Dead Like Me (TV Series 2003-2004)



Dead Like Me is a dark comedy that was made in 2003 to 2004. In total 29 episodes and a very forgettable movie. The series is worth watching, I would avoid the movie that was made a few years later.

The series focuses on George, a girl who was killed by toilet seat from space. This was during her lunch break from her new job. When she dies, she soon discovers that the after life isn’t all that is cracked up to be. She then discovers that she has to be a grim reaper.  The grim reapers job is to extract the souls of the living, just before people die.

They are given their assignments by Rube Sofer (Mandy Patinkin). All the reapers have to make a living, any way possible. This includes such work as a junior office clerk, a parking inspector and a petty criminal.

Overall if cult TV is your thing, this show is worth watching. A friend of mine recommended it and I have enjoyed the series.
