Dead Like Me: Life After Death - DVD Review

23 March 2009 6:06 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

The quirky television series Dead Like Me had a loyal following who felt it went on to the afterlife way too soon when it was cancelled in 2004! It has been resurrected for a movie that takes place five years after the series ending with a story that should please fans. It is direct to DVD, available, and just as fun as the original. In the movie, the Reapers (the un-dead who havenÂ.t Â.received their lightsÂ. and moved on) are charged with collecting the souls as people die. If it sounds grim, it is anything but! These Reapers - George Lass (Ellen Muth) Roxy (Jasmine Guy), Daisy (Sarah Wynter) and Mason (Callum Blue) - are able to move among »

[DVD Review] Dead Like Me: Life After Death

Bittersweet. Wholly bittersweet. Dead Like Me: Life After Death presents fans of the original series with a quandary. What is Dead Like Me without Rube (Mandy Patinkin)?

The new Dead Like Me feature film, reprising the plot of the ill-fated television series, answers that question but in a way that most fans will find lacking. By most accounts, getting 70% of an original cast back together 5 years after it ended (quite abruptly, I might add) would seem like a dream come true. Did we notice Laura Harris, who played Daisy Adair, was replaced by Sarah Wynter? You bet your ass we did. Did we care as much? No. What really gets at us - eats at us - is the void left by Rube's absence.  Sure, they play it off decently well in the story but you can't replace the grounding character of »

DVD Round Up, Feb. 22, 2009: ‘Alien Raiders,’ ‘Dead Like Me,’ ‘Religulous’

22 February 2009 3:44 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Oscar madness has left the Round Up a little weary of high profile, award-bait movies. We need a break from the Oscars and what better way to do that than with a few titles that might have slipped through the cracks while everyone was singing “Jai Ho”.

Catch up with some of your favorite characters from the cult hit “Dead Like Me,” watch the latest in Warner Brothers’ direct-to-dvd horror series known as “Raw Feed,” and check out a documentary that I think everyone thought would make bigger waves than it did, Bill Maher’s “Religulous”.

All three of these titles were released on February 17th, 2009.

Alien Raiders

Photo credit: Warner Bros. The “Raw Feed” series of Warner Bros. horror releases has been relatively disappointing. There hasn’t been a single real gem, although you’ll find some hardcore fans of “Rest Stop” and “Otis”. To this critic, they’re almost all near-misses, »

DVD Review: Dead Like Me: Life After Death -- Monika says it's a mediocre attempt to bring closure to a beloved and short-lived show

28 January 2009 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Very few shows get life after death. Fans hope for it; they create petitions and campaigns to try and make it happen; but for every Family Guy second chance, there are many beloved shows that never get another moment to shine – and sometimes that’s a good thing. Five years after the end of the final, second season of Dead Like Me, we’ve got a sequel film – Dead Like Me: Life After Death. Rube (Mandy Patinkin) has gone into the light, the waffle house has burned down, and the reapers have to deal with the new, and quite controversial ideas of businessman and new head reaper, Cameron Kane. On paper, it all seems the same. George (Ellen Muth) is still struggling with what it means to be a reaper while working at Happy Time, her mother and sister are still trying to find their paths in life (but without her father, »
