I feel tainted after watching this travesty! Why destroy the memory?

It's difficult to even know where to begin! Firstly I have to repeat a common theme through all the posts I have read and that is, DLM was (still could be) a fantastic show. The wry take on the irony of everyday life, things we take for granted, death just another one of those things, the interaction,humour and frailty portrayed by the cast had me completely hooked.

I think I made the mistake of watching the Two Seasons back-to-back on DVD and then expected the film to be a finale giving closure to all those who were left in the wilderness when 'The Suits' decided to cancel the show.

Well, this is obviously what the suits decided it could have been', but to quote Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park; "Yeah, but your scientists (Suits) were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should".

Okay, let the ranting begin, apologies, I will go off at Tangents but seriously if you spent time watching the series and followed 'The Rules', this film decides that the most fundamental rule set out in the Pilot episode doesn't matter! We don't decide who lives or dies, we take the soul to save them suffering, as-per the young child in the train-wreck. If you leave the soul, it will decay and become distorted and twisted and not the person that once-was.

The film then says, "Nah......doesn't matter!" You have Roxy 'saving' a man from drowning and pushing his soul back into his body!!!!? She is one of the strongest personalities in the show, abides by the rules (apart from ripping a man's soul from his body in temper, before putting it back) and even moved into Law Enforcement, so strong is her moral conduct. Yet here we have her breaking a fundamental rule?

Okay, I have read all the posts and see that Sarah Wynter takes a hammering for her portrayal of Daisy. Now I agree that she played Daisy Adair completely out of the character we had become to know. A character who's frailties and subtle cracks in the tough exterior were beginning to slowly ebb out and expose who she really was. A sad and lonely person who's years of reaping had left her emotionally damaged.

This character played by Laura Harris was mesmerising and brilliantly acted. What I refuse to say though is that Sarah Wynter is at fault for completely closing all the doors on that subtlety and instead went back to the self-centred version we saw in her first appearance.

Now, lets be honest, Sarah is an Actor who is told by the Director how he/she wants the character to be seen, there are also the writer's who gave the Director the duff-est of scripts to work with, I cannot blame Sarah for her portrayal just the idiots who decided that Two-Seasons of character-building was not really what the viewers needed or wanted! Are they kidding. Laura Harris's acting and character building made the viewer sympathise with her. In one-fell-swoop, they decided that Sarah would be merely a shadow (almost a Graveling!) of that dynamic, set in motion through the brilliant scripts of the show.

In the Laura version I am sure that when Daisy forgot the words on stage, she would have broken down and ran from the stage. Her chance at fame at-last in her grasp, snatched cruelly from her and sentencing her to more years of misery in a world she was yearning to depart?

Rube,Rube, where-for-art-thou Rube!? He got his Lights...ooooohhhh-p-leeeease!!!! What a cop-out! Lets be honest Rube was the man you just wanted to know what the heck was going on! His Authority when questioned, often brought a perfect response of "well you do that, then lets see what happens" attitude, which made the viewer wonder just what powers/options were available to him? Watching the 'Behind-the-scenes' feature, he nailed perfectly what it was that made the Second-Series for his character. He explained that each show just gave you a tiny piece of the jigsaw that expanded his character. The money in the undelivered envelope being terrible mistake, the wanted poster (alluding to a Bank Robbery), his daughter being found as a Reaper arrived, perfectly awaiting the line "I Reap what you Sow" (it never was said), as he met his daughter the day he died.

Why did he need that money? Did he die the day of the robbery and manage to post the money just before his fate?

Mason, a character who was the joker in the pack, but like Ying and Yang with the character of Daisy he felt a bond that almost became Brother and Sister, especially brought home when she refused his offer of the ring. Mason was a cool character, the naughty child who you just knew was going to one-day really make Rube show his colours while goading Roxy and Georgia, again an almost perfect balance of humour and again frailty as you see him find the record showing Daisy's last-words, then realising that she really is the damaged goods mentioned above.

I would write more but you get 1000 words.....give the film a miss...please!

Oh My Gosh! If you like the series don't watch this!

Let me begin by saying that I adore the Dead Like Me series. With that being said I feel that this movie was an insult to a wonderful t.v. show. I am not gonna complain about George looking older, Mason being a little chubby, or any of the nit picking gripes most folks have for this movie. What I will complain about is how this film has a totally different feel than what fans of the series had came to love. The dark quirkiness of the series is gone and replaced by slick looking production and crappy camera angles. So now I will get down to business as to what was wrong with the key elements of the film. For starters Joy Lass has somehow went from being super bitch in the series to mother of the year. Happy Time doesn't even look like the same place.(Although I was glad Murry had more screen time) George has somehow been exhumed and laid to rest in another graveyard and gotten a larger headstone. Der Waffle House burns down in the second scene. The comic book crap with the voice overs. The product placement of the stupid phones that everyone got their reaps on. How Hudsons ETD changes and its never explained why. No answer as to how Betty (Rebecca Gayhart) was able to jump over the cliff and into the lights in season one. Every scene with Sarah Wynter and the way she ripped apart Daisy as a washed up, talentless, co-dependant actress and not the sly, cunning woman we had grown to love/hate. They should have just said Daisy had gone to the lights with Rube and this dumb blond chick was someone new. No answers to what became of the relationship between Daisy and Mason. Too Much Roxy.. I felt that Jasmon Guys character was never that necessary in the series and only annoyed me. This movie gives ya lots of her.How so many scenes were spent retelling stuff already known such as how a reaper looks different. It was like watching the pilot episode all over again. The post its falling from the sky in the end had more cheese than Wisconsin. The only thing that I can say was good about the movie was George reveling herself to Reggie. We all wanted this to happen in the series and felt it was only a matter of time before it happened. I really wish that the series had lasted longer than it did. If you look at how the last episode ended with George walking by a sleeping Reggie and Joy at her grave and dropping candy only to have Reggie wake up and see George in the sunrise as George explains in the voice-over what its like to be "Dead Like Me" was a better wrap up for the series (although not intended) than what this movie was.

Well. a BETTER send off than ShowTime fgave it..

I thought Dead Like Me was one of the... funniest.. saddest.. smartest.. and just quirkiest shows ever on the air. This film takes place, picking up 5 years later, where everyone left off.. mostly. Now the biggest complain has been the absence of Rube (Mandy Patinkin) as the boss.. a tragic loss to be sure. and the recasting of Sarah Wynter in the role of Daisy Adair, formerly filled by Laura Harris. I will only say.. not to give too much away.. but they got MOST of the cast back.. and a pretty decent.. I won't say it is a definitive conclusion, as it could be left open to more DTV films. But at least it felt there was a punctuation at the end of the sentence which had been hanging for almost half a decade.

I will be the first to admit the movie has its MAJOR problems.. but over all, rough edges and everything.. it is a pretty decent representation of what the best of the show offered, although not quite as adeptly written, or acted.. its much harder to fill in a 90 minute film with so many characters as opposed to a dozen hour episodes yearly. This does seem more done for the "fans" who've missed the show. and its still a welcome return, if not at its best.
