My review for the Supernatural episode "Adventures in Babysitting" is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

"Maybe Sam’s incompetence is to demonstrate how helpless he is without Bobby doing his research, but then, we already know that. Maybe it’s to demonstrate how helpless he is without Brother Dean, but then we already knew THAT too. So why does Show insist on this scenario over and over? Not that I mind the sight of Sam all tied up and ready to be sacrificed, but as big and as smart as he is, it sometimes gets a little silly to see him fail like that. Seems to me, at this point in Sam’s development, Show could be a bit more inventive and take risks with what Sam’s capable of. Oh, but this is Show, I forgot. Home of the insecure writer."

I've been asked the following question a lot over the last week:" Where does the name "Soap Angel" come from, anyway?"

My review of the Supernatural episode "Mommy, Dearest" is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

"After the hoe-down hilarity of last week’s ep, this week’s ep was a whole lot of something that wasn’t anything like a hoe-down and nothing like anything I’d be watching twice, if I didn’t have to. I’m not saying it was terribly bad, but at every other turn in the plot, I kept asking, why are they doing that? or why is he saying that to him? Not to mention the fact that it was Dean, Dean, Dean, all day, all night, all Dean, 24/7, and there was, at the same time, a mighty DEARTH of Sam."

My review of the Supernatural episode “Swan Song” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

“Sam and Dean drive off in the Impala. In the rain. There’s some cool chiaroscuro lighting on rain-dappled faces, and for me it really doesn’t get any better than this. The boys discuss Dean’s bad feelings about their plans, and then Sam talks seriously to Dean, but not about last words of goodbye. It’s not that all the words between them have been said and there’s nothing more to say. It’s that between them they are saying it, and have been saying it, hello, and goodbye, and I love you, every minute of every day. So there’s no point saying it if it’s already being said. I really liked this scene, obviously.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “Two Minutes to Midnight” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

“MB starts handing out intel, like how many people will die in the upcoming disaster in Chicago, like it’s candy. Even as I’m wondering how he knows this, Sam asks the obvious question, how did you put all this together, anyways? Just as I’m about to suspect that MB went ahead and made that deal with the crossroads demon, ta-da, in walks Crowley. It’s predictable but fun. It also means that Sam is the only one who hasn’t made a crossroads deal, though not for lack of trying. And then, just as I’m about to ask the most obvious next question, Sam asks it for me. He got the expression of a 12 year old looking at the innards of dead animal he’s just discovered run over in the road. It’s terribly gross to contemplate, but he just can’t help himself, so Sam looks at MB and says, “Did you kiss him?” (So cute.)”

My review of the Supernatural episode “The Devil You Know” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

“Sam is full of Dutch courage (desperate and wound up the entire time) and starts implying what he thinks he ought to do. The line where Sam spells out his idea to MB is classy: “What if you guys lead the devil to the edge, and I jump in?” After which Sam assumes he can take back “the wheel” and all will be well. Except that the demon he’s allowed to possess his body would be none other than the Morning Star himself, and it would get a little more tricky to get away with than your average, everyday demon. MB rightfully objects; he doesn’t want either boy to die a hero’s death, obviously, and neither do I. That is, I don’t want them to die, period.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “Hammer of the Gods” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

 ”And I did like that Dean notices that Sam was uptight, and encourages him to unpucker and try to relax for once. And best of all, that Dean reiterated that he still was keeping the faith and wasn’t giving up. (He does this with some marvelous eye contact, making sure that Sam understands exactly what he’s saying.) Dean thinks they have earned the right to eat all the pie they can manage. As for Sam, he urges that they go back on the road. He’s reverted back to being the sensible one, the way he was in Season One, only this time around, his caution is tempered with experience, so what used to come across as sulky complaining, now comes across as good advice. Which neither one of them follows, leaving them stuck in the hotel.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “Point of No Return” is up at pinkraygun.com.

 Enjoy!

An excerpt:

“The walls of this little dive are a deep green, and Dean is dressed in black and grey, all the tones of which make his skin paper white, as if he’s experiencing a shock from which he cannot recover. (And frankly, green is such a good color for Dean. It makes his eyes bright and his mouth lush and ashen rose, just like the best heroine in a romance novel. But I like him this way, even if he is about to die.) Every little detail points to Dean saying his last goodbyes before he says yes, but all I have to say is, he sure as hell better be writing that letter to SAM, even if he is addressing the box to Magical Bobby. Because, yes, even if Sam doesn’t have a fixed address, Sam is one of the most prized and valued things in Dean’s life. And I have the episode right here to prove it.”

My review of the Supernatural Episode "99 Problems" is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

"Sam and Dean have a dither at one of the tables. Sam’s Samhair is in full force, making his face look all sculpted, with his strong, manly jawline coming across to me like an erotic shock. Oh, dear me, his mouth is so rosy and sweet, and he just keeps moving it as he talks. And as for Dean, he’s lit up and all green eyed and sparkly, and his eyebrows say yes, yes, while his lips say no, no, and it’s almost too much. Really, both of them being this beautiful at the same time should be against the law. What are they talking about? Oh, yes."

My review of the Supernatural episode “Dark Side of the Moon” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

“Post-fireworks, Dean drives off in the Impala, through the night, along a two-lane blacktop road. Overhead, is a full moon, and a sky full of stars. Which, as you know, is impossible, even if it is very pretty. But since this is heaven, since this is Dean’s heaven, the full moon is big enough and close enough to touch, all silver and blazing with moon dust. And around it, the stars sparkle white against the black and dark purple, like diamonds against velvet. This for Dean is a perfect night, this for Dean is perfection, and such a simple perfection it is, something that money and power cannot buy, and so right for Dean’s character, that he would choose this. Oh Dean, be it ever thus.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

Sam and Dean arrive at a cemetery to dig up Clay’s grave. Or at least, they dig up a coffin, which turns out to be empty, and a very fine sight it was. The digging, I mean, not the coffin. I love watching the boys at work together, doing physical labor like this and I think that’s for two reasons. One, they’re beautiful when they’re all sweating and grunting and manly and stuff. And two, because the digging up of a grave in the middle of the night harkens back to a more innocent time, when saving people, hunting things was all there was to it, and we didn’t have any of this, “and oh, yes, we’re hiding out from Lucifer, and trying to say no to the AA. Michael, and waiting to get shafted by the holy host, etc.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “My Bloody Valentine” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

The Soap Angel explains that it’s Cupid at work, and there’s something gone haywire with the results because a hungry love turns into a devouring love, literally. One of my first thoughts was, naughtily, that since Sam and Dean have this weird, brotherly, love-hate thing going on, and they tend to be a little obsessed with each other 24/7, would they then succumb to that and become each other’s valentines? Would the eating then start? I kept waiting for it, some indication, a movement of the mouth (Dean’s) or a look from beneath dark brows (Sam’s) that would take the story into a deliciously dangerous direction. Alas, no, though I feel fairly certain that I’m not the only one who thought this.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “The Song Remains the Same” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

So then Sam gets to say what’s in his heart and in his soul about how much he loves John, even in spite of him being a not so very good dad sometimes. I love Sam’s speech about John to John to pieces and then some, so I’m including it here in its entirety: “He was trying. He died trying. I used to be mad at him, I used to hate the guy. But now I get it, he was just doing the best he could. See, my mom she was amazing…she was the love of his life. When she got killed, and I think he would have gone crazy if he didn’t do something. Truth is my dad died before I got to tell him that I understand why he did what he did and I forgive him for what it did to us, I do. I just…I love him.”

My review of the Supernatural episode Swap Meat is up at pinkragun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

“Then we are treated to a whole slew of scenes where Sam is in Gary’s body, and Gary is in Sam’s body, and then the fun starts. Every respectable TV show should have a body-swap ep, and this is Show’s. Although, to be frank, it would have been more fun had Dean and Sam swapped bodies with each other. With Ackles and Padalecki’s high level of comedic talent, and their familiarity with each other’s motions and gestures and speech patterns, it would have been a hoot and a half! So that’s one for the suggestion box, I think, and what with the rumors flying about a sixth season, maybe Show will take another stab at the body-swap idea and give us all a treat.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “Sam, Interrupted” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

 An excerpt:

“Later, Dean comes to visit Sam in his room. (His private room, right? Yeah, uh-huh, sure.) Anyway, it’s a pretty cool scene because it gets all up close and personal. Dean’s tightly wound as a clock. Sam’s sprawled in the bed, all splayed thighs and messy Samhair. But more, because Sam pumped with stuff is like Sam drunk, and a drunk Sam is a more honest Sam. This is a particularly nice flavor, because when Sam is honest, he calls it like he sees it.”

You can read my review of the Supernatural episode “Abandon All Hope…” at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

”There was an interesting little scene tucked away among all this. Dean spots Jo’s tight, jean-clad bottom. And like any red-blooded American male, and exactly like our biology has been programmed in us in order to ensure continuation of the species, he gets the sudden urge to spread some of his DNA around. It’s the last night of the world, after all. He saunters over to her like a tom cat and does that eyebrow thing and that glitter in his eye thing and then he does that leaning thing, all the while his mouth is moving, talking about their last night on earth, drawing her in for that kiss.”

My review of the Supernatural episode “The Real Ghostbusters” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!

An excerpt:

”As well, the other conventionalists, even in the face of Sam and Dean’s skill and experience, and even when Dean tries to tell the Faux Dean and the Faux Sam that he really is Dean, the possibility of Sam and Dean being real is denied and even laughed off. Sam and Dean remain in the shadows, incognito, but certainly not unhonored nor unsung, even though the whole convention is about them. Well, it’s about Chuck Shurley and his fans’ admiration for his work, but mostly it’s about the fans coming together to celebrate their heroes, Sam and Dean. And this they do with amicable passion, and varying amounts of skill.”
