5.0 out of 5 stars R1 edition (check dvd player) 6 Aug 2005
By AyJay TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Yay!! The second (and sadly last) season of DLM finds its way onto DVD.
Again, we see both this life, and the afterlife though central character George.
On the dead side: George is a reaper, collecting souls of people about to die (this prevents them feeling pain and stops them getting left behind in this world). George's team also includes Mason, Daisy, and Roxy and is lead by Rube.
This season we also explore the other characters in more detail; especially Rube's mortal life, and surprisingly vulnerable Mason, with the effects on him caused by his'job'.
My favourite character Daisy also gives hints on her living life, especially towards the end of the series. I enjoyed having the 'Bimbo Blonde' surface scratched away from this character, revealing someone we could all know.
On the living side: George works for a temp agency, Happy Time, 'living' under the guise of 'Millie'. Some of the best comedic moments of the series take place in Happy Time. 'Millie's manager Delores is just too funny, and all viewers will see a little bit of their own managers in the character.
George has now adjusted to the fact that her old life is over, and decides to make the most of this one. This will include boyfriends, and mingling with her co workers at Happy Time.
Also, we once again follow George's surviving family. Her parent's are divorcing, and her younger sister Reggie is entering that frightful period known as puberty. George's grandmother also appears this series.
Well, is there anything negative about this fantastic series that ended far too soon?
While the final episode 'Haunted' is satisfying, and ties up the series nicely, there are still a few loose ends that niggled me.

5.0 out of 5 stars So sad it was cancelled!!! 23 Aug 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I felt genuinely disappointed when I reached the last episode of this brilliant series - I cant believe it was cancelled it seems that the writers could've got much more mileage from the show if they'd been given the chance. I bought series one from amazon on a whim one day and i'm so glad that I did otherwise this wonderful show would've passed me by. The series has such an original concept and is fresh and funny - a great alternative to the dramatic crime-based shows that I usually watch. The cast are spot on presenting real characters with genuine flaws such as loveable drunk Mason and badass cop Roxy. My only criticism of this brilliant show is the level of swearing. I'm used to hearing bad language in tv shows and films and it doesnt really bother me when its used within context, but I found the fact that the characters' everyday conversation is constantly peppered with swear words unnecessary and a bit distracting.
Should'nt put you off buying it though, just be prepared!

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh how the mighty have fallen 24 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
It was quite a surprise to find out the reason Showtime hadn't resumed showing a new season of DLM. It is quite disheartening to see such an intelligent funny dark comedy cancelled and replaced by more of the usual "rubbish" that the networks grind out.

The second season of "Dead Like Me" wasn't as strong as the first, but it was pretty close, still very engaging and better than most other television shows on cable and the networks. The main problem with season 2 is that it sets up many interesting questions that were meant to be answered in future seasons, but we'll never get those answers because someone at Showtime decided to kill its best show. In this season we really saw the character of "George" grow up into adult, something she couldn't do while alive. The entire cast was excellent, and the interaction of the "reapers" among themselves and with their "victims" was hysterically funny. There were so many unanswered questions woven into the plots about the reapers that we will never know the answers to. The development of this mismatched group of characters was so interesting, plus the subplot of George's family gave such a deep dimension to the overall story. What will happen to Joy and Reggie? How did Rube die? What was his history? I'm sure the writers would have given us a wonderful ride, if only Showtime stuck with it.

All of the extras are located on the fourth DVD. "Dead Like Me...Again" is an 11-minute featurette about the show. The cast talk about their characters and gush about working on the show. Sadly, the irony is that everyone talks as if another season is in the works when we know that the show has been cancelled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reap the Benefits! 15 Mar 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched the second episode of series 1 and didn't "get" it, so I gave up. When it came round again, I watched from the beginning. Wow! It is brilliant. I didn't think the first series could be surpassed, but the second series is sublime. The actors are wonderful, the stories will make you laugh, cry, squirm and reflect. Add to this a fabulous Metisse soundtrack (Boom Boom Ba and Nomah's Land) and you have a complete package. One of the episodes in this series has made it to my all time Top 10; that's no mean feat, given the stiff competition from ER (in its early days), NYPD Blue, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, Frasier, Buffy, Angel, Raymond, Two and a Half Men & Wonderfalls.

There's something rather comforting about the idea of soul collectors and I urge everyone with a modest interest in this genre to buy both collections. You need the first episode to understand both the nature of the series and the characters of the lead actors. Everything else will fall into place. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. If nothing else, you'll re-think post-it notes. And if someone touches your arm today, fear not. It won't hurt and you're on your way to the TV show of your dreams.
