    We all know shows like Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Shield, et al. get high praise, but I rarely see 6 Feet Under listed in the same echelon of other greats. Plus unlike Breaking Bad or True Detective 6 Feet Under had a classic finale.

    I would say the leftovers is one of the most under watched series. It's episodes are always highly rated but it seems like no one watches it.

    Same can be said about Hannibal, s2 finale was rated as one of the greatest drama episodes ever by a couple reviewers but no one watched.

    It's not underrated. Most who have seen it agree that it is one of the finest dramas ever made. Oh', and one that didn't fuck it's ending up either.

    It's just not as hyped up as the others, because it's a straight up family drama. It's core subject matter doesn't perk the senses up like the other notable dramas. It's still amazing.

    Season 3 kind of sucked though.

    The show's been off the air for over 11 years now. Hasn't had a home video release for 10 years now. It was a successful show in every way, but there's no hype behind it at this point.

    Alan Ball is terrible and his shows are horrifically overrated.

    That show was incredibly intense.

    I don't watch tv any more, but when that was on I used to tune in every week. That and Oz.

    I don't recall the finale, tho. I wonder if I saw it.

    I don't think it's underrated. It just wasn't really popular. Not everything that's good catches on with a wider audience.

    The finale was amazing. You would remember it if you saw it.

    I just watched it, I don't recall seeing that. I might have to go back and watch the final season.

    Unbelievable that was over 10 years ago. I was 23 then. Actually, that was when I moved away from home so that may be why I missed it.

    I would only put The Shield, Deadwood and Hannibal above it.

    I agree its not underrated. Everybody who has seen it agrees that its one of the best dramas ever made, the thing is the series at this point is kinda old and it came out at a time when the praise for TV series that exists nowadays wasnt really there yet.

    It would be underrated if people whos seen it wouldnt be sure about how good it was, but like I said every time a thread about 6 feet under starts pretty much everybody agrees its one of the best series ever

    AND.... I dont think anybody has mentioned this yet on this thread so I will be first.... it is one of the best, if not the best, ending of a TV series in TV history

    Only Life on Mars (UK) and The Shield had better finales.

    Doesn't get credit he deserves. Wish he would come and do Dexter again.
