This is an awesome series, kind of dark but very edgy. Well worth watching!

Six Feet Under showed the joys and heartaches of life and death with a family that dealt with death on a regular basis, dealing themselves with the death of the patriarch of the family. The whole family had different issues throughout the show trying to keep from being six feet under themselves. They had their crazy family and their insane ghosts that lead them through life. Sometimes somber and depressing, it was also a heartfelt, inspiring and uplifting ride. Better bring tissues.

Six Feet Under was amazing. It was fantastic for each of the five seasons. It has easily one of the best season finales ever. The writing and the cast were both terrific (although I could have done without Peter Krause's loud breathing).

Six Feet Under is a comedial drama centering a family that recently suffered a recent trauma (death of a loved one) and own a funeral home. The hard struggles of putting things aside to help family and find what it is your looking for. For a show that revolves around death, its like a flower that blooms of life. The day to day interactions and life lessons are well drawn in this show. The actors play their parts well, the script has a very nice flow and story is original. This show is a classic.

I thought the acting in all series was excellent. I did not like the farewell Nate gave Brenda. It seemed slightly out of character. She remained loyal and he did leave her well off. The death of his first wife did not seam reasonable. She loved her child and Nate loved her too. He as in sinck with her too. She would not commit sucicide. Murder was the most likely cause of her death. Who did it is a question that lingers.

Great show! It took me a few episodes to get into it, mostly because I wasn´t sure which character to like. They are all very edgy. A fact that quickly grew on me. I would actually recommend the show now exspecially because of the great character development through the seasons. A rare quality for shows!

Oh, how I loved this show. It was sad, funny, the character actors gave it their all and each has gone on to even better shows and in the case of the father - movie roles. I admit to sobbing throughout the last episode, even though I hadn't seen the last season, it was so moving. A fitting end to a wonderful show. Must catch up on those missed episodes.
