Does anyone watch this show?

It was the one on CW about the guy whose parents allegedly sold his soul to the devil, so now he has to run around town doing the devil's dirty work and sending souls back to hell.

It doesn't really have anything particularly witty going for it, but the slapstick comedy is always good for an otherwise dull weeknight. Plus, I love Sock's character. :awesome

I think it aired one or two years ago, but any news of a second season dropped off the face of the earth for a while. But anyways, the second season is slated to start on March 3, CW at 9:00 pm ET after 90210. Can't wait ^_^

Weird. I just watched the first season for the first time in the last two days.

Anyways, yeah, it's cool. I think Ray Wise may actually be the devil.

My favourite characters are Sock and the devil at the DMV.

Also, DarthBill, 'because' is spelled wrong in your avatar.

It's the only good show on CW besides Supernatural (Smallville is dead to me). It has a good concept and for the love of god they better explain Sam's contract before the show gets canceled.

This sounds like a very interesting show to me. I've never heard of it before, but...

/goes off to torrent the first season.

This is one of my favorite shows and I'm waiting patiently for the second season to start.

Sam's contract better be explained soon, but I'm more interested in something else.

Like what's up with Sam's dad, for instance. Is he a demon or an angel or something? No human could survive being buried alive like that. Oh well, I'm sure it'll be explained this season. Hopefully.

Ditto. It's pretty hilarious at times, too. It almost doesn't need an overarching story, because the characters are all so awesome. I was pretty excited when I heard it was coming back.

Damn I forgot about that. Wasn't the mom also, or was it just the Dad?

Just the dad so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if the mom was also like that.

Well it would probably be a good guess that shes at least bare minimum magically inclined because when Sam told her what happened to his dad their was nothing but her little act and she went out and dug him up with no hesitation that he was still alive and kicking after being buried alive like that. However what I'm really interested to see is where this idea chain that Sam is really the Devil's son is going to lead.

Anlun
02-11-2009, 10:13 PM
^^That's what it was, she helped dig him out without surprise. And yeah the devil's son thing would be cool to see.

Sock's Chinese sister is hot. I can't wait for this show to come back. It's a lot of fun like phych but with more super natural special effects.

I had really been under the impression that the whole Sam is the Devils kid was kind of an unknown when the season finale aired but I guess not seeing that preview. Also Sock is awesome "My sister, gotta rmember she's my sister."

Tonight's episode was...really weird. We get no closure on what's up with Sam's (adopted?/human) dad? :( And I really wanted to see those two gay demon guys again, whichever one was left after the finale.

Btw, did anyone catch what happened


to the cattle prod after that black guy knocked Sam out with it? The devil didn't seem that upset about it...or even mention it at all.

I assume the guy just threw it down and ran for it because the devil seemed to know that Sam had succeeded.

This episode seemed a bit weird to me. Maybe because I haven't watched the show for so long, but it just seemed kind of... off. Hmm.

Anyways, I greatly enjoyed the episode, especially when the fairy music played as Sam descended from the roof. Of course, I predicted Sam would use the water to conduct the electricity as soon as he used the hose on the souls. I'll have to thank Pokemon for allowing me to actually guess something like that.

The Devil was brilliant, as always. Though, I thought he wasn't very happy when Sam was completely willing to go drinking with him. And, does the Devil even know that the free soul had escaped from hell with all those gang members?

The only downside to this episode was Andy, who I thought was really bitchy. I just hope it won’t continue throughout the season.

The episode seemed off to me too, mainly because of what's been said, there wasn't closure. WTF happened to the dad, wasn't he dug out, thus not dead? When was it said that Sam is the Devil's son. I know the gay demon thought it enough to capture Sam, but why is Sam now so sure about it?

Really it wasn't a bad episode it just annoyed me that they didn't touch on the past season enough. I thought the raddish scene was hilarious
"I like radishes? I don't understand, like sexually? Now that's just wrong".

Well its not even just that Sam is sure about it that confuses me, the Devil seems to be going along with it to, maybe hes just fucking with Sam but I just find it odd how not just Sam but everyone seems sure hes the Devil's kid.

Also with the dad Im willing to let it go for now, because the way I see it he has to lay low for a while. If anyone at all sees he isnt still six feet under shits going to hit the fan. The demons thought he was human and that he was dead, Sam thinks hes human and dead, and as far as we can tell the Devil thinks he was human and dead. If he suddenly pops back up without a scratch, that gives the demons a whole new set of issues with Sam, it would probably break whatever deal he was so worried about messing up when Sam was asking about his real father and just cause a lot of shit in general.

Next, Andi, jesus they really cranked her bitch meter to 11 for this episode, I've never liked her but she just got almost unbearably annoying in this episode. Anyone besides me hoping for Cadi the devil girl to come back?

Last, who was paying attention to the Devils little speech at the end about the terrible things Sam would do under his command? That sounded like a very fun bit of foreshadowing.

Anlun
03-04-2009, 04:16 PM
Yeah I liked that little speech at the end. My guess is that Sam isn't the Devil's son but probably the AntiChrist.

The light on the prod was red when he poked the last demon multiple times. It finished recharging to green when he decided to hand th prod to the demon believing that there are ways to get his soul back. He even told Andy about the getting back soul thing. It's a little confusing.

Also Sock's hot Japanese sister is the same actor who played Kenso Takase's lover in Heroes.

Well Reaper was crushed horribly by American Idol last night, which is pretty much what the CW had in mind when they put it in 90210's time slot. They are sacrificing Reaper to save 90210.

Please don't remind me. >_< I'm not holding out much hope for a season three.

Then again, I have no cable at home, so...at least it'll be over before summer vacation begins. :rolleyes:

The title of the last episode for season 2 sounds a bit promising/conclusive.

That's for sure. It looks like everything is going to be wrapped up this season and I really doubt there's going to be a season three, no matter how many fans plead for it. Which I see as a bit of a good thing since Reaper seems like a show that wouldn’t do well with lots of seasons.

Alright, this is my favorite episode of the show so far

The Devil was a fucking bad ass when he took out the demons, and it seems Sam is getting a little more practice with the whole hand to hand combat aspect of his job. At this point I'm kind of hoping Sam gives in and goes all Damien because I want to see him doing some Devil shit like we saw tonight and last I wonder whats going on with Ben and the demon girl. Has little Benny gone darkside?

Vira
03-11-2009, 01:56 AM
Damn it! I completely forgot that Reaper was on tonight. I keep thinking it shows on Thursday, not Tuesday. This is unfortunately happening to me a lot lately.

Any of you guys know where I can go download it or something?

I just finished watching the latest episode. And I was like 'OMFG! Awesome' :)

I don't think the writers have ever put so many twists into one single Reaper ep.

Cyclops

I just watched the most recent episode and it was overall great, but the Sock/Step-Sister stuff was funny for five minutes in the first episode and got old real fast. We get it, he wants to bang her but he cant, you don't need to constantly remind the audience of this.

I still say the best part of this series is Ray Wise as the Devil. Without him I wouldn't be as in to this show as I am. The way he sent those demons after Sam as an elaborate plan to frame him was awesome. In fact, every scene with him is awesome.

Ben remains my second favorite character on the show. I've always found him more entertaining than Sam or Sock. The whole Ben/Rabbit side-plot was great.

Really, my only complaint about the season so far is the CW's interference with the show. They sexed it up so it looks more like their trash 90210 and Gossip Girl-type shows. The CW is the reason so much time is being spent on relationships this year, such as Sock/Step-Sister, Sam/Andi, and now Ben/Random Demon that came out of nowhere.

Vira
03-18-2009, 02:16 AM
Okay, I think this is one of the best episodes in the season. I didn't have the urge to fastforward during any of the scenes (not that I could anyway) and I liked both the soul and Ben's girlfriend. The best part of the episode was the 'Les Nessman', Sock and Andi's fight for dominanace and the last scene where Sam tells the Devil at how he (the devil) did a good thing.

The only downside I saw was that it didn't have anything to do with Sam's mom or the father crisis.

Also, did Sam refer to the Devil as 'dad' when he was talking to the soul in the bar? I think he said dad, though I may have misheard it.

Anlun

I liked the soul in this episode but the plot regressed back to the lame 'filler soul capture'. They need to find a balance between moving the main plot forward while at the same time have the soul capture and secondary story lines in the episode.

Problem is, if he's not out playing soul rodeo, the series' name gets inaccurate. Otherwise I'd suggest other odd jobs that Sam could be doing for Hell.

Apparently Anthony Head auditioned for the role as well. That would have been epic.

So the last episode of Reaper was fairly awesome, even with the detraction of the thundercunt Andi it was all in all fairly awesome. Its very cool to see little bits and pieces of Sam's devil powers starting to show through and hints of what the devil has been talking about with his destiny. Also I really enjoyed the last scene with Nina and Sam, its a twist I wasn't expecting at all.

Krogan

Sorry about the doublepost, but I thought it was worth it, so I dont know if anyone was watching Reaper tonight but damn I did not see that shit coming.

Morgan got taken the fuck out, it was like a pack of piranhas or something and Im curious about the destiny thing Steve was talking about.

Wait, what? What have they done to indicate that their relationship might be creepy? (Granted, I've only skimmed over the last 3 episodes)

I really expected the season (and possibly series) finale to be a tad more epic than the trailer scene. Sam looks utterly bored flipping quarters, lol.

Yeah that petition to have it brought back to life and such... not likely to happen like the dresden files TV series. If ABC is serious in buying it, there should be some word before July for a new season.

The writer's strike really fucked the series with a year gap between seasons.
