Supernatural In Review- The Vessel

So, that was one hell of a trip. Must say, I’ve missed our excursions through time, so it was lovely to return to the past on Dean’s- Jesus, Dean’s fifth time-travel experience, if I just counted that right. It’s already become an item of note that this episode was particularly cinematic, for which I expect we can thank John Badham, […]

Supernatural In Review- O Brother Where Art Thou?

So first off, I’d like to establish that this review is going to be in no way rational or objective. (Are you really meant to be objective about SPN anyway? I don’t think so.) I’m going to have a little bitch about weird plot contrivances, but that aside, I thought it was kind of amazing. And here’s why: despite my […]

Supernatural In Review- Plush

First of all, apologies for this horrifically late post. I have been absolutely deluged in work and have two sets of readers baying for my blood, so, yeah. Next week’s review should be up on time. This will come as a surprise to no-one, but I liked Plush a lot. Sheriff Donna, who I’ve loved since The Purge, is absolutely […]

Supernatural In Review- Our Little World

There’s a lot to say about this episode. Of course, it’s a contribution from the writer of The Executioner’s Song and The Werther Project, so I’m really not surprised. One very interesting thing about Season Eleven is that it’s cleaning up a lot of my grievances with past seasons- or specifically Season Seven. You all know my love affair with […]

Supernatural In Review- Thin Lizzie

This was the debut episode for new writer Nancy Won, and I liked it a lot. She clearly knows her lore- the continuity here was lovely. First let me talk about the serial killer obsession thing (because I categorically refuse to call it a fetish, okay). That was brought in for the first time by our dear Mr Berens in […]

Supernatural In Review- Baby

Baby didn’t feel like an episode of TV; it felt like a personal experience. We are there inside the Impala, watching foam drip over the windows, and, later, blood. Sam and Dean genuinely have fun during Baby, with Seger singalongs and hookups and remniscenses. Finally, this is an episode that fills in the gaps- we find out what goes on […]

Supernatural In Review- The Bad Seed

So far, the thing that’s surprised me most about this season is how funny it is. I mean, we’ve got our fourth apocalypse incoming, Dean encountered a soul-eating baby, Sam was infected with a zombie virus, Cas turned into an attack-dog. Yet the show’s here joking about mega-covens and- ahem- “Uncle Crowley“. This episode opened with Rowena and her Mega-Coven […]

Supernatural In Review- Form And Void

As I was saying to Barb the other day, they might as well rename everything past Season Five ‘How Much Can We Beat Up Sam Today?’. This week, the pretty of Misha Collins notwithstanding, Cas actually trumped Sam on the beat-up scale. But hey. I’m being mean. I actually loved the episode. The first thing I noticed- and this was […]

Supernatural In Review- Out Of The Darkness, Into The Fire

Quite honestly I have no idea where this season’s heading. And at this stage in the show, that’s by no means a bad thing. Allow me to introduce myself: Wren Collins, shit-stirrer and Vivisecting Supernatural creator. Geek Girl Rising has kindly invited me to come review for her, so I’m afraid you’re stuck with me for the forseeable future. For […]
