Dead Like Me
DVD Season 1
Kara – TwoCents Reviewer
If you’re going to end up with a nickname for your entire undead life, it probably doesn’t get much worse than Toilet Seat Girl. At the same time, if you’re going to be undead and have to hang around other undead people, you couldn’t do better than Rube, Mason, Roxie and Betty.
In this episode, we learn quite a lot. We find out all about reapers, gravelings, what happens to a soul if it’s not taken out of its body after it expires and exactly how patient Rube can be when George doesn’t do the job she’s been assigned. On a personal level, I relearned that Mason is awesome, Roxie is badass and getting totaled by a space station toilet seat is not the best way to go. I also have to mention that Betty’s shot on top of the building in the beginning, with her scarf trailing in the wind is one of the coolest and most memorable shots. Every time I see that shot, I think of how gorgeous the whole image is. I’m not exactly a fan of Rebecca Gayheart but she is pretty amazing right then. Well, her scarf and the wind machine are, actually.
