In “Dead To Me” on Netflix, Christina Applegate, right, and Linda Cardellini are newfound friends who relaunch their own lives after the recent deaths of their loved ones.

“Dead to Me” is my latest Netflix binge suggestion. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are just plain fun. Applegate is a grieving widow in need of anger-management classes; Cardellini is a free-spirited optimist looking for a friend. There’s dark humor, but some of the issues aren’t so funny — infidelity, infertility, menopause, murder. Throw in some dark twists and you have a thrilling dramedy, produced by Will Ferrell. There are 10 half-hour episodes. The series dragged a bit for me at the end, but the cliffhanger was worth it.
