Rated 5 out of 5 by from How this show was cancelled, I'll never know... I fell in love with this show right from the very first ten minutes (story of of frog and toad). Moving, side-splitting funny, and all around witty and believable characters make for a very enjoyable show. So sad this only lasted two seasons. I cannot wait for the movie coming out in 2009! (Direct to DVD)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly enjoyable! This quirky show is about a young woman who gets killed by a toilet seat that fell to earth from a space station. The show focuses on Georgia, or George as she is known to her friends, and a cast of others. Georgia and the others are "Reapers" and their job is to take the souls out of people just before they (violently) die. Georgia and the others also have to hold down regular jobs and pay bills just like the living. Most of the show takes place in a diner where the group of Reapers eat and talk. An endearing part of the show is where the segments show how Georgia's family is coping with her death. Ellen Muth and Mandy Patinkin are supberb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring Back Good TV It only took one episode for me to get hooked to this tv series. But by then it was too late. It had already been unceremoniously cancelled. A real shame because the show had great writing, fantastic acting and a touching concept. All of which sure usurps many of the shows seen on tv today; funnier than the banal dumb-dad comedies and more engaging than the ubiquitous crime dramas dotting primetime. Luckily we can all relive (ha ha) this show through the DVDs. Season 1 and Season 2. Gone before its time... RIP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another show cancelled too soon This was a great series with a unique twist. Following the day-to-day lives of Grim Reapers. I enjoyed all the characters and the storylines. Maybe it was too morbid, maybe it was the network, I don't know, but this show deserved many more years. Mandy Patinkin is one of the finest actors around and Ellen Muth played her character perfectly. Sexy, yet bitter & sarcastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quirky and Awesome Dead Like Me has (unlike its title) loads of life. The humor is often both slapstick and multilayered. You can watch an episode a number of times and come away with different meanings on life, death, work and family. It is a series that is laden with sarcasm about everyday people and things and yet touches on very deep matters - like "What is Beyond the Realm of Life" It seems that according to this series-- even Death does not know. In all I would highly recommend this tv. series to anyone with an offbeat sense of humour and an open mind about life and death!
