19 September 2009
How friggin cool is the X-Ray? I love the idea of Castiel carving the Enochian sigil to the boys' ribs. That's the best looking thing on the show since their tattoo or Cas's hand print on Dean's sexy arm.
God is not on any flatbread
I always love the chemisty between Dean and Cas. This is too funny, I couldn't stop laughing! When Cas told Dean he is looking for God, Dean said 'Try New Mexico. I hear he's on a tortilla.'. Cas actually thought about it for 2 seconds before he replied: 'He's not on any flatbread.' Whoever wrote this line (Sera, was that you?) YOU ARE A GENIUS!
Castiel is using the iPhone
Not really but that would be awesome! Since Castiel carved the Enochian sigil to the boys' rib, he can longer track them down like before, so he has to call them on their cell phone! I did a too silly fanvid on this last year, it's about Castiel asking Dean how to use the iPhone. That's funny to me.
The God EMF
Dean's amulet is the God EMF. How awesome is that Sera Gamble actually wrote that in! It almost feels like she did it for the fans! Too many fans ask about Dean's amulet. We know it was a Xmas present Sam gave it to Dean in season 3, but this... this is magnificent!
Cas is the best angel I know
Cas is pissed off (I wish he actually said the word PISS OFF). But I love it! He truely gave up everything for Dean. It was Dean who asked Cas to help and turned his back on Heaven to help him. All Cas is saying is that Dean should have faith and be more positive. I love Cas! He is the best angel I know!
WAR - what is it good for?
Meet one of the Four Horsemen WAR. WAR is played by Titus Welliver, he appeared on Lost with Mark Pellegrino. Man! How great was his performance? That slick businessman insurance asshole look.. You know you can't trust him when he tries to sell you insurance. He was totally believable! WAR is represented by the colour red, notice his car was a red mucle car. I actually didn't expect the Four Horsemen to appear this early on the show but then I thought why not? That was awesome! We can expect to see the other three later: Pestilence, Famine and Death.
Apart from skin mags, Dean reads the Bible. He saw the signs of WAR and he recognised them from the Book of Revelation! Dean reads the Bible! I am so reading the Bible! I have read it in Sunday school, but I was never this interested in reading the Bible. Holy Dean! I love you!
Welcome back Ellen, Jo and Rufus
How awesome was it to see Ellen, Jo and Rufus again? It didn't cross my mind that Ellen didn't know Dean was back from hell.. In fact did she actually know Dean was on hell in the first place? Jo honey! She didn't do much however it was just awesome! Hope to see her more this season! Rufus! Anothe great performance from Steve Williams. The intensity of his acting reminds me of his character Mr X on The X-Files.
Kleenex should sponsor Supernatural
The goodbye at the end of the episode was so so sad. You know they will hug again but I wish the last scene just didn't happen! But it has to happen! And there was no Winchester hug! What's that all about? Kleenex should sponsor the show!
Supernatural is too good for The Emmy!
What's not to love about this episode? It sets up a chain of awesome storylines for the rest of the season. There are still plenty of mysteries but you know where the show is going. They tell you things now, and you have something to look forward to. You know you will get answers. This season is set to be the best season of Supernatural and this is how tv shows should be written!
Looking for God? Eric Kripke is God! Good God Y'all was epic-ly awesome!
"Not sure he trusts himself anymore, Sam decides to give up hunting, but a late-night visitor (guest star Adrianne Palicki aka Jessica) won’t let him off the hook that easily. Dean, intent on stopping the Apocalypse, continues hunting on his own and teams up with Castiel to find the Archangel Raphael, as Castiel believes Raphael knows God’s location. Episode is written by Jeremy Carver and directed by J. Miller Tobin."

Great find ladies! Thanks for posting!
I know this is not proper English, but I WOW-ed a few times while watching the season five premier. There are a lot of big and little things I like about this episode.
Previously on Supernatural..
How good was the ‘Previously on..’?! It’s beyond words how excited I was to see the ‘Previously on..’ You see the journey of the brothers, Castiel, Bobby, demons and angels. And so quickly, you are transported to the mother of all “oh crap!’ moment. HE IS HERE.
New title card
It’s not official until you see the new Supernatural title card. It was awesome! There’s blood on a light background. I think it’s probably the first time they use a lighter background instead of black.
Brotherly love (not really)
How are you supposed to react if you are the big brother, and your little brother screwed up. You know you are supposed to stop it from happening, but crap happened anyway.
Dean was surprisingly gentle with Sam at the beginning of the episode. But you know one of them is going to break. In the end, Dean was honest about his feeling. Dean was completed heard broken about the fact that Sam chose to believe Ruby than his own brother and he told Sam that he didn’t trust him anymore. While I thought it was a great scene, it was too sad!! Will Dean forgive and forget eventually?
“This is a little trick I learnt from my friend Cas.” Dean
Since the start of the episode, I kept asking myself WHERE THE HELL IS CASTIEL!? Castiel has the best entrance in this episode. I think it’s probably the first time he won a fight since.. since.. ah… since.. humm…. It’s like Castiel has his mojo back or something. He spoke without fear. He was confident. He is the angel we all want.
In last season, Castiel was a very powerful character in the first 2 episodes he appeared in, but his attitude changed a little as the season progressed. There were moments where Castiel was afraid, he became less and less powerful in a way. But in Sympathy for the devil, it’s like he is back and he kicks asses!
A solid list of cast members
How awesome was the cast?
Starting with the prophet Chuck (played by Rob Benedict), who is so funny to watch. He is so serious in a way, but it’s just funny! I love Chuck!
And then we have Uncle Bobby (played by Jim Beaver) entered the episode with the Impala. It’s the first time we see Bobby driving the Impala. AH! And he was possessed by a demon. But he was so brave, he stabbed himself with knife when he woke up. Yeah! Go Bobby!
Kurt Fuller’s interpretation of Zachariah was spot on. He is exactly the kind of bad guy the show needs. He’s either good or bad, he is in the grey area, which is strange but awesome at the same time.
Although John Winchester has been dead since the beginning of season 2, but the Gospel of the Winchesters still involved him in some way. There was this moment where I thought HOLY CRAP John has the sword all along?! That’s awesome! In a way, yes, John has the sword… it’s Dean! God I hope they bring JDM back!
Understand the devil 101
Mark Pellegrino made a quiet but good introduction to the show. He is a great actor, I’ve seen him in Dexter and Lost, he always creeps me out. So when I heard that he will play Lucifer, I know he will do a creepy good job.
I think his character/ performance is right where the writers want him to be in the first episode. Pellegrino is not Lucifer yet in this episode. He plays Nick, who is a quiet, sad and helpless victim who lost his family. He is wondering why horrible things happen to him and his family. He is vulnerable and the devil takes advantage of it. The scene between Nick and Lucifer was slow but I think it’s a necessary ‘understanding Lucifer 101’. I think we can also expect a similar scene with a similar tone for Dean and God (or Michael) when they meet later in the series.
I like it when I see bad guys on TV or movies, they sometimes see themselves as the victims and they think they are doing this for good cause. It’s so intriguing to see how one turns bad (I guess this is why I enjoy watching characters like Anakin Skywalker or Lex Luther turn dark side.)
I expect once Lucifer takes his body, Pellegrino will excel. I can’t wait to see him playing off Jensen and Jared, and see the chemistry. Give it time, I think we’ll see good things from Pellegrino. The devil returns in episode 5.03 Free to be you and me.
The general needs a body. A dang good one!
I am loving the ‘Dean as a Michael’s sword’ twist. I think it makes sense that if Lucifer needs a vessel, Michael will also need a vessel. But I don’t see Dean agreeing to let Michael take over his body. We’ll wait and see.
Supernatural fandom raised a little hell on Twitter
This is a blog worthy story! Supernatural fans were promoting the show on Twitter hours leading up to the season premier with hashtags such as #luciferiscoming and #supernatural. Basically, the more Twitter users use these hashtags, the higher chance they become trending topics in real time. Trending topics are hottest topics or words people mention on Twitter in real time.
So anyway, fans took over Twitter for a short period of time, #luciferiscoming was the number one trending topic and #supernatural came second. You can see a screen shot here.
If you don’t know about the show, you will freak out when you see ‘Lucifer is coming’. No doubt some people actually thought the end of the world was really coming or they thought there were devil worshippers on Twitter. P Diddy actually retaliated with #Godissphere without knowing the real reasons behind our hastags. It’s a TV show you idjit! It’s a show about good versus evil.
So Twitter took the #luciferiscoming off the trending topic, and I think at one stage they took #supernatural off too. After a little investigation, Twitter reinstated #Supernatural and fans started using tags like #inkripkewetrust and #pddidyisscaredofhistv. Misha Collins was such a good sport by challenging Diddy to a competition involving eating cupcakes while riding horseback. We love you Misha!
That’s just funny. You can read all about it here.
Whoever is going to a Supernatural convention, please ask Krikpe what he thinks about this!
The TV rating
Supernatural scored a 3.39m rating for its season 5 premiere. It also scored its best women 18-34 (1.7/5) and women 18-49 (1.7/5) ratings since January 2009. Source: Eclipse Magazine, who also provided an excellent review of the episode. More professional than an amateur like me.
Overall, although Sympathy for the devil might not be as great as Lazarus Rising, it’s like this is only part 1 of 2. But it is still a great episode. I just want more. I’d give this episode 4 out of 5 pies.
12 September 2009
In the meantime, here is the TV promo and 3 sneak preview clips of next week's episode: Good God Y'all (air Thursday 17 Sept on the CW). Welcome back Ellen, Jo and Rufus.

What they find is a town overrun by a new breed of demons, some old friends - and a past that continues to haunt them. Also stars Misha Collins as ‘Castiel’ and guest stars Samantha Ferris as ‘Ellen Harvelle,’ Alona Tal as 'Jo Harvelle,' and Titus Welliver as ‘Roger.’ Episode written by Sera Gamble and directed by Phil Sgriccia.
TWO DEAN WINCHESTERS? Sam tells Dean he wants to rejoin Dean in the battle of the Apocalypse, but Dean tells Sam that they are better off apart. Later, Dean awakens five years in the future in an abandoned city and is attacked by humans who have been infected with a demonic virus that turns humans into Zombies. Zachariah (guest star Kurt Fuller) appears to Dean and explains that this is the world that exists as a result of Dean saying no to helping the angels fight Lucifer. Dean meets up with Future Dean, who tells him that the virus is the Devil's endgame for destroying mankind.

10 September 2009
If you are on Twitter, you should know that the Supernatural fandom is rocking Twitterverse with the following trending topics: #luciferiscoming #supernatural. See a screen shot of my Twitter page here.
I am so excited! I don't know what to do! So I am going to join the party with my Twitter friends.
Having said that, I am still on lock-down. And I am doing well!!! I can do it. Yes I can!
I was just browsing through the news today, I love how journalists write about Supernatural and tell us that they didn't get into the show before.. and now that they do, THEY LOVE IT. I think that's how most people started with the show. THEY JUST LOVE IT! Like me, my uncle was telling me how great the show was back in season one! And I totally ignore him for 2 years! Sorry uncle!
So anyway, looks like Brian K Hoover is ready for the apocalypse! Read his article here.

First look at Lucifer, played by Mark Pellegrino.
Airlock Alpha has this awesome headline today: Forget Jensen Ackles, the heartthrob is Jim Beaver. Jim! You are awesome.
IESB posted a fresh new interview with Misha Collins. Misha talked about Castiel who has been laid-off from Heaven, and now collecting unemployment. He also talked about Cas's power. If Cas breaks your finger, he wouldn't be able to magically heal it anymore. For more weird stuff directly from Misha himself, become one of us (Misha minions) and follow him on Twitter.
IESB also has an interview with Jim Beaver.
The Charlotte Observer has this pretty good write-up about season five. Supernatural is really getting good press so far.
SFX has a small article on the show. I'll find time to scan it this weekend. Here is a crap photo from my photo =)
There are two new tie-in novels which will be released next year. Supernatural: Heart of the Dragon is written by Keith R.A. DeCandido, it is scheduled to release on Feb 16, 2010. You can pre-order this from Amazon. Heart of the Dragon will feature all three generations of the Winchester (and the Campbell). Keith has a website here. The second one is Supernatural: Dark History is written by Joe Schreiber. This is scheduled for release on April 20, 2010. You can also pre-order it from Amazon.

06 September 2009
I set some rules for myself this season, I will watch TV promos, read articles, synopsis and casting news and other news. But one thing I will not do is to watch the sneak previews. You know, one of those 2-3 mins clips of the actual episode. They are as evil as Lucifer! Having said that, I will still post the sneak previews on my blog =)
So, here we go. This is the TV promo of Sympathy of the Devil:
For the three clips of Sympathy of the Devil:
Sympathy of the Devil was written by the evil genius himself Eric Kripke and directed by Robert Singer. Returning characters in this episode include Misha Collins as Castiel, Jim Beaver as Bobby, Kurt Fuller as Zachariah, Mark Pellegrino as Nick, Rachel Miner as Meg, Rob Benedict as Chuck and the '67 Chevrolet Impala.
05 September 2009
Although I am not as addictive with the show like I am with Supernatural, I have been hearing talks about the new suit and I am getting a bit curious. Here is a pic.
Promo of the season premier Savior:
Smallville season 9 premier on Friday September 25 on the CW.
Another show I am semi-excited about is Stargate Universe. I really hope that this is as good as SG1 and SGA. I love these shows and again, I really hope SGU is as good.
The series premier of Stargate Universe will air on Syfy on October 2nd.
Check out SGU Exec Producer Joe Mallozzi's blog on Syfi and on Wordpress.
