The Winchesters are in peril...it must be Thursday.  
I've been downloading songs from my childhood years, well, more specifically from my junior high years anyway. I hadn't realized there were songs that I loved that I didn't have in my files, and believe me I have A LOT of music on my hard drive. Like, I've been reliving childhood memories of BACKSTREET BOYS and AALIYAH and TLC and old school MARIAH CAREY, and all of that. Also, isn't it funny how when you hear a song or see a certain music video you can tell exactly what year or era it's from, just by the look or song of it? Weird, huh? Heh. So, I've been on that nostalgic road for the last two days.

The SPACE preview clip for tonight's SPN episode has been posted, and I have some points and thoughts about it


02. I'm slightly worried about the whump!Castiel we'll be seeing, but having Dean fuss over him is worth everything. ♥ I do have two theories based on this though: his powers are diminishing bit by bit every episode we see him in, making him more human, or the fact that he's cut off from Heaven limits abilities that are tied with the Holiest of the Holy of Heaven, you know? Like ganking demons requires holy light, as I'm sure it does with healing others, and I'm betting he can time travel, as we do witness, but it'll take out all the energy inside of him as opposed to if he had Heaven's help. But it seems he'll be up for the badass angel showdown, which leads me to...

03. GOD! Could Julie McNiven have any less of a personality in this? Seriously, one of the things that annoyed me about her is how she lacks any kind of personality or any kind acting ability, there's zero chemistry between her and anyone on the show. She's just mainly there. I don't even know why they had her return. As you can tell, I really dislike the character very much, but it seems like she has her own sketchy agenda perhaps from the start (I always thought she was hiding something, or that could have been the lack of acting, idk) and if the preview worth anything, this means that she's going to die (since threatening a Winchester pretty much sealed her fate indefinitely). And I hope so too, because it seems Kripke is bringing back characters this season to finish them off, and Anna is one character I won't mind being killed off. I won't even shed a tear, in fact, I might rejoice. /soapbox

04. But if anything, I'll tolerate this episode because we'll have Castiel, Sam and Dean going back in time to meet young!Mary and young!John, so that amount of awesome outweighs the cringeworthy stuff with Little Miss Special Snowflake.

05. Also, I heard the title of the episode has been changed? It had been "Back To The Future 2" and now it's something like "The Song Remains The Same"? Can someone confirm this?

Just had to get that out, these are just my opinions and thoughts people alright? I'll have more to say after the episode has aired, of course. Other than that though, I'm excited for the episode, but I think I'm more excited for the next episode, 5.14 than this week's? I don't know, but I think after viewing spoilerish pictures for that one it made me somewhat giddy, lol.

Still working on my Dollhouse finale review, I have lots to say about it and the show overall, and how much I miss it already. I'm kinda sad that tomorrow will be Friday and it's no longer on. :( :( :(

Old school Mariah, before her Glitter days, I really liked her. "Fantasy" was the song everyone knew and once you started singing the beginning beats everyone else would join in with you (it's the same with singing the Fresh Prince theme song)

I agree with 02. I think slowly he is losing power. Maybe it's not going away completely but being cut off from Heaven has to change things for him. And I can't wait for Dean fussing over him.

He did say that there were things he couldn't do, so we're just finding out to what extent this means. Traveling back in time is definitely going to put a damper into his energy, I just hope he makes it back with the boys okay. And Dean being all worried over his angel is going to be awesome, because from that little clip we saw earlier of whump!Castiel and Dean going all "no no no" with him? Oh yeah, hurt/comfort here we come.

But yes, more Castiel goodness for the rest of the season. I am just giddy because I've missed him so much.

I'm not a big Anna fan although not as much as you. :)

Heh well, what can I say? She's pretty much the only character on the show I have major issues with, because of how she was presented and written.

All of Mariah's old suff was great. I loved like her first 4(or so) albums. I don't listen to any of her new stuff though.

I missed Cas, too. I just hope that if they so a season 6 that he is still around. Maybe that would also make the boys wanna do another season if they knew they were gonna spread out the work a little more.

Bella had been the only character that I have majorly disliked. I think that was the writing issue.

I hope he sticks around too, because right now I can't imagine another season without him. He's been made a regular, which is interesting since Bobby is still secondary and he's been with the boys for a long while now. So they better have Castiel stick around if/when there's that sixth season, which I'm still wary about but hopefully they'll do something smart instead of just the regular hunts again. I kinda want them to extend the apocalyptic arc since, you know, how can you end the show properly without it becoming dull? The Apocalypse is the only way to finish with a bang, imo.

Oh yeah, Bela too. I didn't like her while watching season three, though in retrospect we were meant to not like her. Also yeah, it generally was a writing issue, Kripke even mentioned that the character didn't fit in the grand scheme of the show. Though honestly really I didn't mind Lauren Cohen, she did the best she could with what she had, but I have to agree that the character just did not fit at all with the universe of Supernatural. The third season is perhaps the weakest season though, in terms of writing and direction.
