Rexford, Idaho. A man calls the suicide hotline, but drops the phone and leaves the poor gal blathering buzz phrases into the ether. That is until he plops the receiver (which is attached to a cord that runs to the base of his rotary phone) back onto the cradle. Without her trying to pull him back from the ledge he picks up his gun and aims it at his temple, but he catches sight of a (black and white) photograph of whom we can only assume is his wife and child, and he can’t do it.
Suddenly, there’s a stranger in the room with him, a shadowed figure complete with foreboding music.
Do you recognize that musical arrangement? One of my personal favorites, it’s the sound of John Winchester revealing he’s the Yellow Eyed Demon. Misty watercolor memories, yo.
Only this time the man obviously isn’t a demon. You can tell by the single cross-shaped earring in his left ear.

Picture it: Lebanon, Kansas, 1935. The first Men of Letters to occupy the bunker, Peter and James, meet up to crack open the joint. Switches flipped, they take a look around at their freshly constructed HQ. James is less than impressed. Peter is full of bright-eyed enthusiasm. That is, until he realizes that it’s a total bore. James, on the other hand, seems to like the quiet. Quiet that is interrupted by a Batcall. Continue reading
Catholic church backyards are beautiful at night aren’t they? The two priests taking a stroll seem to think so. It’s all fun and games and Monsignor visit prep until an angel shows up and creepily asks if you’ve seen a graceless ex-angel lately. Continue reading
A body bag being dragged through a romantically lit house. Deep-fried phalanges peeking out from said body bag. That’s right folks, it’s time for a new episode of Supernatural! Continue reading
Throw a party, toss off your grumpiness; hellatus is over and season 9 is here.
We open the episode with Sam and Dean cruising in the Impala discussing rain of angels. Sam is ready to deal with it, Dean is gruff and distant. Okay, so it’s a kinda depressing party.
You really are back Supernatural! Continue reading
Opinionated commentary below the cut. Continue reading
I decided (at the time I decided masochistically) to pick up where I left off of Smallville (season 9 almost at the end) so that I knew what was happening in the series finale. Why did I decide to watch the series finale?
I actually have no idea.
Even if you haven’t watched Smallville in years, you can fill in what’s happening with basic knowledge of the Superman story and the first couple seasons of the show.
