Critics Consensus

Lead by the devilishly snappy Ray Wise, the chemistry of Reaper's cast turns its grim premise into a confident, frolicking fun time.

Reaper should be a keeper.

For now I'll just savor what I saw, and politely beg you to watch.

I see a lot of rich potential in Reaper -- and that's frequently not the case with network pilots.

It's as confident and plainly fun a TV pilot as you'll find.

I'll admit, that was a revelation I didn't see coming.

Oct 5, 2018 | Full Review…

If I sound too enthusiastic about a series that ends up, in the pilot, being a bit too obsessed with special effects, I apologize. The Devil made me do it. Or at least Ray Wise did.

Overall, Reaper had a great run for its inaugural season. While it did suffer from a few too many formulaic mid-season outings, the premise is sound and the characters are memorable.

Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: 8.3/10 | Full Review…

Reaper's droll take on the Devil and Sam's awkward efforts to track down the wayward souls is quite funny, and Sam's best buddy Bert (Tyler Labine) adds some Jack Black-like madcap energy to the series.

Oct 5, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The series is essentially light-hearted: Sam is a sweet-natured superhero with a dust-buster. He may be working for the source of all evil, but one can't help but cheer him on.

Oct 5, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It's possible the procedural element of Reaper -- track down one of hell's escapees every week -- will grow tiresome, but if future episodes are as funny and lithe as tonight's premiere, this show will be one hell of a good time.

Oct 5, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a weird concept, but if you've got an open mind, you'll quickly find that it's a pretty damned cool one, blending humor, action, and kick-ass special effects into one of the best shows on TV today.

Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

When you look at current television, you'll find plenty of comedies and super-hero shows. Reaper blends the two genres, giving viewers a series that centers on a character that most of the people who will love this show can relate to.
