So basically, I pretty much quit the show during season 8. And then I came back. And then I sort of watched the first episode of season 9 and quit for real. Not the conscious quitting but the ‘I meant to watch it but just kind of forgot and had better shit to watch’ kind of quitting. And then I came back. Somebody saaaaaaaaaaave me, let your warm hands break right through it (it being the mystical force that keeps bringing me back).
Speaking of Remy Zero/The Smallville theme song. Please answer my educative poll.
Why am I still torturing myself with this show? That’s the question I ask myself every time I sit down to do one of these. And then I realise that I won’t get the answer to that question until someone tells me what exactly the writers are smoking, because clearly, the fumes have gotten to me via my screen. Apparently season 10 sounds interesting….just like season 9 did, and season 8 before that, and season 7 before that, and season 6…I think we all know how season 10 will go. It will start off shit, get shittier, improve for one episode, and then begin a rapid descent into farcical territory.
What the episode was called: Stairway to Heaven (How clichéd!)
What it should have been called: Hallway to Bullshit/The Hilarious Case of Jensen Ackles’ Face
I realised that I missed off season 9 from my graph in my last post, so I decided to do something a little different.
Anyway, previously: DEAN WAS IN ZOMBIE MODE AND ON THE PATH TO FAILURE, SAM WAS….RUNNING AROUND, CAS WAS…ALSO RUNNING AROUND. METATRON IS EVIL. THIS IS SOMEHOW SAM AND DEAN’S PROBLEM? SAM AND DEAN ARE ALSO STILL TRYING TO KILL SOME DEMON, TO THE EXTENT THAT DEAN HAS THE ‘MARK OF CAIN’ ON HIS ARM. CAIN IS…A DEMON. SO…
I am in a snarky mood, so…I will try and do a recap this week, maybe an earlier episode because I don’t have time for any Metatron tomfoolery right now. And I heard that they made Garth a werewolf? AND ALSO APPARENTLY DEAN’S A DEMON NOW? I’m probably going to wrap my head in cotton wool before attempting the finale, because Lord knows that I’m going to be bashing it into the wall. Over and over and over (and over) again.
In the meantime here is an informative graph.
A graph showing the acting level of Jared, Jensen and Misha in season’s 1-8 This is what I do in my spare time. It’s sad.
In all fairness to Misha, he’s probably at a 40 in season 4, but somehow I got more personal satisfaction by grading him with zero for everything. I must be a hater. :P
I came across Undateable by accident. I was searching for something else (I have no idea what) and I saw it and I looked it up and decided to check it out. Mostly because it’s a sitcom and those are twenty minutes long. I used to think that sitcoms were for stupid people who didn’t have the attention span to sit through a 40 minute show, but then I realised that I was a stupid person who no longer has the attention span to sit through a 40 minute show (and it’s sad, bro). And I kind of miss having a sitcom that I genuinely love, like I did with Happy Endings. Trophy Wife was good but it wasn’t great and How I Met Your Mother stopped being funny a while ago, and the ending doesn’t sound to promising. Modern Family is still decent but it lacks the spark of its earlier seasons. Anyway, the premise of Undateable sounded kind of terrible. A bunch of misfits who are deemed not to be dateable by society or whatever because they’re this and that (read: either socially awkward or emotionally stunted).
I’m about to start watching Scandal’s third season & I wrote this AGES ago, but never posted it, so here it is instead of a SPN recap because I am busy avoiding Supernatural watching The World Cup at the moment.
So I watched the first two seasons of Scandal and just. I don’t get the hype. The first season had one of the most ridiculous finales I’ve ever seen. And then almost every single episode of the second season matched the ridiculousness of that episode.
The good news is that Jared finally got a haircut that didn’t involve him standing in front a mirror with a beanie, a pair of blunt garden shears and shitload of tears.
The bad news is that he’s still an idiot.
Onto the spinoff episode! I’ve been told that it’s worse than all of the worst episodes of Supernatural combined. This doesn’t surprise me. No one with any common sense saw the need for a spin off or a way in which it wouldn’t be completely abhorrent and stupid, but well, nobody said that The CW had smarts.
