A new series about LIFE...the After life!

When a rogue toilet-seat falls from the MIR space station, hitting and killing 18 year-old George Lass, she discovers that death is nothing like she thought it would be... Bestowed with the powers of a Grim Reaper, George sets about collecting the souls of others before they die - not without some reluctance!

Initiated into this secretive society of soul collectors, George eventually comes to terms with the ghoulish duties with which she has been assigned with the help of her new boss, Rube. She must, however, reconcile certain unresolved issues which still linger from her life among the living before she is allowed to 'move on'.

 A Worthwhile Purchase

George Lass is going nowhere in life until she is killed by a toilet-seat that falls from the MIR space station. Finding herself with the powers of a Grim Reaper she reluctantly sets about collecting the souls of others before they die. With guidance from her new boss, Rube, she gradually accepts her new role but must resolve issues which still linger from her life before she is allowed to 'move on'.

The pilot episode did a very good job of setting up the shows premise and the following episodes were entertaining as George attempted to adjust to her new role. The other reapers she was tasked to work with were a mixed bunch but Mandy Patinkin was excellent as the droll Rube and Jasmine Guy entertaining as the Sassy Roxy. While there were poignant moments throughout this first season the show was played mostly for laughs. On the whole it was mostly successful at crafting its own brand of black comedy and, while it will never be considered a classic, certainly made worthwhile viewing.

My wife got me into dead like me when it was being shown on the sci fi channel, Promptly bought the box sets, Fantastic series pity they stopped it, Flims not as good as series but worth a look if you are a true fan. Bring back the reapers i miss them..

 Weird, but Wonderful...

Georgia Lass is a frustrated and unhappy girl. She hates her job, hasn't got any friends, cannot communicate with her family and just doesn't seem to fit in. And this is after she's died! Dead Like Me is a quirky, off-beat, totally original, bittersweet series about life after death. Ellen Muth is a revelation as Georgia; juggling the mundanity of her office job with her often heartbreaking role as a grim reaper. With an extraordinary cast and stories that will make you laugh and cry, this is a series as poignant and perceptive as it is unusual and funny. Watch it and become addicted.

After watching the first two series I am just itching for more. I hope they dont cancel after ony a few series.

This series has scope for a lot more and possoibly a film or two.
