider thematic net, incorporating the sexuality, growing pains and mental and physical illnesses of the main and supporting characters. To go into more detail would be to spoil the well-crafted plot development and twists for those coming into this DVD release dry. Suffice it to say, the majority of the human spectrum is captured perfectly and imaginatively.

The series:

I had seen a few episodes of Six Feet Under after here and there on TV and had always meant to get into the series properly. I decided to take a chance in buying the whole series boxset after many of the 5 star reviews and I can honestly say that I am very glad I did.

The series was innovative and thought provoking and managed (in my opinion) to convey perfectly the death of a loved one and the impact on those left behind. At no point did I feel that the show was preachy or "the most depressing thing I have ever seen" as it was crafted so beautifully to make you feel at all the right moments without the constant need for a box of tissues by your side.

Having bought the series as a whole and watched it more-or-less back to back over a month I can't honestly say I noticed a difference in the look or feel of the show which is a good thing as it was already spot-on to begin with.

The characters are interesting but flawed in the way that many of us are - making rash decisions, not being honest with others and keeping our true feelings hidden. But despite all that I found I could still relate to Claire (Lauren Ambrose) who portayed a coming of age teenager exactly as real teenagers behave, or the storylines of Nate and David where the two clearly have a different approach towards death and how someone's passing is handled. The same level of praise needs to be extended towards the cast who are all exceptional and wonderful to watch on screen.

For obvious reasons I don't want to give away anything about the major storylines or character development but what I will say is that the ending, which received almost universal fan and critical acclaim is well deserving of such an accolade.

I generally don't write reviews on Amazon but after watching this series I felt it would be criminal not to. I don't think there will ever be anything as good as this series made for a long time to come. I believe it is excellently scripted and acted and everything inbetween. Throughout it challenged me to think and made me laugh and cry many times. There are so many absolutely heart rendering moments scattered across all five seasons. And what an ending. Brilliant job, HBO. If you haven't seen this yet, I am very jealous of the journey you will take if you decide to buy and watch this series.

I've loved six feet under for a long time now, so I think it's about time I make a review about it.

As everyone knows Alan Ball happens to be one of the best idealists in the entire world. First there was his script for American Beauty, one of the best films in the previous decade. This opened thousands of opportunities for his career (along with his Oscar) and as fate would have it, he conjured up the beauty that is Six Feet Under.

Words cannot describe how fantastic this show really is. Every single aspect that you look at is outstanding, be it acting, scripting, directing, photography, you won't find anything better than this anywhere.

It's unbearably emotional at times, the way the show makes you care for its characters really draws you into the experience. The effect it's had on it's audience because of this emotion has undeniably changed the perspective they've had on death. And quite rightly so, because as the cast and crew have mentioned on the special features of this truly fantastic box - set, people have looked at six feet under as a way of comforting death. It rightly deserves the awards it's received and Alan Ball should have more attention, for I sincerely believe he is the mastermind of both cinema and tv.

As a little note to finish things off, Peter Krause delivers the best performance ever as his character Nate. He fits the character better than any actor I've ever seen before.
