Supernatural ep 618
I haven't had this much trouble watching an ep... ever.

oh the video quality is great and the download went without a problem, nothing wrong there.

I even have the time, and Dru isn't giving me any trouble either...

So why do I have such an issue with it.


Every time I try to watch it, every other scene, Dean is making himself look like an idiot and I got to stop watching. Because I can't stand it. I utterly despise it when a character I like is made to look like an idiot and it's even worse when it is because of the characters own actions.

I don't like Changing Channels, I didn't like the French Mistake and I can't even bare to watch Frontierland. Embarrassment squicks are like that.

Why is it that American shows have such a love for having characters make fools of themselves? Personally I much prefer the occasional joke here or there over farce....

Maybe tomorrow I'll actually be able to watch for more than two minutes at a time, but for now, I'm giving up...

I'm with you on Changing Channels and The French Mistake, but I quite liked this one. I don't think it was anywhere near as extreme.

I agree with you about the other two episodes, but I saw the whole thing as being the playful, little-boy-ish, movie fangeek Dean wading in with both feet - that we were laughing along with him, instead of at him. So I really loved the episode. I'm sorry it hit the wrong notes for you.

*looks around, nervous*

Have to agree with the previous comments on this one... I wasn't crazy about Changing Channels and I didn't care for The French Mistake either, but I did like this one. I thought Dean was like a geeky kid in a candy store. Haven't seen that in quite a while, so it kind of reminded me of the old days just a little. I especially enjoyed his banter with Sam - but then again I always enjoy that sort of thing, so...

I think this one was purposely lighthearted because we're probably going to get an angst overload in the remaining episodes this season.

I have the same problem. I did make it through, though, thanks to the mute button, the ability to listen and go look at something else, and the ability to skip ahead a few seconds on the progress bar.

It still took me an hour and a half to watch it because I kept pausing it to go "Arrrghh" and look at other stuff until I was over it.

*sigh*

It's not a bad ep, I don't think. Just...hard to watch.

While I did enjoy this episode, it was more because it was a good Sam episode. I didn't have quite the same reaction as you to Dean, but I did note to myself that I didn't love watching Dean look like the wussiest person in the room the whole time. I did like watching him with the nerdy Star Trek references though.
