Some angst, some lolz, some clever moments
--The whole X-Files parody was fairly awesome. Well done, SPN cast and crew. :)
I'm particularly entertained because Castle also did an XF-riffing episode this week.
--I'm not sure I've ever seen a story just flat-out say that the UFO stuff makes total sense as a modern explanation for fairie activity. I really like this as a theory and would totally read a novel based on it.
--Sam needs to get his soul back soon. I can see Jared's having a great time with the role right now, and the writers are really selling Sam's soullessness, but I want Sam back.
p.s. Sam totally doesn't want his soul back, does he? He doesn't want to suffer all the time. I wish Dean's response to that had been, "Don't you remember how much more awesome you could feel with a soul? It's not just the suffering; it's everything else."
Sorry there isn't more to this review; I got food poisoning last night and am still somewhat under the weather.
Oh, honey. Feel better soon.
Good ep. Interesting case, new and different MotW, delightful guest stars. Some parts felt awkwardly like fan pandering, but maybe that's just me.
Also, the mention of goblins and the snatching of
elder siblings first borns reminded me of something . . . hm . . . . :-)

LOL, yes, I wasn't really in vision!Dean mode, but... Heh. Someone's got our phones wiretapped. *facepalm*
The only bit I thought was really fan-pandering was the "service Oberon" line. (And it probably should have been Titania, because the young boys were usually abducted for *her* court, iirc, and were often the reason for jealous feuds between her and her husband. /lore nerdity)
That's exactly the part and line that I mean. And I approve of your nerdity.
Hey, if we don't get to touch base before Thursday, have a Happy Thanksgiving. :-)

Nerds unite! :)
Happy Thanksgiving, my dear--may it be a blessed one for you and yours.
Sam was all "So you're saying suffering is good?" and I replied "Actually...yeah." Though yeah, as you point out, suffering isn't the only thing he's missing out on. Am so missing Sam's soul.

See, I don't buy that suffering, in and of itself, is *ever* a good thing. Good can come out of it, most definitely, and in a world as messed-up as ours it often indicates...er... soul-having. Hence my reaction: Dean's right, it kind of is the only game in town, but dammit, Dean, you're not selling this well, and you forgot the other part of the awesomeness of having a soul.
I miss Sam. :( I want to read old Sam-fic and remind myself of him.
