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.Read more ›
Since then I bought each series as it came out. They've all been very good, although season 3 and 4 were probably my least favourite. Still good but not quite as brilliant as the first 2.
Season 5 was a truly amazing and also very fitting end to this inspiring TV show. The very last part of the last episode is so, so moving - I defy anyone not to shed a tear!
So my final words ( not literally I hope ) are - GO BUY IT!
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.Read more ›
This brave writing possibly resulted in its criminal late night schelduling on Channel 4 (UK), which means that the series has not recieved anything approaching the exposure it deserves. I've never written a review of anything before, but in this insance i felt it would be remiss of me to do otherwise.

Incredible. This series totally passed me by when on tv, and I only became aware of it after seeing Michael C Hall in Lazarus in November 2015. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Dame Meditation
