Some of you might remember the dark comedy Dead Like Me- even after its cancellation in 2004. If so you might also be interested in a straight to DVD release of Dead Like Me: Life After Death. Fans of the show are rewarded with their diligence by being able to see much of the original cast(Minus Mandy Pantakin)- and a few extras.
The crew of Reapers find themselves confronted by change, as their habitual meeting place Der Waffle Haus burns down on the same day that their boss and head reaper, Rube, disappears (having “gotten his lights”). They shortly meet their new boss, Cameron Kane (Henry Ian Cusick), a slick businessman who died falling from the World Trade Center.
(Note- this was actually released in February, but I hadn’t heard about it until recently!) If you’re already planning for your hiatus- it might be worth it to check out the show.
