Dead Like Me Review

Two seasons was the lifespan, now it has a DVD afterlife


Where do the souls of wannabe cult hits go when the network pulls the plug? DVD. The prematurely deceased Dead Like Me lasted just two short seasons before US cable network Showtime realised that despite its promising cocktail of Six Feet Under, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and The Wonder Years, it was delivering neither numbers nor Emmys.

Still, the small band of ardent fans who followed the tragi-comic misadventures of sardonic office drone/undead soul reaper George (Ellen Muth) is likely to increase in the DVD afterlife. Gone, but not forgotten.
