EPISODE ONE (11/21/15)
SUMMARY: A motley group wait in line to ride a
literal "death coaster." Most in line are there to die, though
nebbishy Eugene keeps letting people ride ahead of him. However,
the ride also attracts professional thrill seeker Chad, who is
looking to finally rehabilitate his image after shitting on a
bald eagle as a kid while tightrope walking across the Grand
Canyon. Jill, the new intern, is excited to be working there,
but her boss, Tom, is just tired of his job. The most unhappy
person in line is Karen, a middle aged woman in a wheelchair.
When she finally boards the coaster, she is surprised to find
Abigail, a girl who was in line, sitting next to her. Karen
unburdens to Abigail, and dies with a smile on her face.
