Critic Consensus: Six Feet Under's third season dials down the comedy in favor of creepier narratives -- a challenge its cast is more than up to.

Critic Reviews for Six Feet Under Season 3

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

Right after the opening credits are over, you'll be hooked, and stunned, and strapped in for another amazing ride.

Nov 17, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A riveting season of the show.

Nov 7, 2017 | Full Review…

There's something fascinating, even thrilling, about the defiant unlovability of these characters. Which is why you end up loving them despite themselves.

Jun 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Six Feet Under jettisons much of its quirky humor, becoming increasingly erratic, morbid and terrifying, an entropic drift dragging the characters apart even as they walk along together, one foot in the grave.

Nov 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Though not without its flaws, [The Opening] is another strong episode that shows how well Six Feet Under dealt with very real issues that often get swept under the rug, especially in an effort to preserve a relationship.

Nov 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Season Three is technically pitch-perfect.

Sep 25, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

There is no more satisfying or surprising series anywhere on television.

Jan 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Six Feet Under continues to be heroically smart, tender and witty while finding dark fun in formaldehyde in the early weeks of the show's third season.

Nov 6, 2017 | Full Review…

We witness the emotional arc of a dead man who exists only in the memories and projections of the living. Somehow, [Richard] Jenkins nails this every time.

Nov 6, 2017 | Full Review…
Top Critic

... the early episodes of Season 3 abound in Six Feet Under's trademark qualities-complexity, humor and humanity.

Audience Reviews for Six Feet Under: Season 3

Season 3 was a bit slow. We see a lot of heartbreaks as the Fischer family had to adjust to their new situations as well as various characters are all having issues waiting to be resolved. The hallucination were actually really interesting this time round.
