HELLO!


Hey all, welcome to my blog. Even though it’s called ‘Supernatural Snark’, I’ve opened my heart and I now snark about any and everything. I can also be found at HIP TO BE SNARK (which is a play on Hip To Be Square if you’re wondering).

Anyway, if you’re here because you’re tired of Supernatural and the cast- I have a lot of posts that will be of interest to you. Way too many. I kind of wish they’d retire the show and their stupidity. If you’re wondering why I’m trash talking your favourite show – there’s an explanation post here.

Please read the rest of this post if you’re wondering where the Supernatural recaps have gone.

snarkvestigation: delving into the minds of overzealous fans


image

This is a topic that always interests me because much like food packaging, fanbases generally come with this warning:

maycontainnuts2

I know that’s not very PC, but some of them are just not people that I ever want to be around. I often find myself wondering why they behave the way they do and what their true motives are. What are they trying to achieve? Occasionally someone pops up here and I’m reminded of the downright toxic fan behaviour that occurs on certain parts of the internet. Luckily, I can laugh off most of the comments posted here but I have witnessed some pretty outrageous things over the years. The question I’m always left with is why?

Many, many months ago, I received an interesting comment and I decided to probe further. Here I present my findings and conclusions. To be fair I will add what I said and just paraphrase all of the responses that I got. Or is that unfair? Whatever, for privacy’s sake, I will do it like that, lol!

Donald Trump Winning Wasn’t A Bigly Surprise


image

So….to recap, the next President of the United States is someone who:
– was recently on a reality TV show — he was literally lying for a living.
– bragged about sexual assault and grabbing women by the pussy.
– is being charged for the rape of a 13 year old girl
– once recorded losses of over $900m
– doesn’t pay tax because he’s smart
– uses charity donations to pay legal bills and buy gifts
– doesn’t give a shit to charity

You done fucked up, America. You’ve fucked up real good. You know it’s messed up when BBC News have some kind of help form on their site.

Watching the election as an outsider has been interesting. It’s not too long ago that voting for the black guy was considered the protest vote. People were angry with Bush, angry with the Republicans. People are always angry at something. If we could monetize anger, no one would need Trump. We would all be billionaires. Anyway, many times during the process I found myself wishing that Donald Trump would win. If only so that four years down the line, these same people are crying and blaming Trump for every miserable aspect of their lives. It’s kind of like how everyone turned on Nickelback (like they didn’t at least catch themselves singing along to ‘Rockstar’ once).

Bad Movie Marathon #2: Scooby-Doo (2004)


pbmm

(POTENTIALLY)

BAD MOVIE MARATHON #2

…in which I examine if bad movies really deserve their woeful rotten tomatoes score

[previous movie]


Scooby-Doo | 2002

Yup. You read that right, lol.

scooby-doo_poster

Zoinks! Two years after a clash of egos forced Mystery Inc. to close its doors, Scooby-Doo and his clever crime-solving cohorts Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Velma (Linda Cardellini) are individually summoned to Spooky Island to investigate a series of paranormal incidents at the ultra-hip Spring Break hot spot.

scooby-doo-di-2

Rotten Tomatoes rating: 30%

Review excerpt: The acting is stiff, the story lacks all trace of wit, the sets look like they were borrowed from Gilligan’s Island — and the CGI Scooby might well be the worst special-effects creation of the year. (more…)

I was going to comment on the 3rd US Presidential debate but…


This is so much better. I’m just going to let his supporters convey the sheer lunacy of it all.

Introducing Fangirl #1 – Ben Carson with bonus irony.

Yes. People including YOU, Ben Carson. You’re an idiot.

An Open Letter To Trump Supporters…..


…and other ignorant, rude, racist and and stupid people.

Speaking of Trump, I read that Billy Bush has lawyered up. His lawyer claimed that Bush….

would not be able to challenge the bombastic billionaire during his commentary or he would have been out of a job.

image

I hear NBC may be gearing up to pay him $10 million dollars. Ridiculous.

In other news, Ben Carson is still a complete and utter shambolic excuse of a man. I have NO idea how he’s achieved what he has, but hey, he wouldn’t be the first smart man to lack basic intelligence. And he’s a pretty good puppet.

More and more women have made accusations of sexual assault against Trump. Trump, in true child-like, sniffing nose fashion, claimed that they’re ‘horrible, horrible liars’. I wonder what would make me more likely to believe them over him….hmm, could it be the video where HE BOASTS ABOUT DOING THESE THINGS BECAUSE HE’S A STAR AND THEY ‘LET HIM’? Oh, sorry. That’s just locker room talk. Disgusting.

In other other news, the UK can’t decide on whether they want a Hard Brexit or a Soft Brexit. This is despite the fact that only one of those is on the menu. Apparently, the EU are being difficult….uhm, no. It’s like someone saying they want to leave your birthday party because they hate you but can they have some cake first! It’s a bizarre stance to take when the UK are the ones with something to lose, but hey, what do I know?

Anyway, I’m just going to refer everyone back to the picture at the start of this post and sign off here.

retrosnark: SPN 5×22 (aka the one that I’m only posting because I’m clearing out drafts)


I’m technically still on hiatus with regards to my Supernatural viewing. I am…halfway through season 10 and I hear that they want to go up to 300 episodes so, I have plenty of time to not catch up. Seriously, how long is this madness going to go on for?

image

Anyway, I had this in my drafts and it is clean up day! I was going to rewatch Swan Song a while ago, but then I realized that I’d rather eat my own hair. I’m not and have never been a huge fan of the episode. I remembered recently that my view on the show took a swift downturn after ‘Swap Meat’, lol. So most of the episodes after that point will never go down as favourites of mine.

I think back when it aired, Swan Song was okay. I have to admit that once I’d seen it for the third time, I wasn’t all that impressed by it. Especially with the ‘coda’ at the end. And in hindsight, I honestly find it hilarious that Jensen was happy to claim that it was his idea before he saw the season 6 scripts. LOL. The regret must have been deep.

Anyway, I think right now the main problem with the episode is that nothing has really changed since then. Their other brother (I can’t remember his name now, whoops!) is presumably still in hell….uh, are they just going to leave him there? Have they ever mentioned him again? Do they seriously not care that he’s down there? Are we supposed to buy the brotherly love when they are literally the combination of the worst older brothers ever? I have no idea if they’ve clarified this or not but they have the temerity to have God on their show – they can bring back the half-brother for a damn second.

Not only that but Swan Song marked the start of what I call the ‘reset finale’ wherein everything the season has been building up to goes to shit because the writers cannot be bothered. And sure, brotherly love saved the day but that only happened by way of brotherly neglect so it doesn’t count.

The sentimental memory lane stuff was nice and all but still just a front to cover up the fact that barely anything happened. Sure, Sam drunk a ton of demon blood and gave into Lucifer. Sure, Dean stupidly decided to go after him. Sure, he got his ass beat for his trouble. And then Castiel fixed his face and almost everything that happened from that point on rendered Swan Song irrelevant.

I like to think that shortly after writing it, Kripke smashed up his laptop and screamed, ‘WOO, I’M FREE!!!’ as he stared at the charred remains of a season that went downhill long before Swan Song.

Still, at least it was somewhat entertaining. The dreck that has been aired past season 8 makes Swan Song look like amazing television.

Was the brother’s name Adam? I am officially Team SAVE ADAM! Or whatever his name is. If Jake Abel isn’t available I’m confident that anyone still watching the show would not question a cardboard cutout being used in his place.


Figured I’d post this before I (thankfully) forget even more about the episode and show. I’m glad that my brain is attempting to maximize its storage capacity by removing unwanted information!

Some observations from the 2nd US Presidential debate


Once again, I watched for the entertainment factor and once again, I was left more horrified than amused or entertained. I think most people’s general feeling when it ended was this:

This is probably the best synopsis for SPN that I’ve read in recent times…


image

Especially the “picking fights” part.

It truly captures the pointlessness of the show effortlessly. Those of us with clear heads have long determined that the show is currently about two masochistic siblings who willingly walk into situations and then have emo fits about how hard their life choices are. Lest we forget that they were regularly committing credit card scams and killing meatsuits all while lecturing each other about being decent people and morals. I guess that was just them being smart. #TrumpLogic

If there was justice in TV world, Dean would quit hunting to become a male stripper and Sam would retire to the Berkshires and start a self-motivational podcast. #JustSayin

In other news, a friend sent me a link to this video of a bunch of celebrities reading Edgar Allen Poe’s work and the delightful Jared and Jensen feature in it.

For the first time in a long time, I didn’t automatically cringe so hard that I almost pulled a muscle like I normally do when I encounter Jared Padalecki. I thought his reading was…inspired…by Jared Padalecki as Tahmoh Penikett as Gadreel. So, in a sense he was recycling and recycling is always good. Well. Maybe not on a TV show, but Jared probably doesn’t care too much about that. I will give him an A for Semi-Enthusiastic Facial Expressions and B for being able to do it beanie-free!

In the case of the extra delightful Jensen Ackles (and yes, that is sarcasm that you’re detecting), one thing I noted was that his facial expression mirrored my own when I’m trying to force myself to sit through an episode of Supernatural. I’m kind of happy that he seemingly felt the same torture, if only for a few seconds. However, his enthusiasm (or lack thereof) is on par with his current efforts (uh, or lack thereof – again) on Supernatural, so…

…it’s time for me to see myself out.


A topical post at last! And I might watch the season 11 episode ‘Baby’ at some point, so…there may be a recap soon.

A brief aside about ‘The Shield’


3gs4hte2rel5iijrqbo7

Am I the only one who constantly has (or had to given that the show is old now!) to suspend belief when the Strike Team (which consists of four cops) manage to take on multiple gangs(and these guys are usually violent, dangerous and armed) successfully…usually without backup? Occasionally there are so hiccups for plot purposes, but really…? They couldn’t make the team six guys or something?

It’s still a good show but…my belief is still suspended.

 

One Lamp To Live – Fight Edition


or…a collection of cheesy, stupid clips from One Life To Live!

I know, I know – I’ve reached a new low.

I have no idea how I ended up inside this One Life To Live YouTube black hole but it happened and I am dealing with it. Sort of. I think I might have to go back to recapping Supernatural. I might as well provide my one reader with topical snark. Although, #4 is kind of topical in the sense that I shoehorned in a Supernatural reference.

NOT THE LAMP!!!!

In this first clip, I have no idea what these two woman are fighting about. I love how dramatically they take each slap. And I hope to hell the blonde one was wearing clip on earrings. ’cause damn. I would not sacrifice my ear lobes for no bitch. NEVER.

Hilariously, the guy saves the lamp and sort of stands there watching them. Except it’s hilarious in that it’s really, really, really AWKWARD.

I love how the Rama goes from fighting to blackmailing the lamp dude seamlessly.

From searching the web, I got an explanation (kind of) for this fight. What stood out was….

They soon found out Rama wasn’t pregnant after Robert Ford accidentally poked Rama’s water-ballooned pregnant belly.

Water balloon??? AMATEUR. (more…)
