Editor’s Note: In anticipation of Supernatural’s final season resuming on Oct. 8th, The CW is rerunning several of the initial 13 episodes from season 15. To get us all back into the groove of watching and discussing each story, Deb has agreed to share her recap reviews of the good, the bad and the random of each episode! Enjoy!
This is how this works: I will give my TOP 5 choices for the Good and The Bad of each season 15 episode that has aired thus far, PLUS a random fact that may or may not have anything to do with the episode. It depends what I am thinking at that moment! After you read my opinions, I would like to hear your TOP 5 Good/Bad list from the same episode. The point is that every episode must have both good and bad stuff for you, or you are not being honest with yourself. ? “The Bad” stuff might be easier to write when the episode is not to your liking, then other times “The Good” will be easier. The Good/Bad stuff can be silly things – that is alright too!
This will be a good catch up before we all watch the last new episodes. So, if you like, join me in watching the reruns. Hopefully, I can write these recaps for all the remaining episodes. We Got Work to Do!
Supernatural 15.04 “Atomic Monsters“
1. The opening scenes
2. “Sounds of Someday” by Radio Company
3. Good cast
4. Side story with Chuck
5. Becky Rosen was written well
1. Can I use the episode’s opening scenes for all five of my favorite things on ‘the good’ list? No? It is not fair, you say? Oh, alright. But the red opening was a moody, action packed, marvelous piece of cinematography. It was nice to see Benny too, even if it was only for a moment. It was also great that Ackles asked him to be back one last time (for now). The red lights and the boys looked pretty damn good.
2. I really LOVED this song and the scenes where it was played. It is so moody and sad at the same time. The actor who played Billy Whitman did a really good job. Hopefully, though, they handed the parents over to law enforcement officials. I also hoped they could have told the kid that there have been vampires who have not drunk blood from people. But he did the right thing and that is all that matters.
3. All of the cast did a great job in this episode even if I mostly don’t like teenagers in stories. The parents were hideously good and also the son and the girls. Even the person in the squirrel? beaver? (who knows) mascot costume. Jared and Jensen were the cherry on the cake, like they always are. Sam talking how he is feeling in the end really punched me in the gut. His anxiety carried through the whole episode.
4. The side story with Becky and Chuck was VERY interesting. Unfortunately, it went over the main story that was not that good. Becky tried to help Chuck because he seemed vulnerable then, in the end, we got to the wrath part. Chuck is actually very scary, not to mention cruel. Rob Benedict can play all the variations of Chuck well.
5. I thought it would never be possible, but I truly liked Becky in this episode. She had fixed her life and got a family in the process. She also turned her passion into something productive. Her Supernatural miniatures are something even I would want to buy. That is why it impacted me so much when Chuck did what he did. It was cruel and uncalled for.
1. Meh teenagers
2. Side story more interesting than main story
3. Woah, some psycho parents…
4. Chuck, I do not like you
5. The End
1. I am just not fond of teenagers in TV shows or movies even if they are well acted. Usually it is because of the writing but in the case of this episode, there were much more interesting things happening that I wanted to return to. Also, oh boy – the shallowness was mind boggling.
2. Like I mentioned earlier, the side story was much more interesting than the main story, and that is not good when the main story has our heroes in it. I know that they were not able to be part of the secondary story but that does not mean that their primary story could not have been as good.
3. The actors played them well, but those parents. I hope they were put in the naughty corner if not for good then for a long LONG time. I guess them loosing their son should be enough, but they seemed to care about the future of their son more than their son. BEGONE with them!
4. Chuck, so vulnerable and defeated, comes for Becky to what… Get help for his writer’s block? After she helps him, he decides to reward her by seemingly killing her husband and kids. I mean, they are gone… What does that even mean? So, as she is scared out of her mind and worried, he reveals he is God and sends/kills her too. Bad Chuck, BAD!
5. The end Chuck was writing… I do not like it. What ever it is. Because how Becky reacted and where she was in her life, just no. Also, I do not want to think about the end. That is probably true for all the fans, so it hits too close to home. What ever it is… We are in of one hell of a ride.
Bacon is a type of salt-cured pork made from various cuts, typically from the pork belly or from the less fatty back cuts. It is eaten on its own, as a side dish (particularly in breakfasts), or used as a minor ingredient to flavor dishes (e.g., the club sandwich). Bacon is also used for barding and larding roasts, especially game, including venison and pheasant. The word is derived from the Old High German bacho, meaning “buttock”, “ham” or “side of bacon”, and is cognate with the Old French bacon.
Meat from other animals, such as beef, lamb, chicken, goat, or turkey, may also be cut, cured, or otherwise prepared to resemble bacon, and may even be referred to as, for example, “turkey bacon”. Such use is common in areas with significant Jewish and Muslim populations as both religions prohibit the consumption of pork. Vegetarian bacons such as “soy bacon” also exist.
There you have it! Now I am dying to read your choices for Top 10. And remember anything goes!
