Editorial Reviews

Dead Like Me: The Complete 2nd Season. 15 episodes on 4 discs. nnProving that "reapers are anything but grim company" (The Plain Dealer) this "deliciously dark comedy about the afterlife" (Newsday) returns for "a second season as strong as its first" (Philadelphia Daily News) with guest appearances by Eric McCormack ("Will & Grace") and Gavin DeGraw. Thanks to breakout start Ellen Muths "prickly charm," "Dead Like Me" has "an amusingly odd and touching energy all its own" (Detroit Free Press). nnAfter more than a year as a grim reaper, George (Muth) has realized that being a teenager in the afterlife is as complex as in real life. There are still unrequited crushes, agonizing dilemmas and the occasional bad attitude. Along with her kooky co-reapers Daisy (Laura Harris), Mason (Callum Blue), Roxy (Jasmine Guy) and Rube (Mandy Patinkin), George struggles to collect souls while managing her own awkward development...into a mature reaper!

July 2007 Update!!!!!! There is going to be a movie! So the first sentence in my original review below turns out to be inaccurate. Star Ellen Muth goes so far as to hint that that a renewal of the series might be possible. Details are still forthcoming and apart from the movie (and I'm sorry, I don't know if this is a TV, a direct-to-DVD, or theatrical release) nothing definite is known about the chances of the series being revived, but this is definitely good news. There is some recasting. Mandy Patinkin, unfortunately, will not be back as Rube nor will Laura Harris as Daisy. It appears Rube's character is being replaced by a new head reaper, while a new actress will be playing Daisy. Otherwise all the other actors will be back.

Tragically, this will be the final season of DEAD LIKE ME that we will get. Although there is currently a campaign being waged to rescue the show, these campaigns inevitably and unfortunately result in failure. The cancellation of the show is hard to explain. It isn't as if Showtime has such a great string of hit shows that their valuable time slots had to be freed up for new critical and popular hit series. The fact is that DEAD LIKE ME was the finest show the network ever hosted, and its cancellation is both a blow to quality television on Showtime in particular but also television as a whole. The past few years have seen a host of the very best shows on television get cancelled. The list is long and contains some very impressive shows: FIREFLY, ANGEL, WONDERFALLS, KAREN SISCO, FARSCAPE, and many others.

I hate that this show was cancelled. Cable TV used to be a safehaven for excellent scripted series like this one. Now "Dead Like Me" is gone, and its been replaced by "Fat Actress." It seems that reality TV is invading even the premium channels now - its unfortunate. "Dead Like Me" was the best and yes, most successful show on Showtime's lineup, and the only reason it was cancelled was because the head of the network didn't really find it to his taste.

DLM, excellent in its first season, really hit its stride in season 2. All the characters were already well established, so the second season really allowed them to open up and do some interesting things, and the acting was never better. George (Ellen Muth) has adjusted to her death but still hasn't forgotten her family. Her family (Cynthia Stevenson, Greg Kean, Britt McKillip) is still affected by the loss of George but begin to recover and establish themselves as individuals - especially Reggie (McKillip), who is one of the best characters in the show this season. Thats saying something, considering that all of the reapers (Callum Blue, Jasmine Guy, Laura Harris, Mandy Patinkin) are all at the top of their game as well. Rube (Patinkin) becomes even more of a father figure to the reapers, especially George, while at the same time beginning to reflect on his life, something he stayed far away from in season 1. Roxy's (Guy) identity becomes more defined, and Mason (Blue) is EXCELLENT as the screw-up older brother figure to George, and his pursual of Daisy (Harris), provides much of the hilarity as well as a good deal of the season's emotion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead and buried but not forgotten July 25, 2005
Format:DVD
"Dead Like Me" managed that rare feat in TV; it was both funny and intelligent without pandering to the lowest common demoninator. In the second and final season George must grapple with a number of issues including becoming infatuated with someone from the world of the living--even worse he's about as clueless as they come. Mason continues to be a sober reaper for a little while at least until he sees the impact he has when he takes the soul of a father at his little girl's 6th birthday party. Even worse, Mason is forced to be the clown for the girl's party. It's no surprise that when he makes animal balloons they all look like genitals.

As if the life of the dead couldn't get any worse, the group must take the souls of a serial killer in the season finale and final episode of the series. There's a pretty good featurette on how the optical effects are created for the series including those nasty Gravelings, a photo gallery and 10 minutes of deleted scenes. Unfortunately, MGM doesn't incorporate the deleted scenes on the DVD so they are at the end of their respective episodes which makes viewing these are a bit surreal.The featurette on the second season features brief interviews with most of the cast and executive producer Steve Beeers.

The drawbacks to the set are few. There's no commentary tracks on this set which is a pity. Even after the departure of creator/writer/co-producer Bryan Fuller the second season of the series continued to break new ground and the writing continued to be top notch.

MGM seems to be regressive when it comes to DVDs; these sets don't have a chapter break after the opening credits which is a bit odd. Also, the concept of the "play all" feature that has become the standard for most TV series on DVD somehow continues to elude them.

Anything with Mandy Patinkin is great! The morbid humor here is addicting. Good characterization and storytelling. Not so grim reapers.

Defective Disc 2?
Ooh, I feel kinda bad now. I just complained to Samsung that disc 2 doesn't work on their player (which is known to have some compatibility issues). I guess the problem isn't the player.

Disc 2 plays in my computer, but not my dvd player. So it's not just you, C. Boyd. I'll call and complain... Read more
