    Not a good ending if this is the series finale. This would be OK if there is another season. There are more unanswered questions now than when we started.



    Why does Heaven want Sam to be the Son of the Devil and be damned to Hell? Now not only Sam is damned but Andi is as well and Steve was the one responsible for this. What was with the celestial show at the end? The bit with the house full of Frogs was a little strange. The bit with Sock drinking the drink with the toad in it was pretty funny and the fact that the Priest then exorcised him is hilarious. It probably did more good with Sock than Nina! It was chivalrous of him to run to Ben and Nina's aid though.



    It is nice that Andi is happy with Sam and it might be that now she is damned she can accept Sam for what he is and not worry about it. That was some sacrifice for her to do for Sam. She really believes in him. It was nice to see that at the end.



    I give this an eight as it may be the end of the show for good. This was not a good finale. Obviously there is a lot more story to tell. Here's hoping that Reaper lives another day in syndication.moreless

    Reaper is an American tv show. It is on every Thursday at 9:00 on E4 and I think it's brill. I love it! My favourite is Sock, because he is very funny. The point of the show is that Sam - the main

    character - had his soul sold to the devil so when he

    dies he will go to hell. Every episode a Demon escapes from hell and causes havoc. It is up to Sam, Ben and awesome Sock to save the world and keep us laughing at the same time! It also includes a dash of romance between Sam and Andi. In conclusion I would recomend to a lot of people to watch this if you want good laugh!!! :Dmoreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Sam tells the gang that Steve broke his hand (his right hand) in six places. However, when he and Andi are throwing rocks at Steve in the Work Bench parking lot, Sam is throwing the rocks with his right hand.

    • Sam doesn't remember to challenge the Devil at the one contest that is impossible for the Devil to win: ice cream eating (as seen in "Rebellion").

    • Sam digs out his clarinet from the third grade and immediately starts playing it. The clarinet's reed would be entirely dried out and unplayable.

    • Vessel: a machete

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Mary Pat: That is so great! I'm Mary Pat. I just started today. Group hug!
      Sock: No.

    • Devil: They called him Jimbo. Jimbo the dancing monkey. Any time I felt a bit blue, I'd come and watch Jimbo dance. He was even taught to pick pockets. So multi-talented.

    • Sam: I hate you.
      Devil: I know. Dance, monkey, dance!

    • Sam: Maybe she really was protected by a fairy.
      Steve: Now, Sam. A fairy?
      Sam: Steve?
      Steve: Do I look like a fairy to you? Whoop, don't answer that.

    • Sam: Ummm, what contest should I do?
      Steve: That depends on you, Sam. I mean it's, it's, whatever you're good at.
      Sam: Yeah, what I'm... good at.
      Steve: Sam? Sam? Come on, Sam. Everybody's good at something. You are... in shape. Sports?
      Sam: No, terrible.
      Steve: Okay, math.
      Sam: Even worse.
      Steve: Moving on to the arts. Pictionary.
      Sam: Never played it. Sounds too much like "dictionary."

    • Sock: The point is, Benjamin, I invented it.
      Ben: No, no you didn't.
      Sock: Yes I did.
      Ben: Oh my God. Dudes have been doing sex moves for like a thousand years.
      Sock: So?
      Ben: There is literally nothing that hasn't been done.
      Sock: Except this. The Shark Attack, it's mine!
      Sam: Whoa, whoa. What's the next move?
      Ben: Sock thinks he invented the Shark Attack.
      Sock: The Shark Attack, yeah. All right, basically, it's like in Jaws when all you see is the fin. So what happens, this lady lies on the bed, naked, preferably. Dude does a crab walk around the foot of the bed so all she can see is his shark fin. You dig?
      Sam: Yeah. Have you done the shark thing?
      Sock: Every time I've had sex.
      Ben: Lies. I can tell you that Egyptian pharaohs used to do it like twice a week, okay? and they probably only called it Dinosaur Attack or something.
      Sock: Is that what they called it?
      Ben: It's been done.
      Sock: Oh, The Mastodong? Is that what they called it? You and your crazy ideas. You can't even back that up.

    • Devil: You know what they say about the word "assume." It makes an ass out of you and, on occasion, me.

    • Andi: Gladys, I need a favor.
      Gladys: I'm not making out with you. All right, I'll make out with you.

    • Sock: Oh, her magic is strong! But my Caddy is stronger!

    • Andi: So... let's just take a survey who had the worst week. I lost my soul to the Devil. Top that.
      Sam: An angel broke my hand in six places, which evidently means Heaven hates me, and the Devil still owns me.
      Sock: Okay, let's recap the Sock. I got frog-roofied. My mouth tastes like sand. My mind is melting. I tasted music, and it tasted like garbage.
      Ben: I had a pretty good week. What? Sock saved my girlfriend from going back to Hell.
      Sock: Yeah.
      Ben: Thank you.
      Sock: I really hate your grandmother.
      Ben: I know.

    • Andi: The Devil owns both of our souls.
      Steve: Heaven works in mysterious ways, Andi. You've got to believe.
      Andi: Believe what?
      Steve: That you are not alone.
