A serious Ghostfacers episode? Nooooooooooooooo!
Okay, I'm bummed, but not as bummed as that made me sound. Because of course, the writers chose to use Ed and Harry, supernatural partners extraordinaire, to illustrate what was going on with Dean and Sam.
Ed and Harry have been together for a long time and have stuck together through thick and thinman. Lies were what tore them apart, and who does that remind you of? Of course, what Dean did was to save Sam's life, while Ed caused several deaths in the pursuit of fame, but the end result was the same. Harry nearly died because of what Ed did, and Sam didn't die because of what Dean did. Wait a minute. Maybe there is a significant bit of difference here.
For awhile I was thinking that Ed and Harry were nowhere near as scaredy-cat as they used to be, and the episode would end with the two of them actually becoming hunters. But no. At least Harry didn't die, and for a few moments, I thought he would. Ed was seriously ready to step back and throw the case to the Winchesters, which was a smart thing to do. Oh, well. It makes me sad that the Ghostfacers are no more.
It seemed like the Thinman was going to turn out to be like the internet-created evil thing in season one's "Hell House" -- but no. It was a couple of very nasty human beings, not monsters. That didn't stop Dean for a second. It actually creeped me out, watching Dean slowly and deliberately stabbing one of the bad guys. Guess Dean doesn't feel the least bit of reluctance when it comes to human monsters, either.
The Dean/Sam coldness briefly warmed up a little. I loved the story of Sam as Batman jumping off the shed, and Dean as Superman taking him to the hospital on his handlebars. Sam was reminiscing and having a good time with it.
And then he turned himself off like a faucet. Come on, Sam. Get over it.
-- All the talk about selfies lately, and the opener was a haunted selfie. Before the blood, of course.
-- This week: Springdale, Washington. The guys had a motel room with brown decor and an extremely tacky lumberjack motif.
-- We're getting another break, but it's only for a week. The next episode is March 18.
Harry: "Fifty shades of way too much protein."
Harry: "The lore says Thinman hangs out by trees, and the woods is where trees hang out."
Harry: "Quit raining on my rainbow."
Ed: "Rainbows can't happen without rain."
Harry: "Don't try to use science with me."
Dean: "This all sounds like bad times at Bitchmont High."
Sam: "Trust me here. Secrets ruin relationships."
Harry: "You crashed the Jenga tower of our lives."
Sam: "So this thing teleported, but it has a job and a car?"
Dean: "So you're thinman, huh? That would make sense if it didn't look like you just ate a fat camp."
Ed: "I know you're not Thinman. You're just a me-me."
Harry: "Ed, it's pronounced 'meme'."
Ed: "It's spelled 'me me', though."
Harry: "The second e is silent."
Another good one. Three out of four Jenga towers,
