When death is your business, what is your life? For the Fisher family, the world outside of their family-owned funeral home continues to be at least as challenging as --and far less predictable than --the one inside. From Oscar-winning screenwriter Alan Ball (American Beauty) comes this breakout series that takes a darkly comic look at members of a dysfunctional L.A. family that runs a funeral business. With Peter Krause, Frances Conroy, Michael C. Hall, Lauren Ambrose and Rachel Griffiths. This box set contains all five seasons of the show that changed the landscape of television forever.

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. It not only ended brilliantly from a storyline perspective but also from a legacy perspective. What I mean is that it's nice for a show to end while it's at the very top of it's game without the need for TV networks to run it into the ground. No spin offs, no specials, so sequels. Perfect.
The version of the series that I received was made to look like a tombstone (the same as the current product image in fact) which sits very nicely on a shelf with all my other DVD boxsets (LOST, Band Of Brothers etc.,) and so thankfully isn't monstrously big and difficult to tidy away. Inside were the 5 seasons as they appeared on separate retail release. One thing to note is that I DID NOT receive the black covers over the cases which I have seen in the product images but I don't care as I didn't buy this series for a bunch of cardboard sleaves.
I would have liked a little bit more in the way of "Behind The Scenes" style features but all-in-all I can't complain as there are a few documentary shorts and "Making Of.." featurettes. I was also impressed with the amount of audio commentaries that this series has! Plenty to get your teeth into and get a different perspective on how the creators or actors view a scene.
If you liked American Beauty (another of Alan Ball's creations) and you don't like lazy-writing where everything is "fine and dandy" at the end of each episode then this is a series you'll most likely enjoy. Things achieve a recognition and following for a reason and Six Feet Under is a perfect example of this. Once again, brilliant from beginning to end and well worth having.
Everything, Everyone, Everywhere, Ends.
Miss this series and you miss out on more than I could explain here. Forget therapy, forget books. Just watch this entire series and learn, cry, laugh, be entertained and be educated about life and death and everything in between.
I only wish there were more made of this show but I guess all good things come to an end and when they do they get buried, six feet under!
