Primetime Show Reviews
Review by Suzanne 11/24/07
This is a very silly show, so it's more of a comedy with doses
of scifi/fantasy. Kind of like if you crossed That 70's Show with Buffy
the Vampire Slayer, only that would probably be written better.
The premise is that this guy is owned by the devil and has to
hunt down souls who have escaped from hell. This guy is a real slacker,
spoiled by his parents, and he works at a Walmart type of store. He and his
friends are real losers. He finds out that his parents made a deal with the
devil to give him their first-born son. But then he kind of gets into
being the devil's hitman, and his friends do, too, since it's exciting and much
more interesting than their own lives.
The best part is that Ray Wise, most famous for Twin Peaks,
plays the devil. He does a fantastic job. I'm glad he found another
regular show with which to grace his presence. Bret Harrison plays Sam,
our hapless "hero". Tyler Labine is excellent as Sam's witless friend
This is a fun show, but it's not something you can really take
seriously, and it's obviously aimed at teens and college kids. If you like
slight-twisted humor, you might like it.
