Supernatural S08E15: “Man’s Best Friend With Benefits”

In the future, when I tell my friends that I like this show, this is the episode I'll pray they haven't seen.

The title perfectly describes this episode, and it’s even worse than it sounds.

Oh, swell, another episode with a shapeshifting dog, because things went so well the last time around. To make matters much, much worse, the black Doberman transforms into a sexy Black woman who keeps wearing the dog collar and talks about her master. This is too embarrassing for words; I think I’d rather get caught watching porn.

Why are Sam and Dean helping a witch? Friend or not, there used to be a time, not too long ago, when Dean would never ally himself with a monster. Heck, Sam killed his werewolf girlfriend for a single kill, yet this guy gets a pass.

Goodness gracious, Portia’s acting is as wooden as they come. She emotes her lines with the conviction of a houseplant. At least the dog actor is decent.

Portia climbs in bed with her master, and she… Wait, are they making out? IS THIS GUY HAVING SEX WITH HIS SHAPESHIFTING DOG FAMILIAR? WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? SUPERNATURAL, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?!

Yep, we’re now chuckling at bestiality jokes. I hate my life.

[do action=”moment” emo=”Cheesy” title=”‘*cough*I’m good*cough*'”/]

Sam delivers the least convincing ‘I’m good’ in the history of forever. We’ve been down this road so many times, it’s hard to feel even a bit of excitement over Sam lying again about having things under control. Ah well, at least the dog sex episode is over.
