    Watched the pilot of a new show that aired last week in the US, called DEAD LIKE ME.

    The synopsis goes something like this :

    A young girl, Georgia "George" Lass has dropped out of college and is having to take dead end jobs. She begins work as a filling clerk (where she is told she will stay!), if this isn't bad enough, when on lunch, she's killed in a freak toilet seat accident.

    Ah, but that's just the beginning, just after that fatal accident she learns that she's now a "grim reaper", by her new mentor Rube (Mandy Patinkin), and his reaper friends Betty (Rebecca Gayheart) and Mason (Callum Blue).

    Sounds alittle crazy, but really works, although I'm not sure how they're gonna make an entire series out of it!!

    If anyone else has seen it, I'd love to know what you think :D

    Watched it last week, and have episode 2 to watch tonight. Very good i thought, just the right mix of funny and drama.

    [Luc],
    I'll have ep 2 tomorrow - not sure if it can actually sustain the cleverness (is that a word?), but the pilot was very well written and Mandy Patinkin is fantastic!!!

    Let me know if it's as smart on episode 2 :smashin:
