This episode, the first one of the series, is simply great. I began
watching it a few days ago, and I think this is one of the greatest
things there have been in television. The pilot episode doesn't get
boring at any time, and keeps you awaiting for what happens in the next
The characters are probably among the best I have seen in a television program. It reminds you of the film "American Beauty", also written by Alan Ball. The freak mother, with their sons: the runaway, the repressed one, the teenage girl. The initial situation (the death of the father), unleashes one situation after the other, told in an excellent way, and the inclusions of phony ads makes way for the laughs, although there are several moments that will make you laugh. The performances can't get better, neither the script.
The pilot episodes mostly normal and tells the show is about what and
what we are going to watch.
But the pilot of Six Feet Under is totally changes that idea. First of all the scene where Ruth screams after finds out her husband's dead. I was shocked and said to myself this is not a normal show. And i was totally right the black comedy and the emotional funeral scene of Nathaniel Fisher was one of the most beautiful things i've seen on the show.
If you're planning to watch the show you're about to watch an amazing pilot episode, believe me. 10/10.

Simply put, this was one of the best Pilot's I've ever seen. Never has
a show ever been able to put itself on track so quickly as "Six Feet
Under" did here. A lot of credit goes to the performances which were
simply brilliant. There were a lot of laughs, thrills and dramatic
pieces set throughout which isn't something you often see episode 1 of
The irony of death is what makes this first episode so fantastic. The family is brought together by the death of their father, who had previously run a family owned funeral home. So this in particular episode revolves around death, within a death. The script was rarely shoddy, and often quick witted which is why I easily can give it 9*.
