I'm still watching this, and this show is getting better and better. The relationship between Sam and the Devil has developed intriguingly, there are signs of a deeper mythology, and there are a ton of hilariously quotable lines.

From the last ep: "I'm sorry, Sam. I didn't realize you were a homosexual. That sound you hear? That's every guy in the world laughing at you."

Good stuff. Easily my favorite of this mostly tepid fall season.

I completely agree. This is a fun show.

Also, the fact that they managed to bring on the brilliantly hysterical Patton Oswalt for a guest spot cemented their coolness. Between this and SUPERNATURAL, the CW has my favorite genre offerings currently on the air.

Once again, I'm in agreement. I consistently love the Devil's attitude toward Sam. He likes him but will gladly send him to hell if he bites back. Wise is wonderful as Satan.

This week's episode was the best so far. At various points, I literally howled with laughter.

Highlights:

- Mitch Pilleggi telling Sock that he has twenty seconds to leave the room before getting beaten to death with a phonebook.

- Satan offering Sam a baseball bat and inviting him to "go all Barry Bonds on my ass."

- Sam and Greg engaging in the girliest slapfight ever.

- Sock and Ben stalking Gladys, the DMV demon, which results in Sock having the most horrifying dream EVER.

- Satan using Sam in order to collect on old debts.

And the best part...Sam now has a "Get Out of Hell Free" card. How much you wanna bet that comes into play later on this season?

REAPER has become one of the highlights of my week.

The first three times I saw it during the commercial I laughed a lot, but for some reason all in the moment of the episode I was in hysterics. The deadpan of Pilleggi was genius.

Don't forget the line:

"I appreciate the courtesy of not going for my crotch."

So stupid but still... so damn funny! You figure they'd have had a more dramatic fight, but damn I was in sheer disbelief.

That dream was hilarious. "You have a pretty mouth."

That ending was great.

It's a shame this season only has so many episodes left, because I'd love to see what Satan has planned with that card.

I agree, it's a great hour. I also agree with many that it should be with Supernatural as a two hour demon line up.

I really love the character of Gladys. She's just a 9 to 5 demon who spends her spare time collecting Hummel angels and growing flowers in a greenhouse -- and she's also the "bitchy old lady down the street" that all the neighborhood kids torment. Funny shit.

As for teaming it up with SUPERNATURAL, yep -- they're a natural fit. I'd also like to see a crossover episode written by Ben Edlund. The thought of the Winchester boys finally facing off against Lucifer himself in the form of Ray Wise is absolutely hysterical.

I fell in love with Reaper immediately. I love the characters, I love the Devil (who was on Twin Peaks, giving him extra cool points) and I love the losers-become-bad-ass thing. It's like Clerks. With escaped souls from hell.

Did anyone see the finale?

It's probably one of my favorite episodes so far.

I LOVED that final scene, and the prank phone call from the devil had me in hysterics.

So you like Supernatural again now?


Anyways, when are new episodes of Reaper coming out?
