I've been a fan of the TV Show Dead Like Me for a long time now since the show was first aired, and after the show was canceled I was deeply saddened.
Luckily, their will be a movie coming straight to DVD,
The release date is Feb 17, 2009, and it stars most of the characters from the original series[Excluding Rube and Daisy]. Their has been buzz about this for a while now, and I look forward to seeing it!

Have you seen it yet? I have it in my netflix cue as I thought $20 was a bit to much for an 80 minute movie. Will wait for it to go down in price before purchasing. Hoping that this breathes new life into the series and they bring it back. Two seasons was not enough and there are plenty of loose ends.

I wanted to watch this but I read a review in IMDB that made me not watch it. I'll probably check it out. :)
If there is one thing that could be said of the television series of Dead Like Me, it's that it was made great by it's superb characters and a moving theme. Despite having a great premise, the plot was never the strong point of the series, sometimes undermined by inconsistencies and holes.
Now in 2009, Dead Like Me: Life After Death offers all of the same plot inconsistencies but with none of the excellent characters which made us fall in love with the original series. The characters in the film are extremely shallow, and altogether unfaithful to their originals. Of the original team of reapers who made it to this film (George, Roxy, Mason, Daisy), all but George are condensed in to a few clichés. In fact the presence of these characters only serves as a function of nostalgia, as their contribution to the story has been mangled and broken beyond comprehension.
But if you guys think it's good just let us know.
