Best Political Act By A Delusional God In An Election YearI'm blaming this award on the fact that this is an election year (even though there wasn't an issue in 2008), but there's no doubt that some poltical statements were often woven into the plots this season. The main arc ended up being about monsters taking over a major corporation and political figure, and manipulating the public via good old fashioned American values of greed and gluttony. As someone told me on twitter, it was the attack of the "corporate wank monsters."
However, I'm not giving Dick Roman or the leviathan any kind of award for their agenda. It all just wreaked too much of someone trying to tell me how much my lifestyle sucks and how much of a stupid drone I am for being this way. It's not something I like to see in my supernatural escapism show. Instead, I'm going with something better from the season opener.
Come on, admit it. When Castiel put himself on a stained glass window, that was pretty cool. Sure, it was a scene setup by the writers to purely convey a back handed slap to religious fundamentalism against homosexuals, but what a way to burn outright fear into intolerance. He even put in a deity halo! Talk about an overbearing sense of self importance. You knew a bad fall was coming, but that didn't take away from all the fun while it was happening. This is better way to communicate a liberal agenda in an election year.
