I own this DVD set of "Dead Like Me", Season 2, and I especially love this episode, "Always." Yardley Smith (the voice of Lisa Simpson) is a guest star, and she's just as adorable as Lisa Simpson. She stops by the restaurant to give Rube (Mandy Patinkin) a note. As she's leaving, she tells Roxy why and what's in the note. Rube visits his daughter and sings "Always." While I've never been one to cry (I'm no sissy girl), this one is so touching. Mandy Patinkin is excellent here and shows his theatrical ability to sing beautifully. They also let Rube show tenderness, and drop his usual callous character for a change. "Dead Like Me" really is a strange, sometimes twisted, and almost always funny series. This one episode takes a different turn. It's excellent.
