SPN: Cracktastic Spoiler Alerts  

As you may or may not have heard, a late winter episode will obliterate the fourth wall by transporting Sam and Dean to an alt-uni where they are actors named Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki starring in a cult TV show called Supernatural. Wait, it gets wink-winkier: In this other dimension, Sam/Jared has a wife — and it’s none other than Padalecki’s real-life bride (and former ‘Supe costar) Genevieve Cortese!



LOL YEAH I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

We've known of the meta-filled episode for some time now, so that isn't very new or shocking. Just more cracked out every time I read about it, lol. Hopefully it'll be good and not painfully bad with second-hand embarrassment. Quite frankly I'm surprised that Genevieve is even going to be involved with Supernatural again, what with the backlash fandom had against her. Most fans would be foaming at the mouth wanting to throw anything at this girl because of her being back, regardless if it's as the character or herself. Not that I really care though, I bet she's only gonna appear on the screen for like two seconds and then disappear while other crazy shenanigans are happening.

WHATEVER. AS LONG AS WE GET MISHA PLAYING HIMSELF! OR MISHA PLAYING CASTIEL TRYING TO PLAY HIMSELF. THAT WOULD BE LOLARIOUS TO THE MAX! XD XD XD


Hide yo' virgins! A dragon (we're talking a dragon with ginormous wings) is breaking into people's houses and snatching up local girls wearing purity rings. For those who are interested in the cool monster factor of demon-hunting, this will be the episode for you. If you just want to see Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) working together and everything returning to sunshine and puppy dogs…maybe not the episode for you.

....

DRAGON WITH GINORMOUS WINGS.

DRAGON WITH GINORMOUS WINGS

DRAGON WITH GINORMOUS WINGS

....



TELL ME THIS MOTHERFUCKING DRAGON IS GONNA SPIT FIRE OR THAT DEAN IS GONNA HAVE TO GO INTO SOME TRI-WIZARD TOURNAMENT TO DEFEAT IT OR SOMETHING. LOL

In seriousness though, I'm not entirely sure I believe the description, unless they are completely abusing the special effects team just for dragon effects. I mean come on, we didn't get to have an epic angelical battle in the fifth season finale, why would they be wasting their monies on something like CGI dragons for some cracked out MOTW episode? Either it's not what we think it is or they'll half-ass it somewhat via filming tricks, idk. I mean, dragons are cool. I love dragons. I just don't know if this show can do them justice. I think I would leave that up to the anime, to be honest. Whatever though, I just have one thing to say:

I WANT THERE TO BE MOTHERFUCKING EPIC ANGEL WINGS ON THIS SHOW AGAIN, DAMMIT! EITHER THE SHADOWS OR ACTUALLY SHOWING THEM IN THEIR ENTIRETY. IF YOU'RE GONNA SHOW US DRAGON WINGS AS THE DESCRIPTION IS IMPLYING YOU BETTER SHOW US SOME ANGEL WINGS SOON, FOR REALS NOW. JUST SAYING.

Otherwise the episode description? Dragons snatching up virgins? IDEK ANYMORE WITH THIS SHOW.


Did anyone else hear the news that Dawn Ostroff is leaving the CW forever? About freaking time! Hallelujah! \O/

That woman is responsible for canceling some of the best programs the network has ever had, mostly because she never understood them or tried to alter them but once those alterations didn't pass she killed them off or whatever, making headway for the melodramatic bullshit that now plagues the network. Good riddance, I say. Hopefully the next president will actually have understanding and respect for the programs and their creators and won't belittle the intelligence of the fanbases of said shows.

LMAO WTH @ ALL OF THIS.

That fourth wall ep will be embarrassing as fuck, I can already tell.
Renée: Misha Collins. IDEK.rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 11:19 am (UTC)
Either it'll be cracky and hilarious or we'll be facepalming with WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS I CAN'T EVEN. Or possibly a combination of both, since this is Supernatural it's the one show you can count on to make you laugh and cringe in embarrassment at the same time.
just a small town girl: [supernatural] pensivecarameltrap on January 5th, 2011 11:01 am (UTC)
UHHHHHH. IDEK for the first. It's going to be painfully embarrassing or crackalicious.

As for the second one, can the dragon spit acid, too? I've been reading too much of the Temeraire series at the moment where it's got glorious dragons, including a breed name Winchester. :D

Renée: Castiel. Adorkable.rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 11:16 am (UTC)
Yeah, the meta-episode will definitely borderline hilarious crack and second-hand embarrassment for sure. It will all depend on how it's done and who has written the episode, because quite frankly only a few writers can pull this off with flying colors without fucking shit up as this season has done multiple times already. I'm kind of hoping it'll turn into a "Changing Channels"-like episode, where it starts off lulzy and turns into srs bsns. But we'll see.

DRAGON SPITTING ACID. THAT WOULD BE UBER COOL, EVEN COOLER THAN SOME OF THE LAMER MOTW THIS SHOW HAS BEEN HAVING. JUST SAYING.

I honestly don't know what the sixth season is even doing any more, I really don't.

Though I love that the James Van Der Beek gifs are absolutely everywhere today.
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 11:55 am (UTC)
I'd like to think, aside from a few good aspects, that the sixth season is a huge joke. The show itself seems to have been downgraded into something I'm not even sure what anymore. I keep hoping that they'll pull their shit together but then, descriptions like these happen. And I just go "oh", and turn the other direction. :/

THE JAMES VAN DER MEME GIFS ARE JUST MAGICAL! I TELL YOU, MAGICAL!

The fourth wall ep is giving me so much secondhand embarrassment already... :\ And usually the breaking of the fourth wall DOESN'T do that to me when it has to do with Supernatural... BUT! I would so like to see Misha either playing himself, Castiel, or both! MAYBE MISHA COULD FINALLY GET THE CHANCE TO FUCK HIMSELF!

DEAN IS GONNA HAVE TO GO INTO SOME TRI-WIZARD TOURNAMENT TO DEFEAT IT OR SOMETHING.

YES!

I would doubt we'd actually see the dragon tho... or that it even IS a dragon. I MAINLY JUST WANT IT TO SNATCH UP CASTIEL AND FOR DEAN TO HAVE TO BE HIS KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR.
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 01:16 pm (UTC)
In all honesty I would feel more comfortable with the concept of the episode had I had more faith in the writers, and more faith in this season as a whole really. I wouldn't mind having some kind of meta-cracked out episode hadn't there been already one too many of them on this show.

BUT MISHA PLAYING HIMSELF AND/OR BEING CASTIEL BEING MISHA WOULD BE ALL WORTH IT. AND YES! MISHA/CASTIEL PAIRING IS FOR THE WIN! XD LOL OH MAN THAT WOULD BE SO CRACKALICIOUS UP THE WAZOO.

Yeah, I'm doubting they're willing to show us anything remotely awesome like the dragons I'm envisioning. I'm pretty sure they'll fake us out like the lameness they did with the werewolf nonsense they tried to pull in the horrible episode, "Heart". *rolls eyes*

Does that mean Sam will be freaking out that "Ruby" is alive again?

Dammit, I just want confirmation that Misha will be in this ep! How can they do this sort of crack without him?
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 01:18 pm (UTC)
I hope so. XD Everyone is hoping that Sam tries to kill her again, thus freaking everyone out. Heh.

I WANT CONFIRMATION TOO! WE NEED TO KNOW DAMMIT. HE HAS TO BE. Because seriously, that priest!Misha photo? That sounds oddly something to do with this, if not an independent project on the side. I mean the more this meta-episode sounds, the more likely this would be. ;)

Wow! When someone mentioned Supernatural was going to have dragons this season, I thought they were joking. But than as more time goes by Supernatural just seems to be becoming more and more of a really unfunny joke/bad-fic. Even when the show tries to be serious, it still comes off as bad crack fic most of the time, because Sera has changed a lot of little things about the characters (in Dean's case, BIG things) and the world.

'Hopefully the next president will actually have understanding and respect for the programs and their creators and won't belittle the intelligence of the fanbases of said shows.'
Here's hoping. I just hope we get someone who doesn't think that melodramatic sop is the be all end all of tv.

Quick question, what are your thoughts on the new president canceling Supernatural next season or even this season?

Yeah, it's really an unfortunate thing to happen to the show. Why was Sera Gamble assigned to take over again? What is there that she's proven to know the material and stay true to it? You're right, even when they attempt to be taken seriously things just seem incredibly off because of all those changes and it's like, seriously Gamble? Seriously Kripke? -__-

Badfic tropes should not be featured in our shows, no matter how "clever" they think they're being. Leave what you're stealing from fandom to fandom only, ffs.

Relieved, quite frankly. I wanted the show to end last season. However, I wouldn't want to show to end on a horrible note as I feel this season is going to, if anything it needs to go out with a bang like they'd originally intended before shit got all screwed up. If anything it could end up being like how BTVS had gone out, like with the sixth season being so horribly bad but the seventh season ended up wrapping everything up with the biggest of baddies they've encountered. If the rumors are true that the show is gonna get a seventh season, I would rather them doing something like they should have done with in the first place with the fifth season: go out with an apocalyptic bang.

The fourth wall episode is either going to be the most hilarious hour in the whole history of television, or I'm going to spend it banging my head against the next wall/throwing everything within reach at my tv.

I just really, really hope we're going to see Misha playing Castiel trying to play Misha. I have no doubt that this alone will be worth whatever else they're planning on throwing at us in this episode.

Could this show get anymore AU on crack? That AU episode that's coming up is like WUT lol.

LMAO DRAGONS! Maybe we won't actually see the dragon, but it's shadow. And then it'll turn out to be something else? I love cracky episodes, but I hope it somehow ties into something else because they need to get back on the civil war in Heaven instead of having more cracky episodes.
Renée: Castiel. I'm almost out of minutes!rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
We know the show doesn't have the budget to do full-on dragons, not even close, unless that's what they're wasting half their money on. I'm pretty sure they might half-ass the entire effect anyway, or it's not what it appears to be. Perhaps it could be something in relation to the strange supernatural creatures now appearing elsewhere that's been occurring throughout the season? I don't know.

I seriously hope we get into the civil war in Heaven soon immediately after, though. They did say it'll be more heavily featured this half of the season. *crosses fingers*

Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 10:34 pm (UTC)
I wish there was that middle ground again, like how they used to have been during the earlier seasons where it would be more lighthearted than just outright crack, you know? Something to loosen the tension without them going full-out crazy with some of the shenanigans. And even when they try to take themselves seriously these days it comes out almost unbearable to watch because of how certain things are being handled, writing and direction wise specifically.

The episode hasn't aired yet and I'm already suffering massive amounts of secondhand embarrassment for everyone involved. Adding Gen in as herself is just crossing a line I don't want crossed. It's hard enough avoiding the segment of fandom that takes stalking and tinhattery to all new levels. This just fuels their fire.

I saw an article that pointed out that SPN and the Vampire Diaries are two of the CW's most successful shows, and maybe it would benefit the network to go in that direction more. I certainly hope so.

As to what Supernatural's doing, though... *pinches bridge of nose* good lord. At least I'll have some eyecandy?
Renée: SPN. Castiel.rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 10:55 pm (UTC)
The eyecandy doesn't necessarily work for me when they continue to butcher the characterizations of my favorite characters, you know? Or make things not make sense in the continuity of things. It's like, I could enjoy just for the pretty but I came into this show for the meta of the mythology and mysteries. I'd rather not water things down just to look at pretty faces.
inkstaind_dream: threesomeinkstaind_dream on January 6th, 2011 04:31 am (UTC)
I could kiss you for tipping me off on these episodes cause I haven't watched much of Supernatural in a while, and I had no idea what was going on in the show. What you've posted though has given me hope, so I will definitely be tuning in to catch these episodes *hugs* Thank you, friend.
Renée: Castiel + Cell phone = OTP.rogueslayer452 on January 6th, 2011 06:18 am (UTC)
Well, "hope" isn't really the term I would use when reading the descriptions of these episodes. Unbelievable crackity crack and utter wtfery maybe. But I'm mostly interested in the exciting parts of the Heaven and Purgatory storylines of the plot this season.

But you're welcome anyway, sweetie. At least I made someone hopeful for something. :)
