This show has the best finale I have ever seen! While the show does have its points where it gets boring, the ending made it all worth it! Very well done!


if you have not watched this show, you're doing something terribly wrong


The finale was so powerful. Best I've ever seen. God, I love this show!


I watched the finale 48 hours ago, and it won't came of out of my mind.. The series is perfect, but the finale beyond describe, it leaves you speechless, drowning in your tears.. With all do respect, Breaking Bad, Six Feet Under is the best show ever..


"That ending was such a cheap trick," he said through tears


This is not about death. It's about finding life amidst all of the death. With a dash of magical-realism and complex, interesting characters, it's simply one of the best series I have ever had the pleasure of watching.


Incredibly powerful and emotional with one the best finales of any show ever.


After 4 1/2 Seasons i think it's a great show! 9/10. Can't wait to see the next episodes.


the first few episodes.. you have to really bite through... When you've met all the characters it gets better and after the third episode you just have to watch the next one..


Of all the shows I've seen (and I have finished several), Six Feet Under has, by far, the best ending I have ever seen. There are just no two ways about it. Whether we're talking about the last three episodes or the 8-9 minute coda at the end of the finale, either way the show went out on top.
