SPN 9.21: King of the Damned review-ish


You know there’s a problem with a show when you think, “Well, that could have been a lot worse,” but when the episode was penned by the writing team of Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming, it’s a good thing. How sad is that? I have to say though that there were no PoCs in dog collars or major canon violations. So, they appear to be improving.

It was a character driven storyline, and I have to talk about a character who has sat too much in the background until now. Crowley. (more…)

Dean's man pain

I’ve been thinking about where Dean might be emotionally and mentally after Gadreel told him that there is no more Sam and then walked off in his brother’s body in Holy Terror.

angels are dicks

Yep, and the War in Heaven is now the war on Earth. Different factions of angels fighting for control of a place they’ve been booted out of. Metatron, the booter, is now lonely and wants to rebuild heaven with a chosen few – non-stupid and amusing angels. Um, yeah. Remember that. (more…)
