Monster Of The Week: A Supernatural Podcast
About the Show
Monster of the Week's goal is to cover the entire Supernatural TV show before the hosts die or get bored. So far we (Chris and Jeremy, who map onto Sam and Dean in frightening ways) haven't died or gotten bored yet, so we're doing good. We take a light hearted look at the show we all so dearly love, so you'll get a mix of "did they really need to show all that nipple action?" along with our detailed discussion about Dean's emotional issues on any given episode. Shipping people, exaggerating things, the fandom business.
Episode 30: B.M.O.C.
July 20th, 2017
2 hrs 17 mins
This week's podcast covers three episodes that takes the forward momentum that season 4 has had and SLAMS on the brakes. We don't think these are bad episodes, but taking a break from the meta plot for four episodes after 10 straight amazing episodes is a bit of a whiplash. That said, don't worry listeners: this is a great episode of the podcast and we squeeze every single brother-emotion out of each one. First up: Criss Angel is a Douchebag, in which our boys try to figure out what to do during a magician convention. Next, After School Special explores some of the depressing shit the Winchester brothers lived through as kids going to school, and also confirms that John Winchester is a terrible father. Finally, we wrap up with Sex and Violence and learn that Dean's ultimate fantasy is depressingly pedestrian. Like a said: a great episode of Monster of the Week.
Episode 29: Morning Curse
July 13th, 2017
1 hr 52 mins
What's that listeners? You want to listen to extended descriptions of Dean having sex in the backseat of an Impala with an angel of the gee dee LORD? Well, we're sorry. We don't do that here. Instead, we talk about each episode in detail and make a bunch of jokes in between. We start with I Know What You Did Last Summer, a fun episode about a woman tuned into Angel Radio, and continues into Heaven and Hell, when we find out Dean's right: angels are DICKS. Finally, the moment you've been waiting for: Chris and I (I'm Jeremy btw) don't agree on Family Remains, and it's a fun argument. lol jk we never argue about anything, I'm too nice and Chris is too sweet.
Episode 28: These Stellar Looks Are No Blessing
July 6th, 2017
1 hr 54 mins
We're back with more season 4, y'all! This week we cover episode six, seven, and eight, starting with Yellow Fever, and episode notable for the dumbest way to kill a ghost and also the dumbest way a ghost kills someone. Then we get right into It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester, in which an ancient demon is summoned, Dean calls an angel a dick, and Sam goes dark side (for like the eighth time). Finally, we discuss Wishful Thinking, in which a teddy bear wishes for an end to the unbearable agony of existence, a nerd wishes for a girl, and Dean wishes for a sandwich. This is a good one folks!
Episode 27: Porky's 2 is Woke
June 29th, 2017
1 hr 58 mins
Hello listeners! Today Chris and Jeremy continue their journey through the amazing season 4. First up is In the Beginning, in which Dean Winchester is transported back in time to find out how hot his mom is (his words!). Second is Metamorphosis, an episode about someone turning into a monster and not being to stop themselves from killing the people they love, plus a Rugaru is there. Finally, we talk about Monster Movie, a delightful tale of a shapeshifter comfortable enough in their gender identity to be a woman, a dracula, a mummy, or a werewolf.
Episode 26: 2 Broke Demons
June 22nd, 2017
1 hr 56 mins
Welcome to season four! From talking with our listeners, I know all of you are pretty excited for this season. It has some of the best episodes of the series, introduces an extremely important character, and continually ramps up our meta-plot in a very enjoyable way. First up: Lazarus Rising, which answers the question of just how the heck Dean is going to get out of Hell (OR IS HE???). Then we talk about Are You There God? It's Me, Dean Winchester, which is another great episode if you like angels that are scary as all hell. Enjoy!
Episode 25: Every Kiss Ends in Graves
June 15th, 2017
1 hr 26 mins
Hello friends! Last week we finished Season 3 off, so this week's episode is all about you, and your responses. We are joined by friend-of-the-show Audrey Lee at the start to wrap up our thoughts about the season and also play a little game of F&*% Marry Hunt. After a short musical break, Chris and Jeremy answer questions about the show, werewolf sex, and a whole lot of other stuff besides. Thank you everyone for writing in!
Episode 24: How Shredded is the Werewolf?
June 8th, 2017
1 hr 37 mins
We did it! Another season down. This week we cover the last two episodes of Season 3: "Time is on My Side" and "No Rest for the Wicked." Both of these episodes seem extremely rushed, a victim of the industry-wide writer's strike that happened the year season 3 was coming out. We get into it in the episode, but Bela's arc specifically seems cut short to the point where it almost doesn't even make sense. Then, in the finale, there's one HELL of a cliffhanger. [Editors note: remember to insert one million winking emojis here before publishing].
Episode 23: DEAN PLZ
June 1st, 2017
1 hr 42 mins
Hello everyone! This week's episode of Monster of the Week covers three great (?) episodes of Supernatural Season 3. First up is Jus in Bello, the pronunciation and meaning of which Chris and Jeremy argue over for at least 45 minutes. Second is GHOSTFACERS, and that's all that needs to be said about that. Finally, Long Distance Call, which starts out genuinely creepy and then melts into just kinda dumb. They can't all be winners, folks.
Episode 22: Stop Trying To Make Hex Happen
May 25th, 2017
2 hrs 18 mins
On this week's Monster of the Week, we go Back in Time to visit the Heat of the Moment. That's right! It's time for Mystery Spot, easily the best episode of the series so far. To get there, first we need to cover "Malleus Maleficarum" which Chris told me meant "hammer witches" and I'm pretty sure definitely doesn't mean that. Then we get into "Dream a Little Dream of Me," in which Bobby has a dream and the boys have to hunt it. I wish I was kidding. Finally, Mystery Spot, in which Dean dies ONE HUNDRED TIMES. It's nuts, and it's great.
Like what you hear? Leave us an iTunes Review! Tell your friends about the show! Draw a picture of Chris dying like Dean and send it to us, and I'll make sure it gets made into a t-shirt! I'm totally serious!
Episode 21: Hungry For Sam Hog
May 18th, 2017
1 hr 44 mins
The week, Chris and Jeremy set sail for the high seas and board the Black Pearl in search of women, revenge, and treasure. They are joined this week by Captain Jack Sparr- wait, that's not right. Let me try this again: this week your boys are back and are ready to tackle three very odd Supernatural episodes. First up: GHOST SHI-uh, I mean "Red Sky at Morning," which is about GHOST SHIPS and Sam getting hit on by CLASSY LADIES and Dean getting hit on by Bella. Next we jump into "Fresh Blood" and we catch up with friend of the show, Gordon B. Lurkin, who is somehow out of prison and on the hunt for Sam and Dean. Also: a lil bit o' the good ol' ultra violence, mate. Finally, we wrap up this week's episode with "A Very Supernatural Christmas," which does something truly gross with Sam's fingernails. I wish I was kidding.
Episode 20: Big J's #1 Fan
May 11th, 2017
2 hrs 14 mins
Chris and Jeremy continue their S3 coverage, and this week it's a wide swing of episodes. We start out with the fantastic "Bad Day at Black Rock", in which Sam loses a shoe and Dean loses $15,000. The we get into "Sin City," which is an ok episode that features one tragically underused guest. Finally, it's "Bedtime Stories" and frankly, the less said about that episode the better. Be sure to check out Monster of the Week Dot Cool for all your hunky needs.
Episode 19: Dean Stayed Strong, But I Didn't
May 4th, 2017
1 hr 23 mins
After a brief break to answer some hilarious questions, Chris and Jeremy are back, and starting into Season 3. First up, Sam and Dean fight the Seven Deadly Sins in "The Magnificent Seven", an average episode at best. Next they jump to the outstanding "The Kids are Alright", which is good mainly for our first glimpse into how a kid version of Dean would act in the real world. Spoilers: it's ADORABLE.
Episode 18: LEGIT R.I.P.
April 27th, 2017
1 hr 34 mins
Hello hunks! This week we're taking a break from main season coverage to answer your questions. Before we get to those, though, we have a special guest: Joanna! Joanna is a big fan of the show, both the TV show and the podcast, and is one of our earliest fans. We chat with her about season 2, shipping, and why Sam sucks (lol j/k but really he does). After Joanna leaves, Chris and Jeremy tackle your questions, including several varieties of F**k/Marry/Kill, the best Sam haircut, and dreamboats. It's a great episode folks, but really, aren't they all?
Episode 17: Dad's Diary
April 20th, 2017
1 hr 21 mins
It's here! Chris and Jeremy finally finish up coverage of S2. Only 260 more episodes of Supernatural to cover before this podcast is finally over and they can go back to their daily lives. Hahahaha yeah right like either of those guys have lives, amirite?! Anyway, the first episode is "All Hell Breaks Loose Pt. 1" and it starts off with a (self) bang. Don't worry, that will make more sense once you listen to the episode. After that it's straight into the finale for "All Hell Breaks Loose Pt. 2," where Dean has to make a dangerous deal and the amount of secrets the boys have from one another literally doubles in one episode.
Episode 16: Get Out of Djinn Free Card
April 13th, 2017
1 hr 53 mins
Man, when we named this show Monster of the Week, we had no idea how many weekly monsters we'd be talking about. The Supernatural episodes we cover this week don't really tie us into the main plot, but they are FUN. First up, "Hollywood Babylon", where Dean finds his one true calling as a production assistant. Second is "Folsom Prison Blues", in which Dean finds his second true calling as a lifer. Finally, we get into "What Is and Never Should Be...", in which Dean finds is THIRD true calling as the drunk of the family. I hope you like Dean, because this is a Dean heavy episode.
