Hey Gang, I'm on a role and want to get in one last Best of/Worst of post today.
So, let's revisit Supernatural! Our episode to be scrutinized this time out is, "Shadow".
Our Main protagonists are: Dean and Sam Winchester, John Winchester.
OUR FAMILY IS: Grand!
Dean: I give Dean a Half-KUDO for distracting Meg by noisely 'attempting an escape' from his bindings, so Sam could do the escaping when Meg's back was turned.
Sam: Sam gets a KUDO for quickly figuring that a flare is exactly what's needed when saving your brother and dad from a shadow-based demon.
John: I like that John was suspecting a trap and was careful with his sudden appearance. I'll give him a Half-KUDO.
I'm a'gonna give the Forces of Evil a half-KUDO for the play at Sam and John Winchester [Dean seems to be seen as irrelevant to anything by Meg's master]. Sam is nearly captured, and John is very nearly killed off. And, I liked that the Daeva shadow-creatures killing Meg after she loses control of them, is also a big fake.
OUR FAMILY IS: Dimwitted!
Dean- Well, Dean's obsession with his little brother having sex is icky. But it wasn't as overly-pushy as in past episodes, so I'm letting him go without any demerits.
Sam- Nothing Sam did in this episode earned my ire.
John- For a change, I didn't find John to be demerit-worthy.
Well - I gotta go with a special Half-DEMERIT to the Forces of Evil for randomly killing off people, and then hoping/waiting for the Winchesters to show up because it is obvious that this whole 'Shadow'-creature is a set-up. I wonder how many times they had to pull this in how many cities before Dean and Sam just happened to discover it and make the trip? Seems really inefficient.
