Supernatural takes a page out of Seinfeld, and adds a mystery. Who exhibited more dog-like behavior, Michael Richards or Jensen Ackles? Both were pretty hilarious, although Kramer did lose the ability to speak “humaneze.” Dean “barking” at the postman reminds me of a comic I once saw (in the New Yorker, I believe). The hypothesis was “If dogs could talk,” and consisted of a dog-filled community, with the dogs all yelling “Hey!” at each other. Ha!
So it wasn’t Supernatural‘s best episode ever. Dean got to play fetch, talk to the animals, free the hounds from the pound, and stick his head out the window. (Oh c’mon, admit it, you’ve always wanted to do that!) And Sam got to drive the Impala while his canine-loving alter-ego got to rub a dog’s belly. (One of the things I look for when adopting an animal is its ability to enjoy belly rubs.) Speaking of adopting, I’d take you home a nano-second, you beautiful 14-year-old collie.
Wait! Your saying there was a supernatural killer on the loose the boys had to track down and neutralize? Oh please, don’t ruin my happy-buzz. Besides, the creature turned out to be a human, and those are some of my least favorite episodes. (*cough*TheBenders*cough*) And in our continuing story, Zeke appeared long enough to heal Sam’s sliced cardioid artery before disappearing again. So there’s that pesky problem we’re still dealing with.
