Eighteen-year-old Georgia Lass, a college drop-out working at a temp agency, gets a wake-up call when she suddenly dies in a freak accident. After discovering life after death, George returns to Earth and joins a team of grim reapers under the guidance of head reaper Rube.

Comedy, some romance and some philosophy thrown in (both light and dark). This is a show I love introducing to friends that haven't yet had the pleasure.
Movie: Meh. I didn't feel like it was the DLM that I grew to love.
Box set: I do not regret buying this set. It has pretty much everything I would want as a DLM fan.
So, the show is amazing. It only lasted two seasons, but that's just what happens sometimes. It aired on Showtime, so be prepared for both swearing and, on a few occasions, naked guy butt. Oh, well. At least it's comedic naked guy butt. The show ends on a great note, with major character development for all of the main characters. Daisy Adare, especially, makes great strides in her evolution by the end of the show.
As for the movie...
The movie is...kind of weird. Not weird in a good way, just...weird. It feels thrown together somehow, and Rube - the stable patriarch of the group - is gone, replaced by some sleazy guy named Cameron. The actress that plays Daisy has also been replaced (you can get explanations for those changes in the featurettes on the DVD) and they seem to have yanked out all of her character development. The Daisy Adare in the movie is the Daisy Adare that appeared in the middle of Season One, NOT the Daisy Adare that we saw at the end of Season Two. The continuity just feels off. However, the best thing about the movie is the relationship between Reggie (thank god they kept the same actress) and her mom, and Reggie and George. This feels like the main plot of the movie, and is handled well, especially the end.
I have to say, though, the movie isn't really worth it. I'm not sure why they made it. It provides no more closure than the last episode of the series, and seems like something done for financial reasons rather than a decision made by the writers. So I'm giving it 4 stars because the series is fantastic, while the movie is kind of pointless. Seriously, if you don't want to watch it, you don't have to. You won't miss anything.
