SPN 9.20: Bloodlines

“Bloodlines” was not an episode of Supernatural, so I won’t be reviewing it. To be honest, I’m not reviewing it because it was complete schlock and I don’t want to have to watch it ever, ever, ever again. It was like The Godfather meets Knots Landing meets The Originals. Was there really even any reason for the characters to be vampires or werewolves or whatever? And how did that one guy take out a VIP room full of monsters? And shifters who don’t shed their skin now? Really? Why did Jensen, er I mean Dean, look so annoyed throughout the ep and Sam just looked harried and confused? Maybe, they didn’t recognize the world they were in? Or they couldn’t understand how they couldn’t know that a major city was run by monsters? Yeah, I’m confused too. Bloodlines isn’t related in any way to Supernatural. It didn’t even have good eye candy or a character worth investing in.

So I guess this a review by way of non-review. Thoughts?

    Yeah, Bloodlines doesn’t seem like it correlates at all with happens on Supernatural. Like what about the apocalypse? I mean those almost human monsters were all afraid of a war breaking out but that almost happened with the apocalypse. And again when their Mother got broken out of Purgatory. And the only shifter that can shift without leaving a big gross mess is the Alpha. Who I kind of also thought was their father so why does this family have one? The alpha wasn’t killed that long ago. Unless he sets up families, which would be cool for the show to expand on that.

    • The whole thing just didn’t feel like the Supernatural universe. It was like Sam and Dean were dropped into an alternate universe. The could have been dropped into Teen Wolf or The Vampire Diaries or The Originals for all the connection they had to that world. There wasn’t even a spinoff character to tie the shows together. The producers were just trying to play off the Supernatural fandom, and it worked. The ratings were good, but I wonder what will happen when the show has to make it on it’s own. No doubt it will air in the slot preceding Supernatural in the fall.

  2. I agree. It seemed unfamiliar.

  3. Episode was terrible… recently joined wordpress and glad to see the community here agrees on this. This felt like Sam and Dean got tossed into a typical CW ‘teen show’ that looks pretty, with pretty people, predictable love triangles…. nothing original at all.

    • Yep. I’ve yet to see a single fan who didn’t think Bloodlines was complete crap.

      • It’s too bad, I was hoping to have a new show to watch once SPN ends someday… it would have been nice to see a spin-off about Jodi Mills or another established ‘guest’ character that we’ve seen over the years.

        • Yeah, absolutely. I was really surprised that Kate the werewolf from Bitten or Krissy and the hunter kids from Freaks and Geeks weren’t in it at the very least.

          • Krissy would’ve been perfect!

            • Right? It would have made so much sense and actually been a spinoff. Bloodlines is about as related to Supernatural as The Originals would have been.
