Reaper, Season 2 created by Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters (The CW, 2009) In its second season (and last before cancellation), Reaper sheds the underlying credibility necessary to carry its oddball humour. The storylines feature too little reaping and too much of Bert and Ben’s bromance and relationship issues. A dash more seriousness was required.
Reaper, Season 1 created by Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters (The CW, 2007-2008) A formulaic but appealing comedy. Sam Oliver’s parents have sold his soul to the devil. Still working his menial job, he must become also—reluctantly—a supernatural bounty hunter. Tyler Labine steals the show as Bert ‘Sock’ Wysocki, Sam’s irrepressible super-slacker friend.
