That's more like it!
16 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the show back to it's best, gory and thus more engaging than a blood splatter cut, which is almost as effective as throwing paint at a wall whenever a guy is punched. Here though there are good effects, which used to be what the show thrived on - I remember watching the SFX reels on the dvds - like the ghost ship, and the relationship between the two is more realistic, and also manages to balance the humour very well.

With all the underwhelming Leviathan stuff, and the increasingly annoying touchy-feely stuff which defies character style - Bobby in particular, which I can't help feeling is the responsibility of a misunderstanding, and probably female writer who doesn't hold the atmosphere in as much of a high-regard as the more classic episodes.

They needed the Leviathans to be genuine monsters, with massive presence, instead they are the typical personality bad guys, which is really disappointing - even the Egyptian Osiris god, was like a soap show villain. Leviathans as a concept should have been walking hannibal lectors, and although the head morphing is good in theory, it's not very appealing to see 1 second of a weird head and typical blood splatter. Their shifted form should be more close to ouroboros tentacle stuff in resident evil, or the very ambitious mayor-snake from Buffy.

This is Supernatural, not frackin gossip girl.
