Dead Like Me Season One (R2) in June
MGM Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Dead Like Me Season One for 20th June 2005 priced at £39.99. Dark, irreverent, and very witty, DEAD LIKE ME centres on a disaffected 18-year old woman who is suddenly killed when a toilet seat from the MIR space station hurtles to Earth and hits her in the head. Georgia Lass is surprised to discover that an afterlife does exist, and that she’s already been assigned a for the Pacific Northwest chapter of grim reapers. Initiated into this secretive society of soul collectors, George eventually comes to terms with the ghoulish duties with which she has been assigned with the help of her new boss is Rube, a “reaper” – one of the many who pluck the souls of the living and escort them to their eternal reward. She must, however, reconcile certain unresolved issues which still linger from her life among the living before she is allowed to "move on."
What Georgia experiences beyond death is the focus of this darkly comedic series. It takes a slightly twisted look at life and at one possible version of life in the after life. What if death is not the end? What if it is not even an escape from the issues that plagued us? What if it is not a way to avoid accountability, but an opportunity to accept responsibility? What if it is a wake-up call?
