DEAD LIKE ME
In the mythology of "Dead Like Me," certain people, when they die, are offered the job of grim reapers. They get a rapidly healing physical body (which has a different face when seen by the living) and the chance to stay in the world until they collect a requisite number of souls. Then, the job passes to the last dead person on their list. The newest addition to this team is Georgia "George" Lass, who died at 18 after being struck by flaming space debris. She was pretty unhappy in life, and learning that death doesn't offer relief from living is not sitting very well with her.

The series also introduces viewers to animal enrichment programs, in which members of the zoo's staff try to duplicate an animal's habits that are unique to them in the wild.

THE OUTER LIMITS
"There is nothing wrong with your television set." That famous line opens each episode of the classic science fiction anthology series as part of a narration that makes people think their TVs are being controlled. Episodes of the series, which numbered 49 over the course of two seasons, range from a mix of sci-fi and horror that feature "scary monster" motifs to episodes focused on the sci-fi aspects of the stories. Episode writers include such notables as series creator Leslie Stevens and Harlan Ellison.
The famed San Diego Zoo is the setting for this series that showcases different species of wild animals that reside at the facility and the dedicated staffers who care for them. Grizzly bears, rhinoceroses and even armadillos are among the creatures featured on "Wild World," which provides information about the creatures' living environments and offers key facts about them. The show, which is targeted at teenagers, also includes stories about zoo-enrichment programs that help animals initiate natural behavior.
