I just finished watching the first season of Dead Like Me, a comedy about a girl who dies when she gets hit by a Toilet seat from the re-entering Russian space station Mir.
This lucky girl is Georgia (George) Lass, a Teenager who just dropped out of college and on the first day on a job she hates, but death is a little special for that girl who unlike other person won’t go through the “normal process” of dying, instead she will be recruited to become a Grim Reaper, a job she also hates, and that’s not it, she also has to get a normal job because Grim Reapers do not get an income from that job.
I liked watching the show, it’s different from other TV series, you don’t get a lot of action but you don’t get bored watching it, every character has a different background and a different personality and all of them have to cope with each others to get the jobs done, a job that could last for decade with no breaks and no vacations.
Another thing worth mentioning is the Music, it is very well chosen for every part of the series, a little unusual sometimes but always nice.
My score for this series will be 3.5/5, because even if you don’t get bored by the story, some episodes need a little more action in my opinion.
Note that MGM is currently working on a Direct-to-DVD Movie sequel of Dead Like Me.
