"The French Mistake"

Best Saturday morning ever!!!!
All I can say is that this episode was really worth being excited over all week! I even had trouble falling asleep last night, cause I knew that when I woke up, I would finally be able to watch those epic 40 minutes! :)
I don't even know where to start ... all the little jabs they took at fandom, the Show staff, J&J, Misha .... It was absolutely awesome. The otter dinner? The picture of Western!Jared in the Padalecki mansion? "I'm a painted whore"? The days of our lives clip? Misha making fun of his Cas voice?  "Good night little fella!"? "Strictly speaking, she's, you know, new. No offense!".
I've never watched or heard of a show that makes fun of itself to that extent. I love them all so much for being crazy and brave enough to do that! Nothing is sacred to Ben Edlund, that's for sure!
And the fake acting scene had me in stitches :) Honestly, it's been a long time since I laughed so hard at anything on my TV! Dean's faaaaace, oh my God. And Jared's "I'm not supposed to look at the camera...."

The only "drawback" in my opinion was that it was one more episode in which they didn't mention the Mother thing that's supposed to be the big deal for the rest of the season, and they also only lightly touched upon the Angel civil war aspect. Those two story lines sound so interesting, and yet they haven't really made anything good out of it. I hope that changes in the next few episodes ... or maybe they're leaving it for Season 7? Who knows! And I don't really get why Cas and the boys never find the time to have a decent conversation and keep bitching to each other instead. I mean, half of the show's problems could be solved if they all just TALKED TO EACH OTHER! Why can't it be like in the earlier seasons, where they helped each other out when there were problems and when they actually liked being around each other? Now it's just Dean accusing Cas of not being there for him and Cas not understanding what Dean goes through. Stop the fighting, boys! You should all kiss and make up :)
Anyway, I really enjoyed "The French Mistake" and I'm also glad that even this lighthearted, funny episode had a serious touch to it when Jared denied that the AU wasn't really better because "we're not even brothers". My heart just melted when he said that ... and also "At least we're talking!" Only Supernatural can do that, making you laugh AND cry while watching an episode!

I very much agree with you - I enjoyed this episode a lot! The bad acting had me laughing so hard. And Jared's house - "There's a camel in your garden!" or Jensen's trailer with the huge aquarium. I absolutely adore the way they're making fun of themselves, their real selves, it was awesome!

And the bit where Sam basically said he didn't want the life as a famous actor with a lot of money, a beautiful wife and without any apocalypse and hell crap cos in that life, Dean wasn't his brother? So much LOVE ♥ I live for those moments :)

I checked Twitter and apparently Misha was tweeting the tweets from the episode in time with when they appeared on TV, I thought that was pretty awesome, too. They must have enjoyed making this episode so much!

Yes, I just saw that Misha actually tweeted during the episode! Those guys are so awesome, I just can't ... how could anybody NOT love them???

And the bit where Sam basically said he didn't want the life as a famous actor with a lot of money, a beautiful wife and without any apocalypse and hell crap cos in that life, Dean wasn't his brother?
I know, it was so ... cute, really! I just wanted to hug and squeeze him and say "That's my boy!" Dean was touched, too :)
Also, I totally want an alpaca now :) Is there any special reason why Jared would have one in his backyard? Is it known to be his favorite animal or something? If so, I can understand ... they're really fluffy :) And the picture of the alpaca on the mantelpiece? Priceless :)

I kinda took the whole thing with the alpaca (and having a pic of it next to the wedding picture) and Gen going to some funraising thing for otters as a jibe against Jared's love for his dogs and how he's really into all kinds of charities for animals?! At least that's my interpretation of it. And the alpaca was just so funny, too.

I think Cas deserves to be lectured but he is an angel and doesn't get human things.

Really enjoyed the eppy :)
