    Has the kind of verve and wit that's the hallmark of shows where the writers aren't thinking about audience reaction or how the network bigs will view it -- it's a story that just pours out, with the audacity to say, "Take me or leave me."

    The bizarre causes of death on the show—woman gets hit by falling piano, guy accidentally drills hole in his head—are indicative of its self-conscious quirkiness.

The actingThis was a great T.V series with a witty, yet cynical sense of humor. It unfortunately got cancelled after only a mere two seasons. The acting is well done with very lovable characters. I would not recommend the movie, as it is nothing like the series and is completely disappointing! Full Review »

    Dead Like Me was one of the first shows that I watched that showed me that tv really could be a vehicle for interesting and complex stories.Dead Like Me was one of the first shows that I watched that showed me that tv really could be a vehicle for interesting and complex stories. It just takes the right person to do it and this show was full of a lot of those people. The story arcs were so original that I'm surprised it lasted for two seasons. This is the sort of thing that I imagine now would thrive in a Netflix like utopia. I would definitely recommend it for it's interesting take on death and the dry cynical wit. Beyond anything else it is memorable. Full Review »
