This review is from: Reaper: Season 1 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Am I the only person who thought this was a bit average? The concept is fine and it's not terrible, but there's just something rather twee and grating about the execution. The characters are stock: there's the wacky one, the sensible one, the one always getting into trouble etc.
I couldn't quite put my finger on it until my other half pointed out that it was like watching an episode of 'saved by the bell'. I think that pretty much sums it up. You can almost hear the bits where the laugh track would've gone had it been a few years older, this is a product of the marketing department designed to appeal to teenagers as 'edgy' comedy.
To be fair it is watchable but just a bit too hollow and slick for my liking. Sorry.
