I bought this because I've heard such good things about the series. But I only got to see the first episode from this boxed set because after that the discs were unwatchable. I had heard the packaging was bad, but I didn't think it could possibly be this horrible. When I removed the discs from the box some of them had paint on them and others had glue on the edges. I couldn't watch it and had to send it back. Safe to say I was disappointed.

Where do I start... This was a gift for a friend so I didn't find out it was damaged until recently since their Birthday was just a few weeks ago, they had taken it home opened it and found it not it great condition. The special box that holds all the indavidual seasons was damaged and even those containers were damaged leaving DVDs lose moving around leaving them scratched. Overall I'm not happy.

This show started out very strong and caught my interest. I was hooked to the characters and storylines, and watched it in marathons. Then came season 3, and the whole thing took a dive. The entire season was ridiculous and irritating, and by the end of the season I didn’t like a single character in the show, but felt the obligation to continue watching this train wreck to see how it all ended. When it did I was completely relieved to be done with it.

Nate, the older brother, is a self-absorbed, promiscuous manchild who hooks up with any female that crosses his path, despite his relationship status. David, the younger brother, was the initially stoic and closeted gay man who degenerated into the most deplorable stereotype, as he and his “boyfriend” opt for an open relationship and sleep with anyone they can find in the gutter, completely perpetuating the most disgusting stereotypes of self-centeredness and clingy insecurity. Clair is the gloomy wannabe artist baby of the family who latches on to any dysfunctional boy she can find, that is before she jumps ship and starts experimenting with girls. Ruth is the seemingly conservative mother who contradicts herself by ending up in the most bizarre and flighty attempts at relationships, including trying to seduce a pre-Office Dwight Schrute, followed by a whirlwind marriage with a boring old man who goes from mundane to having a sorted history of mental problems. And the incest between Brenda and her bipolar brother was beyond unnecessary, and even disturbing in the most unpleasant way.

The whole premise of Six Feet Under seemed to revolve around sex and crying. If this batch of pathetic losers were not sleeping with someone, they were having an emotional breakdown or fighting for no other reason but to do it. The writers on this mess didn’t seem to know what direction to take any of the characters for more than 5 minutes, and they seemed dead set on making the viewer dislike everyone. Even the little Hispanic guy, who originally had the most healthy relationship than anyone, ended up cheating on his wife with a skank he met in a strip club.

Though the final season was slightly redeeming, it was too late. I felt more relieved by the surprise death of one of the characters in the season, though annoyingly they were still making appearances. I struggled to give this highly overrated disaster of a TV show 2 stars.

I love the series but whomever made the DVDs did so poorly because the one I got was supposed to be new and yet kept skipping and had scratches. Ended up sending I back and didn't get a full refund because it was "open." If a product doesn't work correctly, it should be fixed.

Six Feet Under is one of my favorite shows and it completely changed my outlook on life. It's depressing as hell but it's funny and poignant. I recommend this show to anyone.
I've been waiting a pretty long time for the price of the bigger box set to go down and I regret not buying it when Amazon was selling it for about $88. Now it's discontinued which I'm really frustrated about. If you try to buy the bigger box set anywhere else it's at least $95. Anyway, I got the newer slim box set and I like how they put it together into this one book of dvds. It's great if you like saving space. The pictures are nice but some of dvds came out scratched. SCRATCHED. I was pissed off as hell. I didn't do anything to them. I just took them out carefully and there were a couple of scratches on some of them.
So I'm pretty sure they were scratched before I got the box set. So far, most of the scratched dvds played out fine except for a couple. So if you're looking to buy the complete series of Six Feet Under, I absolutely do NOT recommend the newer slim box set. It's not worth it. Really. Instead, get the older box set. I would.

The first season of Six Feet Under featured astonishing acting/writing/directing, and was a truly and amazing new show. However, the show began to lag part way into the second season. It lost its witty death related humor, and began to lose the format of the original shows. The decline of the second season culminated in a cliché cliff hanger, typical of shows that don't know how to maintain interest. Season three starts with a confusing premier which includes a massive jump in time that ejects the viewer out of the show, and further illustrates the writers' budding ability NOT to deal with tough issues. By season four the show has fully declined into a rather lame and incongruent night time soap, with the standard love triangles, mystery deaths, and psychics. They have also managed to fully lose their format, that of the beginning death dictating the tone of the show. One of the episodes starts with a death based on an anti-LSD agenda, and after the first scene they completely ignore the issues and the kid who died. I'm pretty sure Fisher Sons and Diaz didn't even embalm the guy. At some point the massive amount of useless sex they have added to the show, and the extended kidnapping episodes become nothing more than unpredictable and uninteresting. If you enjoy the first season of Six Feet Under, quit while you are ahead. However, if you enjoy shows like Alias, Lost, and Days of Our Lives, with their cliff hangers, disjointed action, and love octagons, then i would advise you to PARTY ON!, and enjoy the last few seasons.

BOTTOM LINE: If you are looking for good TV, the kind where pain, humor, and love dance in a similar fashion to life, watch the first season and don't waist time on the rest. If you just love characters no matter how strange they are written, continue by all means; the plot doesn't get worse, just the writing acting and directing.

PORN FACTOR: By season four people are just having random sex, and the story lines seem to be a little better then bottom of the barrel porn. So, i guess, good soft core porn for the win!
