Supernatural S06
Supernatural S06E14: “Mannequin 3: The Reckoning”

I thought the last episode was pretty bad, but this takes the cake. Easily the worst Supernatural episode to date, and it nearly made me reconsider watching this show. The montage with Lisa and Ben, followed by the Real Doll... This makes the racist truck look like The Shining.

Rating  

A vengeful spirit possesses Netflix and nearly kills my interest in this show.

Last episode, Sam was having seizures reliving his year spent being tortured by Lucifer in Hell. This episode, he’s back to normal and looks perfectly adjusted. If you think they’re doing this because there’s too much exciting ground to cover in this episode, you’re about to be proven tragically wrong.

Sam and Dean wear suits, walk around with their EMF detector, and interrogate people. We’ve seen it a thousand times before, but never in such a boring, lifeless context. Which might explain why Dean leaves his brother alone to run to Ben when he pulls a stupid stunt over the phone.

Lisa is seeing a doctor. Ben misses Dean. Holy shit, are we trapped in an alternate Trickster reality where Supernatural is a shitty daytime soap opera? Meanwhile, Sam Winchester, who had a Hell seizure a few hours ago, is left dealing with a killer ghost on his own.

Of all the people we’ve seen haunted by vengeful ghosts on this show, these guys might be the biggest scumbags of the bunch. I say let the ghost kill them all, and come back to torch the bones when she’s done.

Alright, now I’m downright embarrassed to call myself a fan of this show. Better unlike the Supernatural Facebook page before someone notices.

That… That Real Doll… Oh my Chuck. You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. This is horrible, horrible television. I’ve been wasting my life watching this. I could be taking knitting lessons right now.
