Reaper had its (probably) final episode last night. It was what it’s always been: uneven, low-budget, silly, barely managing to make it through an entire plot, let alone figure out what the whole series is supposed to be about — and very entertaining. Can I sum up my feelings about it in 32 rhymed words? Yes. Should I? No. Will I? Of course.

Another sleeper
Is out of luck.
It was a keeper,
But they got stuck
With budgets cheaper
Than half a buck
And plots no deeper
Than “Disco Duck.”
But I’ll take Reaper
Instead of Chuck.
