Review: Supernatural 7.15 Repo Man

He said "shut up?"
Ben Edlund always delivers. His Repo Man did not disappoint. I for one, love Ben Edlund's scripts. His funny episodes are super funny and his dark episodes are really dark. Ben has been presenting some really challenging ideas to the fans ever since he joined the show -- reality TV show; UFO and fairies; alternate reality where Dean and Sam are Jensen and Jared; and a POV episode (not the usual Supernatural way of story telling and if there is a POV episode, you'd think it should be from Dean's or Sam's POV, right? But having a Cas POV episode was super awesome!!) Edlund's ideas are like...you've seen them somewhere before, but there is always something very Edlund and Supernatural about it. I think Ghost Facers is kinda iconic, don't you think? While Repo Man may not be one of the most iconic episodes Edlund has ever written for the show, but I think the story is very subtle.

One of the highlights of Repo Man is the return of Lucifer. I am certain that I am not the only one who love to see Pellegrino as Lucifer again. That guy can't do no wrong. I've always loved him but his performance in season seven is really growing on me and he has been amazing. We didn't really get to see a whole lot of Lucifer in season five, he only appeared in mytho heavy episodes. But season seven goes outside the square, beyond the wall (whatever) -- what if Lucifer is finally playing the role he should all along i.e. the devil on Sam's shoulder on a daily basis? With the way he's been toying with Sam, the way he's been acting, the way he's been talking to him…there is something very real about this Lucifer.

Sam's hallucination of Lucifer has been an occurring theme in season seven. Stuff like that don't just go aways and get write-off. Lucifer was bagging for attention, and that was funny to watch. Cruel but funny! Lucifer revealed that Sam "hasn't been talking to him" for awhile. So Sam was seeing Lucifer all this time? Sam has been acting pretty ok in the last few episodes, he pulled a couple of good rescues, saved his big brother. Sam's injured hand has almost healed, unless he rips his hand open to the bone, there won't be any pain he could borrow to make Lucifer go away. It's an internal struggle Sam will live with and deal with for the rest of his life. Emotional torture is not fun! Sorry Sam! And Dean is not going to like when he finds out Sam's been talking to his imaginary friend from hell and getting advice from him. What will happen next?

I love how Edlund used the Jeffrey story to underpin Sam's situation. Before you say anything, I am not comparing Sam and Jeffrey, they are NOT the same, Jeffrey is SICK, Sam is a hero. But they both let the devil in. Jeffrey is one sick guy. Like Dean said, "Demons, I get, people are just crazy". Jeffrey likes being possessed because the demon actually gives him strength. WTF?! For Sam, I think he knows that Lucifer is just a hallucination, he will continue to ignore him, occasionally may he tell Lucifer to shut up, and Lucifer will continue to make him see things, but by interacting with the devil in any ways, Sam is letting him in. But this is like Harry and Voldermont -- they had similarities, but Harry was different because of the choices he made. So it's up to Sam. It's always up to Sam.

We have a bit of a debate on Twitter after watching Repo Man. I am a sucker for the details. Let me be! My question was -- did the flashback take us back to season three or four? I think it was season four.

According to the synopsis and on a various review, Repo Man took us back to four years ago when Dean and Sam exorcised a demon from Jeffrey. Don't forget Dean's gap year took place between season five and six. In terms of the maths, Repo Man flashed the story back to season four.


The brothers didn't know too much about Lilith back in season three, they didn't even know Lilith held Dean's contract until Bela revealed that in Time Is On My Side. They weren't actively looking for Lilith but they were desperately looking for a way for get Dean out of the demon deal. So it doesn't make sense if the torture happened in season three.

During the interrogation in Repo Man, Dean and Sam wanted to locate Lilith's lieutenant because they wanted to know where Lilith was. Dean and Sam started looking for Lilith in season four because Castiel told them she was breaking seals to get Lucifer out. The brother picked up their pace towards the end of season four because Lilith was breaking seals fast. They were tricked into believing Lilith was the only one who could break the final seal, she must be killed. The boys were desperate, they were running out of time, they needed information on the location of Lilith. It just makes sense to me that the torture of Jeffrey as seen in Repo Man fitted into the season four arc more.

Does it really matter? Probably not.. LOL. It's just me..

I think Repo Man is going to be one of those episodes that will grow on me over time. It is not as intense as I expected but that's ok, because my heart can't take intensity lately. I am stress enough as is!

Supernatural won't return until Friday March 16. SHIT! What's up with the multi-hiatus lately? I really can't wait for the next episode -- Out With the Old. Three words -- Misha Friggin Collins!

Synopsis: DOUBLE TROUBLE — After a ballerina is found dead from dancing herself to death, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) look into the case and discover the ballet slippers she wore were cursed.  When Dean accidentally touches the shoes the power of the curse starts to take hold of him. John Showalter directed the episode written by Robert Singer & Jenny Klein.

My Next Supernatural Convention - Chicago (October 26-28, 2012)

Supernatural Convention....the Chicago Way!
It's done and done and done! After a very disappointing foreplay with #Nashcon due to change of date (which I understand), I have finally confirmed my schedule for Creation Entertainment: Salute to Supernatural Convention (#ChiCon)in Chicago on October 26-28, 2012. I pray to Chuck, please don't change dates again, I can't take no more disappointment!

After LACon last year, I tried so hard to schedule my next trip. I thought it'd be nice to go to another location, I looked at major locations such as Vancouver and Dallas, but they just don't fit into my schedule. Chicago was shortlisted and I finally worked out my dates! I cannot wait to go to the Windy City. Chicago -- Death's favorite city! And he is going to be there! It's a little creepy, but I really want a photo op with Julian Richings. I won't miss this! And I will definitely give Rob Benedict a hug!

Here is the list of guests so far:

Jensen Ackles
Jared Padalecki
Misha Collins
Jim Beaver
Richard Speightt Jr
Matt Cohen
Kim Rhodes
Julian Richings
Rachel Miner
Rob Benedict

I wonder if they will announce more guest.. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to hug Mark Pellegrino. I mean.. the guy is a legend! He has been on half the shows I love -- Lost, Chuck, Supernatural, Being Human, Dexter (yes, I do watch Dexter, but I don't talk about it.) Please be there! Oh, and I'd love to see Guy Bee or Ben Edlund there.. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE?! You bet I will give you a full report THE LOT! Watch this space!

I swear if no one organise a convention for fans to worship Eric Kripke, I would!

Random Thursday Edition - Supernatural; Misha Collins on Ringer; Arrow; Glee; New Girl

Is it Friday yet?
Friday is coming. Not only we get another episode of Supernatural, we get Mark Friggin Pellegrino! I love this man! I am so intrigued by what he is about to do in the episode, the synopsis looks pretty intense and it's written by Ben Edlund. I can see no wrong there! Ben always delivers! I cannot wait!

The CW stopped doing the Producer Preview for awhile and in the recent months, they started doing it again. But I don't want to watch it, just to avoid any spoilers. But if you are keen, you can watch Bob Singer's clip on SpoilerTV. Is it just me or he looked like Harrison Ford?

Speaking of the CW, the network pulls Secret Circle repeats for Supernatural. There will be two encore episodes of Supernatural The Slice Girls and Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie after The Vampire Diaries on Feb 23 and March 1 (Thursdays). This means, after this week's Repo Man, Supernatural won't return with a new episode until March 9 with 7.16 Out With The Old. That's the plan anyway... Don't we hate the mini hiatus? Anyway, it's good to see Supernatural on their old time slot -- Thursdays 9pm. Source KSiteTV

After Mark Pellegrino's appearance, I am SUPER EXCITED to see Misha Collins again on Supernatural. I think it's been a bit too long since we saw him, I mean...I certainly didn't expect NOT to see him again on the show. Speaking of Misha, he is going to be on Ringer, which is returning to Australia on Monday night. I cannot wait to see Misha on Ringer. TVOvermind has posted a clip of Misha's appearance on Ringer 1.14 Whores Don't Make That Much. I haven't been watching Ringer since it went on a break here before Xmas. It's one of those shows I'll only watch it if it's on TV here. It's ok, I like it. I think Buffy is doing a great job!

HOT Misha is HOT! He is due to come back to Supernatural for 7.17 The Born-Again Identity. E!Online has a spoiler on his return. He is not coming back with on pants on! Oh wait...what?

DC or Smallville fans are familiar with Black Canary (Dinah 'Laurel' Lance) The role was previously played by Alaina Huffman (Stargate Universe). Although it didn't happen in Smallville, Black Canary was like Green Arrow's girlfriend in the comic. So, expect romance or whatever there in CW's new show Arrow. Katie Cassidy has been cast to play Dinah 'Laurel' Lance aka Black Canary. I am getting excited about this show! I hope this will succeed Smallville's place on the CW, and continue to capture DC fans or someone like me who just want to watch a good sci-fi show. Details of Katie's casting can be read on TVLine. I like Katie, I thought her 'Ruby' was great on Supernatural, the original and the best!

You guys know Matt Bomer, right? RIGHT! I know him as Bryce Larkin on Chuck, I have seen may be half an episode of White Collar. Matt Bomer will appear on Glee as Blaine's brother and they are going to sing Duran Duran. SHIT! That's hot and I don't even listen to Duran Duran. Broadway.com has a report on this. Blaine has become my favourite character on Glee. I used to not have a favorite, I mean, I think Rachel is great singer, but I didn't really have a favorite. But now, Blaine has taken the crown, I like the fact that Darren Criss is doing more numbers and he is good.. he is really good! This guy is freakishly talented! I am so glad he is on the show!

Oh and...Matt, I always knew!

Finally, I am falling in love with New Girl. I love Zooey Deschanel. I was watching 500 Days of Summer on the weekend and Here Comes Your Man by Pixies has been on repeat on my iPad. Man! How did I miss this before? I've only seen her in...wait for it...Tin Man. I know! Hey, I like that show! She is one of those actress you won't get sick of watching because her characters are so different from other female roles in the chic-flicks genre and she is so likable in New Girl. I found myself laughing so hard last week while watching the show. Love her!

I need a lot of hugs in coming weeks, real life does suck! I am on a few big projects and I am as calm as Captain Picard, but when people around you start freaking out and panic about anything and everything, I am like.. CHILL DUDES.. Go away and take your negativity with you. A big change is coming. I just want my life back.

Review: Supernatural 7.14 Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie

Are we having fun yet? Clowns, Unicorns, Octovamp, Vamptapus, Dractopus, Deabiscuit the Impaler, Land Shark, Ballwasher and Slinky.. And the AWESOME opening title! Oh my!

I love Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie in a crazy sort of a way. A few minutes into the episode I tweeted that I loved this already! For those who know me, know that I love 24. So as you can imagine, I was having the biggest fangirl moment, screaming, jumping up and down, doing crazy dance when I saw the 24-like countdown clock. DEAN FRIGGIN WINCHESTER IS MY JACK FRIGGN BAUER. (Whatever that means…). I have no idea why the creative team would inject the 24 countdown clock but I LOVE it!

I love Sam's clown thing. I love how Dean made fun of Sam's fear of clown and I love how Dean comforted him by saying “Just know that 99.99 percent of all clowns can’t hurt you.” *roll eyes* (Sorry Sammy, but the 00.01 percent of clowns can beat the crap out of you. I love that Dean was unbelievably great with kids! Because he never treat them like kids, I think Dean treated them like equal and talked to them as if he was talking to little Sammy.

I love how Sam was having some serious fear of clowns and he wouldn't go anywhere near any clowns in any shapes or forms. I love Sam'd gone all Mystery Spot-y on interrogated the suspects. Holy Crap! Only Sam could interrogate the 3rd-Rock-from-the-Sun-Joseph-Gordon-Levitt-look-a-like Clif the Lion with a straight face like that! Sam couldn't wait to finish this job and get the hell away from clowns!

It's great to see the brothers working on a case like this. I certainly wasn't expecting this episode to be this funny. I think writers Andrew Dabb and Daniel Loflin really knocked it out of the park. I know I am not the biggest fan of their scripts, hey I have my reasons! But I think they've found a voice in this episode. The inappropriately funny dialogues, the story, the humor, the pop-culture references, Dabb and Loflin have not done one thing wrong here. They should stick to this type of episodes! Is it just me or do you see Dabb and Loflin can so write a Hangover-like episode for Supernatural? Keep up the good work guys!

This episode was directed by Mike Rohl, who directed some of my favourite episodes of Supernatural (such The Usual Suspects, Folsom Prison Blues, My Bloody Valentine and Appointment in Samarra) and of Smallville (such as Rabid, Arrow and Bizarro). I love his work! According to producer Jim Michaels on Twitter, the basement scene in this episode was shot underneath the stages used by Smallville for 10 years! I even love all the references around this episode! The pipes reminded me of Committed, where Lois was kidnapped and Clark went to save her (arh… what's wrong with this description…) Oh how much do I want Tom Welling or Eric Durance to be a guess star on Supernatural!

Back to the episode! I really really enjoy this episode. And the ending was perfect and the brotherly moment was gold! Seeing Dean laughing at Sam was hilarious! When was the last time we saw Dean laughing like this? Since he took Cas to the brothel?

What I love about season seven is that when Dean is in trouble, Sam is always there, more so than before. I know they are always there for each other no matter what. But I think Sam is really looking out for his big brother now! Dean is going through some tough time emotionally because of the death of close friends Bobby and Cas (*cough cough*). He is probably in a much worst state of mind now than in season three where he had some serious attitude issues in dealing with his demon deal and his own death, and in season four when he was emotionally damaged because of what he did in hell. Having gone through some tough crazy time himself, it's great, it's just great to see Sam looking out for Dean. And I love that about Sam. That's what family is all about, right!?

Next episode is going to be pretty intense. With the return of [SPOILER], it could only mean one thing -- poor Sammy! This guy can't have a break, can't he! Rapo Man is written by my hero Ben Edlund and directed by Thomas J.Wright. Here is the synopsis:

DOUBLE TROUBLE — Four years ago, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) helped a woman named Nora (guest star Nicole Oliver) exorcise a demon that was systematically killing women in a small town. They managed to save the postal worker, Jeffrey (guest star Russell Sams), while vanquishing the demon but now it seems the black-eyed monster has reared his ugly head and returned for a second helping. The brothers visit Jeffrey, who has been locked in a psych ward since the incident, to see if he can remember any of the demon’s plans while he was possessed.

I am going to find time to rewatch Mark Pellegrino on Lost this week.

Jon Favreau Joins Team Kripke/Abrams for NBC's Revolution

Sorry, I am a bit late for the party.. I brought the suit!
Jon Favreau has been tapped to direct the pilot of NBC's Revolution as reported by Deadline.

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am. I was on the bus this morning, minding my own business and checking tweets, and BAM there it was -- the headline! I thought I was dreaming...or something...(as I've been only having a few hours sleep at night...I think it's work related.) The director choice was totally unexpected! I mean...Jon 'Happy' Favreau!? I think he has just completed the perfect formula for TV for the next decade...

J.J Abrams + Eric Kripke + Happy = AWESOMESS!

What are they going to tell us next? That Tom Welling is gonna be in it? (No.. I just made that up...) but you know what I mean? Like...I don't think the cast will be disappointing. I know this is too early to tell and I am just being a crazy fangirl about it, but Revolution has EPICNESS written all over it. If there is one project that has the potential to be the next Lost, this is IT!

Favreau has a comedy pilot in the works called Tweaked. Of course, Kripke and Abrams have like eleven projects on their plates. What if they all get picked up? OMFG!

Can you imagine the three of them together on stage in Hall B at Comic Con?

Give me Revolution NOW!

Kripke's Revolution - My Two Cents

You bet your size 6 ass he can deliver!

Already branded as the "highly anticipated" one, Revolution has attracted some really interesting initial analysis. I read this article which focuses on whether NBC is the right place for the show; what kind of rating it needs to stay alive, and what if another picks it up etc.. Like I said.. interesting!

It's a bit tense to start thinking about all that, but I guess when you create a TV show, these are the elements the executive team and the network have to consider. And these are the things critics start asking.. Pitching a great story for a TV show is one thing, building a business case is another.

Will Revolution deliver in terms of story and rating? J.J Abrams does not make crap. Eric Kripke does not make crap. If Abrams is going to do what he did on Lost, you bet Kripke and Bryan Burk will do a Damon Lindelof-Bryan Bur-Jack Bender. I think the series' fate lies in the hands of Kripke and Burk -- we are talking about their team dynamic, the story, the writers, the cast and of course rating. Revolution could potentially become the next Lost in terms of scale and epic-ness. I think this is the only way to stay alive on a network like NBC -- GO BIG.. LIKE LOST BIG!

I, for one, hope to see at least one full season and a Hall H appearance at Comic Con (yeah, I know Hall H is a bit ambitious). I would hate to see another The Cape or ... is there a shorter-lived show?

Good luck guys!

Review: Supernatural 7.13 The Slice Girls

Caption this!
Supernatural returned this week with a solid episode. The Spice Girls, featuring Monster Baby Spice, is essentially about the Amazon women's mating season, they hunt rich successful men (wow, at lease they have standards), they mate, they get pregnant, their daughters grow like weeds, and then they kill their birth fathers. War, what is good for?… The story evolves..

Wait.. hold on for a damn second…........

Aces, Dean. (or not)
DEAN HAD SEX! It's about time he gets laid, but poor Dean, it turned out to be a bit of a boo-boo, didn't? It was actually sad, like.. he was used. Damn you woman! But hey, gratuitous fanservice.. what can I say? We are very selfless fans. And yeah.. his tattoo is still there!

Now, where were we?

Sam enjoys poking fun at Dean's fatherhood more than he should. Did Dean made fun of Sam's marriage with Becky?
The Slice Girls was written by Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner. They also wrote for this season's Shut Up Dr Phil. I think The Slice Girls was a better script, Ross-Leming and Buckner were given the opportunity to inject the emotional aspects, which I like. This episode was also Jerry Wanek's directorial debut. I think Jerry did a great job with his shots, direction and for some weird reasons, I really like the pace of the story more than I should.

With Emma Winchester (HOLY SHIT I CANNOT BELIEVE I JUST TYPED THIS… I SWEAR ANYONE MENTION THIS AGAIN I WILL START THROWING PUNCHES), The Slice Girls was technically a Winchester family episode. But really.. like 99% of it, wasn't. Thank God Sam was in the right state of mind, I love Sammy in this episode. He saved Dean's life. He didn't hesitate to take the shot and kill his niece (HOLY SHIT.. AGAIN..I CANNOT BELIEVE I JUST TYPED THIS… I SWEAR ANYONE MENTION THIS AGAIN I WILL START THROWING PUNCHES). But Sam had to and I am so glad he did. And what's more, I am glad Dean saw the whole thing, he was hoping Sam to show up, deep down he wanted Sam to do it.

Dean is a man of principle. He doesn't just go around killing monsters and people because he can. Dean didn't kill Amy Pond's son, because he was still a kid and he hadn't kill anyone yet, so Dean let him live. Dean made it clear that the moment he killed people, he'd find him! So, the same principle was applied here, Emma hadn't killed anyone, so Dean asked her to walk away. It wasn't like Dean and Emma really bonded and had a father-daughter moment or if Dean had a soft heart (ok may be a little), but he almost had no reason to waste her with her just standing there messing with his mind. If she made a move to attack Dean or killed someone already, Dean had a reason to kill her. Both Sam and Dean knew she'd kill eventually, and I am glad Sam made an executive decision to kill her. A reasonable ending.

Due to recent events of Bobby's death and Cas' assumed death, it really hit Dean hard and he has been demonstrating a lack of self-belief and confidence. I love what Sam said at the end of the episode, "Just don't get killed." Sam realises Dean wasn't in the right state of mind, and he had to keep remind his big brother -- no matter how down you are, just don't get killed!! Pull yourself together and let's put a plan together to get rid of the Leviathans!

It could be anyone.. Bobby, Cas, Ellen, Jo... Ruby.
I really like the mystery behind the magical appearance of the parchment. It makes sense if it was Bobby, his body was burnt but if he didn't go with the Reaper, so his spirit could still be around to help the boys. There is another theory, I was having a discussion with my friends on Twitter that, seeing Cas is returning soon, perhaps it was him who helped the boys? It's a possibility. But my money is on Bobby.. OK.. may be $7 on Bobby, and $3 on Cas.

Sam enjoys doing the catwalk more than he should.
I think the boys were really sharp in this episode, don't you think? It's like Dean really had a investment banker suit on. That actually looks like a new suit and tie.

I swear Sam is using a Mac. I am 99% sure!
Here is Zap2it's Interview with Jared and Jensen.. they talked about stuff.

Next week's episode looks so much fun!!! I am excited!

Eric Kripke & J.J Abrams -- Up-Coming Projects Including 'Revolution'

Eric Kripke's Revolution (the pilot) has been greenlit by NBC. Kripke is joined by J.J Abrams and Bryan Burk as Executive Producers. A short description has surfaced on a few websites:
“In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever.”
Craveonline also mentioned that Deadman the TV series which Kripke is currently tied to as well, may also get a pilot. The CW has picked up a few pilot recently, but Deadman is not on the list, yet. The interesting thing is, J.J Abrams is also producing other pilots for other TV networks including Shelter, its pilot has already been picked up by the CW. Speculation is that should Revolution and/ or Shelter get picked up as a series, we will see them in Fall 2012. Read the full article on Craveonline.

Just how many projects is J.J Abrams currently involved? Let's see...

Star Trek Sequel (movie, director/ exec producer)
Cloverfield (movie, exec producer)
Alcatraz (TV, exec producer)
Person of Interest (TV, exec producer)
Fringe (TV, exec producer)
Revolution (TV, exec producer)
Shelter (TV, exec producer)

That's seven known projects including movies and TV series (am I missing any others?). I am beginning to think that he is a machine... I mean.. does the guy sleep? I mean, even if he is the creator of the above TV shows and exec produces them and let others to be the showrunners, he still needs to be involved. He will direct and write a few episodes at least, right? I gotta say, I am a huge fan of Lost, I love what JJ does, I love his ideas! But the only project I truly care about is Revolution and Kripke's other baby Deadman, I hope it gets pick up for a season!  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE?!!!!??!!

Kripke is SUPER busy too. Apart from Revolution and Deadman, he is still involved as the consultant producer for Supernatural. And he is also the writer and director for the movie, Haunted. If 'Kripke' is a religion, I will go to church for him every Sunday.

Third Wave TV - Can We Have a Supernatural Channel?

So, I was doing research the other day and came across an article about YouTube's vision of the future of entertainment -- YouTube exec: We're heading for 'third wave' of TV. Salar Kamangar, Google's Video Head, talked about 'gamification' (which is a bit of a hot, hit & miss term) and YouTube's plan on becoming the platform of the next generation of channels.

The way I understand is that it will strive to become a 'fan-centric channel'. It's all about taking 'audience participation' to the next level! Like taking SimCity to a whole new level of crazy! So here it goes, the article says:
"The first wave refers to broadcast networks (few options, huge audiences), and the second to cable channels (hundreds of options, each with smaller audiences)."
Kamangar explained the third wave as "smaller groups of people gravitate toward thousands of niche channels".

So if we have a Supernatural Channel, is it like... having my avatar at the front seat of the Impala with other avatars and we watch Dean having sex in the back seat? And we get to kill Ruby? And hug Dean and Sam? And bring back Bobby and Cas? Time travel, Dr Sexy's Sing-Along-Blog.. the whole nine yards?

In other news......

I don't like it very much, but I can do the maths.. 2 more days to all new Supernatural. Slice Girls is getting fangirls and guys excited. That's right Dean's gonna get some and it will be nasty. But I say, if they are monsters, KILL THEM! But poor Deano!

Following from the previous post about Green Arrow, the actor who plays the title role has been named! Stephen Amell is his name, his acting credits include The Vampire Diaries and Hung, which I have not seen any of them. He looked the part! For those who have seen and loved Smallville and Justin Hartley as Green Arrow/ Oliver Queen, they will either love it or hate. Just like people always compare all the Bruce Waynes and Peter Parkers. But I'll keep an open mind and check out this bad boy! For more news on Green Arrow the TV series, check out KSite for details.

Let's be realistic, Supernatural won't run forever like Days of Our Lives, so the CW will need shows to replace it. These new shows have BIG SHOES to fill. So we will wait and see who will be the winners.. and losers.
