Season 2 finds Sam Oliver(Bret Harrison), Sock(Tyler Labine), Ben(Rick Gonzalez), and Andi(Missy Peregrym)continue to fight the good fight amid Sam's ongoing mission as a bounty hunter for the Devil(Ray Wise), finding escaped souls and sending them back. There are a few new ongoing story arcs this season and some new recurring cast members. Sam continues to find a way out of his deal, his relationship with Andi suffers, and yet there just may be someone who can help. Elsewhere, Sock finds himself attracted to a young woman who turns out to be verrrry close to his family, and Ben begins a relationship with a demon named Nina(Jenny Wade). If that isn't enough, there is the ongoing story of how Sam is dealing with his deal with the devil and how, or if, it's changing him.Read more ›
And I kind of liked it. I liked it enough to watch the show regularly that fall.
Then something happened. Halfway through its first season, Reaper became awesome. Completely and totally awesome. Burned contracts, magically moved bowling balls, gay demons, full-on rebellions, and true love! It was great and I got a little obsessed. When that first season became available on DVD, I bought it right away.
I waited with great anticipation for Season 2 of Reaper. It was a long wait. In a programming decision probably derived from Hell itself, the CW chose to delay Reaper's return until the spring. And it was a short season.
But what a season! Yes, there were some low points (just pretend that Sock's stepsister isn't there, and everything will be fine). But the high points more than made up for it. Sam, our beloved and eternally-screwed bounty hunter, has to deal with an even more intrusive Devil, an unredeemable half-brother, a freaked-out girlfriend, and Sock. His sidekicks, the aforementioned Sock and the animal-loving Ben, are also in prime form -- as always, they do an excellent job failing to be of any help whatsoever to Sam. And then there's Nina, Ben's new girlfriend. Ben's new *demon* girlfriend, that is, who continues Reaper's unblemished record of making every demon pretty much the coolest person you'd never want to meet.
Unfortunately, Reaper may have met its end, done in by a lack of network support and by a little show called "American Idol." But, while I desperately cling to a fading hope for Season 3, I will be able to take comfort in the joys of Season 2. Can't wait to get my DVDs!
I bought both seasons and have enjoyed them all over again, t.v. Is so bad I buy all the good stuff from Amazon and do not pay $100.00 per moth cable bills like some people I know. Best of all thanks to amazon the price is always good and I can watch what I want when I want commercial free, nothing I like better than a new liner commercial coming on at 80 db with stay fresh wings announcing freedom for sale when you buy their product. NOT!!!!
Take control of your viewing and buy the series you like on DVD'S from Amazon ah now that's freedom!
As if demons dating humans wasn't controversial enough; Season 2 added a variation of the Woody Allen - Soon Yi situation being played out between Sock and Kristen (step sister-brother relationship). If the Series writers had to, it might have been better to keep the sexual tension alive without having Sock act on it - Maybe that's why the Series got cancelled to begin with .. that was a clear family no-no that Sponsors would shy away from.
Overall Reaper was a great series. Wish Netflix would bring "Reaper" back along "Better Off Ted".
