Storyline

Georgia 'George' Lass is an emotionally lost, 18-year-old slacker whose life changes (or ends) when she is killed by a toilet seat that falls from the sky after being separated from the orbiting Mir space station which hurtles to Earth. Immediately, she discovers that the afterlife does indeed exist, where she has been assigned a job as a 'Grim Reaper.' It's her job to reap the souls from the living and guide them to their eternal reward. Besides coping with her new job, she must learn to deal with being young and starting out and of course, being dead... Written by Anonymous

Promising pilot
14 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overall, this is a pretty promising Pilot. The show does a good job of establishing the lead character and making her more likable as the episode goes by. Along with that, it solidly introduces us to all of the other reapers that are sure to be regulars in the series. I do appreciate that they didn't overdo the sentimentality with George's family, and even after death they aren't afraid to not show them as the perfect family. As of now, the character development is spot on. I'm interested to see how the show will handle long-running arcs with the episodic "Reaper Case of the Week" that I'm guessing will be part of the show. But yes, I'm intrigued.
