"I have seen this show a few times and really enjoyed it but I never bought Six Feet Under - The Complete Series Gift Set since it was quite expensive and I was waiting for the price to go down.
This new set is cheaper ($67 - the old one is now discontinued). All 24 dvds are hosted in a book you can flip with one disk per spread (made of cardboard with glossy inner pockets - Similar to HBO Rome complete DVD set). It's a third of the size comparing to the original boxset.
The 2 CD soundtrack is not included in this boxset."
Do not buy this

"Do not buy this collection! Apparently HBO is releasing a REAL complete series set for just 280 bucks, that includes a new booklet (Obituaries), a family tree, and the 2 soundtracks that were released. It's coming out October 31!"
One of the best Series in TV history

"Six Feet Under is one of the best series I have seen. It combines humor, philosophy, psychology, irony, and entertainment in a very unique way--unlike any other show I have seen.
I discovered this show half way through its airing and am grateful to have the entire set to view from the beginning and in order.
I don't know why they took away the audio CD's in this set vs. the old set--however, they are not the reason I wanted the series and I would not be that disappointed to not have them. They can be purchased separately if you are serious about having the music.
While there is at least one death at the beginning of the show and the show takes place mostly in a funeral home, there is plenty of humor, excitement, entertainment. There is (as with many HBO shows also a lot of language and sex). Every show is very well done but since there is a storyline of following the family, it is best to watch in order. The finale is the best finale i've ever seen on TV.
The deleted scenes and extras make this set even more fun to watch than the original shows.
Definitely worth the money and time and best of all this new set is less expensive and takes up less space."
The legacy of Six Feet Under

"I chose to review the whole series instead of one season in particular because for me owning or watching one or two season is like watching half of a movie. The reason is simple, it may be true that the two first seasons are the most entertaining and funny but for a character development series like this, the third season is the year that Alan Ball starts focusing more on each character instead of giving us a bigger picture like the two firsts seasons. Now we know about the technic aspects of the mortuary profession and in my opinion what's to come is more cerebral and complex because we know the surface of the characters and now we start entering their minds and we become more attached to them. What is wonderful about this series is that the character development lasts about 60 hours (5 seasons) so if well made, it's way better than a movie that gives us 2 hours of that and it is, in deed, well made. I love every season of this wonderful series and I think the payoff at the end of the 5th season is nothing less than a masterpiece of tv making. The last 3 episodes of season 5 are simply sublime and I've never felt so much emotions for a fictionnal work in my life. Some movies or books move me but when you live with these people for 5 years, they become almost like family. Another thing I like is that the series felt more cinematic than anything I've seen before, the visual is quite special for television and it made me think about silent movies a lot which I am a fan of. So I recommand 6FU to everybody because another great thing of the series is that character from every generation is developped from teenage to old age. I would say though that young teenagers may find it too complex and older people too offensive but if you're from 30 to 50 years old and you like character development and the visual aspect of movie making to make a point, you will love six feet under. This series will become a classic because it broke so many barriers and people will talk about it in 200 years. It's expensive but if you can afford it, it's a great document to have. Now 3 little complaints, there's not enough extras, the first 2 seasons are not widescreen and no english subtitles in season 1 , only spanish???? Apart from that, it's perfect."
