A darkly comical look at members of a dysfunctional family that runs an funeral home.
HBO original fresh series and completely different than any other. In the season opener the crew of this funeral home is dealing of the death of one of their own. Fisher and sons had big plan that his elder son learns the family business so he can continue on. But instead he cuts out of town and decided to work for a supermarket as a produce manager in Seattle. Yeah I remember working for a supermarket I can’t remember the name……no still can’t remember the name of it; oh! well it ‘ll come back to me sooner or later. Actually when I was watching the series I was working in the produce department. You have the mother Ruth and Frederico reconstructive “artist”, Federico (Freddy Rodriguez). Daughter Claire (Lauren Ambrose), a rebellious high schooler who’d rather do drugs and get in to trouble more than anything else. Now they have to deal with one of their own their father who got killed by a bus on route to pick up a body by the airport. How the family Fisher will grieve one of their own? What will happen to the family business? A great series that one would enjoy.
