Reaper: "The Leak"

Sam pursues a lothario soul who has swayed Gladys to his side to keep from being sent back to hell. Meanwhile Tony looks for a loophole to save Sam's soul, but by the end of the episode Tony and friends suspect Sam is The Devil's son. This might explain why Sam's father was ripping pages out of his contract and burning them earlier this season. I suspect the underlings are wrong again, but we'll see next week.

Some of my enthusiasm about the 13-episode renewal has cooled. Nikki Finke criticizes CW exec Dawn Ostroff, writing among other things, "A sexed-up Reaper with relationship problems makes no sense for midseason."

The show could be cancelled before it airs in midseason, and if not, what are its chances for a third season? There could also be cast or concept changes ala Lois & Clark's second season emphasis on super-feats over a quirky relationship. Too much worry about the future, perhaps. Come to think of it, I should be grateful something I enjoy airs at all, for however long. You can't take the sky from me.

i'm still mourning the loss of Firefly :(

and to add insult to injury, last year some kids broke into our house, stole my firefly discs, Serenity, and the soundtrack

too heartbroken to replace them
