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, Nates 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, Ruths younger and seemingly free-spirited sister, Nates 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.

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 ThomasSee all Product Description

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.
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.Read more ›
For a very fair cost we the family will enjoy again and again by one and all.
