Dead Like Me - S02E08 - Episode: "The Escape Artist"
Original airdate: September 12, 2004
Dead Like Me is an American television comedy-drama starring Ellen Muth and Mandy Patinkin as grim reapers in Seattle, Washington.
The show was created by Bryan Fuller for the Showtime network,
where it ran for two seasons in 2003 and 2004 before cancellation.
Eighteen-year-old Georgia "George" Lass (played by Muth) is the show's protagonist and narrator.
George dies early in the pilot episode, leaving her mother (Cynthia Stevenson) and rest of her family behind at a point when her relationships with them were on shaky ground.
She becomes one of the "undead", a grim reaper. George soon learns that a reaper's job is to remove the souls of people, preferably right before they die, and escort them until they move on into their afterlife.
The show explores the "lives" and experiences of a small team of such reapers - led by Rube (played by Patinkin) - as well as the post-mortem changes in George and her family as they deal with George's death.
While collecting a soul at a country club, George nearly falls for a reap. Rube, who's terrible with kids, struggles when he must transform into a second-grade teacher to get close to his next soul.
Mason and Roxy, however, get the best assignment of all: reaping in Cancún.
