Showtime (ended 2004)
I find it difficult to even get someone to watch DLM in the first place. If I try to describe the show, they generally look puzzled and eventlually reply something like, "Oh, I don't think I would like that." The problem I have is that DLM is such a unique show it is hard to describe to someone who has never seen it. Without a familiar show to compare it to, it is a hard sell.
|Somebody out there will appreciate this: |
I had never heard of Dead Like Me until SciFi started airing promos for it. In fact, last week when I saw the pilot I thought I was watching a brand new show. Now I discover it was on Showtime and the whole series is on DVD (which I might need to rent/buy some day).
So, anyways, it worked. Sci Fi airing the show really IS expanding the fan base. And I'm proof of that.
this show is very funny
i had not seen it before but having these people be stuck in an after life where they have no choice but to reap and some how go unnoticed by the public with no assistance from what ever powers that be makes perfect sense to me
also i am suprised there are only 2 season i do hope they will renew or atleast do something to enhance it considering all the promotion its getting
I'm another new fan. had never heard of DLM b4, thot it was a brand new show, and couldn't figure out how Mandy Patinkin was filming this AND Criminal Minds. then, when i saw the 2003 copyright at the end, i was really confused. love the show. it's quirky. the only time i noticed the change in language was when the snooty blond reaper tells George she once gave Errol Flynn a foot rub in a car. Her lips were quite obviously NOT saying "foot rub."
anyway. kudos to Sci Fi for running the show!
|[...]that the creator of Wonderfalls worked on this show for a bit before leaving and I really loved Wonderfalls. Granted, I still believe Wonderfalls is better but this seems like the next best thing besides watching the DVD over and over again|
This must be one of those "what you saw first" things as I bought the Wonderfalls after I saw DLM. I thought Wonderfalls was great, but Dead Lke Me was better.
|Anyone have any idea as to how it's doing in the ratings|
I had seen ratings for only a couple of weeks, and both of those it was in SciFi's top ten--3rd place in one of them.
