Fans of Sock on Reaper will undoubtedly be flocking to this show in droves, just to see more of their beloved Tyler Labine, but the show thankfully seems like it will appeal to people outside the Reaper viewer base. Labine plays Ron Snuffkin, a lazy sporting goods salesman who's living out of his car since he split up with his girlfriend and owes money around town. Almost immediately at the start of the episode, Snuffkin is recruited by three kids who need a fake dad to enroll them in school, since their dad is in prison for defrauding investors. He uses his ability to spin a good yarn to get them in with little effort, and needless to say, it turns into a regular gig, which should make for plenty of funny plots.
Facing the sad news that virtually every scripted show in L.A. has shut down production due to the WGA strike, you can't help wondering what depths the studios will sink to in order to keep ramming new episodes into the pipeline. You have to wonder; we actually know.
