I love love "Dead like me".

It is the best series I've seen in a while, different vein from the sci-fi series I usually love. This one is about death mostly. About grim reapers in a modern setting. Yes it's dark. But also thought-provoking.

There are only 2 seasons since it got cut :( I guess the humor was too dark for many.

Some of my favoritist series:
  Babylon 5
  Sex in the city
  Battlestar Galactica
  Heroes
  Entourage
  Firefly
  Star Trek TNG
  Dead like me

bling!
given that I like everything else in your list,
(especially B5 at the top), I'm gonna have to pick up DLM.

We tried that but found it meh. Rented like two discs and saw 6 or 7 episodes, even tried again on NetFlix (it is one of the free play now shows if you have an account), but just couldn't get into it that much. I think I liked it more than CdR did, but I think we both found the main character rather off-putting for some reason. I loved Mandy, though.

While it certainly could have gone on longer, I think the series ended at a good place, and didn't feel unfinished. I'm starting to become a real fan of series with a defined story arc (like B5) rather than shows that just keep going on and on until they start to deteriorate. I'd rather have 3 really good seasons than 5 good seasons and 6 bad ones.

I understand that the is a DLM movie coming out next year, and it is a pilot for the resumption of the series. Rube (Mandy P) is not going to be in it.

Yay! I loved this series (and not just cuz the lead character is named George). I'm looking forward to the movie. :-)
