Dead Like Me

The Complete Second Season

Taking a cue from HBO's Six Feet Under, Showtime's Dead Like Me features Ellen Muth as George, a teenager who died and became a grim reaper. Sounds fun...but she's discovering that being a teenager in the afterlife is just as tough as in real life. There are still unrequited crushes, mood swings, and all manner of teen craziness. In addition, she has to learn the ropes on her way to being an adult grim reaper.

Proving that "reapers are anything but grim company" (Cleveland's The Plain Dealer), this "deliciously dark comedy about the afterlife" (Newsday) returns for "a second season as strong as its first" (Philadelphia Daily News). Thanks to breakout star Ellen Muth's prickly charm, Dead Like Me has "an amusingly odd and touching energy all its own" (Detroit Free Press).

This four-disc set includes all 15 episodes from season two. Extras include deleted scenes, Dead Like Me... Again featurette, Putting Life Into Death special effects featurette, and a photo gallery.

Get Dead all over again.
