Intermission :)

Supernatural 4.05

Yes, not every joke hit home and sometimes the writing was trying too hard. But in general I found it to be cute and funny and major props for the attention to detail the show displayed. Lots of other shows with bigger budgets wouldn't have bothered with that. The credits, the scenes with the "monster" attacks, the music, the intermission, the atmosphere, certain scenes/certain shots.

Also, I generally like how Edlund writes Dean, i.e. with a brain. And with some lust for live. Sure, bits like the maverick stuff were coming on too strong but I didn't find it too fratboy-ish. Some yes and in the hands of a lesser actor, hoboy, but Jensen is A in making that chaming. And it was nice that he got the girl and was deflowered again. Teehee.

But Porky II? Isn't that "Eis am Stiel"? *shudder*

Really liked the girl. She was kick-ass yet fun and sparkly. Take note, writers everywhere, women don't have to be mean to be strong. And a nice showing for the sick fan she was named after.

Dorkula was funny too.

Sam ATE. Did everybody see that? And the way he shadow-stalked the guy in his undies. Great shot. Also his little goofy grin after the ear didn't come off? Heh.

Lederhosen? Oh show. Dorkula stripped an unconscious Dean, yes? Perv! :-p


Little nitpick: movie-buff Dean doesn't know Dracula? As in Mina and Harker? They're practically in every movie.

Also, I am ready to see Dean not as a Deansel in distress but as a kick-ass hunter. I know, next week no luck again but after that, please? My heart just lies with the action man.

I'm still in glee the shapeshifter named herself "Lucy." IN GLEE :D

Liked Dean too, but honestly? In comparison to last season, I didn't find Dean written particularly dumb in any of the five episodes. HUGE PLUS.

He was obviously a stickler for movie protocol. :) But cheap enough to want to pay for his pizza with a coupon. Ahahaha.

Not stupid, that's true. I just felt the jerkishness last week was overdone and it reminded me of early Season 3 just the same.

YES. The coupon bit was brilliant. I also liked that they didn't explain the name lucy, either you got it or you didn't.

Nope, didn't think that at all. It kind of reminded me when my brother and I fight, minus the hitting part ;-)

The bored pizza delivery guy. Hee.

True, I didn't even think of that.

He was like that delivery guy from Home Alone :D

Oh, and yay for female characters that are actually LIKEABLE. Clever and strong without being bossy or bitchy. Yay for girls that I'd actually wanna be friends with!

An endangered species on TV. Did you hear the story about her name? I found it so cute that Kripke named the character after a very ill fan he either met at a convention or whose mother told him about at a convention. Awww.

Sam ATE. Did everybody see that?

I almost stopped the episode at that point to explain to my flatmate why it is so INCREDIBLE to see Sam eat. It's huge, it's cosmic, it hadn't happened in forever!! But she was babbling about how she wanted to see the boys in lederhosen at that point so I let her babble in peace. And she got her wish. *giggles*

Really liked the girl. She was kick-ass yet fun and sparkly.

Yeah, me too! She looked great, was funny and just kicked ass, as you wrote. It's been a long time since we saw one of her kind. I'm still wishing Tamara (the english hunter from The Seven Magnificent)will come back. Though I'm 100% sure it's never going to happen. *shrugs*

I really enjoyed the episode, I just have one regret: not enough Sam. And I swear it's starting to get old. If this wasn't the fifth episode in the same trend in a row(ok, maybe not last week episode but I hated this one so much it doesn't count!), I wouldn't mind, but right now, I want more of Sammy. Even if I really enjoyed having the old dynamic back between the brothers.

And I have only one thing left to say: "Guten Tag yourself". ;P

Oktoberfest - anything can happen. :D

The Kniestrümpfe? was even better, I thought. *g*

Going by the sides so far and without spoilering you, there is some meaty stuff coming up there.

Hahaha, that was awesome. And the pronounciation was pretty good.

We might have been yelling at the screen to see a full view of Dean. Because those Kniestrümpfe were just priceless. Because we all know that DEAN DOESN'T DO SHORTS.

Yay!!! I mean, I know it's suppose to come up at some point. I'm just tired of waiting. But yay anyway!!!
