I absolutely love this show. The third and final season is now available on Netflix. I haven't finished it yet, so please no spoilers!

I found this show by chance when it first came out years ago and I really needed it at the time. I found that on rewatch it is just as meaningful as it first was.

Many difficult topics are explored like miscarriage, cheating husbands, domestic abuse, female anger, and more. The characters are complex and deep. It's focused on two women and their friendship and I would very much like to see more shows like this.

Here's an article about it: https://theswaddle.com/netflixs-dead-to-me-is-what-happens-when-women-write-women/

Is anyone else a fan?

One of my favourite shows! Both actresses are amazing. Having finished watching the 3rd season, I found out that the actress who plays Jen is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, yet her performance on the show was top notch

Yes! Season one was absolutely amazing and brilliant. I liked 2 a little less, but it’s hard to sustain the kind of genius they had in season 1. I will definitely be watching the new season soon.

I love the two leads and their complex friendship. Such rich characters, and ultimately a great show about female solidarity.

OMG, love this show. I've only seen the first season, but it was amazing. Honestly, that season ending could be a perfect end to the show - I don't know how another season could possibly be as good as that first season.

Absolutely fantastic show, I’ve loved it for years. Best platonic love story I’ve seen.

Unfortunately this new season has elements in it that mean I won’t be watching, which I’m bummed about, but I hope it’s good for everyone who does watch! I’ll just rewatch the first couple seasons.

Oh, no! Would you mind elaborating?

Omg, I had written an entire response thinking of the show Dead Like Me before realizing I have never seen the show called Dead to Me...

Thanks for the recommendation!

Is Dead like me any good?

Most of my post was gonna be about how I watched it sooooo long ago, but I do remember liking it! Pretty dark humour, and it was on when I was in highschool (I am 30 now). the premise was pretty interesting. Without spoiling it too much, the main character has essentially died, but is chosen as someone who pushes other people to their deaths, like when it's "their time" or something. It goes through her learning her new job as a Reaper and getting an actual job, her mom and sister grieving her, and the other reapers, who each have their own back stories, how they died etc.

It was only two seasons! I might give it a rewatch and see if I like it as much now.

You might also like Kevin Can F*ck Himself, it’s only two seasons long, but the friendship of the two lead female characters, and the brilliant haunting final episode, make it well worth a watch imho.

That's also a good one -- and potentially disruptive because I can imagine a lot of women watching it and recognizing their own potentially abusive partners in the Kevin character. There are an awful lot of Kevins out there flying under the radar.

Oh, I hadn't seen that the final season was out. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two seasons. It's so well done.

Since Christina Applegate has been in the news lately, I've been meaning to check this show out. I'll probably binge it on my Christmas break

I love the show and the emphasis on female solidarity and friendship, but unfortunately I thought the series finale was a big letdown.

Also I feel so bad for Christina Applegate. I hope she's doing well and managing okay. 😞

Oh my god, that's the first I've heard about her. Hasn't she been through enough already? Oh man. 😥

I love this show, too! Didn’t know the new season was out already, will have to check that out during the weekend.

I started watching the last season. Love the show, too!

Charlie still annoys me beyond comprehension. I know he's meant to be the wrench thrown into the chaos. Henry is sweet but his friend (shandy, I think is her name)1. is hella creepy but I know it's meant to be all for comedic effect.
