What I'm Watching: Reaper

Reaper: Season 1, Episode 10 “Cash Out” (C+)

I feel like the souls keep getting much easier to catch. The dragging through the wall gimmick is something we have not yet seen, but the vessels keep getting lamer and the villains themselves more innocent. Hell is supposed to be a place for the worst kind of sinners, yet these guys really are not as bad as they are made out to be. I do like the progress with the love lives of our two male protagonists. Sam dating is good for him, even if she might be the devil’s daughter, and I enjoyed seeing Andi ask about him and seeming cast off by the fact that he did not tell her he was involved with someone. Sock finally gets something serious to do, and Valerie Rae Miller has been criminally underused after brief appearances in the first few episodes. As I have said before, this show needs some work, but with a few small tweaks, it should do fine once it returns following the resolution of the writers’ strike.
