theram05 -> Reaper Season 1 (22/11/2007 11:12:48 AM)

Anyone watching this? My brother put me onto it, and I must say its actually alright. Bit of dead like me, a bit of Chuck in it, and over all, a good laugh.

Am I on my own?




Felix -> RE: Reaper Season 1 (22/11/2007 11:24:34 AM)

I watched the first few episodes, its quite funny and the guy who plays the devil is brilliant. I had actually completely forgotten about it until you posted this though, so it cant be that good. [:D]




Spartacus -> RE: Reaper Season 1 (22/11/2007 11:47:16 AM)

I love it, of course the Devil makes the show what it is. Before I watched it I thought it would end turning into a bag of crap with the same thing happening every episode but found it very enjoyable.




theram05 -> RE: Reaper Season 1 (22/11/2007 4:24:58 PM)

Yea the guy who plays the devil is the making and breaking of the show, but credit too to the dufus kid whose soul was sold, he's brilliantly played by that guy from that dodgy sitcom about the Irsih American borthers with the hot wife. (could I be anymore vague....!)

I think its worth a watch and will continue to look it up for a while anyway, am only up to 3 at the moment.

Chuck and Reaper are the only new TV programs that have really interested me this year. I agree that the best thing about the show is Ray Wise's portrayal of the Devil. It seems like a role he was born to play. One irritation is Sam's wise-ass best friend 'Sock'. Sometimes I feel like pulling an 'Elvis Presley' when his ugly mug appears on screen. Wise-Ass sidekicks can be amusing, but this guy is a few remarks short of anti-social behavior.




Helo -> RE: Reaper Season 1 (26/11/2007 2:02:39 PM)

Just when I think this show is about to slip into crap soap opera territory, they spin a great plot out.  Can't recall there being an episode last week but the previous weeks was a blast....

SPOILER ALERT...
The whole Bonnie & Clyde theme was a cracker.  Loved the appearances of Curtis Armstrong as Russ (Moonlighting fans rejoice!), and Mercedes McNab (Buffy's Harmony).  Russ's flat was a joy to behold, so much retro heaven stuff (Beta? Of course!).
And Sock's fantasy about Doris was the stuff of Legend.

Spoliers END

Agree that Ray Wise as the Devil is the real star of the show, but Ted is a also a legend. Far funnier than Big Mike.

harmony, fuck, thats who it was! She was hot......!

Bret Harrison = Hugh Grant + Jake Gyllenhaal.

Fact.

Is that meant to be a good thing?

Decided to download the pilot today on a whim, fantastic! Really loved, twas very funny, the main the guys best friend is hilarious, and of course the devil (but that goes without saying).




Fanboyslayer -> RE: Reaper Season 1: US SPEED (13/12/2007 10:56:51 AM)

I'm downloading, but it should be picked up by someone, it really is class, the devil is the clincher, but it is funny.

Thanks theram.  I read somthing about it a while back and have been waiting for it to start on Sky. Thought it had started and I'd missed it!  Will keep my eyes peeled it's bound to be picked up by FX or some such channel hopefuly.




theram05 -> RE: Reaper Season 1: US SPEED (28/2/2008 2:26:08 PM)

Anyone know if this has restarted in the US?




Zaphod121 -> RE: Reaper Season 1: US SPEED (28/2/2008 5:45:01 PM)

Reaper will be returning with 5 new episodes starting April 22nd Link
No word yet on whether there will be a second season.

theoriginalcynic -> RE: Reaper Season 1: US SPEED (5/3/2008 2:10:51 PM)

That's incredibly annoying as the series could have been great given a second season.  Glad Smallville's been picked up (without Lex!) What a shock! Back to reaper anyway and it's not official yet is it?




theram05 -> RE: Reaper Season 1: US SPEED (5/3/2008 2:15:13 PM)

Fuckin gutted. Whats this shit all about?!

theoriginalcynic -> RE: Reaper Season 1: US SPEED (5/3/2008 2:19:46 PM)

It's annoying but it's down to the viewers, 2.6 million is not enough for shows that cost alot to make.  Surprised that Supernatural is coming back with low ratings.  How long can the CW survive if things don't pick up? Dumb ass americans don't know quality TV if it hit them in the face and said "here I am quality TV"

Is Reaper sleeping with the fishes?

No its just been moved to midseason meaning season 2 will be start in the new year. I think this will end up being its last outing though




matthewforan -> RE: Reaper Season 1: US SPEED (12/11/2008 5:13:52 PM)

I've been watching this on saturday mornings it's been pretty good, one of my mates said he didn't really like it but he also didn't like Chuck which I really like. But yeah it's been good, Sock is a great character.

Caster -> RE: Reaper Season 2... (1/2/2009 11:35:05 PM)

It's just a watered down Dead Like Me for the O.C crowd.  Lost interest by episode 2.

But still it bugs you 12 months on?
I never watched Dead Like Me or the O.C. I just enjoy the show for what it is!
And the fact you gave up at Episode 2 means you missed the whole point of the show and where it was going.... ah well....
