-->'''Zane''': There are ''golf carts'' in the afterlife. 'horrible little things--sound like a mosquito farting down a straw. "To allow employees a hasty transfer betwixt departments." S'what the handbook says. "Hasty." "Betwixt." This on a plane of existence conceptually untroubled by the likes of time 'n space. Stupid, innit? I popped one open, once. ''No engine''--only this swirly lightshow bollocks made of mandelbrot patterns and bloody eighth dimensional cosmohedrons--same as everything. Tells you a lot about the mind that runs this place, that. I mean, think about it--he could've made bleeding' ferraris. Or chariots, if you like. Laser-spaffin' nukecopters, fuckin' seraphim made of smoke 'n bile. He chose ''golf carts.'' My name's Bastard Zane. I hate it here.

* ''Series/TheGoodPlace'' depicts a heavenly afterlife where people who were very ethical, generous, and kind in life (although even Florence Nightingale didn't make the cut!) end up in their own neighborhood run by an architect. The neighborhood we see in the show ''does'' seem like a really idyllic place where every whim and need is taken care of, but it's like a quirky EverytownAmerica with, for example, stores selling frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. Plus the whole afterlife is run like a corporate service industry, complete with a bureaucratic scoring system to determine who gets into the Good Place or the Bad Place.

* ''Series/House" has a lot of near-death experiences on the show. During one of them, he finds himself in what's implied to be a limbo-like part of the afterlife. It looks like a bus.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': [[spoiler:Crowley the Demon, when he becomes King of Hell]] changes Hell from fire and brimstone, to an eternal waiting room.
** It's actually worse than that. The damned are condemned to wait in a ''queue'' that stretches on forever, slowly moving forward one soul at a time, only to discover when they get to the front, they're at the back of the line again.

His reason for making this change was because he noticed that a good portion of people sent to Hell were masochists who were TooKinkyToTorture with the line again.traditional methods, but ''nobody'' likes waiting in line.

* In the film ''Liliom'' (and the Hungarian play it's based on), the eponymous character discovers after his suicide that Heaven is exactly like the police station he was in earlier in the film, from his treatment by the man at the desk to the sign on the wall that says "No Spitting".
