Supernatural Season 4 Review, Part 1

Lazarus Rising
I haven't seen the last 4 eps of season 3, but this I know: Dean went to hell. And in the first 15 seconds of this ep, he's back and crawls out of his grave. Why do people who are buried alive always have lighters? Dean looks up Bobby who in a truly hilarious moment, throws holy water in Dean's face. Then Dean and Bobby look up Sam. Dean's little brother isn't warmly welcoming, seems Sam is using his demon powers and hanging out with Ruby who has a new meatsuit. After a séance to learn what dragged Dean back from hell goes horribly wrong. Dean meets Castiel, who is an angel. Castiel shows Dean his wings. This was okay but Ruby can't act, Castiel is smug and Pamela's fate was nasty.

Are You There, God? It's Me, Dean Winchester
I don't like the new opening credits. Sam, Bobby and Dean are menaced by the ghosts of Meg, Henriksen and creepy twins. They hide out in Bobby's anti-ghost panic room to figure out how to banish the unquiet ghosts. Castiel shows up to smugly reveal that the apocalypse is nigh. The ghosts were the result of one of 66 seals being broken by Lilith. If all 66 are broken, then Lucifer will walk free.

This was okish. Meg points out to Sam that Ruby's possessing an innocent woman, Sam doesn't care.

Best Lines:
"This is what I looked like before that demon cut my hair off and dressed me like a slut."

"I thought angels were supposed to be guardians. Fluffy wings, halos, you know - Michael Landon."

"Why do you think we're here walking among you now for the first time in 2000 years?"

In the Beginning
Sam's sneaking off to meet Ruby so he misses the big plot. Castiel sends Dean back to 1973 to meet his parents. Yong John is a prat with bad hair and young Mary is a whiner with worse hair. Dean gets his father to buy the Impala instead of a van and meets Mary's parents who are called Samuel and Deanna.

Samuel's a jerk, Deanna's a doormat and Mary whines and guess what? They're all hunters. Mary hates hunting and does not want her kids to be hunters. Then the yellow eyed demon shows up to decimate Mary's family and the reason why Mary died in the nursery fire is revealed.

This was dull and John's whole mad eyed revenge quest is shown as even more useless and self-defeating.

Best Line: "I'm going to hell, again."

Dean discovers Sam's hobby of hanging out with Ruby and sending demons back to hell using only his demon mind powers. Ruby's insufferably smug. Then the duo head off to suburbia where a man is getting an appetite and a temper because he's turning into a monster. The monster's pregnant wife runs off, the monster tries to eat Dean and so Sam kills him.

This was dull, season 4 isn't exactly filling me with hope.
