Death Becomes The Hardy Boys

...a really shitty Julia Roberts movie a really shitty episode of Charmed the ethereal plane. Which looks an awful lot like the actual plane, only there are now two Deans, one a stumpy little bow-legged rapidly cooling corpse on Doctor Robert's examining table, and the other a stumpy little bow-legged specter now ambling over to examine his own body. Didn't they used to pull special filtering tricks with the camera to indicate when the guys had crossed over? Whatever. I suppose special camera filters got axed from this season's budget along with all the funds they used to have for mullet rock. Yawn.

Thank you very much." Spectral El Deano spins around to find...Capital-D Death sitting at the Chinese luncheonette! DUN! Except, you know, not, because Death's presence is what Dean was asking for in the first place. Stupid show. Death greets Spectral El Deano amiably enough, Spectral El Deano gulps, and then the scene is rudely interrupted by the...
