DittyDotDot July 27, 2014 Share July 27, 2014 (edited) Sam and Dean get cranky with each other as the try to work out what is going on with alien abductions, giant alligators and deaths in a college town. ________________________________________ This is just a delightful little episode. I absolutely adore it. Yes, the POV is all screwed up at times, but I simply don't care. I laugh at each brother's different perceptions of the other; I laugh at Bobby thinking they're idjits; I laugh at the wrestling; I laugh at the Trickster; but most of all I laugh at the slow-dancing alien stuff. That's just pure gold, IMO. I don't think I will ever get tired of seeing Jared say "Dean, this is a very serious investigation and we don't have time for any of your, blah, blah, blah, blah...blah, blah, blah, blah...BLAH" it's just too funny. And Dean not knowing that girl's name, but insisting that she was a classy chic. I also love that Dean was keeping Sam's money for "emotional trauma." And Bobby at the end "you guys are breakin' my heart." The Texas chainsaw massacre guy, the "ladies" beating the crap out of Dean...There's just so much good stuff here. Okay, enough with the giggling...I was so enamored with the Trickster back in the day and still find the idea of him fascinating--kudos to Richard Speight Jr. for making him such a lively character with so little screen time to do so. I think what this episode does best is bring us back to that idea of urban legends and what makes them legends is people telling the stories. And it was a stroke of genius to incorporate the Weekly World News. I had never read the publication before I watched this episode--it's not generally my thing--but now it makes me kinda sad that it no longer exists. I think I could watch this episode on a loop and never get tired of it. Whacky sidenote: For some reason Dean's hair seems really short to me here. And this isn't even important, but I noticed that the blackboard in that lecture hall has the alphabet written across the top--is this an elementary school college? Like I said not even important, but it's the first time I noticed it. Edited July 27, 2014 by DittyDotDot 5 Link to comment
