I caught encores of Journeyman and Reaper last night. Journeyman is the least original of all the new series I've seen this season. (I say this as a big fan of Quantum Leap and a modest fan of Tru Calling.) Unlike Quantum Leap, Journeyman is short on backstory. Hero Dan Vassar (Kevin McKidd) blacks out and starts tripping through time without warning. Very disorienting to me. This is one I'll skip.
Reaper is about a 21-year-old slacker (Brett Harrison) who learns his parents sold his soul to The Devil (Ray Wise) before he was born. The Devil puts him to work sending escaped souls back to hell. This show has a lot going for it: a vibe similar to Chuck, a perfectly-cast Ray Wise, Missy Peregrym. Its regular timeslot is Tuesdays at 9, opposite House, which could translate to less ratings pressure.
