Did You Know?


William Sadler, who plays the Grim Reaper in this episode, also plays this exact version of the Grim Reaper in Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey (1991). The bookends and a majority of its jokes would later be reused for Bordello of Blood (1996) and feature another appearance from William Sadler, albeit as a mummy instead of the Grim Reaper.

My daughter's named after character
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To be honest, we don't remember much about this episode. But, my husband and I didn't have a name picked out for our daughter, even though i was 8 1/2 months pregnant. After watching this episode, we looked at each other and both went "Simone"....hmm...it stuck! Great memories of this series, and this episode in particular! I do remember that Chelsea Field and Corey Feldman were in the episode. She went on to marry Scott Bakula from "quantum leap" fame, then later "star trek-enterprise". We both felt that this is one of the best series ever put on television. Great writing, great acting, and humor. We still watch re-runs when ever they come on the sci-fi network....and now our kids are hooked as well!!!
