note from supernaturalsnark: because I am so (UNDERSTANDABLY) tardy when it comes to watching the show these days, the awesome JM, has offered to get her snark on, in her own way, and do some episodes (that I probably won’t ever watch). I’m pretty sure episode 10 is the next one I’m watching. Or the finale. OF COURSE, NOW I’VE JINXED IT. Anyway, I actually blogged about this episode before and its wonderful title Dog Dean Afternoon, and I am sad (for everyone who it was inflicted on) to say that it sounds even worse than it originally sounded.
Over to JM!
This episode was sucky. Really sucky.
There were maybe two moments where I chuckled. The rest? My jaw was on the ground at how mind-numbingly bad it was.
I’d read spoilers about this episode many moons ago, about how Dean gets to talk to animals and they’d even given it a rough draft title of “Dr. Deanlittle.” So I guess I knew what we’d be in for. Jensen talked it up and said it would be like Yellow Fever.
Wow, it was bad.
First, the talking animals. If you’ve ever seen the “Look Who’s Talking” movies or Dr. Doolittle, it was that sort of thing. But it was all wrong. Even Jared thought it was all wrong. That’s really saying something.
The German Shepherd they interrogated sounded like a mafia type guy. Think of a Sopranos minor player. Only thing I liked was him begging Dean to change the radio station when they had “I Want to Know What Love Is” by Foreigner on (agree w/the dog big time here…). The Yorkie? Oy. That was teeth-cringing bad. He sounded like some really bad impersonation of Larry the Cable Guy or I don’t even know what. And he was really annoying. I was almost waiting for Sam (whom he bribed to get a belly rub in exchange for info) to flip him off – though he’d probably bite Sam. Actually, that’d probably be a lot more entertaining than the way the scene actually went.
The pigeon thing was kinda amusing, actually. Dean’s always made me snicker when he displays purple rage, LOL.
Dean acting like a dog? The “fetch” thing was eh… somewhat amusing. The “barking” and snarling at the mailman?? Not enough facepalm. And the leering at the female poodle? That was…. Freaky McFreakerton.
The Zeke/Sam thing is being dragged out to the death now. Shouldn’t Sam be a wee bit more suspicious of what’s going on? And shouldn’t he question Dean a lot more? I get it, they’re going to build up to some massive fallout but dragging it out to this extent is making things a bit unrealistic now…
The special effects with the Zeke transformation… no comment. If the Stargate franchise hadn’t all but dissolved by now, I’d say they should sue for copyright infringement LOL.
Sam’s hair is still bad, at least 95% of the time. I won’t keep saying that for each snark I’ll do. I’ll just call it “Ibid.” Whenever you see that, you know what I mean. I’d say it makes me weep, but I think I’ve become exhausted weeping for it by now.
That’s about all I got. Next time! Hilarity ensues as Castiel gets a job at the Kwik-E-Mart! How will he deal with Apu, his tyrannical boss? Will he ever figure out how to work the Super Squishee machine? Can Dean help out? Will babysitter Kevin let Sam and Crowley stay up to watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta marathon? Stay tuned!
I WOULD SO WATCH A SHOW ABOUT KEVIN AND CROWLEY WATCHING REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA. IT SOUNDS INFINITELY BETTER THAN THIS CURRENT MANIFESTATION (or infestation) OF SUPERNATURAL.
Of course, I would rather watch Real Housewives of Atlanta, period. And I do anyway and it is AWESOME because bitches be cray.
Dean wanting to have sex with a dog is par for the course with this show. At any rate, he’d probably sell its soul before the night was up.
