    Best series ever. Brilliant writing, acting, and directing. If you haven’t seen this you’re really missing out.

    Perfect mix of dark comedy and drama. And it’s one of those shows where if you miss a single episode you will be lost.

    I think u r full of **** first of all the characters r supposed to be messed up what part of ‘disfunctional family’ dont u understand and the character development in this series is the best few shows come even close to this.Also its the best acting I have seen in a series trust me I have seen a lot and also beautifully created and it connects to u on a emmotional level and True Blood is not remotely close to this one of the worst HBO shows so there it is

      How exactly am I fos? I said all the characters were f**ked up in their own way aznd you said they are supposed to be messed up. Your accusation doesn’t make sense. You are accusing me of stating fact? I didn’t say anything about the acting and wtf are you tyalking about True blood? Now you are fos dude.I noticed you didn’t comment on some stuff I did say, wonder why.

    I just got through watching the entire series from start to finish. Honetly I would give the entire series a 7 out of 10. It was adult rated of course being on HBO, but it was soooo depressing though. I mean really wow. I know death is depressing but f**k me. Honestly I’m not sure it was truly cut short. Maybe, maybe not. But the show was decent enough for me to recomend it to people that aren’t planning to commit sucide honestly. I mean every character was f**ked up in their own way. Especially Peter Krause and Micheal C. Hall’s characters. Definetly different from True Blood. I mean Six Feet Under is an apple and True Blood is a strawberry. I honestly believe that True Blood could beat Sixfeet under any day of the week. No matter what mood your in True Blood would be the better choice to watch. So in short Six Feet under was good not great. Maybe I would have thought it was better if someone else played Ben Foster’s character, or if Rainn Wilson and Ed Begley Jr. had bigger roles maybe. I just thought I would share my thoughts on this series. If anyone agrees or diagrees, I welcome your input. You wanna say “F**k you”, “I agree completely” or somewhere in between I welcome your comments. I’m just a big TV fan that would like to know what you think.
