I'm in the film industry, actually.

Cool, what do you do and where?

Next week's episode is pretty neat, so far as they go this season. Remember Pumpkin and Honey Bunny, "All right, everybody be cool, this is a robbery!"


Fortunately for male viewers the title "Slash Fiction" ("a genre of fan fiction that focuses on the depiction of romantic or sexual relationships between fictional characters of the same sex") isn't literal. Although I can't help feeling that a huge chunk of the fan base might be disappointed by that.

Yeah, it would be a waste to destroy such a great story line.

btw this last episode felt a bit... i dunno, something was missing there


The whole season fires on 3 cylinders instead of 4. They totally messed up the development of season 6, threw out a lot of good ideas for Castiel's arc, and by the end it had become a trainwreck. That was, imho, all down to choosing SG to take over from EK. EK took over for the final 2-parter, but he was never good at classy finales, and he had so much to try and tie up because of SG's poor handling of the plot development earlier. The season 7 premiere, where they then had to undo the ridiculous "I am God" situation was heavy handed and pretty desperate. This season goes way to the other end of the spectrum by trying to recapture the monster-of-the-week format of season 1. Which I thought was pretty lame. Plus they're pushing the boat out again for the dumb blonde audience - not very challenging plots, not too many supporting characters. As Misha called it a few weeks back: "the reality show about the two mentally-challenged underwear-model brothers trying to impress God..."

I was talking to a friend earlier who - up until the end of season 6 - lived and breathed Supernatural. I asked her how she was finding the new season, and she said, "I haven't watched it. I'm so over it."

They're really gonna have to pull rabbits out of their ...hats to get a season 8, I predict. This season's wedding episode isn't as smart as they think.

Trust me, I know all the going-ons of the Supernatural behind the scenes and just why it's sucked thus far. Season 7 looked good, apart from this past episode.

Sera Gamble tends to overstep her "catering to the fandom" thing, so they might just try to push the slash innuendos here and there - which, by the way, I'm not really in the mood for whatsoever. Just glad that Eric Kripke is back on board, even if it isn't as showrunner, because at least he can push the show in the right direction.

This is a fricken awesome show. If only hunting supernatural stuff were that easy.
The more you keep pushing people away the less help you'll get towards the end. Call me arrogant, call me stubborn, beat me as bad as you want, I still wont quit and I damn sure wont back down.

I think he means if only all you had to do was stab something with a knife that kills (almost) anything, or you shoot them with a gun that kills (almost) anything.

Just finished watching the episode about Osiris, and yeah, not one of their better ones. Still, it was nice to see that girl again, the one who's name I will never remember on my own.

I actually don't hate the 'monster-of-the-week' format, I mean, it's still better than most shows out there. What they need to do though is actually have the episodes advance the story and characters each time. I mean, House MD is a 'disease-of-the-week' format, but I enjoy it. Why? Characters and overall story progression. Also, Hugh Laurie is awesome.

I see, true, but still they had to work hard sort of speak to get the knife (and the pistol). They are lucky for having Bobby IMHO. They would sooo be dead (again) without him. Also, they have been trained for the job since their earliest age, so that certainly gives them heads up.

Yeah, the episode with Osiris... wth? isnt it?

If they would get the old format back I would enjoy it better. But maybe its just me with my love for Angels and Demons stories *shrugs*

Probably lol, but give it time, I think they can do something with the whole Leviathan thing. And yeah, Bobby, awesome. And the fact that he handles so much and more hunters than just Sam and Dean. They would have died way back when without him. Watching the newest episode right now and it's 'alright', but want to see Bobby come back in to play.

Thought 'Maggies' acting was a bit terrible lol. The episodes was somewhat funny, but it didn't do much for story progression other than 'we caught one of these things now'.

Oh! To clarify. When I said this:

Season 7 looked good, apart from this past episode.

I meant the Witch Wars episode. Didn't like it much at all. That said, some of it was hilarious. The working out, for one, and the pie. Apart from that - zip. Nada.

Osiris episode was completely unnecessary. All it did was reiterated Dean's guilt and informed us that he might well have a drinking problem. That said, not quite as bad as the witch episode. On the other hand, from what I've heard of the rest of the season, it should improve.

Yeah, because something tells me that they remember the people that have 'banished' them.
