4.5 A Worthwhile Purchase deanlowdon | 23/03/2013 | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468) George Lass is going nowhere in life until she is killed by a toilet-seat that falls from the MIR space station. Finding herself with the powers of a Grim Reaper she reluctantly sets about collecting the souls of others before they die. With guidance from her new boss, Rube, she gradually accepts her new role but must resolve issues which still linger from her life before she is allowed to 'move on'.The pilot episode did a very good job of setting up the shows premise and the following episodes were entertaining as George attempted to adjust to her new role. The other reapers she was tasked to work with were a mixed bunch but Mandy Patinkin was excellent as the droll Rube and Jasmine Guy entertaining as the Sassy Roxy. While there were poignant moments throughout this first season the show was played mostly for laughs. On the whole it was mostly successful at crafting its own brand of black comedy and, while it will never be considered a classic, certainly made worthwhile viewing.
