Reaper Pilot ep.

Well episode 1 has come and gone. Not the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life but it is worth Tivoing (if my Tivo doesn’t crap out again). I’m glad to see that it has a very different tone from Brimstone. As per the descriptions of it, this definitely has a more comedic bent. It does require a bit of suspension of disbelief in the reactions of peripheral characters. I mean honestly I don’t care how good a friend you are I think most people would be a little more freaked if their friend came up to them saying their parents had sold their soul to the devil.

Tyler Labine as expected was pretty funny he got some of the best lines in my opinion granted a little over the top at times but it fits in with the quirkiness of the show. I must say that one way in which Brimstone has spoiled me is in John Glover’s portrayal of the devil. For someone who has never seen Brimstone, I’m sure the actor in Reaper is fine but having seen Brimstone I got totally spoiled by John Glover’s ability to make one actually be amused at what is really a scary concept and character. I suspect that no one does snarkiness like John Glover. I don’t watch Smallville but I’m sure he was just as good portraying Lionel Luther.

Anyway, just my thoughts. Even if I don’t watch it live it is a program worth Tivoing.
