Episode 710 - Adventures In Babysitting
Aired January 6th, 2012
returns from hiatus in hopefully better shape than when it left. This season, it seems like we have two or three blah episodes for every one really good one, or maybe one good plot mixed up with a bad plot in an episode. This episode was one of the latter.
Part of me would really like to a hunter version of Hit Girl and Big Daddy (a Kick Ass
reference, if you don’t recognize it). Some psychotically well trained little girl who can rip through demons like a tornado of razor blades, and a father so gripped with the idea of vengeance that he has no idea what he’s actually doing to his daughter. (By the way, that was the best part of Kick Ass the movie- I kind of wished we followed their story all the way through, not that jerky kid’s, but I’m seriously digressing). I think Supernatural kind of hinted at that here, but in a hedging their bet way that diluted it until all we had was a mostly absent father and a generally well trained but kind of snotty young teen. How ironic - in a story of fanged hot girls, they defanged a premise.
