Six Feet Under - 1x01 Six Feet Under (Pilot)

Six Feet Under (Pilot)

Los Angeles, Christmas Eve, Nathaniel Fisher, owner of the Fisher and Sons Funeral Home, is killed when a municipal bus broadsides his new hearse. The tragedy casts a pall on the holiday homecoming of son Nate (who works for an organic food co-op in Seattle), as he must not only deal with the death of a father, but the fragile egos of mother Ruth (who has been having a secret affair with her hairdresser, Hiram), brother David (a closet homosexual seeing a black policeman named Keith), and a sister Claire (a rebellious high-schooler who receives the bad news after dropping crystal meth with new boyfriend Gabe). The only good thing to happen to Nate is Brenda, a passionate women he met on the plane, just before learning of his father's death. At home, David eschews the talents of his young mortician, Fredrico, to personally undo the damage of his dad's accident. The ensuing funeral leaves the family's deepest emotions exposed, and calls into question some of our more absurd rites of passage. At the gravesite, David is not amused by the advances of Matthew Gilardi of Kroehner Service Corporation, a funeral- home conglomerate looking to buy out the Fishers business. As for senior Nathaniel, he may have been laid to rest- but has plenty left to reveal to his family.

Deserves a much higher rating. One of the best pilots I have seen.

I'm glad you found something to enjoy. Just keep in mind what I said to Lemon. The show slows down a lot. It is a grind. It is worth it though.

I look forward to hearing what you all think of the final few episodes. You still have quite a ways to go, but it is worth the trip.

@ColeFrost This has been on my list for a while and your comment just bumped it *way* up.

@Lemon

The format changes a bit after the pilot. You'll notice the differences. It is one of the best shows ever, though.

Fair warning... It gets slow, really slow. It's worth sticking with it. In my opinion, it has the best finale that I ever have seen. The ending was written right from the beginning of the show.

This is the same guy who won an Oscar for writing American Beauty and that created/writes/occasionally directs True Blood.

Quite a good pilot :) Maybe a bit too slow paced but I guess it comes with the subject ...
