10 Amazing TV Shows You Won't Believe Only Had Two Seasons
10. Dead Like Me
Bryan Fuller is one of the most unfortunate showrunners in the television business, and if anyone is entitled to pick a bone or two with American television networks, it's him. Dead Like Me was his first brainchild, and his audience's first trip to the wonderful and wacky land that is the Fullerverse. Like Fuller's next two shows, Dead Like Me was canned before its time, and although that's a shame, with 29 episodes and a TV movie, the show had a decent, high-quality life. The show followed teenage girl George, who has her life taken away from her in a freak accident and spends the rest of her days as a grim reaper alongside a bunch of other undead characters. The fact that the show aired on Showtime gave Fuller a lot of free reign compared to network shows - he could swear, have a bit of violence and sex, and generally just deal with dark themes. The real joy of the show though is how the tone is handled - it's darkly comedic and warm at the same time, which is no easy feat.
