This review is from: Six Feet Under - Complete HBO Seasos 1-5 Collector's Edition (24 Disc Box Set) [DVD]  (DVD)
I'm not the biggest TV fan in the world, especially drama serials that can often drag on into oblivion just to keep the viewers glued to the screen.
This is what makes Six Feet Under such a rarity as it is one of the best written dramas I've ever watched. It combines deeply serious issues with black comical genius to capture the essences of life, which most of us will face in our lives at some point... And of course our ultimate demise at the end of the journey! - A centrepiece to this drama, always in the background and usually forgotten unfortunately.
The characters are very real and believable, you can identify with their lifes, feelings, wants and woes.. Very rare for a drama series, especially from the US where we are bombarded with the likes of Lost (which I don't mind too much), 24, Prison Break etc.. More brawn than Brains typically.. And Six Feet Under is a character and wry genius.
It'll make you laugh, cry, think, perhaps even question your own life..
