    • Omg loved it

      9.5
      Watched this show after I've seen Dexter so I'm a fan only because of mr Hall. He's just great. I do admit there are just too many unnecessary sex scenes throughout the show but i guess some audience needs it. Rico got on my nerves the entire show. Everyone else was interesting to watch and learn about. I cried the last episode. How surreal and after watching enrire 5 seasons first time ever made me wonder how will i die? The last scenes were epic!moreless
    • Just now watching

      5.5
      Loved the first 3 seasons but rapidly deteriorated after that. Brenda is a complete horrible character and someone said before, I disliked her in Brother's and Sisters and now you can add Six Feet Under as another bust for her. Loved MC Hall and loved Dexter but I agree, enough gay already. After season 3 it's like they really scrambled for material and threw a bunch of crap together and called it Six Feet Undermoreless
    • Great Show except all the GAY CRAP and Brenda

      8.5
      Watched all seasons of this show, loved it all except the constant need to show the ACCEPTANCE of GAY lifestyle. They really tried to make GAY look cool. Plus Brenda, that actress is horrible. I could not stand her in this show, nor her role in ABC Brother's and Sisters, now she is on some stupid show about a camp. She whines, and is soooooo not attractive. This show was dark, and deep, but GREAT!moreless
    • Life is full of Ups and Downs

      8.5
      I started watching this after completing the DEXTER series as i'm a great fan of Michael C. Hall.

      It was strange for me to see him play a gay character, that too very well.

      The story started right from the 1st episode when Nathaniel Fisher dies, and the burden of maintaining the business is now dropped on to the Fisher sons.

      All the characters are very well made and portrayed. I personally loved Brenda and Claire. Former being very smart, and the latter struggling with the daily schooling which is the case of many.

      It is full of family drama which is not the case of many soaps running currently, i guess none. Very rarely such a soap is made so full of family drama.

      Won't be liked by people who love thrillers, but will be liked to the core who love drama especially familymoreless
    • Simply the greatest television show to ever grace the screen.

      9.5
      I firmly believe this to be true, and don't think it has much competition. The only reason I did not give it a ten is because I'd like to assume the "perfect" television show has yet to be created. Either way, the Fishers are perfectly developed in every way. No show delves deeper into it's characters, side characters included. Every person: Ruth, Nate, David, Claire, Brenda, Keith, Russell, Lisa, etc, fill their roles as well as they possibly could; especially the first five. This and the relevancy of everything that takes place in the lives of these characters makes watching this show an incredible, enlightening and tragically beautiful experience. Six Feet Under is truly the mirror of humanity.moreless
