Six Feet Under: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)

Amazon.ca

So much anticipation pools up around the concluding episode of this concluding season that you might be tempted to head straight for said finale, titled "Everyone's Waiting" (and it's so rich you'll find yourself drawn to repeated viewings). But if you can avoid that impulse, it's worth following the full build-up of one crisis after another to get the real payoff. On an episode-by-episode basis, Six Feet Under's fifth season has a decidedly uneven quality, shifting in tone far more drastically, say, than the intensely dark season 4. Character traits that have already been developed at length begin to seem annoyingly repetitious--Nate's (Peter Krause) self-centered frustration and furious lashings out, Billy's (Jeremy Sisto) resurgent psychosis--like leitmotifs run amuck. But this season also benefits from the knowledge we've developed, over the years, of the Fisher family and their loved ones, so that what they end up facing has a real emotional wallop, sometimes jump-starting the drama just where it seems to be in danger of churning itself into circles.

It's hardly a spoiler to mention that 6fu's final season, though bookended by the promise of new beginnings (a wedding in episode 1 to a departure for new prospects in the 12th episode), centers around loss and a pivotal death. The scripts contain more than an occasional sense of inconsequential filler, while some of the recurring thematics seem forced (we see David continue to cope with the scars from his abduction in the previous episode via over-obvious imagery of facing his "inner demons"). Other issues receive especially compelling treatment, above all Brenda's (Rachel Griffiths) desire to have a child and David and Keith's (Mathew St. Patrick) choice to adopt. But the real strength of this season lies in several gripping performances. Ruth (Frances Conroy) touches off a complex series of reactions, simultaneously sympathetic and judgmental, transcending the tendency to appear as a neurotic caricature. The super-talented Lauren Ambrose brings off Claire's emerging self-awareness and maturity with moving touches (she's also got some of the funniest moments as she takes on a stint as a temp in scenes that call to mind the hysterics of The Office). Griffiths' Brenda for her part undergoes a parallel maturing process. And as George's daughter Maggie, Tina Holmes adds a welcome tone of contrast.

6fu, of course, has always been about the paradoxes of finality. But anyone who has developed an attachment to the show's unique tone and creative sensibility will have a tough time saying goodbye. Alan Ball outdoes himself with his script (and direction) for the finale, "Everyone's Waiting," seeding it with echoes from the pilot episode that will enchant aficionados. And the famous fast-forward visions coursing through Claire's imagination as she heads down the highway give the perfect seal to this set of characters. Extras include especially insightful commentaries, including Ball on the finale, retrospectives, and a mini-feature on 6fu's cultural impact. It's safe to say that the show leaves some pretty unforgettable impressions in its wake. --Thomas May

In this season, there is more conflict, growth and turmoil for the Fischer family. This is the finest most realistic heartwarming show ever made. The characters are haunting and true to life and this final season offers one of the most beautiful endings ever seen. If you are a fan of the Fischer family, do not miss this season.
If you are wondering what the show is about, start at the beginning (Season 1) and enjoy the ride! It is a very addictive show about living and dying which takes place in a funeral home. It is dark and humourous and each episode stays with you longafter and always makes you think. The characters make you angry, happy and sad all at the same time. When the season ends, you can't help but feel like you have lost some friends. That is acting at its finest!

When you watch a series from the beginning, it is hard not to be let down or disappointed when it ends. Alan Ball is the amazing exception to that disappointment. I loved "Six Feet Under", and all I had wanted was not to be left wanting more, or wondering "whatever happened?" From the shocking developement in the eighth episode of season five, to the gorgeous final scene from the finale episode, this is by far the best television has ever offered. I only hope that future series will come along and stand up to the bar that "Six Feet Under" brilliantly raised.

Je suis plus que satisfaite de cette série! Elle a toujours su me surprendre, me faire rire, me faire pleurer et remettre mes conceptions de la vie et de la mort en question. Enfin une série qui met au premier plan les personnages plutôt qu'une trame plus ou moins prévisible des séries conventionnelles. La cinquième saison a su être l'apogée de mon visionnement.

À la recherche d'une nouvelle série à regarder !

Je vous conseille fortement l'expérience Six Feet Under !

I already had the DVDs for the first two seasons of Six Feet Under and had been wanting to complete the series for some time but found the DVDs to be somewhat pricey. Fortunately, I waited a bit and it was well worth my while. By waiting for the DVDs to be on sale, I saved quite a lot of money.
