Review of "Dead
Season One airs on Netflix
I just love this series and plan to watch the rest of it
because it's just so good. Christina Applegate plays Jen, a
woman whose husband died, and she's trying to deal with that
as well as raise two kids. She meets another woman, Judy
(Linda Cardelini) at a grief help group who is very
friendly. The two become very close. You won't expect what
happens. It has many surprising shocks, and twists and
turns. It's a really good suspense drama. The acting is
Ed Asner plays an older friend of
Judy's, and James Marsden plays another person in her life.
I can't really tell you anything more about it without
giving away the great plot. This is a "Don't Miss!" show.
Seriously. The grief part of the show is only one part of
it. It's not like the show Ricky Gervais show "After Life."
Watch it because you won't be sorry!
Jen (Christina Applegate) is a sardonic widow determined
to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder. Judy
(Linda Cardellini) is an optimistic free spirit who’s
recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women
meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends
despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond
over bottles of wine, Entenmann’s cookies and a shared
affinity for The Facts of Life, Judy desperately tries to
shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her
life as she knows it. DEAD TO ME, created by Liz Feldman (2
Broke Girls, One Big Happy), is an addictive dark
comedy that dives into the painfully unfiltered, weirdly
funny waters of grief, loss and forgiveness.
From creator and executive producer Liz Feldman, Dead
to Me stars Christina Applegate (Jen), Linda Cardellini
(Judy), James Marsden (Steve), Ed Asner (Abe) and Brandon
Scott (Nick). Jessica Elbaum (Gloria Sanchez Prods.),
Christie Smith and Christina Applegate also serve as
executive producers, in addition to Adam McKay and Will
Ferrell for Gloria Sanchez Productions. Dead to Me
is produced by CBS Television Studios for Netflix.
