Dead Like Me
Dead Like Me is back on TV. Us UK types can catch it on the Sci-Fi channel. This is a very blackly funny show about the daily lives of a team of grim reapers. The team help certain people pass over to the other side.
The humour comes because they have to also live their daily lives – have jobs, love lives and so on. The deaths are often gruesome and always unexpected. And the stories are often touching.
The tales are largey told from the perspective of Georgia – a young woman killed when a toilet fell from the Mir Space Station and then recruited to reaperdom. They are all very cynical and dry and always funny. More info from Wikipedia and from a fan site.
Watch this if you like intelligent comedy that treats you like an adult.
