DLM: Season One Ends
Season One for 'Dead Like Me' has wrapped in the States, so I've updated the Spoiler Page to reflect the entire season (versus only the episodes that have not aired). I know that it recently began airing in the UK, and I wouldn't be surprised if it starts showing up in Canada and even Australia over the next few months.
Showtime has committed to a second season, and even mentioned during the closing credits that the show will return next year. Hopefully, we'll be able to get more information on the show in terms of spoilers as interest increases.
Overall, it was a mixed bag in terms of spoilers for the show. While at times it was very accurate, it could also be seen that major and minor changes occurred during the actual filming process. For example, the character of Charlotte was originally cast as being a potential suicide victim that George saves. That's not what happened in the final draft/filming. That woud be a major one, a minor one would be that the victim of the 'Pet Reaper' was originally intended to be a hamster, but ended up being a rabbit.
So no matter what the source, it's going to be a bit trickier with the new series determining what is solid spoilage as opposed to that which may change. But they are in a greater state of flux as opposed to the already established show (which explains why with the numerous reshoots, I'm not sure what to expect for the first episode of 'Tru Calling).
I hope those who watched enjoyed the show, I think it's one of the best new series of the season. Although there is another show that is months away that might beat it as my favorite 'new show' of the year (just a hint, both shows have a common connection).
In the meantime, I'll continue to track news on the show to keep you up to date on all the happenings.
