Review: Dead Like Me

In Dead Like Me, Ellen Muth plays the role of Georgia 'George' Lass, a teenager who struggles to reconcile with the afterlife. Very soon she realizes that there are as many problems in the afterlife as there are in ordinary life.

Her friends Callum Blue as 'Mason', Jasmine Guy as 'Roxy', Laura Harris as 'Daisy', and Mandy Patinkin playing 'Rube', all live the same adventures as George as they try to collect the souls of people in their last moments of life.

Once George dies, right in the first episode of the series, she is enrolled in a team of so called"Grim Reapers". The Grim Reapers are responsible with transiting the soul from the world we live in to different existential plane. George basically receives a new body and a new "job", although she is not being paid for it. Exactly as she'd been in real life, George is now dissatisfied and generally indifferent in this new plane of existence. Even in this afterlife George has to get a job so she can earn the much needed money for 'living'. George is thus forced to return to her old job at least for the time being. Together with her friends Roxy, Betty and Mason, as well as Rube, her boss, George discovers that there is still life in the after-life.

Dead Like Me follows the daily lives and the adventures of this team of Grim Reapers. The series also follows the life of George's family, as they are living in the aftermath of her death. Dead Like Me is arguably underrated, and I think more people should give it a try. It is a surprising TV series that should've continued in my opinion. In any event, if you want to watch an interesting series you can choose this one with confidence. I am sure it will surprise you.

Verdict:

Dead Like Me offers an entertaining ride to the afterlife, with plenty smart lines, lots of action and an interesting, though weird, story.
