The CW network has given a 13-episode midseason renewal to its comedic hourlong series Reaper.
I did not see that coming. I thought Reaper was pretty much dead, having lost a great deal of its initial audience. It's not a bad show, but it's not a great one either. Maybe they can use this reprieve from cancellation to retool the show to better reach its potential.
Some suggestions? More Ray Wise as the Devil. Put a muzzle on Sock once in a while. Get rid of that third-wheel friend whose name I can't even remember right now. Lose the chick from Stick It -- she sucks and has no chemistry with the lead. Bring Sam's parents into the picture more often. After all, they're the ones who sold Sam's soul to the Devil in the first place. They should be far more involved in the storylines than they currently are. In fact, I don't think we've seen either of Sam's parents for weeks now.
Basically, though I hate to put it this way, they need to Buffy it up.
