The HBO television series SIX FEET UNDER, about the members of a dynamic Los Angeles-based family that operates the Fisher and Sons Funeral Home, has an ironically grim, but intriguing premise: each episode is based on the death and extenuating circumstances of the family's current client. When a porno star dies and is brought to Fischer and Sons, an entourage of her former costars appear to mourn her death. In another episode, the family must negotiate with tough Mexican-American gang members who have very specific requests for the funeral of one of their brethren. A sassy drama that is rife with black comedy, SIX FEET UNDER follows other HBO hit series like SEX IN THE CITY, THE SOPRANOS, and OZ. Alan Ball created the hit series after scoring a huge success with his original screenplay for AMERICAN BEAUTY. Ball has written and directed several of the 13 episodes that comprise this first season.

Pros: Best Drama on TV - Hands down - Fascinating on many levels     Cons: None     The Bottom Line: Superb, well acted - a real winner!     Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie's plot. What a stellar first season. This is a premier drama that only shows on HBO. A drama that resides in a home mortuary - how original and compelling is that! Even though death is a major theme, it never comes across as ghoulish.   …
