Meet Georgia Lass (who prefers to be called George). She is a young Seattle college dropout who is unhappy with life. She is always at odds with her mom, Joy. One day coming back from her temp job as a filing clerk, she is hit by the toliet seat of the re-entering Space Station Mir. Finding out she is now dead, she is recruited to become a grim reaper. As in life, she is a pain in the butt in death. She does not like the details of her job, and is always at loggerheads with her boss Rube. Her fellow grim reapers don't really take much of a liking to her either. She also learns grim reapers don't even get a free ride in death, as they must hold down regular jobs along with their death duties. Written by

Did You Know?
While Rube's cause of death is never outwardly stated, several of the second season episodes hint that on the night he was killed, Rube tried to rob a bank (the wanted poster Rube finds when searching for information about Rosie, and the gun he's constantly carrying around in his flashbacks).

Stay on his good side. He's like a volcano George. He erupts and spews lava in little villages. They run around, they run around for their lives. But you know he stops and you can go back to the safety of your own home.
Episodes in which clips from previous episodes are used (in particular the flashback episode, Nighthawks) give screen credit to the writers of any excerpts that are used, even if the clip is momentary. See more
