This is another american import thats starts tonight on E4 at 9pm.
It looks pretty good. It's directed by Kevin Smith and follows the story of a young slacker who finds out his parents sold his soul to the devil before he was born. On his 21st birthday Satan appears to tell the guy that he must work as a bounty hunter tracking down evil souls who have escaped from hell.\

It appears to be a sitcom in the same vein as My Name is Earl or Scrubs but with a supernatural spin.
Anybody gonna be watching. Or have already seen elsewhere?

Its nothing like either of those shows. Its an okay programme though, not brilliant but has its moments

I've only seen the trailers and read some blurb on tinternet bout it, so I got the impression it was the same type of humor as those shows.

Its much more the normal 42 minute episode format than sitcom style. Its much closer to the likes of Buffy than Scrubs... not that i'm saying its anywhere near that standard

Phew thats ok then. Plus it's directed by Kevin Smith so thats a huge plus. Is it only the first episode, or does he direct or the whole series?

Ray Wise is a legend. Somehow he was born to play the devil.

It is a remarkably generic show with the bounty hunter for the devil tag line sounding more origninal than it actually is.  That said it is quite an enjoyable showwith a nice performance by the leads.

It starts on wednesday, there was some confusion as some listings had it a starting last week. I think those folks who have already seen it, have watched it on download or in another country prehaps.

So did anybody watch it?

I must say- Im pretty impressed. I thought it was funny stuff, of course it has the usual "boys in love with girl" element in the show but I really like the lead, even though i cant remember his name, LOVED his slacker friend Bert and really liked Ray Wise as the Devil in it, ill be tuning in next week!

I found it really good too, although I'm not sure of the longevity of the show. Its heavy on the humour, which waters down the effects of any drama, so its strictly a comedy in my book. I was hoping it would be played slightly more serious, but with good laughs too (yes, like buffy). As it is, its more of a high concept comedy like my name is earl, just aimed at a more youthful audience.

Well I really enjoyed it and will certainly be watching the next few to see how it goes. Although after the death of Studio 60, Firefly and Carnivale I'm starting to think I'm jinxed so I better not enjoy it too much .

cant say i rated it :/ i liked sock but that was about it.

i was expecting a bit more comedy but the plot just bored me to death. and i dont think i'd tune in every week for a monster of the week type show.

Quite a good first episode. Some good humour in it.

Enjoyable first episode - Smith is producer but he only directed ep1.  He didn't write it... the love interest is cute.  Yep, in these times of - not much US TV - left to watch I'll see where it goes

I enjoyed the first episode when I watched it in the summer, before they recast the female lead. I really enjoyed it, but the 2nd episode put me right off. It was way too slow, and felt as if they could have easily cut the first 20 minutes. I haven't checked out episode 3, but I will when I get some time. I'd recommend Chuck instead. Both shows do kind of the same thing, except Chuck does it a whole lot better.
