TNT is hosting a Supernatural marathon tomorrow (Wed, Jan 28). I’m not sure what the special occasion is, but since they’re currently on the back side of the Great Season 8, I’m there! Sure, I could just pull out the season 8 DVD set, but this way is lazier, even if it means fast-forwarding through the commercials.
As it is, I watched “Trial and Error” again today. I loved it when it first aired (it’s possibly my second favorite episode of season 8, after “Sacrifice”), and I think I love it even more now. As if seeing the guys in geeky glasses and getting a look at a hell hound for the first time (just as creepy as one would imagine) wasn’t enough, we got a couple scenes of the brotherly love which makes this show so special.
Dean’s determined to keep Sam safe, believing his own life isn’t worth much, and he’s willing to die. Sam says Dean’s life does matter. Because Sam can see a future at the end of the trials, he should be the one to complete them so that they both can survive. It’s a little heartbreaking since we know what’s coming.
Recently, I’ve been thinking about my favorite Supernatural episodes through the years and doing a(nother) retrospective. Hmm… Should I do another Supernatural March Madness this year? Nah, it’s too time-consuming, especially since March is not a rerun month. Perhaps a June/July Jubilee would be a better alternative? Or just a “Favorite Five” for each season? So many options, so little discipline.
Tonight the awesome Charlie Bradbury returns, but seems she may not be so awesome. Man, I hope they didn’t make Charlie a bad soul just because Felicia Day cut her hair.
