Supernatural Season 5 Ep 8 Review

Changing Channels

The Trickster throws the brothers into TV land in a rip off of a John Ritter movie. There are cheesy opening credits, an unfunny sitcom and an accurate pastiche of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ when the brothers end up in ‘Dr Sexy, MD’. After lots of face pulling they turn up on the fake Japanese game show ‘Nutcracker’.

I kept watching awaiting humour. There was the health ad, the ‘CSI: Miami’ spoof with duelling David Caruso impersonation. All I will say is, people actually watch ‘CSI: Miami’ unlike certain shows I could name. Then the brothers experience a new take on ‘Knight Rider’ with Sam as KITT.

Vastly unamused (much like the viewer) the brothers confront the annoying Trickster who turns out to the Archangel Gabriel. The brothers trap him with holy oil and there is yelling, bad acting and terrible dialogue. Then they let the Trickster/Gabriel go instead of hitting him in the face. This was dull.

Best Lines:
“The Trickster does not like pretty boy angels.”

“What did daddy say when you ran off to join the pagans?”
