Continuing with Supernatural: the Animation, we skip ahead to s2 for the story "Roadkill", though keeping the "we must find Dad!" throughline in the background.
There's a little more brotherly banter, and some of Dean's lines are pretty good, but the "we must find dad!" stuff still feels very pasted-on and the exposition is extremely clunky. Despite the improvement in dialog, Dean continues to be more stereotype "tough guy" than, well, Dean. Granted, they really don't have much time to fit in character work, but it's a shame. Sam suffers a bit, too. He completely botches the first "David's still alive" reveal, and then kind of botches it the second time, and the only reason he doesn't feel as out of character as Dean is that he's basically just serving as walking exposition, which allows him to kind of dodge this issue.
I do give this script props for not just doing a basic rehash of the original episode--the action sequences all do new things, and have the bonus of being much tighter than those of SPN:TA 1.01. I'm guessing they had to drop the musical radio cues because of copyright issues, but the grandfather clock, despite feeling kind of random, functions pretty well instead. Also they throw in a new element which I wasn't expecting at all, but fits with the overall altered tone of the show thus far.
Final verdict? Much better constructed than the previous episode, but still lacking something
