* AnnoyingBackgroundEvent: TeamDad Rube and Team {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Mason are stuck in an airport with a crying baby in the background. It's complicated by Mason smuggling a (leaky) package of cocaine [[TreasureChestCavity up his rear end]] and Rube attracting attention from security when he [[NotSoAboveItAll cracks a bit]] and mutters that he wants to "kill that [[PrecisionFStrike fuckin]]' baby."

Added DiffLines:

** Other noticeable differences were George stating in the pilot that her dad is having an affair with a student... only to seemingly retcon this away so that George can unwittingly help ''initiate'' the affair after she died by introducing them to each other.
** The first season shows early on that Reapers look different in the eyes of the living, and George had a "real George" stand-in actress whenever she is shown from the point of view of someone else. However this is largely ignored and never shown at all once the 2nd season starts, only being referenced once on Halloween.

* {{Bowdlerization}}: The Sci Fi Channel took out the curses. That alone cut out so much time from the episodes that they actually had to re-include some deleted scenes to even it out.

[[DirectToVideo A DVD movie came out in February of '09]].'09]], after much fan outcry for a revival and reignited interest thanks to the show frequently getting reruns marathoned on the SyFy channel. It aired in Canada on January 1st. ''Most'' of the original cast return, although it was not too warmly received by critics or fans.



** Whatever developing connection growing between Mason and Daisy by the end of season 2 was completely ignored in the direct to DVD movie. Similarly no attempt was made to explore whatever season 2 was starting to imply about George's bond with gravelings.

* AnimalMotifs: Throughout the series, frogs are used as a recurring symbol for life, death, and change. George herself has a pet frog that belonged to her first reap that apparently followed her home, and a frog-shaped pendant given to her by her [[CoolOldLady grandmother]].

** Probably the most glaring example of all would be the halloween episode where Joy and Reggie fall asleep outside lying on the grass in an open cemetery dressed only in light thin spring-wear. And somehow they don't die of frostbite.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Anyone in the northwest could tell you that Seattle is rarely that sunny and bright for more than a week per year, much less all year round. Reggie and her mom sleeping in casual spring clothes outside in the middle of fall would have more likely given them frostbite.
** {{Averted|Trope}} however, as the show wasn't filmed in California at all; it was filmed in ''Vancouver''.

Georgia ("George") Lass is an unmotivated eighteen-year-old slacker; a college dropout, she's returned to live with her unhappily-married parents (Joy and Clancy) and withdrawn younger sister (Reggie) in her family's Seattle home. To make her miserable existence even ''worse'', her father is cheating on his wife with one of his students, and her mother is so uptight that she thinks the word 'moist' sounds pornographic. (Her mother [[CharacterDevelopment later got over it]].)
