    They take the best, funniest actor out of the cancelled "Reaper" and give him a series of his own. I say, Yay! Then they do what the idiots at the networks always do, they forget why they liked him (Hint: he was the funny one!), and they give him all the straight lines. Hey, idiots! He's the comedic talent not the straight man! 'Kay? Let him beat on the kids and do awful stuff They take the best, funniest actor out of the cancelled "Reaper" and give him a series of his own.

  1. Sons doesn’t shine yet, but it could if the writers embrace their loony wild childs. Even at its worst, Sons is better than a third Seth MacFarlane cartoon
  2. If you like the laid-back-dude vibe given off by "Reaper's" Tyler Labine, you'll enjoy this nicely ratty sitcom.
  3. This might make a better premise for a movie than a series, but Fox is giving it a shot amid its Sunday animated comedies. It could pay off thanks to above-average writing, a winning performance by Tyler Labine and an understanding by the producers that this series must walk a tightrope to avoid becoming too sweet or cynical.
