"Unseen" Season 1, Episode 12

Oh, how I love a good (mild) cliffhanger. Did anyone else expect the Guys' new neighbors Steve ( Michael Ian Black) and Tony ( Ken Marino) to be demons? I mean, I think we've all come to accept that anything on this show that appears to be great at first (dads, vacuums, girlfriends) rarely is. But demons? Adoptive parent demons? Badass, lovey chefs-who-discuss-crown-moulding demons? Oh, Well. Even if they are 28,000% evil, I still want their lobster macaroni and cheese recipe. Yum. I quite enjoyed seeing everyone's storylines flesh out in this episode. And though last week's demon was pretty gnarly, I found Herbert to be one of the scarier escaped souls I've personally seen - you can't see him coming at you! Though in a way, I've come to expect that sort of thing when I walk on New York City streets. At least in my case it's usually just the crazies and not the returned-dead to keep wary of. Sam started the episode out in confident form, backbone intact, hallelujah. Minus his new cockiness, he was acting so much more the hero tonight. I only fear he might pay for all his sassing of the Devil later, as we've seen what bad Devil karma will get you. Sam got his soul-catching assignment with minimal clues from the big guy (his own choice), and the guys set out to catch the murderous forest hermit who'd been killing innocent joggers near his old haunts in the woods. I fully expect to see that very description somewhere on a dating site in the next few days. As a vessel, the guys received a Magic Bullet portable food processor. It slices, it dices, it helps transport demons back to hell. If only all home appliances were so useful. There's still the burning question of Cady's origins. Namely, is she evil? And if not, what gives? Reasons Cady is Crazy Demon-Spawn -she made a fish die in her presence -she made a flower wilt -she shattered glass -she snores beast-growls -she's a jealous beeyotch -she moved a bowling ball with her mind Reasons Why Cady is a Normal, if Icky, Girl -'Cause the Devil said so -'Cause The Devil gave Sam "evil- viewing glasses" and Cady looked normal through them. Really, are you going to believe the guy with the horns or your own gut on this one? I suppose other theories might include that her mom's a demon herself or her real dad is a demon, but I don't think Jerry/Mr. Belvedere/Satan really gave us a good enough reason to discount him. Something's fishy, and it's not Steve and Tony's crab salad. Speaking of, the most exciting part of this episode for me was the Guys' new apartment. (Time out: Three bedrooms for $1200/month, furnished, and including a parking space? Unreal, former meth lab or not.) It's the ultimate bachelor pad, and the guys even have laundry service demons awesome, handy neighbors. Neighbors who... could be evil. Sounds like my own, actually. This story was much less about catching the demon and more about the interaction between the characters and their resulting lives because of the demon-hunting. This is what you loyal watchers have been commenting about and hoping for all along, so what did you think? Do you prefer the direction things are now going? For those who do, you'll be glad to know that Valerie Rae Miller (who plays my hero Josie) writes in her TVGuide.com blog that we can expect a lot more of that to come. As I previously mentioned, we're also seeing this refreshing grab-the-assignment-by-the-horns (pun intended) attitude that Sam's evoking. And as Ray Wise told me earlier this week, (shameless Reaper promotion!) while the Devil may not be thrilled with Sam's ego, he sure hopes it helps make him a better guy. I still don't know how much I fully buy the Devil's pride in his charge, even though it makes you "Aww" whenever he treats Sam all fatherly. All in all, I loved Black's and Marino's characters, I loved the guys' independence, I loved Andi doing the right thing by being honest with Sam about Cady being a freak, and I just love where this is all going. Only six more episodes left, guys. Let's see what we can do to make sure this show sticks around. Quotes 'n Quotes 'n Quotes Sock: "I need a bat cave. I deserve a bat cave." Sock: "Oh dude! Magic Bullet!" Sam: "What?" Ben: "What is it, a vibrator?" Sam to the Devil: "I don't need you." The Devil: "I told you before - you're much more than an an employee. I care about you."
