Dead Like Me: Season 2

The first season of this I found a bit hit and miss, they never quite managed to get the balance of comedy/drama right and it mostly came across as whiny. The first episode of the season was no improvement at all and I almost gave up then and there. However I was encouraged to continue watching and was glad of it. After the initial mope-fest the rest of the season actually picked up and got on with stuff, much the same way as the lead character finally did. She stopped whinging quite so much and just got on with being a reaper and ‘living’. The other characters all got some measure of development and roundedness to them and interacted well together. Although mostly still episodic the arc that develops towards the end is an intersting one. Frankly I can’t remember much about the actual stories, but I kept watching, frequently in ~4 episode chunks. It still has extreme problems with the B story following George’s still living family in that there’s no contact at all between the threads. Hopefully the 3rd season will either see that dropped or linked to the other characters somehow. Not the greatest show of all time or anything, but it’s enjoyable to watch.
