Six Feet Under: The Complete Seasons 1 & 2
From Alan Ball, the Oscar-winning writer of American Beauty, comes a series that digs where others fear to tread.
When a bus kills Nathaniel Fisher, owner of the Fisher & Sons Funeral Home in Los Angeles, the tragedy casts a pall on the homecoming of his prodigal son Nate. Together with his mother Ruth, brother David and sister Claire, they must address the family business, and the many more personal matters that arise when you spend your life Six Feet Under.
When death is your business, what is your life? For Nate, David, Ruth and Claire, the world outside the Fisher & Sons Funeral Home continues to be at least as challenging-and far less predictable-as the one inside.
