The doctor is in
6 November 2007 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Season six is, overall, underwhelming. But this is one of the better episodes. It finds two bumbling mortuary security guards getting mixed up with a mad doctor who is stealing bodies to search for their 'souls.' but when the doctor realizes that he soul can only be extracted from the living, one of the guards may be in way over their heads.

Hank Azaria does a fine job, as does Austin Pendleton as the mad doctor, but it's country musician Travis Tritt who walks away with the show as the kindhearted, dim-witted Charlie. Ben Stien also shows up a the boss who ends up firing the inept guards.

The episode is finely tongue-in-cheek, decent splatter and top-notch acting. It is one of the highlights of the entire series, if only for being surrounded by lackluster episodes.
