Supernatural, Meet The New Boss-My Thoughts

So here we are. The premiere of Supernatural, season 7.

Now, I wasn't at all a fan of season 6, so I was really looking forward to this episode.

Holy hell, it didn't disappoint. BEST  Supernatural premiere, ever!

Misha Collins is ah-frickin-mazing. His performance in this episode was absolutely flawless.

Cas standing in the meadow, talking to his angels, "You need a Father". The camera pulls back and we see him surrounded by dead angels. GREAT shot!

But really, Cas smiting hypocritical preachers, KKK members and motivational speakers? Then curing leprosy and blindness? Um, not seeing anything wrong here. :P

Hallucinating Sam? *sigh*
Is anyone else getting tired of the problems that surround the boys? Dean goes to hell, Dean comes back from hell, Sam goes to hell, Sam comes back from hell, Sam is soulless, Sam's wall falls...
Let someone else have a turn for God's Castiel's sake! ;)

Ah, Mark Sheppard. How I love thee.
How hilarious was Crowley living in a trailer park, surrounded by symbols that didn't help? LOL!
And when he was preparing for the smiting, with his arms up and eyes closed? Crowley, you so funny!

How awesome was it to see Death again? Dean sure does know how to please him! Fried pickle chips as an offering? Good job, Dean!
Great scene between Cas and Death!

And what a nice guy, that Death. He tells the boys how to get rid of the souls AND he makes another eclipse for them. Aww, he has a soft spot for those Winchesters.

Crazy-Cas was so disturbing to watch. The camera work during the slaughter scene was seriously creepy!

In the end, Cas comes home to the only family he knows after Sam calls. He just wants to be forgiven. So sad. :(

I really, really enjoyed this episode and I'm looking forward to next week for sure!

Best lines from the episode:
"Trench-coat on a tortilla?"-Bobby

"He was young and sexy. He wore a raincoat."- Church Lady


"I just pray to God it's true."-Dean
"We need to come up with a new saying for that."-Bobby

"You giraffe."-Crowley

"Excuse me, you got any grey poupon?" -Dean

"I found the God-thingy." -Dean

"Because we said so and we're the boss of you."-Dean

"You can't kill us. Death is our bitch."-Dean

"I know God. You, sir, are no God."-Death

"Asian cartoon porn."-Dean

"Hi, Sam. Long time, no spooning."-Lucifer

"I really over-reached."-Cas
"Ya think?"-Dean

Questions to be answered:

Where is Sam?!
Is Cas really dead?
What, exactly, IS a Leviathan?
Is Lucifer our of the cage, or is Sam hallucinating?
Where is God?

Once More, With Feeling

I've mentioned before that I'm taking part in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer rewatch on the amazingly talented Nikki Stafford's blog, Nik at Night.

This week was Once More, With Feeling...My favourite Buffy episode.

Nikki and her fellow rewatch contributors put on an AMAZING  show for this rewatch! You can see it all over on her blog, but I thought I'd post a sneak peek here for you.

Here's Nikki doing, 'Previously, on the Buffy Rewatch'.

Now, I only discovered Buffy in the last year or so, because of Nikki Stafford and her blog.
It's quickly become one of my favourite shows.

If you haven't seen it, go...RUN...and buy the whole series. I promise you won't regret it. Joss Whedon is a genius and must be worshiped!

And even if you've never seen Buffy or OMWF, you really should head over to Nikki's blog and watch the videos. You'll laugh your ass off, I swear!

Doctor Who, Closing Time--My Thoughts

Well then. Let's start at the beginning, shall we? ;)

The Doctor is wearing his new green coat again. Since 'Let's Kill Hitler', he's worn it only every second episode. Significant?

The Doctor working in a shop? LOVE!

The whole elevator/transporter scene--Hilarious!

'Petrichor perfume. For the girl who's tired of waiting.'

I hope you all remember 'petrichor' from 'The Doctor's Wife'? 'The smell of dust after it rains'. 
Oh, Sexy. You knew it all, didn't you?

And how sad was it when he hid from Amy and Rory. He's so proud of her. *sniffle*

Aww, a wee little Cybermat! 'It's quite cute--AHHHH!"

The Doctor's scene with Stormy in the nursery...How touching and sad was that? Yes, I teared up. :(

And like I'd predicted, 200 years have passed for the Doctor between 'The God Complex' and 'Closing Time'.
I hope one day we get to see some of what he did in those 200 years.

Again, Matt Smith is brilliant. He's so young, but can play someone so old. I just adore him.

And how about the last few scenes at Craig's, huh?
TARDIS blue envelopes? A stetson? Ah, it comes full circle.

The episode itself was fun. The Cybermen plot was severely lacking, but it was fast-paced and the jokes were hilarious and it has all kinds of touching scenes that make me happy.

And now I get to the last ten minutes of 'Closing Time'.

So...River's in the suit, huh? Well, for now, at least? Who knows what Moffat may change before 'The Wedding of River Song' airs? 
Who do I think is in the suit? River, absolutely.

Now let's throw around some wacky theories!

Who is Madame Kovarian? 
Could she be an earlier regeneration of Melody Pond? Possibly even an earlier Melody from a completely different timeline, who, like older-Amy, is pissed at the Doctor because he abandoned her?
Or is she just some crazy-lady working for the Silence?

And, hey, remember Canton Delaware?
Let's look at his name, shall we?

Canton--Italian--Canto. Latin--Cantus

Canto - the highest part (usually the melody) in a piece of choral music.
The word comes from Italian, meaning "song" or singing.

Delaware--A major river on the Atlantic coast of the United States.

So, um...Canton Delaware's name means Song River. Is your mind blown yet?

IS Canton yet another regeneration of Melody??
If so, why did he not try to kill the Doctor in the White House when they 'first' met?

Of course, the name could just be another red herring...right? ;)


What will happen now? The Doctor goes back to Lake Silencio, where it all began. 

And the rest we find out in the finale, 'The Wedding of River Song'.

Here's the prequel for that episode.

And here's the next-time trailer.

It's bittersweet, really. I'm so excited to finally see how it all ends, but I'll miss the show so damn much!

Ah, well...See you all next week!

Fringe Fan Made Video

I had to share this. It's just beautiful! from what I understand, the show-runners saw this and cried, they were so touched!

Fringe: 'Neither Here Nor There'--My Thoughts

Believe it or not, I wasn't a Fringe-watcher until recently. I knew I should be. I knew it was a show I would like. Hell, it's made by the same man who gave us Lost....of course I'd love it!

But I'd just never made the effort...until this summer. I downloaded and caught up on all three season in a matter of weeks, so now I watch alongside everyone else! Hooray!

So, here are my thoughts on the season 4 premiere--

It felt very much like a pilot episode, which I think was the point. There were TONS of nods to the pilot in this episode.

Did you all catch Peter flash in during the exchange between Olivia and Altlivia at the beginning? Whoa!

December says to September that it's their responsibility to make sure events play out as they were intended "before your intervention". Which intervention? When he interrupted Walter from finding a cure for Peter or when he saved Peter from drowning?

Oooh, orange opening!
The list of words in the intro: 

Quantum entanglement
Philosopher's stone 
Viral therapy
Ethereal plane
Time paradox 
Psychic surgery

I'm not even going to pretend I know what most of those mean! ;)

Olivia doesn't know Lincoln. Hmm.
And I like this Lincoln. Yummy geekiness.

How about that new observer with September? Younger than the rest, I think!

This Olivia seems sad and a little colder. More detached...except with Walter. Then her warmth comes out.
On the flip side, Astrid seems more cold towards him, and lacks the patience she used to have with him.
AND she seems to get out in the field more, which I like.

Another glimpse of something that may have been Peter in the lab, after Walter disses Walternate.
I've gone through the scene frame by frame on my HDTV, and to me, it almost looks like it's a quick flash of three different people bleeding through.
It's very blurry and distorted, though, so it may just be Peter. 

Walter's growing an ear again! Ha!

Astrid, "I'm going to, ahh...I'm gonna need to check her anus." LOL!

Poor Walter, hiding in the tank from the man in the mirror. :(

It seems that John died from the toxin...and it seems like Olivia is still in mourning. I'm guessing she didn't get the closure from the consciousness transfer in the deprivation tank.

Anyone notice Olivia wearing color? Blue. Not just black. Another difference.

Walter is also much more sad and quiet. He doesn't have the spunk and humor he usually has. Not knowing Peter has definitely changed everyone!

Holy crap, human shape-shifters?!

LOVED the amazing job they did with the bridge between the worlds. The two different windows...awesome.

Walter, afraid to leave the lab, has made it his home. I just want to hug him! :(

Oooh, September has a change of heart! He cares for Peter! I'm seeing a possible Observer revolt happening in the future!

And then we have Peter on the TV screen.

Peter must be doing something, wherever he is, to find a way home. It has to be his doing, right??

While I enjoyed this episode and I think I can manage a few more without him, I do hope they bring him back soon.

Here's the trailer for 'One Night in October', next weeks episode. It looks AWESOME!

Doctor Who, The God Complex--My Thoughts

Toby Whithouse, you brilliant, brilliant man. Yes, this episode came from the mind of the man that gives us Being Human (UK) and, in my opinion, this outshone anything I've ever seen on Being Human!

Moffat DEFINITELY saved the best for the second half of series 6! WOW!

Okay, so who played 'spot the alien' with the photos on the walls of the hotel? I saw a Silurian, Sontaran, Cat Nun, Judoon and a Tritovore! ;)

Gibbis was fun! "Our Anthem is 'Glory to (insert name here)'". LOL

Did you notice the Rubik's cube from 'Night Terrors'? When he put it into his pocket, it was all a-jumble. When we saw it again on the table after Rita died, it was solved. Significance? It's solved just as the Doctor solves the riddle of the hotel? And, possibly, just as the Doctor decides to solve the problem in his head...that he needs to say goodbye to Amy and Rory?

Amy's room--Number 7. Why? Because Amelia was seven years old when she met the Doctor.
Rory had no room. But why did he speak in the past tense to the Doctor about his fears? "After all the time I spent with you in the TARDIS, what was left to be scared of?"
He had no idea the Doctor would be dropping them off at the end of the episode...He was shocked when the TARDIS leaves without them.
That's obviously significant!
The Doctor's room--Number 11. He is the Eleventh Doctor, after all. ;)
So, what was in there? I have a few guesses...
1) River, in a wedding dress, at the alter.
2) And astronaut, on a beach in Utah.
3) Himself. The Doctor.
4) Young Amelia.
5) The TARDIS, dying.
You do hear the cloister bell ringing when he opens the door to his room.

Did anyone else notice Gibbis eat the fish? Ha!

In Amy's room, her fear. Her young self, waiting....always waiting. Abandoned.
And that scene in her room? The Doctor's speech? Absolutely beautiful. Yes, I cried. Brilliant writing, brilliant directing, and Matt Smith was perfect. Just perfect. He is The Doctor. If you didn't believe before, you have to after that scene.

The parallels between the Minotaur and the Doctor--"You've lived so long even your name is lost."
And the Minotaur's last words? "An ancient creature, drenched in the blood of the innocent, drifting in space through an endless shifting maze. For such a creature, death would be a gift."
Who else knew he wasn't speaking about himself as he was saying the words? Yep, me too. ;)

So, how about that goodbye scene? Pretty sad, right? The Doctor, alone, on the TARDIS. So sad... :(

C'mon! You can't really believe that's the last we'll see of the Ponds, can you? ;)

The next episode, 'Closing Time', is the companion-lite episode (and we see the return of Craig from last seasons, 'The Lodger'!), but you know Amy and Rory will be back for the finale, 'The Wedding of River Song'.
They're there, on that beach in Utah when the astronaut kills the Doctor!

So, in case you couldn't tell, I LOVED this episode. It's right up there with 'The Doctor's Wife', 'The Girl Who Waited' and 'Let's Kill Hitler' for me.

Now, here's a new theory I have hopping around in my brain!

I think that when we next see the Doctor (in 'Closing Time'), 200 years will have passed for him. Wait, bear with me on this! ;)
I think he'll show up at Craig's door to say goodbye...Kind of like Ten did before he regenerated. Eleven is saying goodbye to his friends because he knows it's almost time for him to be killed in the desert.
See, we're seeing everything in order this series from Amy and Rory's point of view.
The Doctor dropped them off at home after 'A Christmas Carol', then the older (200 years) Doctor summons them to the desert and they see him killed.
They then they meet up with the younger (current) Doctor in the diner and go off on their adventures until he returns them to their new house after 'The God Complex'. That Doctor then goes and has 200 years of adventures, dancing with Laurel and Hardy, hiding under a skirt and being chased by the King, being painted naked, tunneling out of prison, etc....And then returns to earth and summons Amy, Rory, River and Canton to his death.

Got all that? LOL

So now...Your thoughts?
What did YOU think of 'The God Complex'?

What I'll Be Watching

If you know me, you know I'm a television addict guru.

This blog won't be completely about TV, but I'm betting it will be mostly about TV. 

So for the interested, here's what I'll be watching (and possibly blogging about) this season!

Twin sisters Bridget and Siobhan (both played by Gellar) have been at odds for the last six years and find that their lives are both unraveling at the same rate. Bridget, a recovering alcoholic and ex-stripper, is on the run from the mob after witnessing a murder. She flees to her twin sister Siobhan's home. The sisters seem to be repairing their broken relationship until Siobhan mysteriously disappears overboard during a boat trip the sisters take together. Bridget soon discovers her sister's seemingly perfect life is full of secrets after she is attacked in Siobhan's future apartment.

Meet Richard Castle: he's a successful murder-mystery writer who has just killed off his main character. However, it seems one of his fans liked his books just a bit too much when a copycat murderer starts running around killing people as described in Castle's books.
After being questioned by the police Richard joins forces with Detective Kate Beckett to solve this case. The two become partners begin working together to solve other murders in New York along with other detectives Javier Esposito, Kevin Ryan and Captain Roy Montgomery. They also work with medical examiner Lanie Parish. Richard's family includes his mother Martha Rodgers, who was a broadway diva and his daughter Alexis.

After a sudden family tragedy, Cassie Blake moves in with her grandmother in Chance Harbor, Washington, the town where her mother lived years before. Cassie quickly starts to learn from her new classmates that there things about her past that she never knew about--like the fact that she and her new friends are all witches, and they want Cassie to join them in creating a new generation of the Secret Circle. As Cassie starts to unlock her new powers, she uncovers a dark side to her abilities and soon comes to realize that with her
knew found destiny comes a level of danger.

Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson), a mysterious billionaire, has developed a computer program that predicts the identity of people connected to violent crimes that will take place in the future. However, the program has its limitations: for example, it cannot predict whether the person will be a victim, perpetrator, or witness, nor can it predict when or where the crime will take place. Unable to stop the crimes on his own, Finch hires John Reese (Jim Caviezel), a former CIA agent who is presumed dead, to help stop the crimes from taking place.

Grey's Anatomy is a medical drama about a group of surgeons working at Seattle Grace Hospital. The show centers around Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and her life as a third year resident at the hospital. In addition to her relationship with her neurosurgeon husband, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), and best friend Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), it also explores her relationships with her peers and the other doctors around her. Each episode dives into different medical cases and personal dramas of the doctors at Seattle Grace, with Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) at the helm of the surgical department. 

How far would you be willing to go to save everyone you care about? In 1985 one father's choice to save his son, no matter the cost, started an inadvertent pattern of destruction. Now Fringe Division, a special unit of the FBI, has been tasked with finding a way to stop the damage. Their investigations into cases of science run amok have uncovered connections not only to their own past but to an alternate universe just slightly different than our own that threatens our very future.

The show begins in the year 2149, a time when all life on planet Earth is threatened with extinction (suggested in trailers to be due to dwindling worldwide air quality and overpopulation). In an effort to save the human race, scientists develop a time machine allowing people to travel 85 million years back in time to prehistoric Earth. The Shannon family (father Jim, his wife Elisabeth, and their three children Josh, Maddy and Zoe) join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first human colony on the other side of the temporal doorway. However, they are unaware that the colony is in the middle of a group of carnivorous dinosaurs.

Based on Jeff Lindsay's novels Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter this crime thriller follows Dexter Morgan. Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department. He is the main support for his sister. He has a steady girlfriend, with two kids who adore him. He also has an active "night life". Based on a code instilled in him by his foster father, Harry, he hunts down people who have escaped justice and makes sure they don't get away with a crime again.

Based on the Israeli version of "Prisoners of War." A U.S. soldier who was thought to have been killed in Iraq over 10 years ago who is now being questioned as to whether he is a member of a sleeper cell sent to cause a terrorist attack. Claire Danes stars in this Showtime pilot as a CIA agent
 with bipolar disorder who comes to suspect that an Afghanistan war hero who has returned home after years as a POW might be part of a terrorist plot. Expect a psychological thriller with a strong focus on character development. Bring it on.

House (aka House MD), from executive producers Paul Attanasio, Katie Jacobs, David Shore, and Bryan Singer is a new take on mystery, where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients.Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) is devoid of bedside manner and wouldn't even talk to his patients if he could get away with it. Dealing with his own constant physical pain, he uses a cane that seems to punctuate his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. While his behavior can border on antisocial, House is a maverick physician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts have afforded him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he's a brilliant diagnostician who loves the challenges of the medical puzzles he must solve in order to save lives. 

An apartment block has been renovated, but it's still haunted by the old asylum residents who used to live there.

Each week a person will be featured as they tell their story of how they experienced paranormal activity.

Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki as Dean and Sam Winchester, two brothers who travel the country looking for their missing father and battling evil spirits along the way.

Sam Winchester is a college student bound for law school, determined to escape his family's

past - unlike his older brother, Dean. Ever since they were little their father has been consumed with an obsession to find the evil forces that murdered his beloved wife, in result recruiting and training his two young sons to help him in revenge. They have grown up as hunters of the supernatural. Sam escaped under the premise of going to college, and now has a happy life with his girlfriend, Jessica, and a promising future career. Dean, however, stayed behind with his father to join him in his "hunting".

Dean goes to Sam for help when their father goes missing. Now Sam must join his brother to find him. His one weekend trip to search for the missing John Winchester becomes an ongoing quest after a horrible tragedy ruins any thought of a happy life for Sam.

The two brothers, bound by tragedy and blood to their mission, travel across the country encountering terrifying and dangerous forces most believe to be nothing but superstition and folklore, such as the Lady in White, the Indian beast known as the Wendigo, Phantom Travelers who cause plane crashes, Bloody Mary, vampires, demons and many more.

A car accident leads U.S. Marshal Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) into the top-secret Pacific Northwest town of Eureka. For decades, the United States government has relocated the world's geniuses to Eureka, a town where innovation and chaos have lived.

Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus. Dr. Magnus heads a global network of Sanctuaries for supernatural creatures, or as she likes to call them, Abnormals - which she retrieves from all over the world. Having injected a serum she created from pure, ancient vampire blood, Magnus and a small group of colleagues have come to possess special, paranormal abilities, or "powers" - hers being extreme longevity. Helen Magnus is a very beautiful and very well-preserved 158-years-old.

In her work, she is backed by a team of talented specialists : her daughter Ashley (Emilie Ullerup), trained in weapons and combat; Henry Foss (Ryan Robbins), a techno wizard, geek and part-time werewolf; the Big Guy (Christopher Heyerdahl), a gentle giant who also happens to be an intelligent, well-refined member of the Sasquatch branch of the hominid family. Heyerdahl also plays John Druitt - sometime friend and sometime foe, a teleporter who just happens to be Ashley's father - and Jack the Ripper. Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne) completes the team. Will, a young forensic psychiatrist who recently died and came back from the dead in Kali (3), has become Magnus' trusted confidant and protégé. Unfortunately, Ashley was lost to the void at the beginning of Season Two and may or may not ever return. She was replaced on Team Magnus by Kate (Agam Darshi), a former con-woman and thief with many shady connections. Druitt, like his daughter, sacrificed himself for the team and vanished - and again, may or may not return.

This cop drama will incorporate stories from Grimm's Fairy Tales. A cop named Nick (played by David Giuntoli) starts seeing humans as animals and wants to protect society from them. Russell Hornsby is set to play Nick's partner and Tulloch his love interest.

Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, writers of "LOST" are working on a modern take on fairy tales with a female lead character living in Maine that has risen from interesting circumstances. The Show revolves around the Adaptation of Fairytale Characters such as Snow white and Prince Charming in a
 quest to discover the Land Of Fairytale's and fight the Evil Queen who cast an Evil Spell on the Entire Land. 

Now, will I be able to keep up with all of these shows? Oh, probably. Will I stick with all these shows? That depends on the shows...especially the new ones!

And I'm sure there will be more added in time. I haven't even mentioned Survivor, The River, Unforgettable, Alcatraz, Bones, The Finder, or Awake , all of which I'm either undecided about, or start mid-season.      

So! Who thinks they can keep up with me? ;)

Doctor Who, The Girl Who Waited--My thoughts

This was one episode I've been anticipating for months and it didn't let me down.
Wow....WOW. Amazing acting, wonderful directing, great score and fabulous writing!
Karen Gillan was outstanding (finally!) as older Amy. She deserves a BAFTA nod for sure!

And this episode definitely deserves a Hugo nod!
This was the "Doctor-light' episode of the season and I really didn't miss him much!
The end was touching, and yes, I cried. ;)
Rory saying to the Doctor, "You're turning me into you!". Sad, but true. This is a harder, more unfeeling Doctor than we're used to seeing. :(

One thing bugged me, though. The Amys had to think of something very important to get younger-Amy into the correct time stream...So they thought about the Macarena and her first kiss with Rory?
Really? Not HER DAUGHTERS BIRTH?? A KISS was the most important thing?!

Lastly, one thing I've noticed...There seems to be a lot of 'double-Amy's' this season.
Ganger Amy, Teselecta Amy, Doll Amy, older Amy... Is there a reason for this theme? Does Moffat have something up his sleeve? Is he trying to tell us something with all these Amy's?

Fan Expo 2011--A First Timers Experience

I was so, SO lucky to attend my very first con, Fan Expo Canada in Toronto on Sunday, August 28.

You see, on Burdin's Comics (a local comic shop) Facebook page, he posted that he'd be having his annual bus trip on the Sunday and that the tickets would be $10 off.
Well, how could I pass that up?

I'd been waffling back and forth for not go...
Seeing that post made up my mind for me.

And I'm so frickin' glad I went.

I spent most of my time at the SPACE booth, since I feel like I know that awesome crew so well.

I met a great Facebook friend, Frank, and hung out with him.

Spent a little bit of time talking with the always-awesome, Ajay Fry, who I love to learn the ins and outs and behind the scenes stuff from!

I met the fabulous Robin Dunne from Sanctuary, Laura Mennell and Warren Christie from Alphas.

And another wonderful internet friend, the talented author, Nikki Stafford.

Yes, I did a once-around to see all the booths and the autograph sessions...But really, I was happy to be in my comfort zone, hanging with MY people....People I can relate to...People I like!

The InnerSPACE panel was fun, too!

And, of course, I have to mention the fact that I was standing less than 5 feet away from William Shatner during his interview with Teddy Wilson.

Speaking of Teddy, I DID get to see him and talk with him...and I did get a hug, of course. Teddy was SO busy this time that I didn't really see him much. 
Next time, Teddy!

My Daleks were a big hit. I'd made 15 and had 4 left at the end of the day. I gave those to Annabelle to give out at the SPACE offices. ;)

So, you can see, it was  GREAT day, full of friends and fun. :)

The highlights?

Ajay waving at me from the panel. That made me LOL.
Meeting Nikki Stafford!
Meeting Joanna, one of the awesome SPACE producers!
Ajay handing me an autographed pic of him, complete with personal message just for me. That actually made me tear up! It was so sweet that he'd thought of me. :)
Mark Askwith's story about a drunken Lance Henrickson!
Hanging with Annabelle. :)
Seeing Katie Sackhoff and Marina Sirtis from afar!
John Astin literally bumping into me and then apologizing for it!
Annabelle snagging a photo of me with Robin Dunne!
Talking Alphas and Heroes with Laura and Warren.
Seeing Sam!

Next year, I cosplay! ;)
