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

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