What kind of chance do you ...
What kind of chance do you think the CW's Reaper
has to survive? I really loved the pilot. It was clever and witty, and I found myself laughing out loud more than a few times. And I adore Ray Wise
. Kudos to the casting director on that one. Last time I saw him, he was an expensive attorney helping Brenda out on The Closer
. He was wickedly charming in that role, too. I'm just thinking about my beloved Veronica Mars
, which was also clever and witty, with awesome casting, but sadly could not grab enough viewers. I hope the same doesn't happen to Reaper
As I suggested in the earlier answer to the Gossip Girl
question, I'm reasonably confident the CW will give Reaper
and the other promising newbies a fair chance to catch on. The network rarely gets reviews as positive as those for Reaper
. And while I felt the second episode was a lot more sluggish, there was still enough fun in the premise and in the characters (especially Tyler Labine
's Sock and Ray Wise's devil, wondering when Ellen
was on — loved that!) to keep me coming back, at least for now. It's no Buffy
, and for that matter no Chuck
(at least not yet), but I'm on board.
