    A toaster?! The vessels keep getting wierder.

    Nice to see that the Devil seems to think that Sam should be with the girl. :up:

    I wonder when Sam will learn not to second-guess the vessels..?

    Kind of decent special effects in this one. I like this show. I agree with the criticism that it could probably use some more substance, and that they still haven't quite got the pacing down, but I like that they're not afraid to be both funny and dark. This was probably the darkest of the three eps, and it's pretty clear that the genial devil we've mostly seen so far is getting a little tired of Sam's excuses (in both his devil work and his life).

    This was my least favorite of the first three shows - much less laugh-out-loud moments. However, I still found it to be enjoyable.

    I was glad to see the one friend not get hurt this time (can't remember his name)! And the look the devil had at the end had me cracking up.

    Was that Mariska Hargitay in the photo with the devil?

    I'm starting to think this show is going to lose me in a week or two. I find myself being less and less entertained with each new episode, not because they're any less interesting, but because the "kids hilariously stumble and bumble their way while bagging the denizen-of-hell-of-the-week" routine is starting to wear thin. And the "hot girl and good guy don't get together ... just because" routine is starting to get tiresome too.

    Kind of reminds me of Greatest American Hero - at some point, it just wasn't funny any more that the guy kept flying into trees and buildings and stuff.

    And dare I say it ... the same "stumble bumble saves the day" formula was a miserable failure with Jar Jar Binks too.

    It would be a shame if the show doesn't manage to turn the corner and let the characters settle into some competence and confidence, because there are some really good elements in this show.

    I feel like they are rapidly gaining both competence and confidence. They made reasonable assumptions this show (even if they were wrong), and didn't hesitate to go after the demon directly. Sam is quick on his feet in a clutch as well, using the hanger to short out the toaster vessel.

    I don't know if I would trust a relationship condoned by the devil. He probably has some ulterior motive (other than a "reward") for Sam to get the girl.

    :eek: I have to admit that, as much as I like this show, I couldn't watch this episode. I have a "thing" about bugs. After the opening sequence, with the huge roach on the toothbrush, I couldn't do it. I stopped watching and deleted the recording. I'll pick it up again next week.

    You should have stuck with it. Other than seeing swarming bee's flying around there really wasn't much more of the bugs in it.

    Unfortunatly, I was eating when I turned this on. The giant roaches in the beginning were a little hard to watch while eating. :( I had to turn away, and feared I may vomit. :(

    Overall, I like this show a lot more than I thought I would. So far this is my "surprise" of the season.

    I found that interesting. Marisa Hargitay is the daughter of Jayne Maynesfield. If I remember correctly, there was a rumor during Jayne Maynesfield's day that she was involved with Anton LeVay and the church of satan.

    I agree with your points but will continue to watch even after a few more weeks. All of the necessary parts for a good show are here, but it's getting bogged down by the unnecessary cliches.

    It's going to be pretty tiring if he never tells her his secret, for example.

    I'm bothered by how anti-climactic the capturing of the soul is. I hope they make it a little bit more exciting in the future and have fewer "ironic twists" with the vessel.

    I'm also somewhat put off by the fact that he does not seem to be interested in exploring his "powers" at all. He seemed annoyed by telekinesis and the like.

    Yeah right. If I had telekinesis I'd be spending at least 23.8 hours a day playing with it.

    BTW, if anyone is interested, that song they played at the very end of the episode is "On a Neck, On a Spit" by Grizzly Bear on their CD Yellow House. I recognized it but couldn't remember the name of the song or the band.

    +1. I like this show, but as I was watching, I kept wondering what they will do to keep this show interesting. The formula is cool, but it can get stale quick. I'll give it another ep or two, and really hope they find a way to keep it fresh.

    This episode was not funny. All the delaying and stretching to fill an hour just made this episode miserably uncomfortable.

    It seems to me that 45 minutes would be the best length for this show. 30 is just too short to develop a "bad soul" and fit in some laughs and whatnot, and 60 is just too long for the lightheartedness to keep your interest.
