Season 1
4.6 out of 5 stars (111) IMDb 7.9/10

For the first 20 years of his life, Sam wondered why his parents always let him get by with the least possible effort. Everything in his slacker world changed the day Sam turned 21 and discovered the truth: his parents sold his soul to the devil before he was born. Satan himself drops by to personally explain that Sam must now serve as his bounty hunter.

Sam Oliver (played by Bret Harrison) turned 21 and strange things started happening. After a visit from someone claiming to be The Devil, his parents finally confessed to him that before he was born they made a deal with the Devil and sold Sam's soul because Sam's dad was dying and wanted to get better. So while he's on this earth, Sam must go to work for the Devil as his bounty hunter, catching escaped souls and returning them to hell. These are bad guys, people who got sent to hell for a reason and escape to wreak havoc once again. Sam agrees, first because the Devil threatens his mother if he doesn't do it, and second because it gives his nowhere slacker life purpose (he works in a Home Depot type store) and he tells himself he's doing a good thing getting these baddies back where they belong. The work is plenty dangerous, but he does it with the help of his best friends and fellow slacker work buddies, Sock and Ben.

That's the basic premise for the start of the series, Sam has a girlfriend Andi that works with them and at first is unaware of his other job, and they have a jerk of a boss who's a funny character named Ted, a bit of a tool himself. Oh, and Sam captures escaped souls in vessels, which are common household items the Devil gives him for each grab: a dirt devil handvac, a toaster, a scyth, bubbles, anything really. When the soul has been captured, they get dropped off at a portal to hell which is anyplace that feels like hell on earth, in this case, the DMV. A DMV worker named Gladys collects the vessels and sends them south, she happens to be a demon, horns and everything.

The mythology comes in the second half, when we begin to discover that what Sam's parents told him may not be true. That's when things really get interesting.

Highly recommended! This show is for anyone who was a fan of the comedic side of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and 'Angel.' The angst and brooding darkness of 'Buffy' and 'Angel' was cautiously emerging near the end of the season, but this show is clearly a comedy with dramatic moments, not the other way 'round.

Critics and viewers unanimously loved the 1st episode written and directed by Kevin Smith of 'Chasing Amy' and 'Clerks' fame. Some critics and viewers however felt that later episodes relied too much on a formulaic 'demon of the week' main storyline centered on the antics of the cast to capture the demon, while interesting secondary storylines were given short shrift. By the end of the first season this was remedied by making the secondary storyline the capturing of the demon and allowing the main storyline to focus instead on character and plot development. Also introduced were multi-episode arcs while keeping most episodes stand-alone. By the season finale the consensus was that the series was now living up to the promise of the pilot.

I am NOT stating that I perceived any of these so-called difficiencies, but I am mentioning them so that any potential buyer who has heard of these supposed shortcomings understands that by all accounts the show had clearly hit its stride by the end of the season. If you see a drop-off in quality, rest assured it is quickly resolved. Many hardcore fans of 'Buffy' and 'Angel' forget the serious growing pains and shortcomings of the 1st seasons of each of these shows in light of the greatness that followed. Those shows were given a chance to find the right pace and tone and certainly so should 'Reaper.'

I truly love this show and anyone I recommended the show to who tuned in quickly became a rabid fan.

This show is scary and funny, charming and alarming, silly and thought-provoking. Awesome Devil (Ray Wise of Twin Peaks), cute sweet hero (Bret Harrison most recently of The Loop), funny characters, nice Scooby vibe among the friends. Mostly fun, but with serious story arcs related to demons, paternity, damnation, and heroism. I can't wait for the DVDs.

This show is hilarious and original from the very first episode on. It has some unevenness in the storyline, like Sam's vanishing little brother, but overall the quality of acting and writing is consistent. Ray Wise is a riot as the devil: slippery and charming, with some great one-liners. The boss at the Work Bench, Ted, is a perfect portrayal of a petty tyrant still working through his high school issues. Also great from late in the season are the gay neighbors when Sam moves out of his parents' house: no spoilers, but there is something strange about these two. Sam is a little too gullible to be believable sometimes (can he not remember that he's talking to the DEVIL?), but that might be part of why he's so likable. I also got tired of the whole Sam and Andi "will they ever get together?" storyline, but whatever. The real gem of the show is Sam's friendship with the impossibly nice Ben and the impossibly outrageous Sock: they are laugh out loud funny. I promise you, you will laugh out loud for real, especially as they struggle with various "vessels." In the season finale, when Sam had to ride on Sock's shoulders because his feet weren't allowed to touch the ground and Sock was running down the road as fast as he could (not very fast), I thought, "This show had better be back next season, and it had better be out on DVD." And I didn't even have to make a deal with you-know-who.
