I didn’t expect much of this show and wasn’t disappointed. It’s quite a teenage stinker, and that’s probably down the fact that I’m not a teenage girl, infatuated with Twilight. This Twilight rip-off reminds me of Anne Rice. When she ran out of stuff to write about vampires, she started writing about witches. It’s funny how all of these shows/books/movies are alike. A young girl moves to a new town and finds out about her strange powers/heritage. Basically, this is what the show is about. While it was pretty bad, I had fun writing the review. I’m not sure that I’ll watch it again. It’s a bit mind-numbing, stupid, and boring. Unlike other stupid shows, this one does take itself seriously. The whole witch thing is really badly designed in this show as well.
I got fired from my job, she says. Why I ask. Well, I kind of took off for spring break to Mexico to visit my dad, but I didn’t really tell my boss when this would happen. I had written this in on the wrong form and my boss wasn’t happy. I got fired. That’s sucks, I say. I’ve been trying to get a new job, but it hasn’t been easy. I gave my CV to a bunch of places. One creepy guy was really interested. Later, he phoned me to tell me that I could work there. I didn’t have a job and I needed the cash, but I told him that I didn’t need it. He was just too creepy. I got a bad vibe off him.
Sam has a big problem. He’s on his own while dealing with a new escaped soul from hell. It’s not going to be easy. Meanwhile Ben and Sock investigate Gladys, the demon that takes delivery of the vessels at the DMV. The Devil is being very nice with Sam. Sam is getting worried.
Sam meets a new girl, but his non-existent relationship with Andy is blocking his senses. Sam decides to continue to not pursue Andy. Andy doesn’t mention Greg anymore, which is surprising. At least they are talking again.
I found Sock really annoying in this episode. His whole thing about talking with the captured soul in the vessel was really stupid. The soul is corrupt. It just spent an eternity in hell. There is no way that it is rehabilitated. Sock should just grow up. Sam tried telling him, but Sock wouldn’t listen.
Sam finally gets a copy of his contract. It’s in latin and is very thick. His dad is acting very strange. It’s almost as if he wants something. It involves the Devil as well, but Satan doesn’t want to see Sam’s dad anymore.
In this episode, Sam has to deal with his feelings for Andy. Sam is a bit of a whim and a procrastinator and he isn’t able to tell her how he feels. In fact, he takes every opportunity in rebuking her advances, which is just plain stupid. At least this character has some faults, which is redeeming.
Reaper is a new series on CW. It premiered on September 25th 2007.
In this episode, Sam doesn’t want to deal with his new job for the devil. Meanwhile people are dying because of this. He has to do it and there is no way around this. The devil sends him constant reminders about his duties. Things don’t work out at the Work Bench either. He messes up and doesn’t get to work on the same shift as Andy, his new love interest.
