Reaper -- Season Premiere -- "Episode IV: A New Hope" -- 3/3/09

Photobucket

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


The second season begins with Sam, Sock and Ben returning from vacation only to discover that they have all been fired from the Work Bench and evicted from their apartment. Later, Sock learns that he has a gorgeous stepsister, and the Devil orders Sam to capture an escapee from hell who broke a deal with him.

My wife thought this returned last night and was disappointed when I told her that she had to wait one more day.

Who's the second chick in the promo shot above? Is that the girl Sam was dating towards the end of last season (aka devil girl?)

I'm assuming it is Sock's ex - the lawyer.

or did they get back together at the end of last season?

I'm looking forward to it - Season 1 got damn good once they focused on an overall arc and not just freak of the week episodes. Hopefully this gets a fair shake from the CW and hopefully the quality stays up (early reviews suggest it's back to freak of the week, but I hope that shit is just for the premiere and the main story resumes swiftly)...

Just ordered Season 1 from Amazon...so I'll catch-up with the new episodes in a week or two. The show got shuffled around so much last year it was not possible to record it.

It was in HD on my local affiliate.

Okay episode... it was a demon-of-the-week but a good way to relaunch into things. Looks like Soc's ex has been toasted for this new Asian "step sister" character. Not sure how much I'm going to like the 3 guys living with her in Soc's mom's house. She can't be on her honeymoon forever.

Here's hoping that they can launch a new seasonal arc that binds the show as well as the stuff in the 2nd half of S1. Every week having "freak of the week" is just weak. This show has proven it can do much better than that.

Re: Reaper -- Season Premiere -- "Episode IV: A New Hope" -- 3/3/09

I'm wondering when Sam will find out his dad is not really dead.

To be honest, I didn't feel a connection with the episode last night. Something felt a little off. I'm hoping that following episodes improve. Also, the cattle prod water thing I had picked up on from the beginning.

Yeah they needed a better recap. I couldn't remember anything that had happened. =/

Wasn't the big twist at the end of last season when Sam's mom digs his dad out of the grave? And now there's no mention of it and no sign of his parents. That was weird. Other than that, it was nice to see the show back.

I am assuming that he left town right after he thought his dad was dead and buried after his rescue. I am also assuming that his parents aren't back at the house because you would think he would at least visit his mother. Perhaps they couldn't afford the parents with the new budget though, and they may have to hold off on dealing with that.

How does this compare to last season?

http://www.zap2it.com/tv/ratings/zap...,3530830.story

"American Idol" earned a 12.9/20 at 8 p.m. An "NCIS" rerun earned a healthy 8.7/13 for CBS. "The Biggest Loser: Couples," 5.1/8, was third for NBC, beating "Homeland Security USA" on ABC. The season premiere of "Reaper" pulled down a 1.5/2 for The CW.

http://pifeedback.com/eve/forums/a/t...51/m/391103391

In season-premiere news, sophomore CW drama Reaper got crushed opposite American Idol, with a last-place 2.36 million viewers and a 0.9/ 2 among adults 18-49 from 8-9 p.m. And that’s a real shame because there seems to be a small cult following for this series. Airing out of Reaper was a repeat of already renewed 90210 at a mere 1.15 million viewers and a 0.5/ 1 in the demo at 9 p.m.

If I recall, this is pretty much on par to what it was averaging last season. Around 2-2.5M viewers.

Thought it was funny at the end that Sam being in a good mood had the opposite effect on the devil. And Sok's sister is sooo hot.

Exactly what I was thinking as I double-checked my Tivo on Tuesday afternoon.

Watched it last night - very happy to have it back.

Missy Peregrym looks like she has been working out. Is it me or did her chest get bigger?

Nice to have this back - not the best show on the air, but always entertaining.
