I the TV series "Dead Like Me" the heroine is killed by a toiletseat that fell from a spacestation.
No, it is part of the intro. She is then dead, or rather undead, and the story moves on from there.
I watch/follow hardly any series TV shows, but I did follow this one to completion. The first couple of years were very good especially if one likes dark humour. Towards the end like many such series the writers seem to run out of fresh material and quality tends to decrease. Anyway a very good series if you can get a chance to check it out.
