  • A hugeley enjoyable episode.

    This is fairly light weight episode even for Dead Like Me but it's still very enjoyable though.

    The lightness of the episode does effectivley spotlight two very emotional scenes, though. Rube's distress over the returned letter for his daughter is painfully underplayed by Mandy Patinkin, while Daisy's heartfelt conversation with the rejected speed dater is very touching. The double-take reveal of his death is also very effective.

    On the lighter side, Rubes deflation of a queue jumper is a wonderfull "Falling Down" moment ("Is everyone in this line an ****? No? Just you then."), and a super-efficient George is quite frankly scary. George asking what her time going to the loo was, is hilarious.

    The Roxy and Mason plotlines are both thin almost to the point of pointlessness. Even though Mason is always entertaining.
