Star Trek: Discovery is not the first show which Bryan Fuller departed shortly after its creation. Fuller also left his very first series, Dead Like Me, after only a handful of episodes. And yet, it could be argued that Dead Like Me maintained the essence of Fuller's vision long after he was gone.

In this episode of Stage Nine, Mike is joined by Sarah of The Talk Film Society to look at Dead Like Me. We discuss what makes it inherently Fuller, what place it has inside the larger Fuller canon, and what that might indicate about Fuller's lasting impact on Discovery. In news, we take a look at a couple new Discovery directors, Jonathan Frakes and, presumably, Doug Aarniokoski.
