The end of mirrors, parallels and the decision to not tell a straight story.
I wanted to just post that title but I just really need to say this. SPN needs to stop with all these gimmicks and start telling a straight story again. When Kripke would use MOTW episodes to mirror the boys’ situation it was never as a detriment to the show, it was a layering or an enhancing of the main plot point. It would enrich the story and drive the story further.
That isn’t what Carver does when he and his crew employ these tactics. He uses them as ball peen hammers on us weekly, not for driving the story further but driving the story into the ground with little to no growth.
What is this guy’s damage with just telling a straight story, why is everything half done, why is so much attention being focused on something else, simply to use it as a mirror for Dean’s situation…. How about just dealing with Dean situation, how about moving that along.
Supernatural is a show that never should have become a slave to gimmicks, to me it was gimmick proof because of what they could do, and how they could retread themes with completely different outcomes.
I am just frustrated with Carvers way of telling a story, and I am tired of episodes feeling the same, sorry for the rant, I just had to get this out.
