    Anyone needs to see this episode go to Sidereel, they have it. Welcome back Reaper. The episode was great even though the water thing was predictable, this is a fun show not a mystery one. I do hope they resolve last season cliffhanger, it was addressed to in this first episode.

    I found it a bit flat. And come on the solution with the water was the first thing a I thought about when it was clear he had to get rid of a bunch of guys with his cattle prod.

    I thought it was great episode, very funny. Its more of a comedy show to me. I laughed out loud couple of times in the episode. Sam jumping in the truck trying to steal it with somebody in the passenger seat and Sock yelling to drive. Also Sam jumping through the top window to just come back through the bottom. Socks hot sister. The college cramming. Its just such a fun show.....

    I think some people analyze it too much.

    Was anybody surprised by Sock suddenly having a sister? (Though the Star Wars reference in the title should've given it away.)

    I dont understand why people complain about Sock wanting to sleep with his half-sister.

    Aside from his and her parents getting married a couple of months ago, these two are strangers to each others.

    No blood relation what so ever, no family ties aside from a legal point of view.

    Bunch of ignorants.

    I know that; I even said it fit into the Star Wars reference in the title. ("The Force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And...my sister has it.") What I don't know is why TPTB keep bringing it up.

    u can't cancel reaper .. look at Supernatural. they had their problems too but now it has a lot of fans and brings a lot of profit. if u would give another chance to the show and invest some money in the visual effects i think it has a chance. its a SF age

    Stepsister, not half-sister. Sleeping with your half-sister would be incestuous, because you have one parent in common.

    I have nothing against Sock wanting to hook up with his stepsister. I think Sock's character can never overdo anything; however, in my opinion, the writers oversexualized their relationship. Yes, it gave way to a lot of laughs. But it was done in poor taste, since almost every encounter was overtly sexual (or had a sexual undertone). It would've been really cute if they had more romantic, non-sexual scenes (like Ben and Nina).

    You will find many of the truths we cling to depend on our point of view. (Come on, with the title "A New Hope", you knew that was coming.) Incest is culturally defined, and in many cultures, sleeping with your stepsister is incest. But at the same time, many cultures also favor certain marriages within the family, typically one or more cousins. More on this later.

    With Tyler Labine going to Fox to headline another show, I think that pretty much puts the nail in the coffin for Reaper. Thought last season was much better then this one but either way, it was a good show that'll be missed.
