Body of Proof Review: Dead Man Walking

at . Comments

Ethan loses a patient on "Lazarus Man."

If he were a doctor in a hospital that would be a tragedy, but here at the morgue it means something different. When a man you think is dead gets up and walks off the table, calling it weird is an understatement.

In the Body of Proof Lab

Curtis' reaction is my favorite. He's not upset with the new girl, Dani, for bringing back a live one. The paramedics are the ones who declared him dead but he makes sure she rechecks her bodies before she puts them in a bag from here on out and he makes her dress professionally. I love that bit of reality. This isn't high school. You have a job. Dress appropriately.

Ethan and the new girl make a cute couple. There's definitely potential here and I look forward to learning more about her, in small doses, and seeing more of them.

Bud's reaction to the dead man come to life is another favorite. He plays the tired, put upon detective so well. If the now-living dude dies during surgery, he'll be stuck with a murder investigation but no crime scene. In other words: his job will become ever harder.

Samantha's revelation about her brother seems a little out of left field to me. It is odd that she never mentioned it to her partner. Of course, we don't know how long these two have been partners, so it just may not have come up. I suppose it's not the easiest thing to slip into a conversation.

So... Peter's first great love isn't what it used to be. Time changes things. It's wonderful that Megan got to meet his family. She's obviously looking for more of a bond with Peter, even if that's just friendship for now. Do you see these two becoming more in the future? I think there's potential but it's a long ways off.

The conclusion of our murder story is a bit frightening. The chief of staff would rather let hundreds of children suffer and possibly die of cancer than risk her political career?!? Now that's got to lead to some seriously bad karma.

I do hope this episode sheds some light on being a marrow donor. It's easy to get tested and put on the registry and if you're a match you can save someone's life. You can find more information at

Im a huge fan of Dana Delaney's. She's a great actress and shows she has fun on everything she does. Loved her arc on Castle. But for some reason seems they can't find her fitting on the show anymore. What with the ex and her boss romance, it seems like they had already passed that page last season and now they are back like it never fact,the last episodes have been kind confusing and seemed out of order. Dana is a superb actress, but she deserves better, hope the show sticks, but now I have my doubts.


Have tried to like this, given the two solid performers in the leads but it's getting worse as it goes. Dana Delany tripping through a stableyard in those ludicrous heels? And behaving as if she and her husband divorced last week instead of five years ago? Dragging all her personal issues into the office? Hello? Have the writers never heard the word 'professional' or do they just not believe women are capable of behaving that way? Someone please tell them that the emotionally-retarded coroner has already been done, and there's a reason Crossing Jordan went off the air.


Megan and Peter need to stay partners, please no romance. I think Delany has been way off base with her reaction to her boss (who is dating her ex) regarding her daughter. Good entertainment but this segment was a little on the unbeliveable side, fun to watch. Curtis is great.


Really weak resolution. No Council Member builds a school, and murder to get to be mayor? Does not compute.


it was an entertainment episode, i like the final scene with Peter and Megan realizing they had a thing. i hope the keep working that.


I don't think Megan and Peter have any chemistry. I'm perfectly content having them stay "partners" throughout the rest of the series.


Curtis always makes me laugh. I want to work with Curtis. Megan and Peter will make a good couple eventually, but they're not there yet. I do hope they start bringing them closer together.


as usual another great show this is such a perfect casting of Dana delay I find it unusual there are no other comments for such a good show
