The Exact Opposite of Supernatural?

I just noticed something today. Reaper seems to be the exact opposite of Supernatural. Aside from the similarities with the two shows' main character being named Sam and both dealing with fighting demons from Hell and sending them back, they're kinda the opposite of each other.


In Supernatural, Sam and Dean have a badass muscle car. In Reaper, Sam has a Toyota Prius (basically the opposite of a muscle car :P). In Reaper, the gang is working for the Devil while in Supernatural Sam and Dean are fighting the Devil. Reaper is more comedic and has over the top weapons to fight monsters while Supernatural tries to base their monsters on real-life stories and they use realistic weapons (guns, silver, etc.)


What do you guys think and which show do you like better?

i dunno if you can choose, they're both as great as each other, even with the differences, though you do make a very good point, it wouldn't surprise me if they had that as an idea for reaper, almost like some sort of opposite spoof or even better, an alternate universe show...nahh thats just me with a wondering mind haha.i really can't decide because supernatural is the get serious side of demons and the devil etc. while reaper almost kind of makes the idea of demons and the devil how a lot people think of the devil, that really cool dude who owns hell and bought us rock music etc...so i have to say im completely 50/50 on this....oh yeah one more to add maybe is that reaper has friends family and partners all involved while supernatural try to keep it all under wraps from everyone they know which doesn't seem to be many compared to reaper

Reaper. Kevin Smith is one of the only reasons I watch tv shows that aren't from the 90's.

I love both shows, they are on my top 10. But maybe you are right that they are the opposite, but for me Reaper is a comedy i know that i watch reaper and I'll laugh a lot and that has 0.00000 Drama, while in supernatural has tons of drama and keep your but to the couch all the time with scary demons also that has a complicated background story and they know how to mix humor with drama. Reaper it's kind of a saga of the Scary Movies and Supernatural it's a hell of a terror movie.
