Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2020 ☘️
“Dean has a lot to deal with; a brother without a soul, a conscience, or much interest in Dean’s welfare. And fairies (including a tiny winged naked lady), who’ve been kidnapping firstborn sons – like Dean.”
Clap Your Hands If You Believe, references a lot of popular alien and Irish mythology ideas. There is also an appearance of the amazing actor Robert Picardo, who had been in the tv series Star Trek Voyager before this episode. His presence alone makes for some awesome nerd watching right there, Star Trek is an incredible sci-fi universe, in its own right.
Edlund went deep with this one, from snagging a famous character actor to the various storylines, he outdoes himself here. The Irish folklore ties fairies and the Leprechaun closely together (bringing us to St. Patrick’s Day). Like most folklore, the Leprechaun has developed over time. The basic idea is that he is an antisocial creature obsessed with gold. If captured, so the story goes, he will grant three wishes. The other part of the story is he hides his gold or wealth at the end of a rainbow. The Leprechaun is part of the Irish fairy mythology. To find out more, you will have to watch the episode.
This episode pulls out all the stops and is worth viewing. From classic rock music by David Bowie, it doesn’t fail in any way. The humour also has the Eric Kripke and Ben Edlund hallmarks about it.
