Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says there is still hope for the devil. At least, there is for the CW series "Reaper" which is likely to be dropped but may get another season if enough viewers ask for one.
Sokolsky expresses hope that this could happen because "Reaper", though hardly a classic TV venture, could rate as a "good bad show."
Meanwhile, he calls attention to other ventures with the devil. There was even an earlier similar series to "Reaper" titled "Brimstone."
Sokolsky also recalls such other shows as "God, the Devil and Bob," an animated outing with Jim Garner providing the voice of God. And there is a wide range of dramas from "The Devil and Daniel Webster" to the "Omen" movies.
That was in addition to "Damn Yankees," the classic musical comedy story of a baseball fan who sells his soul to the devil for a championship season. On the other hand, Sokolsky says that show might not count because many "baseball widows" consider it a documentary.
