Funny times on the tube

Kicking back after soccer practice, I scan the HD channels to see what would be fun to watch. CW had this absolutely hilarious show called the Reaper which was about a man who discovered that his parents had sold his soul to the Devil. Sam, the lead character, must hunt down escaped souls for the devil while holding down a mundane job at a Home Depot look-a-like. What makes this show click is not Sam but the supporting cast. Sock, a co-worker and best friend, is by far the best scene stealer yet. His comedy is very Jack Black and he seemed natural in his delivery. The show is a cross between Ghost Busters and Employee of the Month. That is not saying much but surprisingly Reaper pulls it off with some flair. I finally have a reason to turn on the TV on Tuesday nights. Kind of sad, but oh well.
