Supernatural Episode Review: Yellow Fever

An excerpt:

“As Sam’s sitting there, he’s saying all those things that Dean has never wanted to hear. Saying them with dark tones in his voice and a finality that seems to be Dean’s biggest fear, that one day Sam will truly turn Dark and all this will be over, “all this” being the saving people, hunting things mantra that runs through Dean’s blood like, well, like blood. Because it is his blood and without it, I don’t think he can survive. Sometimes, I hate to think what will become of him when the last supernatural thing is laid to rest. Perhaps, like a gunslinger with no more bad men to kill, he’ll walk down to the streets of Laredo and wrap himself up in white linen and wait to die.”

Supernatural Episode Review: Monster Mash

An excerpt:

“Dean and the vampire fight, which is when Dean discovers that the MOW is a shapeshifter. As the chase scene ensues (as they do, and it’s a treat because I like to watch Dean running), I was particularly impressed by the stunt over the gate. The vampire comes running, and flies over the gate, complete with cape flapping, while Dean struggles with it, looking through the bars like an abandoned orphan. I’d like to give the stunt team and this actor a bunch of gold stars, which they can put on their calendars to remind them how well they did. Look, I know full well and good there was some sort of device, a mini tramp or something, that the actor stepped on to enable him to fly over the gate, but it was COOL, man.” 

Oh, Padalecki!! Do you even watch the show?

Jared Padalecki, Supernatural Comments Off on Oh, Padalecki!! Do you even watch the show?

Here’s an unlikely post from TV Guide, where Padalecki indicates his thoughts on the whole “has Sam slept with Ruby” issue. I’ll just quote the whole thing, shall I?

***
“Supernatural fans want to know: Did Sam hook up with his demon helper, Ruby? While series creator Eric Kripke thus far is mum on the subject, Jared Padalecki is willing to offer his own (albeit unconfirmed) opinion on the possibly sticky sitch.

Padalecki theorizes that the unlikely associates “have been lovers,” noting that “from the first episode this season, when Dean returns and Ruby (now played by Genevieve Cortese) is in her underwear and Sam is coming out of the bathroom, it’s hinted that Sam and Ruby have a bit more going on than, ‘Hey, let’s study how to kill demons.'”

Padalecki, however, stops short of suggesting that any hook-up (if one happened) means anything. “Maybe she’s just being nice to Sammy,” he says, “since he thought he lost his brother.”

Rant follows!

There’s so much wrong with this bit of speculation that it makes my brain hurt, although I’m not saying that Padalecki’s not entitled to speculate, heck, fangirls do it ALL the time. It’s just that his speculations seem so…well, so weird! What he’s saying here gives me the impression that he has no knowledge about the guidelines that Show has set down for demon lore. To paraphrase Guy (Crewman #7), does Padalecki even WATCH the show?

First, the whole “maybe she’s just being nice to Sammy,” idea is total hogwash. Ruby is in this for her OWN gain, and if Sam thinks she’s being nice to him, that’s for her benefit, not his. And although I can see Sammy being a bit blinded by whatever demonic wool Ruby is pulling over his eyes, I would totally expect that Padalecki would would know enough about what’s going on to know that Ruby is not nice. Not even for a demon.

Second, the idea of Sam sleeping with Ruby is so very, VERY wrong, because Ruby is a DEMON possssing a human female. If the human is dead and Sam’s having sex with Ruby, then it’s necrophilia. If the human is not dead and Sam’s having sex with Ruby, then it’s rape, because the human inside can’t say yes or no to said sex. I’m not sure which is worse, though I’m thinking it’s the latter, because the first one is just mostly gross, whereas the second one…is wrong, wrong, wrong.

So, either Padalecki is just being nice and trying to give TV guide an answer that he thinks they want to hear (which makes me roll my eyes and shake my head because you’d think after three years that Padalecki would have a bit more knowledge than this), or he’s saying exactly what he’s supposed to say in order to stir up as MUCH trouble as possible, although I wouldn’t think that Show needed to get publicity this way. Oh, Padalecki! Oh, Show! 

Supernatural Episode Review: Metamorphosis

An excerpt:

The brothers go to talk to Jack, who is in his garden, doing garden stuff. Typically, Sam introduces them both, and then they start to explain what’s going on. In this scene, unlike the earlier one in the Impala, the technique of skipping through the already-known facts about the rougarou make sense and saves time. The talk, naturally, does no good, except to give me more lovely close-ups of the boys, again in natural light. There’s lots of Sam’s lovely skin, and his noble brow furred in concentration, as well as tons of Dean, with his five o’clock shadow and his bright, green eyes. Which, as I’m sure you’ll understand, rather distracted me away from the dialog, which, of course, was the point of the scene and stuff.

Supernatural Episode Review: In the Beginning

An excerpt:

I particularly loved the scene where Dean talks to Mary in the living room, where she’s going through her stack of LPs, and didn’t that bring back memories? (You kids, LPs were what we had before CDs, okay? The fragility of which imbued the music on the black vinyl with more meaning and value than a cold, technical CD ever could. And they sounded better. Ask anyone.) Dean wants to know what John is like, and I applaud Show for asking this question because while my fangirl brain could make stuff up, it was nice to get it from the source. And yeah, Nice is the word to use here, apparently John was sweet and kind and romantic and dreamy, and believed in the happily ever after. Mary’s face glows when she tells Dean this, and Dean’s look of shock and surprise is very good and amusing, because yeah, this is a 180 from The Dad that I know and love and bring up as often as I can.
