A Clip Show
6 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just re-watching the first season of Dead Like Me when I got to episode 12 "Nighthawks". This must have been a filler episode to make the first season 14 episodes. It really surprises me the a show needs to do a clip show in the first season. I'm sure it makes it worse that I watched all the previous episode in a couple of days.

There is a small plot there so it is not a complete waste of time watching it. My guess is that there is an 20-25 minute episode and they needed sometime to bring it up to a normal length show. To this day I think this was one of the best shows and that it was canceled way to soon. But every show has to have a weak episode or two and this just happens to be it.
