You know how a couple of reviews back I ranted about how I hate vampire stories in Supernatural? Well, “Bloodlust” is the exception. This is an artfully crafted episode from the most epic Supernatural writer, Sera Gamble. There are so many layers in this latest Winchester brothers' adventure, aka storytelling at it’s finest. It reminds me why I love this season so much.
Overall, “Bloodlust” is a continuation of the brotherly drama from the previous episode, but better. For me, the brotherly issues were more fleshed out in this hour. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t so distracted by such a choppy plot and multiple new random characters. Both brothers are still hurting and still trying to get back into the swing of things, but Dean is spiraling out of control and Sam has made his primary focus to save Dean from himself.
Faith has always played an important role in my life. Being Jewish has been and always will be a part of me that I wouldn't trade for anything. The one thing that I wish I could see more of in film is the representation of Jewish people and who they really are. In recent history, we've gotten to see more of that with shows like Unorthodox on Netflix and plenty of others, but on mainstream cable television, we haven't really gotten to see a lot of Jews, unless they're a caricature, or it's mentioned but never really played out. Additionally, we don't often see Judaism as a whole spoken about or represented on film. We see a mention or a nod, but not often do we see Jewish characters as fully realized.
I will give Supernatural credit for trying, but more can always be done.
Hi, everyone! I'm back with another Supernatural Top Ten list! This time I'm featuring characters who either started as a Friend but then became a Foe, and/or characters who started out as an Enemy but later became an Ally. Once again, I chose my list by picking the first ten characters that came to mind, reasoning that these obviously had impacted and affected me the most.
Now before you read my list, write down what you would pick. What ten "Friend to Foe" and/or "Enemy to Ally" did you think of first?
Once upon a time there was a homicidal clown…Tell me if you’ve heard this one already.
I do get where Eric Kripke and John Shiban were going with this. In reality, clowns are creepy as hell. They’re “funny” strange, not “funny” haha. But aside from a chuckle or two watching Sam’s worst childhood nightmare surface, which is really strange considering his entire life is a nightmare, this story was too busy. It was disjointed mess that didn’t do any of the multiple stories present any real justice. Let’s follow the short attention span theater.
