Reaper Rundown: Episode 4, "Magic"

Reaper Rundown: Episode 4, "Magic"

On this week's Reaper, I got a huge kick out of Ben's deep affection for the vessel, a bird he names Winston. I'm glad that guy's getting more screen time — he's funny and those dimples just get me. This week the Devil got more great lines than usual, too, and that might be my favorite thing about the show. Could have done without the whole Sam-needing-the-contract thing, which just seems like a time-waster, but overall I think it was a great episode. To check out some of the parts I thought were best about the show,

  • They must have such a blast working on this show! That mechanical bull fashioned out of paint shakers looks like so much fun.
  • "Beta males are in right now, okay? Chicks dig it." — Sock, on why it's okay for Sam to let Ted walk all over him.
  • Ah, from the Devil's mouth to God's ears: "Life's too short to drink domestic."
  • "I'm not Google, Sam!" — Devil, in response to Sam's question about where the escaped soul is. I am so using that line in real life.
  • "Didn't you have plans? Plans to lock lips with somebody? Flaming lips?" — Devil
  • Sam's online search for the soul: "Bellifiore. Soul."
  • Sock: "Winston's not a bird's name, Ben."
    Ben: "Okay, well you tell me what a bird's name is."
    Sock: "I don't know. How about Flappy? Or Paul."
  • Ben sneaks Winston into the bar under his coat!
  • "You know, Sam, sarcasm is the lowest form of social discourse." — Devil
  • Gladys: "Place the vessel on the mat."
    Sock: "Ooh, that's going to be kind of difficult with all that sexual tension pushing back."
  • Ben: "Winston, you are one freaky-ass bird who scared the crap out of me and now I can't be comfortable around birds ever again. I hope you know that."
  • Devil: "What is it about you, Sammy? Huh? I just can't say no!"

My argument to that is every show follows a formula...depends on your ability to understand and enjoy, or nitpick it apart. Along the way there is character development, but there is always a formula.

Someone recently argued that this show is getting stale fast because they use the same formula for every episode, and I found I couldn't argue against him, even though I'm still really enjoying the show. Last night's episode gave me an argument- I finally felt like they were breaking the mold. I love this show for the witty oneliners (the Best Buy line cracked me up last night!). I'll definitely stick with it as long as it's around.

This show really does have the best lines (almost on par with Ugly Betty). Some of my favorite lines and moments: -"How Much is the Plasma tv" "A Million Dollars, you should check Best Buy" -Socks "magic" trick with the chocolate bar -The Criss Angel-like magician -Sock calling Ted...Kaczynski As always, I'm looking forward to next Tuesday!!!

when the devil said the line about sarcasm, our viewing party cracked up. we have a friend who likes to remind us that "Sarcasm is Scarcasm" overall, I love Sock. the contract thing was unnecesary, but not bad enough to bog the show down.

the lines are the best part of the show...i wouldn't even care if they never actually caught souls, because it's so funny anyways! and buzz, i totally can you NOT use the phrase "i'm not google" in real life??

awwww...i missed last night's episode! :( it sounds like it was really good too. does the CW repeat it? on the plus side, the reason i missed it is b/c i saw an advanced screening of "Rendition" with Reese Witherspoon and Jakey-G. VERY GOOD MOVIE!!! Very intense too so if you're looking for a nice escapist comedy, this ain't it!
