Bottom Line: This is easily the best roommate comedy I have ever screened, My Pal Satan is hilarious from start to finish; I only wish there were a lot more episodes.
MY PAL, SATAN answers that age-old biblical question: “what would Satan be like as a roommate?” DONNA, a typical twenty-something is going to find out after she posts an ad for a roommate in order to make ends meet. She literally finds herself stuck with the “Roommate From Hell” in the form of SATAN. Their conflicts as roommates, and their unlikely affection for each other are a reminder that not only do opposites attract, but good and evil actually need each other in order to exist.

The smoke and makeup effects are great, and the voice effect for Satan is even better. While none of the special effects are over the top, they are all really well done and fit in perfectly with the show concept. (Style 4.5)
I could probably watch twelve more of these episodes. The interplay with Donna and Satan and the creativity of the situations that the writers come up with mesh to create one of the most fun to watch roommate comedies I’ve seen in web series land. (Watchability 5)
Yes, this is still a roommate comedy but it pushes the concept so far off the tracks that you might not even notice. (Novelty 4.5)
