    I believe I rented this from Amazon or Netflix earlier this year. I was always a fan of the series (I watched it's entirety a couple of times when when it was rerun on HDNet), and really looked forward to seeing this movie. Both Mandy Patinkin and Laura Harris (Rube, and Daisy, Daisy Adair) were missing, which to me was a letdown. Daisy was played by another actress. I was glad to see it. I don't know if I'd make the effort to see it again.

    Save yourself some time. This movie was awful. It wasn't made for SyFy, it was made for DVD.

    It was out months ago. Not quite up to par with the original series but if you were a fan of the original show it is worth a watch.

    Dead Like Me movie is being broadcast on SciFi this Sunday, October 10, 2010. It is listed as Dead Like Me in my DirecTV guide info. No mention of the Life After Death subtitle.

    :up: I picked it via WL a couple weeks ago, along with (I think? can't remember now) a few DLM eps. I'm waiting to collect the rest of the series, then will watch them all, with the movie last. Loved the series, but I only have seen random odd eps here and there, I didn't see it while it was running (on Showtime?).

    I tried the Syfy version the last time they had it on and all the bleeps for language made it unwatchable. The DVD version is much more palatable if you were a fan of the series on Showtime.

    There were parts that were very good, such as George and Reggie. I also liked the ending. Dolores Herbig was very good as usual.

    The rest... yeah, was pretty bad.
