Format: DVD
Six Feet Under is, I feel, the War and Peace of our time. It is an epic masterpiece, exploring our vulnerable relationships to sex and death. The characters are flawed, human, struggling, striving with their innate humanity and confusion in a mundane world of repression and desire. Being 'six feet under' does not not necessarily refer to working in a Funeral Home, which the Fisher family certainly does but being 'under' the surface, the complexity of longing and being alone in one's self.

The story revolves around the funeral home of Fisher and Sons in Southern California. David Fisher (still in the closet around his close family) runs the funeral home after a tragic family accident. Ruth, his mother is our traditional matriarch. She is soft-spoken, kind-hearted but not quite at ease in the changing world around her. Nate is the prodigal son and becomes the reluctant family partner, helping David run the family business. Clare is finishing high school, dealing with all the angst and apprehension of adolescence and coming adulthood.

Surrounding these main characters are Brenda, Nate's love interest and Keith, David's lover. Both have been scarred by their childhoods but manage to offer support and sometimes clarity to their mates.

Last but not least is Frederico, the restorative artist employed by the Fishers whose life is linked to the family by the goodness of Nathanial Fisher, the former patriarch.

As the show evolves from the first episode, the viewer is aware that this is more than just a television program. It is a prolonged meditation of death. Each episode provides us with a momento mori (a souvenir of death) in which the show opens with a death that will either be consequential, opening up stories or provide background to the episode.

Format: DVD
This series takes a darkly comic look at members of a dysfunctional L.A. family that run a funeral business.

When death is your business, what is your life? For the Fisher family, the world outside of their family-owned funeral home continues and is as challenging as the one inside.

It basically touches almost every taboo subjects out there and puts it into a very intelligent storyline for entertainment at it's best!

Recommended for any open-minded viewers, but not so much for viewers with restriction in regards to sexual content, religion, etc.

Jai acheter cette serie sans même savoir de quoi serait le sujet.. on m'en avait simplement parler. Simplement excellent.... c'est bon et vous avez aussi l'option français. Perso, je l'ai écouter en anglais sous-titré anglais... mais a votre choix. Excellent achat, et boitier vraiment cool.

Vous serez juste pas décu. La 1ere série nous permettre de nous adapter et avec la 2ieme série, vous tomber sous le charme complètement des personnages. Ils vivront avec vous pendant quelques semaines, et vous aurez vraiment de la peine quand ca va terminer. Aussi, dois-je dire que la fin de cette série est remarquable... jai en plus tout plein d'amis qui me l'emprunte et les commentaires sont tous plus que positif! A ACHETER.. ARGENT NON PERDU: Garantit!!

My boyfriend introduced me to this series. He himself had already bought the boxed set and watched the series from start to finish. Upon sliding in the first dvd it took me about five minutes to be 'hooked'. I knew right away that this was something special. I felt really lucky to be able to view the whole series as I had the time instead of having to wait a week between episodes. The best recommendation I can give you is that I bought the set for my Dad for Christmas, because I knew he would like it so much.
So, for you who don't know anything about this series here are some things you should know:

1. It does explore the sacred cows of race, religion, gay relationships, recreational drug use, in a relatively explicit manner. All of this is done within the context of a very psychologically sophisticated story-line.

2. Character development is phenomenal: characters remain true to themselves all the way through, but, just like 'regular' people, are not predictable, they are very nuanced and multi-faceted and watching one of the character's ego slowly collapse and reform was one of the most interesting things I have ever seen on tv.

3. The storyline is gripping-the context of a family-owned funeral home struggling to remain viable in the midst of heavy competition provides a great backdrop for a variety of scenarios around centered around the usually off-the-wall deaths of the corpses. Great guest performers appear throughout the series as foils for the regulars.

4.There is bound to be a character you identify with. You CARE about this family. This series is very emotionally engaging.The ongoing romance between the Nate and Brenda character is unsurpassed by anything I have ever seen before or since (or even read about in a novel for that matter.

I laughed and cried my way through this entire series. Watching it was like falling in love. The characters were so incredibly compelling that I felt I was part of their lives. This is a unique drama.

Highly recommended.
