Product Description

Six Feet Under: The Complete Third Season (DVD)

No other show captures the ebb and flow of day-to-day human relationships like Six Feet Under, which chronicles the dysfunctional lives of the Fisher family, who run a funeral home in Los Angeles. Though the overt theme of the series is mortality--every episode opens with the death of someone whose body will end up on the Fishers' slab--but the third season, even moreso than the first two, explores the intertwining struggles for connection and for personal freedom. The season starts slowly but compellingly, laying out the changes in the Fishers' lives. Nate (Peter Krause, We Don't Live Here Anymore) has married and has a baby. David (Michael C. Hall) is settling into tense domesticity with his angry boyfriend. Claire (Lauren Ambrose) has launched into art school. Ruth (Frances Conroy), their mother, is reaching out for companionship from an emotionally stilted young intern, and Brenda (Rachel Griffiths, Hilary and Jackie), Nate's ex-fiancee, has apparently vanished from their lives.

But as storylines unfold across the 13 episodes, the emotional heft of the season comes from the expanded roles of the family's intimates. Federico (Freddy Rodriguez), who has leveraged his way into a partnership with the Fisher brothers, finds himself fighting to be treated as an equal at work and struggling with his wife's depression at home. Trying to sort out their relationship, David and Keith (Mathew St. Patrick) negotiate everything from therapy to threesomes. Meanwhile Lisa (Lili Taylor, I Shot Andy Warhol), Nate's unhappy wife, increasingly becomes the center of the season as her jealousy and need become unbearable. Though big events happen, the most jolting drama on Six Feet Under comes from small conflicts--miscommunications, crossed desires, habits that don't mesh. The cast, writers, and directors can, with breathtaking skill and subtlety, spin a brief conversation into a microcosm of the character's lives. By this third season, the show has taken on the richness and complexity of a great novel; it's an impressive and deeply enjoyable achievement. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Climactic Season of an Amazing Series June 28, 2005
By CreepyT
After hearing about and reading a lot of the hype surrounding this show, I thought it noteworthy to check out. Unfortunately for me, I have no cable television with which to view HBO. Therefore, I was stuck waiting until this show came out on DVD. When season one finally did come out on DVD, I rushed out and rented disc one. After only watching the first couple episodes, I was completely hooked, and decided to buy the DVD set. Since then, Six Feet Under has become my favorite shows.

Season three is definitely a pivotal season. Alan Ball does less of the writing, and this is easily noted within many episodes. Much of the quirkiness of the Fischer family seems lost, or at least altered. There seems to be far more drama with less of the fun comic relief that was always present in the first two seasons. The ebbing ups and downs seem to pique much more drastically, making season three quite a roller coaster ride of emotions, reaching it's crescendo with a dramatic cliffhanger finale that leaves you anxious to see what happens in season four.

Each and every character undergoes growth and maturity throughout the season, as in previous seasons. Claire is busy adjusting to art school, while David is trying desperately to patch up his relationship with Keith. Nate approaches life with a newfound appreciation after his brain surgery, and Brenda doesn't seem to be a part of his new plans. Ruth longingly seeks companionship after breaking things off with Nicolai, and finds it in some rather odd places. Federico is trying to find his place in the business as a new partner, while also trying to deal with troubles of his own at home. Brenda, after a brief excursion, attempts to find her way in the world without Nate.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Great Series Seems Really Off in the 3rd Season March 4, 2006
Note--this comes from a perspective of someone who has not yet seen the fourth or fifth seasons.

The first two seasons of "Six Feet Under"--really drew me in. The funeral home was always threatened by a conglomerate corporation, Nate and Brenda, both who had really serious issues on their own had a rather interesting relationship to watch, David's coming to turns with his identity, Claire's problems with her relationships and friendships as an outcast in high school, the threat of Billy to many of the characters (Nate, Brenda, Claire) and Ruth's coming to terms with relationships and finding peace (i.e. "The Plan")-- all of these were rather interesting, drew us to the characters, and were unique, as well as wild and off the wall. Add to this and accidental dosages of ecstasy and dream/talk to dead sequences with the Father were rather engaging--along with David or Rico or Nate dealing with the deceased of that week for that struggle they were dealing with at that time and the conversations they had-- a lot of that was good stuff. The Fisher house would always have this atmosphere of depressing/dysfunctionality, but all of these attachments made it interesting. We wanted to come into this house, take a seat and spend time with the Fishers.

Then in the third season, a lot of the chemistry went so well, went lost. I had no problem with the season opening--Actually it added to the dimensions of the show of dealing with death and loved ones and opened up the possibility that maybe Nate made a choice, even if it's how he recalled it--but the time gap had its consequences, since I as a viewer still cannot buy that he married Lisa.

5.0 out of 5 stars A TEN star series July 17, 2005
The only disappointment I felt with HBO'S Six Feet Under season 3 was when it was over. Season 4 won't be released until late August and I don't know if I'll make it. The addiction is still strong and when I realized it could be a year before I ever got to see season 5, I went out and ordered HBO. I have lived this long without the premium channels but SFU has changed that. I know this isn't a good thing but I hear admitting the problem is half the battle.

I absolutely, positively love this series. In my book, they don't come any better!

5.0 out of 5 stars A SERIES TO END THEM ALL!!!! February 18, 2005
To wait even 3 more months to see this collection of, not just HBO's finest series, but television's finest as well, is driving me absolutely mad.

Season one was AMAZING, it introduces you to charecters, it displays all of the elements that makes the show what it is, the humor, Its seriousness, the incredible and unpredictable storytelling, the charisma of everyone on screen, cannot help but fall in love with these people.

Season two is also amazing, for the same reasons, however I think the first season is more enjoyable to me, because of the newness, getting to know everyone, etc...season 2 is breathtaking though, and it leaves you hanging at the end.

Season three...WOW. I think the show hit its peak here, because not only does it hold onto the strengths, but it begins to turn into a new phase of the show. Where season one was fresh because of its newness, this one is fresh because of it taking such a turn. I believe this season displays the transitional episodes, that make it a different show for season 4 and continues throughout 4. I wont spoil it for those who havent seen 3, but those who have seen it, know where Im going with this...and that is that this season REALLY tugs at the heart. I have never gotten into television shows OR movies like I have with this show, and personally, this season.

I CANNOT wait for season 5...and for those of you who are dreading the shows end with season me...understand, every series television show going past 4 or 5 seasons, looses alot of staying power. Six Feet Under has staying power, but I think it will stay on top if they dont try to kill it.

With DVD release, we will have an epic story to cherish.

Heres to season 5!!!!!
