What I Am Currently Watching  
I am currently marathoning both Carnivàle and Dead Like Me.  I love the Netflix option of having DVDs streamed right into my computer and my TV. (I have a Blu-Ray player that can receive Netflix streaming.) For $1.00 more a month, I can have 1 DVD at a time sent to me and an unlimited stream of shows as well. Unfortunately, Carnivàle is not available via streaming, so I purchased both season through iTunes. I don't care whether I have the disks for this show.  I'm on episode 9 of Carnivàle. I'm still not enjoying it, but I was told that ti will get better once Season 2 starts. We'll see.

On the other hand, I am so enjoying Dead Like Me. It is witty, well written, the cast mesh well, and to my surprise, so far in Season 1, I found two former LOST actors in it: Kevin Durand and Harold Perineau. I loved Kevin's character. It was so far removed from Keamy. I'm finished with Season 1. I am not going onto Season 2. I wonder which LOST actor I will be surprised by. After the TV series, I'm watching the movie. And I understand that Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond) is in that one.

I'm uploading the clips from YouTube, in case you are interested in viewing them. They are not very spoilery. The premise of the show is that some characters are grim reapers. They release the souls from the bodies that are about to die. When they are not releasing the souls, they have to have day jobs to keep themselves "alive" in their undead status—a very funny premise.

There are no clips showing Harold's scenes.

You wrote you are 'not' going into S2, but I know you mean you are 'now'. ;) Maybe after I watch Saving Grace I'll try and watch Dead Like Me. I can't wait for you to see the movie and tell me what you think of Ian's character!

The actress who played the Scorpion Lady in Carnivale was our main local evening news anchor for many years.

Dead Like Me is great. I started watching it after the movie came out and got hooked. I've only seen season 1 and the movie so far though. (I have the whole series set. I'll have to watch season 2 once I finish with True Blood.)
