What I’m Watching: Dead to Me

Dead to Me: Season 3, Episode 3 “Look at What We Have Here” (B+)

It’s fitting for a show like this to feature a medical waiting room playing a song with music about it being time to die, and Jen was ready to go off on the nurse who proudly expressed ownership over the playlist. The fact that Judy was aware of abnormal results that she should have followed up and didn’t might haunt her, but she’s not always one to look back and regret the past. Jen praying was a big deal since that’s absolutely not something she usually does, and I enjoyed seeing Christopher again for the first time in a while since he’s an enjoyable character who used to be a much bigger part of the show. Judy did get bad news but, as these people tend to do, chose not to share that with Jen and instead lie to her. Haven’t they learned that the truth always catches up with them? I guess that’s not entirely true since Nick was more interested in getting Ben to a meeting and making riddler jokes than asking questions about the car he was suspiciously covering up, and the bird has now been officially burned after Ben gleefully brought it right to Judy so that she would be able to easily destroy the evidence. The fact that Garret Dillahunt’s Agent Moranis is on the case, on the other hand, is cause for concern since that terrific actor typically only plays very determined characters who are often villainous in nature even if they’re supposed to be on the good side of the law.
