Please tell me I'm not the only one that has heard about this show. It's directed by none other than Kevin Smith, and it is by far my favorite new tv show. It's so friggin funny, at several points I almost peed myself.

For those of you who havn't heard of or seen it yet, just search a torrent site like *yoink* Against the rules. ~IG-64. You will not be dissapointed.

So did anyone else catch it?

EDIT: Apparently just the names of torrent sites are against the rules. You all know the big ones, so use your brainmeats on that one.

Yeah, because Ghost Rider was the first story in which someone made a contract with the Devil.

I haven't seen the show, no TV, but I've heard it's funny as hell. I plan on checking it out as soon as possible.

I watched the pilot a while back, and it was pretty good. His dopey Jack Black-esque sidekick could be toned down a touch, but I like the main actor, and the fellow who plays the devil is superb.

If memory serves Kevin Smith only directed the pilot.

Then how come they use his name in all the commercials I saw?

And sithy, download it ASAP. You won't be dissapointed.

The show sounds interesting.

Hmmm what channel is CW? Usually there are reruns of shows, and I can set my DVR to record it.

Update:

Yep, the Pilot is on tonight at 9pm on what used to be the WB channel (for my area). No idea what they call it now.

because he's a well known name and if people hear his name associated with the movie, they'll think, "Well, since Kevin Smith's involved, it must be good! I'll watch!"

I love the view askewniverse but I haven't seen Reaper yet. This thread inspired me to go watch some youtubes of it and I have to say...O M G. The trailer looks amazing :D

I watched it and wasn't that great, but it had some good moments. I rather watch Deal or No Deal. :p

I didn't catch the first episode. Though, I think it's airing again on Tuesday. I'll check it out.

Just saw the pilot, and it wasn't too funny. It had its moments though, but I agree that the sidekick was too much like Jack Black, just not as funny.

the fellow who plays the devil is superb.

That's Ray Wise, he played Leeland Palmer in Twin Peaks (the best tv-show ever made). :D

Yea, I recognized him from Robocop and a couple of CnC games. I never watched Twin Peaks, though I understand it has quite a rabid following :)

It's definitely worth getting, if you don't mind having to use your brain a little bit while watching. Most of the second season is sub-standard though. :(
