Reaper Season 2 Ep 8 Review

The Home Stretch

Morgan and Sam hang out with their Dad, who pits them against each other. Sam and Morgan are both too dumb to realise that it is a rigged game. So when Sam wins, Morgan is furious. Now Sam's won the right to serve at Dad's side as they create hell on Earth. Sounds good right? Well it's not, for as well as the Sam/Morgan plot we get bucketloads of boredom. The idiotic Alan plot resurfaces and Andi acts bipolar as she holds Alan at bay with a garden fork, now if Sam did that she'd run off screaming about him being evil. But if she does it, that's okay then. Ben's evil detecting grandmother shows up and as a result he and Nina have issues. Why are we supposed to care about Morgan being smug or Sock's moronic subplot or the fact that whoever plays Nina cannot act? Just when you though TPTB couldn't dumb this show down any more, they go the extra distance. Forget Sam escaping daddy, I'm more concerned about the fact that Ray Wise didn't get cast as Lucifer on season 5 of 'Supernatural'.

Questions remain: why don't Sam and Morgan use their antichrist powers on each other? Why haven't Ben and Sock ended up in hell yet? This was just awful.

Best Lines:
"Your life will be garbage."
"Life already is garbage."
"Well then we'll just have to find a way to make it worse
