Dead Like Me

Dead Like Me is a show that ran on Showtime from 2003-2004.  I got the DVDs from the library this week.  The series centers on Georgia Lass whose life was cut short at age 18 due to a toilet seat that fell from the Mir Space Station.   Much to her surprise, Georgia doesn’t go to heaven or to hell or anywhere for that matter.   Instead, she becomes undead in order to become a Grim Reaper.  It wasn’t a job she chose, so it took more than a little adjustment.  Anyway, it was created by Bryan Fuller who wrote Pushing Daisies.  He also wrote for Star Trek DS9 and Voyager as well as Heroes.   I enjoyed the quirky dark humor.  It is dark show, being about death and all, but it has heart.  We see Georgia grow and mature in her life after death.   There are touching moments as well as some very funny ones.   It’s too bad it was canceled, but at least they go to make up a follow up movie in 2009 though.  I am going to have to get Life After Death from the library ASAP!

Reading and writing and writing about reading are my passion. I've been keeping a journal since I was 14. I also write fiction and poetry. I published my first collection of short stories, "Radiant Darkness" in 2000. I followed that up with my first collection of poetry in 2001 called "Journey without a Map." In 2008, I published "Persephone's Echo" another collection of poetry. Since then I've also published Emotional Espionage, The Way The Story Ended, My Perfect Drug and Out There. I have my BA in English from The Ohio State University at Mansfield and my MA in English Lit from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I also have my Post BA Certificate in Women's Studies. I am the mother of two beautiful children. :-)
