Six Feet Under (2001-2005) is a provocative drama about a family that runs a funeral home. It's funny, sexy, tragic and deep, and I don't think there's ever been a series quite like it. The writing and production values were top of line, and the cast, led by Peter Krause and Michael C. Hall, was just outstanding. If you've never seen it, I urge you to give it a try.

Just so you know: it ran on HBO and is seriously R-rated for sexual situations as well as dead stuff.
