Dead Like Me

Dead Like Me was a two season Showtime series that aired 2003 and 2004 and was created by Bryan Fuller (who created my present favorite television series Pushing Daisies and co-created Wonderfalls). Dead Like Me is a dark comedy-drama about grim reapers.

I didn't watch Dead Like Me when it aired originlly because I didn't have Showtime, but I had heard good things about the show and meant to check it out at some point. It was Pushing Daisies (and realizing that Bryan Fuller was the creator of both shows) that made me finally get around to getting the two seasons of Dead Like Me. The pilot episode is two hours in length, with the rest of the episodes being the standard hour in length. The show gets going right away and I think that if you like the first episode you'll like the rest (and I was totally sold on the show by the end of the pilot when they used one of my favorite songs during the closing scene). I'm only on episode six and think the show has good character progressions and I especially am looking forward to what ultimately happens with the central character's family.
