Supernatural 7×05 – Shut Up, Dr. Phil


I am sad to say that I was disappointed by this hour. A lot of hoopla was made that this episode would be guest-starring Buffy alumnus Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters so imagine my sadness when Charisma didn’t even show up until halfway through the episode. Moreover, it pains me to say that but I really didn’t enjoy her acting in this. I felt she was woefully miscast. The weird thing is I’ve read quite a few reviews for this episode and people really seem to have enjoyed it. Really? I find that hard to believe. Even the comedic tone that this show strikes so well when it wants to fell flat in my opinion. Nevertheless, I did enjoy the final confrontation with the Winchesters acting as marriage counselors and I’m going to bump up the episode’s rating just for the fact that it features two amazing BufferVerse talents. Still I wanted something awesome, and this episode heartbreakingly didn’t deliver. Maybe on re-watch it will improve.
