Reaper Wrap-Up

Posted: 09/21/2011 in Misc.


So, I finished my viewing of the entire run of the television show Reaper. I have to say that my memory was accurate and that Reaper was a really great show, killed in the prime of its life. Here are some of my final thoughts and notes on the series:

* Reaper had some really good music. In the first three episodes alone, we get tracks from The Bravery, Silversun Pickups, and Queens of the Stone Age.

*A zombie character first appears in Season 2 episode 4.

* Season 2 episode 6 stars Golden Zombey award winner: Stephen McHattie.

* The son of the Devil, Morgan, is played by Armie Hammer. Hammer played the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network. If you want someone to play a handsome douchebag, Hammer’s your man. (He also must have one of the worst names in the Screen Actors’ Guild. There’s no way you can hear his name and not think of baking soda.)

* The series really begins to pick around episode 6, which stars Patton Oswalt. Coincidence? I think not.

* Lucy Davis stars in a few episodes as part of a side story arc revolving around Ben and a green card marriage. Davis starred in Shaun of the Dead and is probably best known as the female lead (the “Pam” if you will) in the original, British, The Office.

    I believe Armie Hammer is the heir to the baking soda empire. it’s a family/business name.
