- TV Show Review:
Sam and Dean investigate a bizarre murder in a college town. Close on the tail of their suspect, they bust into an apartment to find two dead bodies and a laptop cued up to some disturbing video footage. The footage begins with Brian (guest star Leigh Parker), Mike (guest star Brandon W. Jones) and Kate (guest star Britni Sheridan) hearing about an unusual animal attack in their town and the rest of the story is revealed through their eyes. Sam and Dean become unknowing participants in a unique student film. Thomas J. Wright directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.
Seriously, found footage?
SUPERNATURAL (8:4) Found footage? Really CW? The anticipation I had for tonight’s episode took a nosedive after the first ten minutes. I had to check repeatedly to make sure I was even watching Supernatural. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) weren’t front and center this time around, but rather college camera geeks who followed the standard found footage horror character mold–annoying dialogue, intimate moments, quarreling with a little blood mixed in.
We got to see werewolves make their lackluster appearance in the show. Last nights episode of Supernatural was unbelievably cheesy, and it’s disappointing the series would borrow from the found footage genre as inspiration. The acting was decent at the beginning of the episode, but then regressed to hardly watchable after thirty minutes had passed. Hopefully this found footage malarkey be a consistent go to as the season progresses. I usually enjoy how the show parodies or borrows from popular culture and Supernatural have done this brilliantly in the past seven seasons. Using found footage is a cheap scare tactic and it failed horribly.
More of Dean’s changing psychology was evident tonight because of how forgiving he was to Kate’s (Brit Sheridan) transformation. In the past, Dean hadn’t hesitated to kill before on the grounds they would eventually kill humans. Could his shifting morals have something to do with Benny (Ty Olsson)? Speaking of Benny, I was hoping this episode would center around vampires, and give more clues as to his motives. Supernatural does need to get back on track a little and give us a little more information on Benny, Castiel’s (Misha Collins) whereabouts, and where Kevin (Osric Chau) could be hiding and how do they plan on retrieving the tablet from Crowley (Mark Sheppard)?
Hands down, worst episode of Supernatural. Ever.
