from what i read about this episode online since it aired was NOTHING but bad things about it. and even my the promo's it looked quite bad, so i went in with really low expecations and i ended up laughing quite a bit. and no it's not among the best of the series it's i don't think one of the worst either. it's an episode that has a really stupid idea and it does feel like Buffy would have done it 1st.
but honestly it's a decent episode, it's not as bad as others in the show to be fair. i don't know episode titles without looking them up but one of the worst is when Sam married that one girl that was a bad episode. far far far worse than this one. i don't think people should stop watching the show because of this one. and the OZ one i actually went in with low expectations as well and i liked that one actually.
so maybe keeping your expectations low is the key to somewhat liking it? either way it's a decent effort
The previous episode about the wizard of oz I just about handled and knew on that episode they had ruined a once great show, now this one, talking dogs and talking mice, thats it now, the show is ruined.
I bet there will be other farcical episodes in this series too, its now turned from a great supernatural horror to a comedy now, and they know they have such a cult following they can keep making seasons, but its us the fans left disappointed.
I came back to supernatural after having a break as season 8 was the last series I watched, but wth have they done to season 9, and there is a season 10 to come yet too, think I have had enough now, dean talking to mice is very silly.
Wow, what can I saw. This episode was god awful. My title sums it up perfectly.
Completely unoriginal and poorly written. The whole "barking at the mailman" was a complete ripoff of Malcolm in the Middle, where Reece joins a pack of dogs in his neighborhood and starts to act like a dog, even yelling "Hey! Hey! Hey You!" at the mailman through the window.
Way off the mark on this one there guys and girls. Don't waste your time. I feel I'm being quite generous with my 5 rating.
I'm a huge fan of one-off episodes. Especially Supernatural one-off episodes. No one does them better. Period. Giving the loyal fans a break from the constant dark and brooding plots of the series and the character diatribes about fate, hunting and setting the world right, it's always a treat when Supernatural gives an episode the one-off treatment. Not so much this time.
This episode is a sad farce of a Supernatural one-off episode. Bad Day at Black Rock, Mystery Spot, Wishful Thinking and The Real Ghost Busters are much, much better examples of how Supernatural has shined with an episode one-off.
In Wishful Thinking it was funny when the giant teddy-bear was drinking and contemplating suicide as he watched the horrors of 24 hour news coverage, seeing no hope for an existence in a world so wrought with pain, hatred and misery. It was humor and social commentary melded perfectly, yet it only worked because it was only happening because of some kids wish coming true. Not that we found out that Teddy Bears have a secret language, like we know have tied in to the Supernatural universe with animals being able to talk, and have Northeast accents as well
We can all agree, or at least I can surmise that we agree, that the series has definitely taken a hit to it's lore and origins ever since the end of Season 5. Change isn't a bad thing. I mean, who besides AC/DC can turn out the same product ever year for 30 years and have everyone call it brilliant? But, I digress.
Diverting from it's Christian-based roots and spreading out into the mythical has sent Supernatural spiraling out of control and into chaos. It seems the writers are cherry-picking themes and lore and throwing in everything from The Wizard of Oz (in that now we are to include that Oz as a dimension, is real, right along side Heaven and Hell and Purgatory) and now Disney themes, that animals have their own language and can not only speak English, but often communicate and know the make and model of Dean's car.
This season is awful. I hate to hate Supernatural, but it's hard when they're on the streak they're on right now. Season 9 better pick it up and fast, or I'll wait for it to be on Netflix next year so I don't have to be disappointed every week, just all at once, like TV should be.
This was actually another good episode. A funny episode. I understand they were trying to be funny, however i got a little irritated in how inconsistent the dogs IQ was. One moment he is as smart as a human in fact and the next he is just a dumb dog. I know its just tv, but its the details that make it seem realistic.
Following Charlie's advice they seem to be making the show more magical. Suggesting that the world once had a lot of magic in it, but was lost over time. So far i have mixed feelings about it. Some good and some not so good. We shall see how it turns out.
