Thoughts on Supernatural(The TV show)

Now, to get those of you who have seen all the seasons on the same page as me, I just watched the Trickster episode in Season 3.

That being said, I have to say the last few episodes have been absolutely phenomenal.  I think my favorite so far is the episode with the dreamroot or whatever.  I really liked having a *real* glimpse into the depths of Dean Winchester, and I as a “reader” of the TV show really appreciated that the writers faced up to the “cardboardness” of the character, and really tested him and broke through to him.  The depth of character and insight into the character’s mind rivals that of any books I have ever read, with the exception (in my opinion, of equal value) of Sara King’s novels.

To go from such a strong, stark contrast in personality and character exploration with Dean in the previous episodes leading up to the Trickster one, combined with what was done with the Trickster (please try not to spoil, I don’t like unpleasant surprises) was some of the best work I have ever seen.

I find myself hoping Bela is redeemed, though I’m not sure she will be.

I’m just very, very happy as a viewer right now. I’m going to watch more tomorrow, I really needed that.  I’m sure everything is going to go to shit soon.
