As the season opens, George concludes that her day job at Happy Time Temp Agency may not be so bad when she meets novice office worker Brennan (Steven Grayhm) -- this despite the fact that her previous attempts at romance in the afterlife have not ended too happily. Later on, George is dragged off to Happy Time's annual woodland retreat, just as her fellow reaper Mason (Callum Blue) loses the Post-It note with the name of the next soul he is slated to reap. In another episode, George excitedly prepares for her first "VIP reap" when a rock star is due to shuffle off the ol' mortal coil. And later still, our heroine develops a crush on the son of her newest reap-ee, which puts her in a funk when she realizes that she will soon have to break the heart she is so desperate to win. The season-two conclusion is "Haunted," a Halloween episode in which the reapers try to take advantage of an old legend so that they will appear to the living as they were when they were alive (since they normally appear to be different people in the afterlife).

I only heard of "Dead Like Me" when "Pushing Daisies" premiered last year, but I would never have seen it if our local CW station hadn't run it on Sunday mornings. Even then, I only caught a few minutes of a few of episodes before it was replaced. After that, I had to see the entire series. The characters are odd and endearing, the actors bring them to life, or, whatever. I thoroughly enjoyed every episode, and can hardly wait for my wish to come true.
