SPN: 4x02 Are You There God? It's Me, Dean Winchester  
For cryin' out loud, SPN. Ripping off adolescent girls books for your title...*laughs*

The following are some of my incoherent thoughts on the episode.



Good episode. So they really are doing the Christian religious thing this year eh? When I read there would be religious undertones and metaphors, I thought they actually meant metaphors. Silly me.

I'm a big fan of that kind of story - ironic for someone that hates post-apocolyptic stuff - so while it's a bit different for SPN, I think it's the logical next step.

Yeah for all the dead people I love and missed. Kind of sucks that they were brought back like that. Yay for Bobby letting them rest again. But those guest stars really are a testament of how awesome their past guests have been. Meg really brought it. Man, I miss her. That actress is truly amazing.

Um...not much to say. Interesting Dean told them about the angel right off the bat, though I guess it would be hard to deny. Loved that he still doesn't believe. Love how excited Sam was. Poor Sam. I bet with that naughty he's been doing behind people's backs that he sees this info as a way to save him still.

Bobby has a panic room. Haha.

You know, if they kill off hunters left and right that is going to bring us basically down to Sam and Dean. I do wonder if an eventual face-off (hopefully followed by a massive teamup to buck the system) is in the works.

Just no killing the Bobby, kay?

I have more to say but I'm thinky. Maybe I'll spam you all with a post with randomness later.

But yay for Dean *loves* And pwned by Castiel! That was awesome. As much as I love Dean, that boy has a mouth and it's always good when someone puts him in his place.

So I guess the season arc is to stop the seals, eh? Well, that's not exactly where I thought it was going and they'll probably fail in the end, but it should be an interesting ride along the way. Guessing they are setting Lucifer up for the final arc?

Anyway, it was a cool episode and I enjoyed it. And dang, preview for next week. Stop making me excited. I was supposed to be disappointed and not wanting to invest in the show so much! it's not good for me to be so obsessed!

ETA: Oops. I made it sound like I hated the title of this episode. No, I loved it LOL I cracked up the first time I heard it and it's never ever going to stop haunting me now LOL

It is good to be obsessed ;-)

I know there are people who are going to really take exception to the whole God/Angel storyline, but I really like it. I like taking different looks at the supernatural. I've always wondered where God was in a world inhabited by demons and devils and I really like that he's finally putting in an appearance. It was a little scary listening to Dean tonight, because he kind of voiced all the thoughts that I've had this week.

*bounces*

Can't wait for next week!!

Hey! I haven't spoken to you in forever. How are you doing?

I don't know about the obsession thing ;) I'm at the point I was with SG-1 where it consumes me and that can be scary LOL But I LOVE this show so very much.

I'm loving S4 so far. The distance that I expect between the brothers this season is going to hurt bad, but I think we'll get some good payoff from it if they got that route.

*squees*

Is it Thursday yet?

I don't know if I'm quite as obsessed as I was with SG-1, I've not felt any need to write fanfic. But it's a great start to the season and I'm really looking forward to seeing where they go with it, and discussing it with my friends. I've missed that a lot!!

I have no idea what to expect from season 4, I've avoided spoilers like the plague (*giggles* at my bad pun), but it does seem that when Dean finds out that Sam is working with Ruby and with his powers, Dean is going to be PISSED! The fact that Sam didn't tell him right off says to me that he knows he's doing something bad, he just doesn't want to admit to himself. I wonder if it's not Castiel that's going to tell Dean.

Not Thursday yet ;-( But closer!

Love the icon!

Oh, and I'm good ;-) How are you doing?

Every time they say 'seal', I keep thinking Sea World.

I didn't mind the episode title; it's yet another tick in the column that makes Dean the most female-like character of the Winchesters.

And Castiel is rather ruthless, isn't he? Even those who fight for good sometimes employ tactics evil uses.

Oh i loved the title. I forgot to note I was being sarcastic in my breakdown LOL

I loved they decided to make Castiel edgy. It suits the show. I really couldn't see them doing the watered-down versions of angels here :)

YES on the no-killing of Bobby.

I was kinda hoping that it was going to be more metaphorical, too. Oh well. I'm not freaking out yet.

Cool to know that there are more angels out there, though. I bet we'll see some more before the season's done.

I shouldn't allow myself to get so invested. I get so twitchy!

I'm looking forward (and bracing myself for the ache) as the season rolls forward :)

I actually liked the title. When my daughter told me that's what it was called I was lucky I wasn't drinking anything that could come out of my nose. ;)

I also like that Castiel is presenting himself and other angels as warriors, with the information that they can be killed (since they lost six in the previous week). They're not invulnerable, even though demons, like Ruby and the ones who were too afraid of Castiel to do anything other than bluff to Dean (last week) are worried enough about angels that they tend to high-tail it away from them when they can (most demons, anyway, since something killed the six dead angels).

I loved the film Dogma and am glad that the angels definitely don't seem to be of the Michael Landon/Della Reese/Roma Downey variety. That would make my teeth ache. (I never watched those shows and only saw snatches of them in commercials while they were on the air.) I think what we're seeing in general here is that, despite "ancient prophecies" that happen to be from Revelation entering the story, there's no predictability, there's no omnipotence on either side. Which, I think, will eventually dawn on Dean and answer his why-do-bad-things-happen-to-good-people question.

Yeah I love that they are going for the more traditional and ancient form of angels since it really suits the style and mood of the show.

And my sarcasm didn't come through in my post. I *love* the title. I laugh every time I see it. Hee.

I agree. I really can't wait!

The title WAS made of aweosme, lol!

Ohhh, I kept saying that too, lol!! Better NOT kill of Bobby people! I'll be frigging pissed!

*hugs*

That's been my mantra for a long time. NO KILLIN' TEH BOBBEH!

OMG, like last year I nearly had a heartattack watching Dream a Little Dream of Me. I've been on edge ever since LOL

Supernatural was an awesome episode! Hendrics was back! Yeah! I really wanted him to be a recurring cast member once he found out the truth. He would have been a kick ass hunter.
