12. Six Feet Under (2001-2005)

5 Seasons

Created by Alan Ball

Starring Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Frances Conroy, Lauren Ambrose, Freddy Rodriguez, Mathew St. Patrick, Rachel Griffiths, Jeremy Sisto, James Cromwell, Justina Machado

Created by Alan Ball, Six Feet Under tells the stories of the Fisher family, who happen to be the owners of a funeral home in Los Angeles.

Sounds depressing, right? Well, it is at times, but the show has elements of a dark comedy and doesn’t stay too true to the typical arc of a drama series.

Six Feet Under is often recognized as one of the best TV shows ever made. On top of that, fans and critics actually enjoyed the series finale, which is pretty rare for a TV series, honestly.

Six Feet Under won three Golden Globes over its four-year run, including Best Drama Series and two Best Supporting Actress for Rachel Griffiths and Frances Conroy in different years. The series also won nine Emmys.
