Trivia

In the opening narrative describing the origins of death, the writing on the jar that contains death says "Sanskrit dictionary". See more »

Goofs

The location of the action is supposed to be Seattle Wa. There is a scene in the hanger when they are eulogizing Murray the cat before launching him. A plane in the background is badged C-FZLN, which is registered in Quebec, where of course the series was filmed. It could be in Seattle, but not likely. Also it is not explained, but there are no places that a launch could take place near Seattle, too far north. See more »

A Decent Epitaph for Dead Like Me
15 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dead Like Me: Life After Death, is a good entry into the series. Though not quite as fun or engaging as the series was, it was quite enjoyable to see the characters again, and how they have all grown, matured, and subtly changed. It felt a bit restrained in comparison to the episodes which had a bit more energy and emotional content. However, the quality of dialog, special effects, and visual design are all very good.

Surely, this film won't be as enjoyable to individuals who are not familiar with the series, as they won't perceive the subtle character differences, and certainly won't understand why the reaper team is so frustrated with the new team leader of Cameron Kane. Nor will neophytes to the series pick up on the fact that George's mom has also grown and matured significantly, or why it was such a big deal that she reveals her secret to her sister. And despite the fact that they did an excellent job of introducing "the world" that the story is built upon, the significance of Der Waffle Haus, Happy Time, and even Murray the cat, are all lost.

Overall, it was a satisfying experience, and yet leaves me regretting the series was canceled so prematurely. Dead Like Me was such a refreshing show, with its dark humor, yet its light and happy sadness. The ensemble cast, weird deaths, and character arcs, are all sorely missed. In fact, I canceled my Showtime subscription when I heard they had canceled the show. I hope there are additional installments into the franchise, but I fear that this is it. And if that is the case, it was a satisfying way to tie it up, unlike the unceremonious cut it received five years ago.
