Six Feet Under The Complete Series is one of the Best TV shows ever!
on December 27, 2006
I had no idea what to expect when I purchased this Six feet Under box set. I heard from many friends that this was one great show I had to check out. I never had any interest of watching this show when it was on HBO. I wish I would have given it a chance when it was still on the air. I just completed watching all five seasons and it took me a little over a month to do it. The first few episodes made me wonder if this show was even worth getting, but after the first 2 episodes I was hooked. The show is about the Fisher family who own a funeral home. Every episode starts out with a death and sets the tone for that show. I have seen many TV shows, but no other show has dealt with life and how we deal with it like this show does. The characters on Six Feet Under are not all just white folks. The show has a great balance of ethnicity and diversity. You get characters who are gay, latino, black, and many others(some with major issues). This show has some of the best acting I have ever seen. If you're like me you're probably thinking a show about a family that owns a funeral home? This show is so much more than that. I like the fact that this show takes you on a journey with the characters, and as each season passes the show just gives you more twists and turns. The very last episode of this series is one of the best hours and most emotional hours of TV I have ever watched. After you see the last episode you will know that life is a gift and appreciate it more than ever. I highly recommend this truly unique and amazing show!
