Six Feet Under: Season 4 - Rotten Tomatoes

Six Feet Under: Season 4 (2004)




Critic Consensus: Six Feet Under overreaches in its fourth season, with twists and story arcs that feel more contrived than compelling, though its willingness to venture boldly into the dark also proves occasionally exhilarating.

Critic Reviews for Six Feet Under: Season 4

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

The characters of Six Feet Under seem to have absorbed the funereal atmosphere of their surroundings all too well, and they and the story are sinking together into a perpetually glum morass.

March 13, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Season Four forges on, sure-footedly, in the virtuoso standard the series set way back in season one.

But in a show whose ethos has been strongly tied to how we can't have the answers to everything, Untitled feels like Six Feet Under trying desperately to suggest the opposite.

At this rate, Ball is lucky his HBO colleague David Milch has snagged the phrase "Deadwood," or I'd be suggesting it as "Six Feet Under"'s new alternate title.

Nothing is certain on Six Feet Under, except death and, of course.

It's unsurprising many viewers felt abused, and taken for a ride. But there's something thrilling, too, about creators willing to jeopardize their unspoken contract with their audience: to risk our loyalty in the name of something new.

Audience Reviews for Six Feet Under: Season 4


Season 4 continues from the happy ending of season 3 with a lot of misery. I am glad the Lisa mystery is finally resolved, David overcame his fear and Claire discovered her talent, while Ruth deals with an increasingly unstable George.
