Dead Like Me

From the mind of Bryan Fuller, who created one of my other favorite least watched shows on tv, Wonderfalls, comes Dead Like Me. Dead Like Me lasted on Showtime for two seasons until more recently they filmed a direct to DVD movie.

Watching the two seasons of this show back to back has made this one of my favorite shows. It has it all, humor, drama, joy, tears...everything you can want in a tv show. And a great cast of characters. The show stars Ellen Muth as George, a young woman who is killed at the age of 18 and recurited in the life (or unlife as it may be) of a Reaper. Reapers collect the souls of the dying. Watching George grow in her new role and actually grow up, something she never did before her death was fascinating.

While there was still unanswered questions the last show actually tied up the show pretty nicely. And it ended with a great last line. I haven't watched the movie yet, I hope it doesn't take away from the show.

If you get a chance this is really I show I can't reccomend highly enough. The first two seasons are out on DVD, as is the movie, or you can buy all three in a specially priced set. It's worth it.
