You make a really good point about the way Dean died. It’s much more tragic because it is so mundane, much like Cyrano de Bergerac who was such a great swordsman and poet, but he’s killed (in the play) by a log falling on his head. This is much like that, and better for it.
Episodes 19 and 20 make for a very satisfying conclusion. In a way, I like the final episode better than a big “here’s everybody” fest. But, I can see why no one would expect a mature, thoughtful finale from this crazy show. It was hard, really hard watching sometimes, but I enjoyed the strange ride and I’ll miss the… Read more
Processed pop? Either we listened to 2 different things or you have an odd idea what “processed” and “pop” mean. That piece is instrumental work (piano mostly) overlayed on their vocal work. There is no digitization or “auto tuning” work of their of voices in that. It’s a very basic, clean piece of musical work with… Read more
And the last remnant of the old WB Network is now gone. RIP Michigan J. Frog.
I was really happy with it. You can see clearly where Covid hit the ending but it didn’t rob any of the emotion imho. After seeing the travesty some shows/series can make of their endings (GOT, Star Wars, Marvel 13RW and Scrubs, i’m looking at you), this was bang on. The rest of the season wasn’t the best quality but… Read more
I think this is a pretty poor excuse for an episode recap. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a beautifully emotional and simple ending in a lot of ways. The fact that he gets impaled on the nail and that it’s all so simple is part of what makes it work; Dean didn’t go down fighting in some big cosmic battle, but just in a… Read more
Every time I hear “The show should have ended after season 5" I think of some of their best episodes happening after that. So many great characters added. Yes, it’s not all perfect, but it’s definitely a bonus overall. After watching “Baby” in season 11, all I could think was “How many shows can be putting out some of… Read more
I’ve been watching live since the end of season one. I always envision the finale as having a lot of the elements that it had and always imagined Sam and Dean getting into heaven and finding the Roadhouse and everyone they loved waiting for them. I know we only saw Bobby, but I also understand that we’d likely have… Read more
It was fantastic. I think a lot of Supernatural fans put way too much of their own desires, interpretations, and fantasies into their expectations of the cast and crew, and honestly, it’s exhausting. Was everything wrapped up? No. Was it ever going to be? No. I mean, sure, there were 20 some episodes a season, but the… Read more
“There will be peace when you are done”, the final episode was about that peace and carrying on.
It totally was! It’s when Stu and Tom finally return to the Boulder Free Zone—it’s winter at this point—and they are met by two guards: Stephen King’s character (can’t remember the name), and Mike Lookinland (who I instantly recognized).
King and Lookinland can’t tell who Stu and Tom are right away because they’re… Read more
