SPN #9x05 Dog Dean Afternoon (episode review)  
Just a few things to say about this one...


So this was supposed to be the funny episode. Maybe my funny bone has been sprained or something, because I didn't find it rip-roaringly funny. Sure, it had its cute moments and there was a scene or two that I did find pretty funny, but I wasn't laughing till I choked.

This was basically Dr. Doolittle, SPN style. It's a matter of personal taste definitely, and I guess I've never been a huge fan of the whole "Look Who's Talking" thing with the talking babies or animals.

The stuff I did find cute and/or funny:

Dean's comments about the vegans and vegan bakery. No offense to anyone here who is vegan, but I have met some who were a lot like that, lol

The dog asking them to change the radio station. I'm with the dog on that one, lol. Never could stand that song. To quote one of my favorite shows Mystery Science Theater 3000: "What happens when you walk into a bar and say you want to hear 'I Want to Know What Love Is' by Foreigner?" "People vomit?" LOL

The pigeon crapping on the Impala and laughing at Dean. And of course Dean getting pissed and calling it a winged rat. LOL

That's about it.

That Monster of the Week guy... How icky, stuffing the cats down his throat and having all those other animal body parts. Though I am seriously glad they didn't show any dogs being killed. Am glad that that guy met his end by getting a taste of his own medicine and having those dogs maul him.

Oh, almost forgot the WEIRDEST part for me... Dean being attracted to the female poodle?? WT-ever-loving-F????

Sam's definitely getting more suspicious after Zeke healing him and Creepy Guy mentioning it. And of course Dean is still being evasive. Hoo boy, not gonna be good when the shit hits the fan....

This wasn't my thing at all. A couple of laughs, but not many. I volunteer at an animal rescue and I'm fostering four kittens right now, so eating the cat DID bother me.

After Dean's little speech about the guy being overpowered by what was inside him, I'm afraid we are going for one more round of "how Sam becomes evil and why Dean feeling bad is more important than how Sam feels," so I'm not encouraged.

Glad I'm not the only one who felt that way. Yeah, the scene with him eating the cat really didn't sit well with me either.

That's a good point. I think we will see more of that coming. *sigh*

I must admit I laughed through the whole thing. Their faces! I rewatched the belly-rubbing moment a few times already. Can't wait for the Puppy!Sam picspam for this one.

I do agree they had some very good facial expressions there :) Sam looked so painfully awkward with the belly-rubbing. And I liked his expressions when Dean was yelling at the pigeon, LOL

I do think I'm getting some good ideas for the picspam!

Haven't see it yet but my hopes weren't very high for it anyway and going by your review I didn't miss much. Just please let this be the end of the fan-service episodes for a bit.

Yeah, mine weren't either. There were some cute/funny moments but it wasn't like any of their earlier funny episodes like Tall Tales or BDABR or anything like that.

Jensen said this episode was going to be funny....sorry Jensen but it wasn't. =/

Just saw the promo for the next episode and really getting fed up with this. After 3 filler episodes in a row, we get ANOTHER Castiel heavy ep. Oh look he spilled slushy all over the floor so funny!! >.>;;

And of course Sam stay's behind and Dean leaves to help Castiel with a case. Yep roll on next week....

I'm not a Cas fan so this being a Cas episode doesn't make me happy, especially since it looks like we are getting Cas the "angel who needs to ride the short bus" version. Honestly, Cas observed humans for thousands of years, he started becoming a human in season 5 and worked with Sam and Dean so he saw some of how the world worked. He lost his memory and lived a completely human (off screen) in season seven and NOW he can't figure out to operate a Slurpy Machine, even after (I'm sure) his boss showed him how. Hael figured out how to drive a car when she hadn't been to or looked at earth since she built the Grand Canyon. If we have to have Cas, can't he at least be of normal intelligence. I'm not even asking for smart at this point.

Which brings me to this And of course Sam stay's behind and Dean leaves to help Castiel with a case.

Ever since season seven Sam has shown concern for Cas, often more concern than Dean has. He called for Cas in 7.01. He was trying to find a way to track angels so Cas could stay safe just last episode. But only DEAN gets to interact with Sam. I know Misha loves to blame this on Jared teasing him too much, but Jared manages to act with every other person who appears on the show. Can't they just tell both Jared and Misha to do their jobs (actually I think Jared probably does do his job, Misha is the one who is having issues) and let Sam and Cas actually talk to each other? If I have to have Cas, I want him to be more than Dean's special friend while Sam gets dumped.

100% Agree and how the hell did the fucking idiot get the job in the 1st place?! He can't brush his teeth but he can get a job? Whatever!!

Sam is always defending Castiel (Sam is such a sweet forgiving guy. <3) but like you said Sam and Castiel hardly ever even talk to each other. Which for me, makes it very hard to get why Sam cares for Castiel so much. "I would die for Castiel in a second." REALLY Sam?!

Yep one of the many reason's I don't care for Castiel anymore is that when he's around Sam turns into wallpaper in his own show and it becomes the Dean and Castiel show. If the writers actual took the time to show Castiel/Sam's friendship instead of having stupid Dean/Castiel fanservice (which that's been honest just gives the crazy Destiel shippers ideas.) moments I wouldn't dread seeing Castiel show up as much.

Yes that whole Misha and Jared can't work together thing is bull. Jared and Jensen pull jokes on everyone so why is only Misha effect and only by Jared?!
