Okay I've been a fan of this show since the very first episode. Love it love it love it. The writing is top notch and the premiss is that Grim Reapers are real. They exist on this earth to reap the souls of those who have died... But they still have to have day jobs.
It's been nominated for two emmys unfortunately neither are for writing or lead actress (ellen muth is cool: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0616091/)
[ Yeah, the box set of the first season was recently acquired here at chez biltmore. Back when we had showtime, i watched a few eps, and i loved what i saw. I've been watching them in order now and they're every bit as good as I thought. -k]
