SPN - Bedtime Stories



So, because I'm not really in SPN fandom, I didn't know who the guest star of much specialness was until I read about it in zelda_zee's LJ just now. Personally, I think she was oodles better than the actress who played Cassie. Or Jo. Or Madison. LOL. I could go on! So there you have it, an entirely unbiased opinion from someone who didn't have the first clue who she was! I kept thinking "So, is the doctor someone I should recognize?" as no one recognizable had appeared so far.

My attention wandered a bit during this episode. What was up with the frog? But I liked it. And did anyone else think that Sam was leaving Dean when he walked out of that hotel room? That that was his way of letting him go? No one else?

And OMG, I had to laugh because in my abandoned SPN Halloween fic from last year, my whole starting point was the boys discussing The Sixth Sense and how that was Mischa Barton in it! LOL! Ahhhh. Oh well.

And at the beginning of this ep, I thought, "Ooh, maybe finally a werewolf ep!" And then I remembered we'd already had one. Still waiting for a good one, honestly! (Yeah, I think I'm in the minority in not liking that one, apart from the sex scene and the music.)

And I forgot to watch Moonlight tonight. Oh well. And I'm permanently giving up on Heroes. I just stopped giving a damn.

I gave up on Heroes a few weeks ago. Same reason.

Yeah, I just don't give a rat's ass about half the storylines and it was such work to have to force myself to watch it, even with fast-forwarding through some of them. I had three eps TiVoed and after trying and failing to make it through the first one, I just gave up and deleted them all. Oh well! I have plenty of other TV to watch and I was never in that fandom.

And did anyone else think that Sam was leaving Dean when he walked out of that hotel room?

I did! I actually thought he was gonna go off and, like, dedicate the rest of the season to trying to break the curse whether Dean liked it or not. Which sorta ended up being what he did, only he probably came back afterward.

I think Sandy's a cutie pie, but her acting wasn't great. I think that she could have been better if she had a smaller part. Like, Waitress Dean Hits on #2, or something. But that scene was emotionally heavy and I don't think Sandy was a good enough actress to carry it.

I can't, however, say enough about Jensen's acting in the hallway scene between Sam and Dean. Jensen has this talent for taking all this emotions, shoving them into his eyes, and making your heart ache for him. I've seen few actors do it, and do it well, but he's one of them (and Josh Holloway is the other, even though, I think Josh is still a better actor). And also, the second-long look on his face after Sam said, "You're not Dad." So, for an episode that I was pretty lukewarm on, those were the moments that really stood out for me.

That, and Sammy's sad, pathetic, adorable little drawing. ;)

I'd have to say that the chick who played Madison bugged me a lot worse (and failed more miserably with her big dramatic scenes) but then she was in her ep a lot more. Eh. *shrugs* I haven't liked most of the females on the show, demon or otherwise, but particularly the demons. I liked the hospital one (er, actually a reaper) and I think that's about it! Oh, and the Sin City one, of course! She was very good!

Jensen still kills me, definitely. I'd be in heaven if he and Josh ever got to act together!

Sammy's drawing was adorable! As is your icon. :) And I'm glad they didn't split the brothers up for too long.

I thought he was leaving as well, you are not alone in that.

I thought everyone was going to latch onto the "gay" comment, you know, that's a good reason to like this show, there is drama and laughs mixed in.

I'm watchind CSI on onDemand..so I could just watch SPN last night, both shows were great.

Heroes, I'm still watching, I'll say the two problems with it right now...

1. it seems like it's piecemeal, just jagged random scenes..like that scene with Claire..first she agrees to do it (and it was a little on the stupid side) and then she says, "Someone could have seen us" why would she do it in the first place? A guy I work with said he's having a problem with the characters, that they act out of the character that has been established..that Claire was so independent last season and now she's doing things she wouldn't do--me, I'm chalking it up to her hormones taking over.

2. They should have put the "what happened in the 4 months that followed Peter goes boom" episode as the SECOND episode of the season, not the 7th.

And while I still love it, I think for a twist it would have been great to see Alejandro totally understand what Sylar was saying, and speaking back to him in English. Now THAT would have been a twist.

I haven't watched the last three eps of Heroes but having people act out of character is never good! It's been rather slow, agreed, with all the new people. And they should have gotten to Peter sooner, definitely. At the end of the finale, I figured Nathan was the one who'd died as Peter can regenerate -- so I don't really get what happened there. And as hot as shirtless Peter was, it's not enough to keep me watching. I thought I'd read recaps only but then realized I don't really care what happens. And you know I'm not a fan of Sylar so I wasn't thrilled to see him come back.

And as for Supernatural, yeah, I laughed over the gay comment but since I don't do Wincest, I figured I'd let the fangirls who do run with that one. :)

Honestly you really aren't missing much, I just wish they'd freakin' get to the Kensei story..which will have an impact on all of them, that's why I think he's the Big Cheese in all of this, the string puller, the one that is behind everything.

But I totally understand as well, characters acting out of character, taking too long with Peter's storyline, and personally, I think the Maya storyline, I've gotten to the point where I'll freakin' buy them a ticket to NYC.

I don't do Wincest either, I was figuring those who do on my flist would be squeeing about that one though.

Yeah, it sounds like a lot of people are losing interest. And why do shows always keep adding so many new characters? Augh!

Pretty, pretty Sammy... *pets*

I know you wrote about other stuff in this post, but I'm afraid it all went out of my head the second I got to the pics. :)

Hee. I'm usually a Dean girl but there was just something extra pretty about Sammy in this ep! :)

I personally think Alona Tal is a good actress but I didn't like the character of Jo. Not until BUABS anyways.
I adore Sandy, she seems so cute, but I wasn't too crazy about her in that scene and I think they could've gotten a better actress to play the part.

I'd seen pics of Sandy and Jared from that last scene so I was kind of waiting for it all through the episode and I figured that was what Sam was doing when he left but my friend that I was watching with, almost started crying because she thought Sam left. So you're not alone ;)

I thought this episode was really cool and both Jared and Jensen were great and they sort of made me tear up once or twice...

Forgot Heroes.
The only reason I currently watch it because I love Kristen Bell. hell, I watched S3 of Veronica Mars for her, which makes this easy. Haven't paid much attention to the last few episodes, though, and I tend to skip some parts because they're too boring, but I still watch.
halfdutch
Nov. 3rd, 2007 06:31 pm (UTC)
Ahhh, was S3 of VM bad? LOL. I stuck with Buffy til the bitter end and wow, was it bitter!

I liked Claire and Peter and Hiro, but I just don't care about the big boogie man or Molly or ... well, all the rest of it. And so many of the existing characters bore or bug me and I didn't like any of the new ones. And I'm not a VM fan, so nothing really to keep me watching. I guess I'm not alone in being bored, then!

The season in itself was really bad and I couldn't help but compare it to S1 which was fantastic and utterly brilliant (even Joss Whedon said that VMars was the best thing on TV and he did a guest spot on the show) and knowing how great it could've been, made it that much worse.

Heh, I'm actually watching Buffy at the moment. Just started S5 and am in the middle of S2 of Angel. Have heard that buffy gets worse whereas Angel gets better.

Yeah, even the characters I liked last year (the same as you + Nathan) are starting to bore me now...
halfdutch
Nov. 4th, 2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
Oh, I like Nathan too! :) But I just don't really care about the big picture and all the new characters. And I tried to get into VM but I never could. *shrugs*

Buffy does indeed get worse and worse. :-( S7 is painful! But ... you have to hang in there for the musical episode! That makes it all worthwhile. I confess I got so disillusioned during S6 that I read all the spoilers I could find. So I can't say how happy I would have been with the way it wrapped up since none of it was a surprise at that point. Basically, I think adding Dawn was the beginning of the end. BAD idea. Same with a similar character on Angel. MEH! But Angel was mostly very enjoyable, apart from ... well, you'll see! And they went out on a strong note, definitely.

Both Buffy and Angel were on TV here years back and I caught a few episodes here and there but it wasn't anything I was really interested in. I remember some things though, like Angel having a son who apparently grew up really fast and then had sex with Cordelia. And I remember Dawn vaguely. Am trying to forget most of it so it'll be a surprise but I'm not really succeeding.

I loved that episode your icon is from! I think both SMG and Eliza Dushku did a fantastic job, they got all the little things right and it was wonderful to watch. After being excited about how great that episode was, I started thinking about how much I want a bodyswap episode of Supernatural. I think Jared and Jensen could really pull it off and I so hope we'll get one sometime in the future. Didn't one of the writers say it was a possibility, too? I'm going to pretend to have heard it, anyway ;)

Ahh, yeah the Connor/Cordelia debacle was what I was referring to as the absolute low point of Angel! I actually switched over to watching Alias for a while there, but I eventually came back and was glad I did. But yeah, worst plot line to explain an actresses' real life pregnancy. EVER.

And ahh, I would love some body switching, LOL! I adore that ep of Buffy and I think Jensen & Jared would have a blast with it!

From what I can recall, it was just extremely weird. But I'm wathcing it on DVD this time so I can always just fast forward through the worst stuff.

Let's keep out fingers crossed for getting one ;)

I have liked Alona Tal in certain scenes, like when she's scared or pining after Dean, but she didn't really rock the "badass" quality I think they were hoping for in Jo.

I'm not very impressed with most of the female demons, apart from the one in Sin City. I particularly haven't liked any of the crossroads demons so far, apart from the first black one who takes Robert Johnson's soul, so to me Sandy was about on par with the rest of them.

I didn't cry when Sammy died (because i knew it couldn't last!) but I did start to cry when it looked like he was leaving Dean. Noooo! Ahh, those boys always get to me!

I must confess I thought Sam was leaving too.

I liked the episode, was puzzled by the familiarity of the girl playing the demon, until the penny dropped. I thought she did okay to be honest.

Jensen Ackles continues to stun me, apart from the sheer beauty of the guy he's a fine actor and getting better all the time.

Nov. 3rd, 2007 06:30 pm (UTC)
Ahh, good to know I'm not the only one! I always watch this show in a vacuum, no spoilers, no promos even, and I have to say I really enjoy it that way. Since I don't do Wincest, I was never gonna get deeply into fandom anyway so I enjoy being unspoiled, as much as i can be on LJ!

And mmm, yes, Jensen gets me every time with not just those lips and eyes, but how much emotion he can convey with so little. Damn fine to watch on so many levels!

Oh, I never thought he was leaving Dean... eep. I would have somehow freaked. I did start yelling at him and calling him stupid when he got to the crossroad though. damn you boys, with your never ending mix of love and angst! ♥

lovely lovely pics. Sam is certainly getting very distracting lately, as my focus used to be almost all on Dean. and once an episode (or more) I'm going all: OMG look at his haaaaaaand!!! O_o

Those Winchesters! Always ready to die for a family member on the spot! Oh, the angst!

And yeah, it was kind of all about Sammy this ep, who'd thunk? Sometimes I kind of, er, lose interest in Sammy-centric eps but I liked this one!
