Supernatural Season 8 Review “Bitten” – Not Enough Sam and Dean

=Supernatural Season 8 Episode 4 Bitten

In this episode of Supernatural, called “Bitten,” the boys stumble across the bloody aftermath of some kind of attack and find themselves part of a college film project.

It sucks when two of my favorite shows deliver episodes that I don’t love in the same week, but such is life. First I was disappointed by last night’s episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, and now I have to that unfortunately I was utterly bored by this episode of Supernatural.

I now finally understand those people who said they hated season 3’s “Ghostfacers.” Personally I loved that episode, but I also adored those characters so I didn’t mind if they were on screen a lot. Besides, Sam and Dean were all over that episode. This one: not so much. I felt like I was watching a completely different show, with characters I didn’t know or like all that much. Sam and Dean showed up here and there, but way too briefly for my liking.

The only thing I found the least bit interesting was watching Sam and Dean through the camera of the kids. Not just because, yay, Sam and Dean were on screen, but because it really did somehow feel different to see them that way. I can’t really explain it, but it was like I was seeing them with new eyes and it felt very intrusive, like we shouldn’t have been seeing those private moments between them. Weird, I know, especially considering all the extremely personal and private moments we’ve seen between them on this show. Like I said, it was weird.

The other thing I really enjoyed about this episode was the use of Milo Greene’s “What’s The Matter” throughout. There’s no doubt that it’s a very unusual song for this show, but I still found it haunting enough to work.

My favorite bits (yes, I did have some despite what I said above)….

“No clue who is painted on the walls.”

“Look, Starsky and Hutch.” – LOL! Wonder who’s who? Sam really has the hair for both of them.

“Is it just me or are you getting a workplace-romance vibe from those two?”- Haha! Boy howdy do the writers love fanning those Wincest fires, don’t they?

Seriously, is anyone ever going to ask how come an FBI agent has such ridiculously long hair? Just sayin.’ LOL.

“Did you eat a human heart?” – That is a question you never want to ask, or be asked, in your life.

I know it was wrong, but I kind of had to laugh at how many times they referred to eating a heart in one scene.

Dean suggesting they put an APB out on Rocky Raccoon.

“Time to hit the books. And feed the monster.”

“You know you’re starting to creep me out, man.”
“The feeling’s mutual, dude.”

Sam giving Dean crap for eating two burgers.

“Comes for the human hearts, stays for the co-eds.”

“I’m pretty sure that FBI guys don’t say ‘awesome’ that much.”

Kate tricking Brian into thinking she was on his side, so that she could kill him.

The final images and message from Kate on the screen, begging Sam and Dean to give her a chance.

Finding it interesting that Dean would give Kate a chance. I wonder if accepting Benny has changed him?

“Sam, do I really say ‘awesome’ a lot?” – Yes you Dean, but you know why? It’s cuz you’re so awesome.

What did you think of this episode of Supernatural? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
