Well. I haven’t seen the show since November so all I remember is that Dean was a demon and then he wasn’t. Dean also had a prospective murderer named Cole. Dean was still dealing with the effects of the Mark of Disdain. Dean broke up with Crowley.
And I’m guessing that the main complaint before next season starts will be that Dean never has a storyline.
The best time to quit a show is either right after a season premiere – “I’ll catch up later”, and then you NEVER DO – or, right before the finale because you can pretend that they didn’t fuck everything up beyond repair. Unfortunately when every episode of Supernatural is a lesson on How To Fuck Up The Show Even More, knowing when to quit is impossible. DO I QUIT TO SAVE MYSELF? OR DO I CONTINUE SO I CAN MOCK THESE PEOPLE AND CALL THEM STUPID JUST TO MAKE MYSELF FEEL BETTER.
We all know what choice I’m going with. I’m still half-quitting though. Ahem.
Anyway, finally watching the finale! Better late than…watching it at all, but I’m dense, you all know that. I’m a danger to myself.
What This Episode Was Called: Sacrifice
What It Should Have Been Called: The One Where The Writers Exceed All Previous Attempts At Ineptitude
Actually, what’s happening with all of their faces? Jared looks like someone is denying him food (STEAK, OBVIOUSLY) and dangling it in his face from a distance. Jensen looks like he isn’t sure what facial expression he’s supposed to have and Misha looks discombobulated.
I haven’t even attempted to watch an episode since the last one I saw…but I’m going to try and finish the season and get it out of the way. There’ll probably be something up by Friday. I don’t know if I’m going to do any of the ones I haven’t watched, is there any point? I do want to watch them though just to have it out of the way, and also because I have a few downloaded because I’m stupid.
I have no idea if I’m doing season 9. Ideally, I’ll be watching…but I’m extremely out of the loop right now and there’s a good chance that I’ll just forget that Supernatural exists between now and whenever the hell it airs. LOL.
Anyway…..ANOTHER SHITFEST OF A SEASON IS OVER! Rejoice with Carlton, people.
I can’t wait for more: questionable acting (everybody), questionable hair (JAAAAAAAYRED), questionable tans (Jensen), on-screen pointlessness (Saint Misha Collins and the angels, Crappy!Crowley…everuone), punchable characters (Garth, Felicia Day, Kevin….everybody), abysmal writing (every episode) and fucking ridiculous, half-assed, poorly thought out plot (Carver, this one’s on you) and……BIZARRE CAMERA ZOOMS that make the show look like some sort of low-budget, fan made horror movie.
Also, more half naked women being tortured!!! FOR RATINGS!!
Okay so, I know that it’s maybe….oh what the hell, I haven’t watched it but I’m going to judge it anyway. Yup.
What It Was Called: No idea.
What It Should Have Been Called: Ponytail of Doom.
At some point I will watch it because I was foolish enough to download it. But yeah, the OCD freak in me refuses to jump from episode 10 to 12. Even if I’m happy to pretend that 11 in this case simply doesn’t exist.
I literally finished the episode and instantly, I had no idea what the fuck went on. They crammed like four different storylines into the episode or whatever, because that’s how to make good TV.
Previously: Sam got Crazy Martin killed but was too busy whining about how Dean played him to really give a shit. Dean growled in defence of his BFF Benny. We unfortunately finally saw Amelia in present day and well, zero fucks were given on my end of things.
In this episode: THE WRITERS REVERSE THE JESS RETCON. SAM TRIES AND FAILS TO CONVINCE ANYONE THAT HE’S IN LOVE WITH AMELIA. DEAN…HARASSES KEVIN. CAS…DOES STUFF. CROWLEY IS BORING. CROWLEY 2.0 IS ALSO MUNDANE. HEAVENLY SECRETARY RETURNS! MATT FROM BUGS RETURNS. Kevin doesn’t die. And one more special thing.
What The Episode Was Called: Torn and Frayed
What It Should Have Been Called: Bye, Bye, Bye/Don’t wanna be your fool/In this game for two/So I’m leavin’ you behind/No Strings Attached/Any relevant song Nsync title.
8.05 – Benny being a stupid douchebag while Sam spirals into flashback repeatedly. Sam meets Benny. SAM GETS ANGRY. SAM MORPHS INTO THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Sam refuses to cut his hair.
8.06 – DJ Qualls is annoying. Sam has sex. Dean is bamboozled by a coin that gets its own SPECIAL SPN MONTAGE.
8.07 – At Home With The Tran’s! Dean is attacked by a bear statue (I DON’T CARE OKAY. THAT’S WHAT I TOOK THAT SCENE TO BE). Kevin is not killed off. Sam refuses to cut his hair but saves the day…but not really. Still, DEMON BOMB. Castiel is attacked by two eye-shaped lightbulbs AND SAVES THE DAY. Crowley is useless.
