A great show, shouldn't have been cancelled.  I think there might be a thread around on this, but otherwise good call.  Everyone should check out this show.

what I like about this show is the fact it's an show about grim reapers but they havn't made it and family show! it's adult in alot of it language and content.
It's funny but also at time sad, one of my favourite moments is the guy that died before he could have a sex change op......

Stan Samuels: [in a church] Why would God do this to me?
Daisy Adair: Do what? Have you die this way?
Stan Samuels: Have me live this way! God doesn't love all creatures, Daisy.
Daisy Adair: I think you should pray, Stan.
Stan Samuels: I want to forgive him, but I want him to tell me that he's sorry first.

Its gotten cancelled though hasnt it? I watched it for a while, and I liked it but I couldnt see a long term future for it. Plus the chick in it was a little weird.

It worked well 4 2 season but anymore might have over killed it

I enjoyed the reaper aspect and the storylines which followed them as they worked.  This was the humourous aspect and was fresh and funny.  The problem was that there was significant chunks of each episode handed over to George's family.  I realise this was to show how her death had affected them and how it had caused the family to fall apart but it just decended into tedious soap opera every time they appeared on screen.  If there was a reason for the cancellation this was it as I am certain it turned vveiwers away from the show.

I agree Sanchia, Georges family becomes annoying, they needed to slowly fade them out or have them appearing every so often when Millies path crosses with the families etc, it was intressting to see them dealing with her death and her Sisters change, but it spent far too much time on unnesscarry storylines such as the mother re dating etc....

Yet another gem that fell by the wayside because some studio didn't have enough faith in it.  I love this show, I used to watch it all the time and still do on occasion.  Shame it's not on anymore, it's quite different from most other shows on the tube.

It was very similiar to "Now and Again" from the creators of the X-files in that the main character is given a new life and body but can't leave the family behind...and that show was also cancelled.
