What I'm Watching: Reaper

Reaper: Season 1, Episode 14 "Rebellion" (C)

I'm really not sure how to feel about this show. I feel like it's trying to be just a bit too modern by having Sam ask the devil for his cell phone number. I knew that there was something fishy about this whole demon-next-door-neighbor thing and them being gay was just a bit strange. The rebellion idea is interesting, but I think it played out too comically. Ray Wise continues to own the screen and I hope he gets rewarded somehow from some random awards guild (or the Emmys - wouldn't that be cool? Better than Neil Patrick Harris and Jon Cryer anyway). The element of the show I am happy with is that Andi and Sam are finally getting it on. That was in the making for way too long, and it should be great while it lasts, but I think I know how it will end, with him not telling her his secrets and her being unable to get over it. I hope I'm wrong.
