I was talking to my friend and he asked "Why do you like Death so much" but he hasn't seen the show. So I told him "Because he is a very likable guy!" And his FACE WAS PRICELESS! He looked at me like I was the craziest person in the world
I never understood why people always portray Death as evil. As this post said, he is the definition of neutrality. If you believe in some sort of heaven or hell, he's the middle, he doesn't have a side. He either does stuff (theoretically) for his job or for his benefit. He doesn't "take sides" so he's not a threat.
