Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
American Beauty's Oscar-winning screenwriter Alan Ball continues his career-defining exploration of society's misfits and oddballs in this superbly written and brilliantly acted HBO series, the second season of which continues the development of the principals and introduces several vividly drawn supporting characters. Season 2 unfolds -- like its predecessor -- largely within the confines of the Fisher & Sons Funeral Home in Los Angeles. The Fisher matriarch, Ruth (Frances Conroy), clings desperately to emotional stability, while her gay son, David (Michael C. Hall), grapples with the problems attendant on coming out of the closet. His younger sister, Claire (Lauren Ambrose), still unsure of her place in the world, also wrestles with relationship problems. The second season swings its spotlight to prodigal son Nate (Peter Krause, the show's nominal leading man), whose old girlfriend Lisa (Lili Taylor) turns up to further complicate his life. This 13-episode cycle also acquaints the viewer with Ruth's beatnik sister, Sarah (Patricia Clarkson), who has her own take on the weirdness that pervades Fisher & Sons. Also serving as executive producer and director, Ball employs his trademark dramatic irony and dark humor in these ferociously funny, and occasionally poignant, explorations of the mysteries of life and death. Yes, death: The Grim Reaper always casts his pall over the show, and corpses abound in all their grisly glory. More often than not, though, Ball and his writers find creative ways to stick it to the man with the scythe -- and their efforts make for some of the most amazing episodes in TV history.

I watched this series from the very first episode to the very last. I couldn't believe they ended it! It was an excellent show in my opinion. Be sure to start with the first season and you won't beleive how the fifth season ends. It blew my mind!
