SEASON 8


Supernatural 8.23: Well played, my arch nemesis. Well played.

Nostalgia for the golden years flows through me as Carry On My Wayward Sun starts. The editing department tries frantically to convince us that something interesting actually happened this season by concentrating on lots of beheadings. We open up on the long belated return of this flawless Queen and her even more flawless eyebrows: Unfortunately, …

Supernatural 8.21: Canon is what you make of it, my friends

As I sat down to write this recap, I thought about how freaking wanky everyone in fandom is right now and I couldn’t help wondering “why is everyone so angry?” I’m including myself in that in the sense that I kept getting upset at dumb shit on the show this season, and then I just …

Supernatural 8.20: The Red-Headed Calm Before the Storm

I think we found the theme of the season: So this was, of course, one of the better episodes this season, although the bar is so low at this point that “not raping a dog” puts you in the win column. And because it was a good episode (and we know those are the least …

Supernatural 8.19: LOL CANON

Lets do this. We open up on the God Whisperer, who suddenly has a reverbed Fergus in his head sounding like a second-rate non-equity tour version of the Phantom of the Opera. The Whisperer is understandably horrified when he looks in the mirror and sees the lack of his masturbation hand. The only one nearby …

Supernatural 8.18: The Super-Doo Gang and the Sledgehammered Tale of the Woobie Vamps

You guys know I will go to any lengths to insert Adam Glass’ Greatest Creation Pedo Dog (Mr. Fizzles is like “Whatchu talkin’ bout, JC??”) into a recap of one of his gloriously mediocre episodes. You know, some of my best work has come from a Glass episode. Hell, The Legend of Don was borne …

Supernatural 8.17: The Rufus and Victor show in my mind gets its female lead

I have discovered the key to enjoying SPN season 8: We know that shit is gon’ get real when we open up not on the random case of the week, but on Freckles himself lurking around Vancouver Warehouse #2. Suddenly, we get creeper!Sparks coming out of the dark and doing this– Which brings back every single …

Supernatural 8.16: And this is why they call it hiatus

So here’s the thing y’all: I officially have bronchitis, this episode was boring and regressive, I don’t trust Jeremy Carver, and fandom is annoying me this year week. What does that mean? Basically that my inspiration to recap this week’s episode is running on zero lol. BUT! My beautiful Kat still made some awesome gifs …

Supernatural 8.15: Pedo Dog Part Deux: This Time It’s (Really Freaking) Personal

Oh, Jeremy Carver. Before we begin, I would like to admit that certain members of my brethren have taken me to task for not acknowledging the egregious fact that Dimples has stolen a storyline from the rightful hands of his older, wiser, and–checks notes–more masculine-and-virile-in-every-way brother. I’m here to apologize to them and say that …

Supernatural 8.14: In which Jeremy Carver attempts to get rid of my restraining order

Guys. GUYS. I’m sorry that this recap is so late, but and I somehow managed to have an actual social life this weekend (don’t be shocked). But then I realized that the only thing I really wanted to say about this episode was this: But with, like, Kat’s gifs and screencaps of Jensen Ackles’ Face™. I’ve …

Supernatural 8.13: It was Sam Winchester, in the library, with Dean’s candlestick

Hey guys, look! The third episode in a row that didn’t make me want to bash myself in the face with a brick! Also the third episode in a row that did not have a side trip to Keebler Village or the Canadian Bayou. Coincidence? Or absolute 100% science? I’ll let you be the judge. …

Supernatural 8.12: So when did the multidimensional wavelength of celestial intent start molting?

OK, I’m not going to even pretend that my favorite part of this episode wasn’t the previews with JDM. Because of JDM reasons. This is where we really start: Yes, John Winchester was born in Normal. Somewhere in an office on the Warner Brothers studio lot in Los Angeles,  Jeremy Carver looks into his magical …

Supernatural 8.11: A handmaiden, a time traveller, a hero, and her fairy walk into a tent…

Thank fucking God for Charlie Bradbury. Last time, on Supernatural: Everyone was miserable. Now! EVERYTHING IS RAINBOWS AND SPARKLES AND FELICIA DAY’S FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE Fair warning–this recap will probably suck because a) the majority of it will just be me going HER FAAAAAAAAAAACE and b) it’s way harder to make a funny mocking recap of an …

Supernatural 8.10: Poor fucking Don

Yo, Not-Casper Van Dien! I have a love tip for you. There’s this place called “Michigan” and it’s, like, super close to Texas. We’re talking a 4 minute drive, tops. In Michigan there is this really hot chick named Lisa Braeden. She gets a little too happy with the Mystic Tan, but she’s loyal, looks …

Supernatural 8.9: 500 MILES IN 5 MINUTES

YO, JEREMY CARVER: So before we begin all our fun shenanigans, lets just get this out of the way: I thought that was the worst mid-season finale in the history of the show. Even taking away the ~Golden Years~ of Kripke, think about what we got the last two years. First the epic Death resouling …

Supernatural 8.8: Oh, well, we almost had a romantic ending

So from the previews of this episode I figured that we were going to get 42 minutes of Bees-worthy Sparks. We didn’t get that (only like 12 minutes worth) but in hindsight I would prefer that to the exhausting amount of time we spent in Keebler Village. But remember, folks! In an effort to make …

Supernatural 8.7: AMANDA TAPPING

  Really, kids. Did you think there could be any other title to this recap? So….that episode didn’t suck like I thought it would! Maybe because I was being force-fed angel food cake by: or (and this is more likely) it’s because I didn’t even get around to watching it for two full days, and …

Supernatural 8.6: Sam and Dean Winchester, and the Validity of Disappointment

Hey guys! Are you all hanging in there? Have you fallen victim to the carefully-crafted and rather diabolical versus wank that Carver has created? Come on in and lets talk. My first reaction after watching this episode (besides “Mom, do we have any peanut butter Oreos left??”) was pretty well described as a rage coma. …

Supernatural 8.5: There once was a show called True–I mean Vampi–I mean Being Human

Look, I gotta be honest with you, guys. There was a moment there in the middle of this episode when and I just started laughing. Like, literally looking at each other and cracking up. And it felt good, you know? Like, why am I taking this show so seriously? I mean, RuPeen’s unintelligible accent isn’t taking it seriously. …

Supernatural 8.3: Somewhere in the roadhouse in the sky, Jessica Moore is crying into her beer

  Oh hello, everyone! Sorry about that disaster of a recap last week, but today is another day, and I have reached my zen place. Which means that I have managed to push the brunt of my rage and bitter despair way down deep into my chakra and enabled me to write these recaps without …

Supernatural 8.2: No big!

So I was out of town this entire weekend (a social life?!!? WHAT’S THAT??) and I’m super busy at work this week, so the recap for this week is going to be a more condensed version than usual. I promise to try and get back to normal this Friday, unless this week’s episode inspires me …

Supernatural 8.1: One more time, with way less feeling

Sam Winchester: People don’t just disappear, Dean. Other people just stop looking for them. So, remember how in my last recap of S7, I was all excited about how my favorite SPN writer Jeremy Carver was coming in to take over and save the show and how he really gets the brothers and there was …

    have recently stumbled upon your reviews….you’re taking time away from other things i could be doing with my life. cease and desist -or at the very least go back and do seasons 1-4 (and i LOVED season 4 despite your seeming unhappiness with it!) that is all for now. i’ll be back. (and maybe use caps next time for other than emphasis.)
