SPN 10.21: “Dark Dynasty” Review

Sam and Dean Winchester

When I reviewed “Paint It Black” the previous offering from writing Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Lemming, I said it was the most boring episode of Supernatural ever. With “Dark Dynasty,” they’ve lowered the bar further and written the dumbest episode ever. Filled with poor characterization, terrible dialogue, and lazy plotting, this episode had this viewer experiencing a gamut of emotions from stunned disbelief to unintended  hilarity. I can’t even feel anger anymore at the bad writing. They don’t deserve that much investment. (more…)

SPN 10.18: “Book of the Damned” Review

Sam, Dean and Charlie

“Book of the Damned” was season ten’s second episode starring writer Robbie Thompson’s inimitable Charlie Bradbury. Not only is Charlie smarter than Sam and as brave as Dean, she’s a crack shot,  fights like a ninja, sews up her own gunshot wounds, and “friends” like a pro. She’s amazing – to an unrealistic degree. One of the things that has made Sam and Dean’s story believable is that they were raised to be hunters.

SPN10.11: “There’s No Place Like Home” Review

Sam and Dean Winchester

Supernatural writer Robbie Thompson brought back his favorite girl genius in “There’s No Place Like Home” this week, and from my perspective at least, it benefited from a lack of angel, demons, and multiple storylines. I join fans critical of the interwoven storyline episodes like last week’s “The Hunter Games” as being too chopped up and frenetic. It’s like trying to watch the individual balls in a juggler’s act. By the end of the performance, it’s a success if he just managed to keep them in the air. Maybe, that’s the idea. (more…)


SPN 9.04: Slumber Party review

 

Crowley is my spirit animal

“Bollocks”

Crowley pretty much sums up my feelings for Slumber Party, Robbie Thompson’s fourth episode in the Quirky Nerd Girl series. I’m still trying to think of something positive about this episode, so let’s start with the problems and maybe I’ll run across something positive as I go. Don’t hold your breath. (more…)
