Saw SPN 5x13.


Um, not my favourite ep.

Good Bits first - young John is awesome. I honestly didn't think that much of him in his first apperance, but man I think he is perfect.

Young Mary is still awesome.

Michael as John is creepy.

Anna dying - yeah. I'm really unhappy about this, completely unhappy. Show, remember how we talked about good death and bad death. This is prime example of characterisation rape and bad death. Fail.

The whole ep had cool moments, but overall registered as meh for me, and I'm pretty sure is due to the death of Anna. I don't think the show misogynistic, but it definitely have a tendency of wasting good characters, and choosing death (bad deaths) as a way to advance certain characters. It suck.

More later. Maybe.

Back to resume writing.

I have been incredibly underwhelmed by the last two episodes, the only redeeming quality in 5x12 being the idea of a bounty on Dean's head and in 5x13 Michael.

I was very much displeased with the way Anna was handled in this ep - it really did feel like they'd brought her back only to kill her off. Her 180 degree turnaround was a little unbelievable for me, Heaven's 'torture' notwithstanding.

I didn't even watch last week's episode because it sounded so dumb and pointless. Michael and Young!John are awesome. I can watch Michael!John all day, every day.

The way they handled Anna's character made me wince, and at the same time really dislike Castiel. Like, HELLO! Are we ever going to deal with the consequences of Castiel's actions, here? This is why I have problems liking Castiel at times. I don't need the writers to tell me that he is 'nice', that he is ALL good, that he has 'changed' by killing off a female character.

Yeah, it was incredibly bad, and I find myself very bored with the series. I expected more.
