So my wife and I started watching Dead Like Me on Video On Demand, and were both so caught up in it that we didn't want to wait for the second season to be made available that way... so we ordered the box set.
The box set *includes* "Life After Death", the movie MGM made in 2008.
Let me start with the DVDs of the ShoTime TV series:
Disks 1 through 4 contain the series pilot, and the 14 episodes of season 1.
Disks 5 through 8 contain the 15 episodes of season 2 and the bonus features for the series.
Up through here, that's 5 stars. If I could have give 6, I would.
Disk 9... contains the straight-to-DVD movie.
If you're interested in DLM and reading this review (and the many others), I don't have to tell much about the series - they stand firm as they always did, in high, widescreen quality, uncensored and uncut (and the bonus features contain a bunch of deleted scenes and other fun stuff about the series.
The movie, though. Oh dear lord, the movie.
The movie was made to appeal to an audience that is not in the know about what DLM is about - so the first 15, 20 minutes are an introduction (with cuts from the series), done in comic-book style, with Georgia Lass (Ellen Muth) narrating about what the premise of the story is. After the introductions are done, we're introduced to a flaky storyline about Rube (Mandy Patinkin, direly missed in the movie) having gotten his light, and having been replaced by a Cameron Kane (played by Henry Ian Cusick), who... has... some sort of agenda, plan, whatever, and uses the merry band of reapers to... cause chaos... or something, by having them mess up their reaps.

The brand new movie, Dead Like Me: Life After Death (see my separate review there), however, is not. To say I was disappointed by it would be an understatement. As films go, it is complete junk.
However, buying the set is still very much a worthwhile purchase if, like me, you didn't already own the DVD sets for the TV series's two seasons. The series itself is great fun to watch, beautifully written and acted, with characters that have depth; for this reason, I've given a five-star rating, as this is the best way to obtain this excellent series on DVD. But the movie is a jarring contrast: badly written, with characters whose previous complexities have been thrown out the window, and a mind-numbingly, painfully stupid plot.
George is slowly but surely trained in the ways of a Reaper by a merry band of reapers:
Rubin, the father of the family who doles out post it notes with the time and place where the reaping will be
Roxy, the tough mother figure with a fiery temper who works as a meter maid (later a police officer)
Mason, the teenage rebel who goofs off and has a weakness for sex, drugs, alcohol, and law breaking
Betty, the spirited wild-child who disappears midway through the first season
Daisy, the devious starlet who likes to scheme to make money with minimum effort
And the rules are for the most part well-established in this show (excluding the movie, which seems to decide it can ignore all of the rules for no good reason). George slowly but surely learns the rules and the consequences of their job, though that doesn't keep her from fighting her position as a Reaper wherever she can
The most mundane thing in life declaring the end of someone's life.Read more ›
No Closed Captioning!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you have already purchased season 1 and season 2 seperately then there is no need to get this set. You would be better off just purchasing the movie because there is nothing special about the box set.
This show is grim reapers at their best.

Quickly became my absolute favorite series in my collection! Dark humor and extremely well done. Profanity took a little getting used to, however.Published 8 months ago by Kathy Caggianelli
An excellent show with a great original concept and wonderful cast. There are no bad episodes, as each is filled with imagination, satire and dark, dark humor.

I did enjoy all of these but knocked off a couple of stars for the constant use of the "F" word. It just wasn't necessary to have it appear in so much of the dialogue. Read morePublished 11 months ago by old&gray

|Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls on Blu-ray?? Please?||
A. Mueller is dead wrong. The show was shot in HD and is still shown in HD on The Sci-Fi Channel. Furthermore, it was also shown unedited and in HD on HDNet.
