Reaper - "To Sprong, With Love": Robot Suit Up

It's late and I need desperately to go to bed (and read more from my Preacher graphic novel) so I'm merely posting notes tonight, which should be recognizeable.

Good and bad news for Reaper fans: The Tyler Labine-starring Sons of Tucson has been picked up by FOX for next season. Just another nail in the Reaper coffin.

Does this episode seem remotely at all like the third to last for a series? A LOT has to happen next week, right?

I never saw Mr. Woodcock, but I feel like I should do some Wikipedia time on it to compare it to the Mr. Sprong storyline.

"I am Sock no longer, I am Wrenchy Bench... forever."

"Xavier comes around sniffing for Nina again, he's gonna have to go through these guys. Lilo & Stitch."

"Ooh, that was a terrible place for a ventilation hole."

Hearing The Roots' "Game Theory" now makes me think of Jimmy Fallon running up to high-five the audience. But the robot suit comes in a close second.

Playlist: Reaper - Episode 2.11
1. "Fool Yourself" - Adonis Tsilimparis
2. "Game Theory" - The Roots
3. "She's Expensive" - The Virgins

Previously: Dark Lord of Asses ("No Reaper Left Behind" - Episode 2.09)

Drake, help us spread the word! Possible news from The Hollywood Reporter that ABC Studios might be in negotiations with local CW affiliates to syndicate a NEW SEASON of Reaper for Sunday nights! Write to your CW affiliate and tell them there's a fanbase in your area and it would be a ratings boost for them on Sunday nights! Look up your CW affiliate here: Check for more ideas.

International viewers, you should write to your networks and affiliates too!

I tweeted about the news earlier, and will undoubtedly make it part of next week's post (if it's still out there). It's a longshot, but where there's hope there's...

Of course, it's worth noting that even if they do go on via Sunday syndication, there probably won't be a Sock (Tyler Labine) any more, and the creators/showrunners of the series (Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters) will no longer be involved as well. The budget will be cut significantly as well, which means less Demon CGI and no more music.

I know I'd still watch, but it would be like walking your dog three-legged dog -- you still love him and he gets along just fine, but just seeing him walk makes you remember what's missing.
