Editors Note
Note Kevin Smith directed the pilot episode of this wildly imaginative slacker comedy-cum-fantasy series. Bret Harrison returns for another go-around as Sam Oliver, the twentysomething who dropped out of college because it "made him sleepy" and seemed destined to spend the rest of his days working at a Home Depot-like warehouse store until Satan (Ray Wise) showed up and explained that, due to a series of soul-pact shenanigans, the horned one is in fact Sam's rightful owner. Now, in Season Two, Sam continues his job as a Reaper, a sort of heroic bounty hunter tasked with retrieving mischievous souls that have escaped from eternal damnation, capturing them in vessels forged in the depths of Hell to resemble ordinary objects such as vacuum cleaners and Zippo lighters. Happily assisting their overwhelmed pal in his deathly duties are Sam?s braver-than-he-looks slacker buddy, Sock (Tyler Labine), and the beautiful and ever-loyal Andi (Missy Peregrym). With smarts, energy, and vivid originality, REAPER is a supernatural comedy to behold. Included here are all 13 episodes of the series' second season.

Review Another classic slacker with a goofball friend, Sam ("The Loop's" Bret Harrison) notices his parents are acting a tad strangely on his birthday. Perhaps that's because mom and dad feel guilty, having promised their first-born to the Devil before Sam's birth to save dad's life -- explaining why they didn't push him to excel, unlike his overachieving younger brother...Now, however, Satan has come to collect, though as played by Wise (in what feels like an homage to Ray Walston in "Damn Yankees"), he's a disarmingly cheery sort who looks like a member of the Rotary Club. Sure, he has a bit of a temper, but he also revels in practical jokes and enjoys fatty foods. "I'm so glad I don't have arteries," he gloats while cutting into a chicken-fried steak...The Devil has tasked Sam with capturing and returning fugitive souls to Hell, and in the premiere, he's armed with a dust-buster-type device (OK, we bow to the power of product placement: Dirt Devil) to suck them up, "Ghostbusters" style. Of course, it's not a simple process, and tending to those duties interferes with his day job at the local home-improvement store, where he has a serious crush on a co-worker ("Heroes" casualty Missy Peregrym, ably filling a role recast after development)...Nothing here is especially novel, beginning with Sam's relationship with his idiot buddy Sock (the frenetic Tyler Labine), who's immediately game for any kind of mayhem. Their banter brings to mind some of the playful lunacy in pilot director Kevin Smith's movies, such as "Clerks," albeit toned down for primetime...Given its demographic slant, the show should have an opportunity to find a respectable audience by CW's standards, before "American Idol" begins sucking up misguided souls on Tuesday nights with its own brand of demonic power. A more immediate concern will be insuring that the writing matches the pilot's ingenuity to prevent this from becoming just another "monster of the week" showcase.

Entertainment Weekly Devilishly funny.
Shawn McKenzie, Entertain Your Brain! Harrison continues his lovable goofball antics that he perfected in FOX's "The Loop," and Wise just screams "evil" while still being darkly funny.
The New York Times Fire -- and brimstone -- and laughs.
