How well does the supernatural beast know Sam's hair?
5 things to see today – July 11, 2017
There are times when it feels like a definite possibility Supernatural will outlive us all. This feeling only intensifies when the CW series, now in its thirteenth season, releases creatively ambitious and entertaining episodes such as the "Scoobynatural" by Thursday, an animated crossover featuring the popular children's show.
In the delightful hour of Jim War and Jeremy Adams, Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) find themselves caught in an episode of Scooby-Doo the Dean , a Scooby superfan (of course), has seen many times. But things start to fail very quickly and Team Free Will soon finds itself forced to hunt down a very real and dangerous ghost while protecting Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby from experiencing the frightening truth that monsters are not just dodgy real estate developers are in masks. The episode becomes an instant classic by combining episodes like "Changing Channels" and "The French Mistake" on fans' must-watch lists, and that's because the show once again jumped outside the box to break the boundaries of genres less fun.

Episodes like "Scoobynatural" occur sporadically, maybe once a season, if we are lucky, but they break the repetition that inevitably happens when a series quickly sets itself to 300 episodes. And for a show that only had two leads since its 2005 premiere (Castiel), it has done a respectable job finding new and interesting ways to evolve while still beating the same beats every season. As Sam said to Velma this week, you saved the world … a lot. But one of the reasons the show has been able to survive all these years is that it has been able to successfully balance the now familiar life and death, the rescue of the world with humor and wild creativity. After all, Supernatural his greatest strength was always the willingness to laugh at himself.

" Scoobynatural "is just the latest episode of a decent series of ambitious, but risky Supernatural episodes It's also crucial evidence that the show is not just running on fumes while their stars are collecting paychecks. The Hour is not something that can be reproduced every other week or even every season – the animated episode was a year in making – but it reinforces the idea that the possibilities of Supernatural could actually be endless ,
In the episode "Changing Channels" in the fifth season, Sam and Dean were pushed into a number of different TV genres, and Season 6's "The French Mistake" took them to a world where there was no magic and Supernatural was a TV show in which Sam and Dean were played by actors named Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. Like these episodes, "Scoobynatural" is a rare treasure buried beneath mountains of man-pain and persistent parenting problems. It combines "Mystery Spot", "Ghostfacers", "The Real Ghostbusters", "Fan Fiction" and "Baby" to the most imaginative episodes in the series. And it's this ambitious streak that keeps the show from getting lost in its own doomsday mood. It's episodes like these that remind us that Supernatural is still a pleasing visual experience, but that it can reach really high altitudes when it pumps the brakes and makes it a little bit fun. More importantly, it also reminds us that Supernatural can balance the uncanny with surprisingly deep observations of its characters.

Dean's inherent endeavor to preserve the innocence of the Scooby Gang testifies to his own desire to return to a time fleeing before his life imploded and he and his brother were forced into the dangerous family business. Although they are eventually forced to tell the truth about the supernatural to Fred and the rest of the gang when people start dying, the Winchesters are also able to correct their mistake and convince the Scooby Gang that they were wrong and that monsters are not real. It is impossible for Sam and Dean to clean their slate, it is impossible for them to return to a time of innocence, but they can create the illusion of animated men, women and talking dogs of Scooby-Doo ,
The knowledge that Supernatural in its thirteenth season can still produce quite imaginative episodes like "Scoobynatural" is certainly impressive, but more interesting is what it says about the show: that it's not just It is best if they have the freedom to free themselves from the constraints of stopping another apocalypse, but there is probably more gas in Babies' tanks. Supernatural suddenly does not seem to be that bad anymore.
