YMMV: Brimstone
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: You get exactly one guess whom he (go down) plays on that series.
  • Retroactive Recognition: In the episode 'Ashes', there's an appearance from Supernatural's Mark Pellegrino.
  • Unfortunate Implications: It's hinted at in a few episodes that the Afterlife is pretty much run on Lawful Stupid rules: you sin, you go to Hell. Period. No mitigating circumstances considered. A couple of the 113 - not to mention Zeke himself - are actually quite sympathetic, basically decent people who made one big error in judgement...but that doesn't save them from eternal torment. The big one that kicks the plot in motion is that it doesn't even matter if you follow a different religion; if your people were conquered by Abrahamics, then you're judged as one. Ashur Badaktu AKA Detective Ash was a high priestess of a pagan religion which Abrahamics exterminated to the last man, meaning there was no one left to carry on her beliefs and condemning her to Hell by default. You cannot imagine how pissed off she is.
