Anyone have thoughts on S8 so far?

I keep meaning to catch up with this season. I'd forgotten it had even started, til my mom said.

First two episodes were good, following two were meh (to me at least) and I missed the last one.

So far, standard SPN style.

Last season's finale was a great cliffhanger for me, but I hate how they simply did not bank on it to give it the propper follow-up on season 8.

Spoiler
Dean's return is explained well enough, but to me, he ought to be considerably more PTSD. People in jail serving a 1-year sentence return to society far worse than Dean does, and he was in a place where every thing trapped with him wanted to rip him to shreds 24-7. I was expecting Dean to be a true mess. Instead, we get a happy-go-lucky hunter with a new "brother". Dean's plot is not necesarily bad. Just unfulfilled.

Sam's plot is just fucking junk. We just saw Dean go through this while Sam was in the cage, and Dean's story then was much more interesting. Really, I don't give a shit about Sam's current drama, let alone all the time they are spending on his crappy flashbacks.

To be fair, Dean was already in Hell, saw an Apocalyptic scenario where Sam said "Yes" to Lucifer and zombies were the majority, and he's been fighting many of these creatures for years on end. He also had Cas with him for a bit, and the preview of the next episode seems to imply some possibility of PTSD over Cas.

Sam's drama? Yeah, its boring...

I've watched it since the premiere, but I have to say, the last two seasons... I've found myself more and more willing to see them as re-runs.

I was ok with last season, but this one seems rather bumpy to me. I think the themes in the season itself are fine, but I don't think they are giving last season's finale the right follow-up. Things ought to have had escalated rather than taken such a dramatic step backwards.

I personally think that they are trying to break away from the formula the Gamble saga (S6-7) created as it pretty much chased itself in circles, and then into the wall by practically repeating Dean ending up in another dimension and presumed dead. This season really isn't so bad, its got the same filler as the previous seasons, and same brother drama. Most of the seasons started kinda slow and the last one in particular took awhile to do anything with the main plot. The second, third and sixth seasons had similar problems.

I also miss the humor. This season is just Dean grunting like Christian Bale, Sam being lost and Cas falling back and forth in his sanity.
