Fandom: Dead Like Me

Dead Like Me is an American television comedy-drama starring Ellen Muth, Mandy Patinkin, Jasmine Guy, Callum Blue and Laura Harris as a group of grim reapers in Seattle, Washington. Created by Bryan Fuller and continued by executive producer John Masius, it ran for a total of nineteen episodes over two seasons.

Eighteen-year-old Georgia Lass (but, really, if you know what’s good for you, call her George) is the show’s protagonist and narrator, a terminal underachiever and disaffected youth who, suddenly tossed the duties of reaping souls—removing the souls before death, escorting them until they move on into the afterlife—finds out that being undead has just as many challenges as being alive. This razor-sharp and quirky dramedy may been canceled before its time, but hasn’t stopped fans from caring about the show (and with the upcoming Direct-to-DVD movie coming out, this seemed like an ideal time to have this guide) or creating community around in on LiveJournal.
