Poor, poor teddy bear!  
Minor Supernatural spoilers from a few weeks ago

A few weeks ago on Supernatural there was a hilarious episode with a life sized Teddy Bear having an existential crisis. I think anyone who has ever had a suicidal thought would howl with laughter at the plight of the depressed teddy bear, wished into a life sized, conscious existence by the little girl who owns him. “Why am I here?” he says, “For tea parties?”

Later in the episode we see him clutching a shot gun, having left a note on a chalkboard: "Life is Meaningless. Signed T. Bear." The camera pans away from the bear and we hear a shot and see a spray of stuffing fly into the air. Near the end of the episode we see the little girl with her normal sized teddy, a bandage over the wound on his head. Awwww.

I so appreciate the sense of humor with which the writers lighten Supernatural, which could be such a dark show no one would want to watch it otherwise. This season they've really outdone themselves, I have to say. If you haven't been following Supernatural, I highly recommend catching up on past seasons.

we are big fans of the show. only show i really care to actually sit and watch(i have the kids synopsize a couple of otehr shows for me).

and YES that was a great episode! the existential crisis part was well done! and not nearly as traumatizing as they could have made it(and i'm speaking for myself, there).

the part about the little kid who gets back at the bullies was great too! esp dean's helping the kid at the end of that bit.

I've never bothered to watch Supernatural...but now I may have to look it up, just for that episode. It sounds awful and hilarious!

Wow, I haven't watched Supernatural in a while. I think I've only seen the first season on DVD, or maybe I'd started the second season . . . anyways, thanks for pointing out to me that there are still reasons to watch that show. I will definitely have to catch up on it again!
