Dead Like Me Appreciation #3 ~ "You're a constipator, Peanut" -Rube

Welcome to the 3rd Dead Like Me Appreciation Thread


Georgia "George" Lass (Ellen Muth) is an 18-year-old college dropout who has no job skills and seems unable to take an interest in anything, including her own life. She projects an air of cynicism that infuriates her mother, baffles her father, and intimidates her younger sister.

When her mother, Joy (Cynthia Stevenson), insists that George get a job, she applies to a temp agency that sends her out as a file clerk. Her lunch break — and her life — are cut short when a toilet seat from the Mir space station drives her into the pavement.

George does not realize that she is dead until Rube (Mandy Patinkin), the kindly leader of a team of "grim reapers," points out her remains. Rube takes George under his wing and introduces her to the other members of his undead group: Mason (Callum Blue), Roxy (Jasmine Guy) and Daisy (Laura Harris). In addition, Rube explains to George that in order for her soul to move on to its next level, she has a quota of souls she must help remove from those on Earth who are about to die.

The members of Rube's team of reapers are all, like George, people who died with unresolved issues. They still have lessons to learn that — for one reason or another — they failed to learn in life. They move about the Pacific Northwest in the full light of day. They walk the city streets and eat at all-night diners, just like anyone else. They have to find their own places to live, cook, eat and do their laundry. They look just like everyone else, but as "un-dead" grim reapers they appear physically different to the living than they did when they were alive.

Dead Like Me revolves around George¹s adventures as she comes into contact with an eclectic group of people who are about to meet their maker, and as she learns to interact with her fellow reapers, with Rube, and with her new/old boss, Dolores Herbig. She also looks in on her grieving family and must cope with how things continue to change without her. All of these interactions lead her to ask: What if death is not the end? What if it is not even an escape, but an opportunity to accept responsibility? … What if death is a wake-up call?

The Cast

Reapers:

Georgia "George" Lass ~ Ellen Muth

Georgia "George" Lass is the youngest member of an undead group of "grim reapers."
At the tender age of 18 she met her demise and is now learning to adjust to her new role as a reaper.
She looks at the world from the outside with sarcasm and a wry sense of humor.
Being undead has given her the opportunity to gain a better understanding of life than she had the first time around.


Rube ~ Mandy Patinkin

Rube is the leader of the grim reaper team. His in-depth knowledge of the world and his gentle demeanor make him the mentor everyone wishes they had.
He helps each member of the reaper team find their place within the realm of the undead.


Roxy ~ Jasmine Guy

Roxy is the sassy, street-smart member of this troupe of grim reapers. She has no problem "telling it like it is."
As the veteran of the group, she makes sure everyone knows their place within the reaper team's hierarchy.

Mason ~ Callum Blue

Mason is the kind of guy who any girl would be attracted to — in this life or afterlife.
This "grim reaper" is good-looking, mischievous, and just bad enough to be fascinating, without being dangerous.
If only his work ethic were as powerful as his charms, he might already have met his soul-quota.

Daisy Adair ~ Laura Harris

Daisy Adair is an actress who, before meeting her demise on the set of Gone with the Wind, was better known for her off-screen sexual exploits than for her on-screen performances.
Daisy hasn't given up hope of a comeback from the afterlife … although she hasn't heard from her agent in decades.

The Family

Joy Lass ~ Cynthia Stevenson
Joy is George's mother — a stubborn, headstrong woman who had an inability to connect with her daughter in life and is having an even harder time connecting with her own feelings after George's death.

Clancy Lass ~ Greg Kean
Clancy is George's father, a university professor who has a terrible relationship with George's mother, Joy. He's at a loss as to how to deal with George's untimely death and Reggie's subsequent malaise.


Regina "Reggie" Lass ~ Britt McKillip
Reggie is Georgia's younger misfit sister. She has her own peculiar way of coming to terms with the sudden death of her big sister. Like most pre-teens, she has a hard time communicating with her parents and is often confused by a world that is constantly changing around her.

Dolores Herbig ~ Christine Willis
Dolores Herbig is George's boss at the Happy Time temp agency. As much as George pushes people away, Dolores always seems to get through. Dolores has seen it all, dropping one-liners about her Web cam or her affair with the cleaning man. No matter what George is going through, she can always count on Dolores for a wink or a smile to show her someone else has been there, too.

Aw, I'm sorry Val. You weren't around and we were at the limit when I checked in before bed last night.

Sure, it would be good to have the OP updated.

Do you think the font should be black? to fit with the portraits death-outfits I mean, or some other color?

Maybe go with black or charcoal grey at first .. you can always change it.

If you want a place to work on the design, use the Moderators Only thread.

Thanks but it was so frustrating smh see, if I had PSCS6 I wouldn't have lost the edits, unfortunately I have CS5 so if your computer goes out whatever you edited is gone.
