A Very Supernatural Christmas


Am I the only one who flailed over the "A Special Presentation" intro graphic?! I totally remember that! It's HERE, I think, among several other TV logos from the '70s and '80s.

And aww, an ep that can make laugh REALLY hard (the boys forced to carol, ha!) and Bad!Santa taking the cookie, and also sniffle over it being Dean's last Christmas and all. We know that won't happen! (Why do I think/hope that Bela will end up being instrumental in stopping that...? I guess because I'd rather see more of her than Ruby. Still, nice to have a chick-free ep, yes? ;D)

This reminded me of the fairy tale ep, with the super happy/super creepy older folks slaying people. (And wasn't that an ep of Buffy as well, with the old guy out to sacrifice ... um, Dawn? *forgets*)

And OUCH for Sammy's fingernail. It's gonna take a year for that to grow back! Those boys must be a mass of scars by now!

So yes, a very good episode!

And a big, fat, happy birthday to holycitygirl! Hope it was a good one!

This was such a great ep! The ending was just so good.
And ow, I cringed so hard at the torture scene.

It was so good! Of course, Sam's going to find a way to save Dean! But there'll be plenty of angst in the meantime (and, no doubt, after!) Unless they pull an Angel on us and really send Dean to hell!

Anyway, yes, the torture scene -- gah, the fingernail!

Hush? And, yeah, they introduced that creepy old guy in 'Forever' and he came back as one of Glory's followers in 'The Gift'. I think. It always creeps me out when people are happy whilst doing horrible things. Then again, it gives Dean room to say "fudge" in the place of "fuck". Which, yeah, funny.

I'm still stuck on the amulet thing. I didn't see it coming, that the necklace Dean has been wearing since the show started, he's been wearing because Sam gave it to him for Christmas when he was a kid. I love what that means for Dean, what Sam means to Dean. It's been made readily apparent that Sam is Dean's whole world by now, but little details like that really bring it home for me.

That, and the way Dean flips the hell out every time anyone even comes near Sam. *sigh* I love these boys to death.

No, not Hush, the one where Dawn is with the teenagers and they're trick or treating (I think!) and it seems like they're going to hurt this old man when really he's the one who's evil. So it's a different creepy guy than ... Joel Grey, right? Aha, I looked up the ep. It IS a Halloween ep: All the Way . That's the one that last night's ep reminded me of. :)

I love those Winchester boys to death too. Just like they love each other. Except, I maintain, their love is purely brotherly!

I flailed over the graphic too. Which, I guess, totally dates us, right?

That ep really had so much packed into it - comedy, angst, horror, flashback, brotherly stuff, foreshadowing, more angst... It was a good 'un.

It does date us, LOL! Oh well!

This ep was a really great mix of all my fave SPN stuff! :)

Hee, that graphic made me all kinds of giddy too. Well, the whole episode did, to be fair. :)

Leave it to SPN to make people choke up and snort with laughter... practically at the same time.

The whole episode was great. Maybe a tad too much wee!Chesters for me, but still loved it! It's the rare show that can make me howl with laughter and then tear up, all in the same hour. *doffs hat to Kripke & crew*

Okay, I don't get The CW so I have to download the show every week, and I tell ya, when I was checking if the file was okay, I thought I had the wrong torrent when this neon 80s logo was looking back at me. LOL. I had to skip ahead to figure out what the hell was going on.

The ep was awesome. I had high hopes and I was not disappointed. I just hope I don't lose a fingernail any time over the holidays for any reason.

Hee, I can imagine that made you go, "WTF?" :) Glad you stuck with it! And how rotten would that be, to have gotten some '80s or '70s Christmas special instead? It was just one more thing that made it a terrific ep! And yes, hang onto those fingernails! :)

Such an awesome episode. I was completely unspoiled for it which was nice but also a little weird.

The caroling made me lol so hard, I just couldn't help it.
Sam saying he couldn't do Christmas because it would be Dean's last broke me, as did the giving of Christmas gifts (both with the older boys and the wee!chesters)

Eugh, I couldn't look at the screen when the lady pulled off Sam's fingernail. That was so horrible. For a moment I thought they were actually going to take one of Dean's teeth and I almost cried. i can't look at stuff like that.

Yes, there was a Buffy episode like that. I think it was the same one where Anya tells the gang that Santa is real, he's just kind of evil. I thought of that when "Santa" killed the first guy and I lol'ed a bit ;)

I was also unspoiled! It's the way to go! I don't even watch the previews, usually, so it's very fun watching it and having next to now idea what's going to happen. Refreshing!

And god, the caroling still makes me laugh, even the day later. Priceless!

And the Buffy ep I was thinking of was the one where Dawn and some other kids go trick or treating and end up at what seems like a kind old man's house, but he's really evil. Of course! SPN doesn't have the patent on cutesy older folks being evil but they do get a lot of mileage out of it!

What a heartbreaking and amazing episode!

Still, nice to have a chick-free ep, yes? ;D
Like I said in my review,it's good to have a Winchesters only episode.I LOVE Bobby and like Ruby a lot,but no Bobby,no silly girls,just Sam and Dean-was perfect:)

I really enjoyed this one, kind of hit on everything I love about the show, for the most part. :)

I have a thing about fingernails. I flat-out could not fucking watch at that moment. I was about to be sick to my stomach.

FINGERNAILS ARE DIFFERENT. They're all sticky-outy and vulnerable. One step above eyeballs. *shuddershuddershudder* (Plus, getting a fingernail plucked out could conceivably happen outside of a torture scenario, which makes it SO MUCH WORSE.)

Hee, I have to rib ya a little, right? :)

Fingernails (and toenails) are indeed horrible to have messed with. I get nauseous just thinking of it! I've had a toe broken and one fingernail slammed in a door as a kid and neither were fun, nosir! And why did my brain jump to the nail-torture convos that Sam and Sawyer could have now? (Also, why isn't there fic where Sayid and Jack Bauer meet up? There must be, right?)

lol! yeah, that's about the only show I watch where I go for sure to "ewwwww!" and "awwwwww!" in the span of one hour!

it was good to have the boys only, I agree :)

that fingernail scene was nasty, yuck

Hee, maybe Bones, but yes, there are very few shows that hit both notes! Very good to see the boys again, definitely! And now ... who knows when the next ep will be? *wibbles*

You know, I actually screamed when they pulled out Sam's fingernail! Having in mind how much Sawyer screamed for the sticks under his finger, I was expecting Sam to pass out from that. *cringes and shudders*

They should make a scar 'show and tell' with Sawyer. Just sayin' ;)
