(no subject)

By pure chance, I happened to spot that Kevin Smith's latest creation - Reaper - was receiving it's first airing on telly last night. Cue much frantic scrabbling to set up the PVR to record the whole series.

For those who have no idea what I'm on about, it's about a guy who discovers on his 21st birthday that his parents had sold his soul to the Devil. The show is then about the Devil having him round up escaped souls just like in Ghostrider, but without the cool flaming skull look. But then it is a comedy and the hero is lazy, inept and utterly unsuited to the task.

So far it looks promising. I'm certainly looking forward to the next episode.
