I’m going to blog Supernatural as I watch it. Just because. Last week’s ep was good but had that filler feel which made it a bit unsatisfying. I don’t know anything about this episode. The channel I watch it on doesn’t show next week’s preview so I am unspoiled.
>>SPOILERS, such as they are, to follow for the Supernatural 4.5: “Monster Movie.”
Opening credits are old-style, old movie looking. Reminds me a bit of the musical episode of Buffy. This leads me to believe this ep will either rock or suck. I hated the ghost hunter ep last season, so we will see…
The show’s produced by a guy named Vladamir? For real?
The Metallicar zooms down a rown toward Pennsylvania. Ha. Vampire episode. Okay.
Sam’s feeling pouty. What else is new?
Black and white episode. “Time we got back to tackling a black and white case,” says Dean. Subtle humor is not the show’s strength.
Dean and Sam both look great in B&W. Raowrrrrrr.
Victim with fang marks on neck. Blonde chick unimpressed by Dean’s charm. Nice.
Dracula is loose in Pennsylvania. Waitress named Lucy. Cute in-joke. Coincidence?
LOL… Dean figures he’s a born again virgin since escaping from Hell. Sammy’s such a drag. Good thing he’s hot.
Horny teenager killed by wolfman. Commercial break.
Damn. Jensen Ackles is ridiculously good looking, isn’t he?
Cute ep so far but nothing special. I WANT CASTIEL!!! It’s kind of like when you’re into the plot of a book and there’s a unrelated scene in there that throws off the pacing.
Uh oh. Mummy coming up to join Dracula and the wolfman. “Holy mother of crap” indeed.
Blonde waitress confronted by Dracula. Cornered. Mace in Dracula’s eyes. Did Dean just rip off his ear? Because that’s gross.
Dean’s discovered, thanks the the severed ear, that the monster is a shapeshifter. Obviously one who enjoys old movies.
“The X-Files is a TV show. This is real,” says Dean. Oh, ha ha. The humor is sidesplittingly funny. Not.
Nice little “I save people” speech from Dean. Character growth? Good stuff. Obviously the blonde is evil. I can see it coming from a mile away.
Or “Lucy” is. Could it be that obvious? The shapeshifter is one of the girls. Or both of them. Since the shapeshifter attacked Jamie, it’s got to be Lucy, thus the Dracula-esque name. Right?
Sam w/ gun goes to confront projectionist whom they’ve surmised is the shifter. Now in the guise of the Phantom of the Opera. Psyche. It’s not the shifter, just a guy playing his organ. So to speak.
Sheepish Sam. Cute.
Lucy keeps blotting her lipstick. Not so subtle foreshadowing of something.
Dean is drugged. Oopsie. Dean hits the generic brunette. What a surprise.
Yep, the generic brunette is the bad guy. And Dean is unconscious and at the shifter’s mercy.
Of course, instead of being killed outright like the other shifter’s victims, Dean is taken elsewhere and strapped to a Frankenstein-like table. He really shouldn’t taunt the shifter when he can’t defend himself. Doorbell rings just before electrocution. Of course. Unimpressed Pizza Guy. $15.50 for pizza? Good deal.
Dracula has a coupon for the pizza. NICE. Love humor like that.
Sam puts two and two together back at the bar. He is a college boy, after all.
Blonde kind of looks like the old Ruby. But she’s a weak victim who does what she’s told. Yawn.
“Real is having your dad call you monster…and he tries to beat you to death with a shovel.” My favorite monsters on this show have been the shifters. I like their complexity. Not so much their gooeyness. Love monsters with some depth. But the monsters aren’t the heroes in this show, alas. Got more chance to explore that in Buffy.
Sam saves Dean. Dean is wearing lederhosen.
Blonde shoots shifter! Nice. “Twas beauty that killed the beast.” Riiiight.
Dean and blonde kissing before leaving. Sam waits patiently. If Dean had to be in a movie, he wouldn’t pick a monster movie. He’d pick Porky’s 2. Meh ending.
Okay… that was… not bad. Not the worst ep ever, but far from the best. I’ll give it a B. For B-Movie.
CASTIEL BETTER BE BACK NEXT WEEK!!
