** The premise owes more than a bit to ''Ghost Rider'', but there's a lot of smaller nods as well, most blatantly to ''{{Film/Ghostbusters}}'' in the first and third episodes.

* DevilsJobOffer: The premise. Sam's parents sold him to the devil before he was born and now the devil has come to collect - by making Sam track down souls who have escaped hell and sending them back.



* LikeABadAssOutOfHell: Played straight and subverted. Although all the souls are escapees from Hell, implying a certain amount of badass-ness, the fact that Hell is apparently extremely overcrowded means that pretty much anyone can get out if they set their mind to it.

* TrickedIntoSigning: In "My Brother's Reaper", Sam had to get a guy to sign the [[DealWithTheDevil contract for his soul]], so he slipped it in with a delivery receipt. Unfortunately for Sam, the guy knew what he was up to and signed it with an alias.
