SPN 8.05 - Blood Brother

One of these days, I'll do the reviewing during the same week the episode is shown. But better late than never, here is what I thought of last week's installment:

First of, the episode before this ("Bitten") was not my cup of tea. I suppose the concept may sound intriguing, but frankly I just couldn't muster enough care for those kids. Plus the camera was shaking so much that I got dizzy watching the show. The only thing that slightly caught my attention was how physically similar the blonde haired kid was to Sam. Coincidence? Or deliberate casting choice? I was left wondering if there was some foreshadowing going on here. I will get back to this later.

In contrast, this week's episode I loved, for the most part.

SPN 8.03 - Heartache

Time is not on my side. I meant to write something for 8.02, but it's almost 2 weeks too late! Alas, I guess I'll just skip that one and quickly jot down a few thoughts for 8.03 before the next episode airs.

Heartache...Collapse )

SPN 8.01 - We Need to Talk About Kevin

WOW! Time flies. It's been so long since I've posted anything regarding Supernatural. Last Wednesday night, I caught the show's season premier. I was very excited about where the story is going this time and wanted to jot down my thoughts right away. Alas, my best laid plan was interrupted by RL. Nonetheless, here's what made me so happy:

PCA Afterwards...

It's a day after People's Choice Award 2012 came to a conclusion. I'm still much infuriated at PCA organizer and show runner's obvious snub at Supernatural, winner of both Favorite Network TV Drama and Favorite Scifi/Fantasy last night. So I went on their 2012 PCA Best Moments Best Dressed blog to give them a piece of my mind. This is what I said:

There is NO best moment because PCA organizers and show runners behaved like a bunch of spoiled immature high schoolers by snubbing one of its much deserved MAJOR award winners just because the said winner isn’t in with the “IN” and “IT” crowd!

The WORST moment goes to ignoring its FAVORITE NETWORK DRAMA category entirely. What does this say about an award show that doesn’t even give credit and respect to one of its major category?

This however does not take away the awesome double wins by SUPERNATURAL. No thanks to suits and pencil pushers, SUPERNATURAL, the quintessential “little show that could be” won these accolades because it won the hearts of its loyal fans. We the people chose the show to be our favorite, no slight from PCA and any party associated with it will change that.

Oh and you ask for Best Dressed? Why, it’s none other than Jensen and Jared dressed as Dean and Sam Winchester thanking fans for our support all the way from Vancouver!

Writer's Block: People’s Choice

Who is your favorite celebrity right now?
Surfacing from my piles of "to-dos" to celebrate Supernatural's TWO WINS tonight at "People's Choice Awards" (Favorite Network Drama & Favorite Scifi/Fantasy), here's my favorite celebrity at the moment:

JENSEN ACKLES

Why not? He's got talent, as Executive Producer Sara Gamble commented on a scene from the latest episode (711 "Adventures in Babysitting") in an interview: Yes, Ackles continues to improve upon perfection. "I loved the last shot of that episode. I think that Jensen did a tremendous job with that, as usual...; AND he's got the looks:

Oh Jensen, why so pretty...Collapse )

Oh My Frakking God!

Just watched Supernatural 7.06 and there he was, Michael Hogan! As a guest star! Did I miss something? How was there not any news or blurbs about him making an appearance on the show?!? I've been dreaming for years that SPN can get him and they wasted him on such a small role? ::cry::

But hey, at least he had scenes with Jensen. Going to work that rewind button over and over...

Mississippi Personhood Amendment

Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.
