  • The continuing adventures of the Devils bounty hunter Sam and his intrepid cohorts Sock and Ben. Andi is mad at Sam, Ted has fired all three, they have been evicted, and the Devil has given them an impossible task. So everything will work out alright?

    This was a pretty even episode that sort of tied last season and this season together into a nice package. Well written with some nice twists we'll be looking forward too.

    Sam, Sock, and Ben return from their road trip hastened by last seasons ending to find that they have been evicted from their apartment, they were fired from the Bench, and Andi is not speaking to Sam. Just another day in the service of the Devil... right? To top this all off the Devil gives Sam a really impossible task to complete that will probably get him killed.

    Some nice new pieces to the puzzle of this interesting story. Sam had written a letter as only Sam can do to explain everything to Andi so she would possibly forgive him for the recent events he knows will make her angry. Can you say self-fulfilling prophecy. He even gave the letter to Sock to mail?! Sock and the boys finally crash at Sock's Moms house which is being occupied by Socks new step-sister. She of course is hot and Sock is smitten with her immediately.

    Sock and the boys blackmail Ted into getting their jobs back by pointing out some of the little ventures Ted has on the side which are violations of just about any businesses general policies.

    Finally they are tasked with bringing in twenty to forty really rough souls who just want to beat each other up and party. Better yet they are given a cattle prod which has to recharge itself each time they capture a soul. Sam finds a way to come through in the end by accident, but you have to watch the episode to see this one for yourself.

    We have a few unanswered questions we'll have to wait for next time to see. Will they find out who the escaped soul was who seems to be free of the Devil? Sam and Andi made up. Will Sam's new happiness really upset the Devil to the point where he does something drastic? Will Socks friendship with his new step-sister blossom into something more? Finally will Ben find true love with the Demon in the coming attraction for next week?

    We'll see.

    Thanks for reading...
