Supernatural: 4x05 Monster Movie  
Thoughts on the episode under the cut.

I knew I would like this one before it aired. It reminds me a lot of The X-Files episode called "Post-Modern Prometheus," but at the same time was very different and its own animal. I appreciated that.

It was very funny and I loved the opening credits and "Intermission." Loved the black and white. I was spoiled for the lederhosen and have been laughing ever since about it. Lovely brotherly stuff yet it still managed to fit into the season. Love that.

Also, before I forget - this is the episode where supposedly Kripke named Jamie after a sick fan. he sent her a letter and some autogrpahs to tell her he'd named a character after her and what episode she would be in. I saw the letter on the girl's LJ and she was tickled pink.

I don't have much to say, but it will definitely be fun to rewatch. The brothers prove to be sexy and gorgeous in black and white :)

Non-spoilery comment for next week: I missed most of the preview, but I am still excited about the episode. Looks like more and more I won't get what I want and that the description is misleading - as I mentioned in a previous post - but I've been looking forward to this episode for ages. So while I would really like _____ to happen, the episode looks awesome. I think I am going to be thrilled no matter what :)

I cracked up throughout this episode! I was not spoiled for the Lederhosen and nearly fell off the couch laughing about it. Was great how nicely it worked in as a break from the serious stuff they've been dealing with but wasn't totally out of character either.

It was great for that! In character but still funny and weird :)

Now I'm curious. You'd like ______ to happen? What's ______?!?!

I knew I'd love this episode from the promos!
It did not disappoint.

Lovely brotherly stuff yet it still managed to fit into the season. Love that.

That's it right on the head! I was so impressed at how they could get the boys back into brotherly/team mode and still have it fit with everything they've both been through.

I think most telling are Sam's expression at seeing Dean just being all enthusiastic about the things that Dean was always excited about. Food, women, hunting things, helping people....The moment where you just see Sam go, "Oh my god, my brother's back. He's really back." It was subtle but incredibly sweet.

And Dean's conversation with Jamie in the bar. How he had been feeling the weight of what they did before. How he faced death and came out on the otherside with a whole new lease on life--and a renewed "faith" if you will in what they do and how important it is.

Good stuff all around.

AWww, Kripke and Company are sooo very sweet!
That was a great thing they did for that fan. :)

I want to watch again so I can watch Sam more. I was shamelessly not really paying much attention to their expressions *cough*

LEDERHOSEN. Oh my word. I was only spoiled for the title, if that even counts as as spoiler. I was totally killed from the credits on.

I was dying for the lederhosen. *happy sigh*

So um, Dracula likes to undress men? Hmm...
