good start but "deanmom" lacking
9 October 2014 | by lathamvSee all my reviews

"Black" was a good intro to the season. They gave the audience some previews of what story lines will be expanded upon during the season. although the episode may have touched the beginning of too many ideas which made the episode a little convoluted (one star lost).

The only other issue was "Deanmon" wasn't the demon I expected. I understand hes wanting to take a vacation from being humanity's savior but nothing about him said "demon" to me... he was just Dean on a bender. Another star lost for not living up to the expectations of "DEANMON". If they want us to believe Dean is really a demon, we have to see that in him. Granted, the writers have a whole season to expand the idea but a sample of that part of him would have made this episode an exceptional premier.
