Need S1 Episodes of SPN?  
I knew that TNT was playing SPN now, but I didn't know they are also uploading full episodes online! So, if you've missed out on some of the classics, here's your chance.

Sadly, they don't have all of S1 up at this time. So many of the beginner foundational episodes where you get to know the brothers aren't up. But many of the mid-late season episodes are there and that is when S1 got REALLY GOOD.

They do have the episode called "Faith" up right now. if there is any episode I would urge you to watch, it's that one. All the episodes they have up are good and omg "Shadow"! Meg! John! demons! But "Faith" is the episode that snagged me from casual viewer to getting excited and making icons and stuff. I think it's one of the series best. And it's my second fave episode ever. In hindsight, it's very enlightening if you are watching S4 and S5. Not only does it deal with Sam's and Dean's faith vs lack of faith, but also Sam's drive and Dean's self-doubt. There are even some nice parallels to trying to save Dean from S3 as well. Very awesome.

Here's the episode: While on a hunt, Dean accidentally is electrocuted and permanently damages his heart. (It's always that poor boy's heart.) Sam takes Dean to a faith healer hoping to save him, but they find out there's more going on than it first appears.


If you don't want to watch the whole episode - WHY NOT?! - here a couple of clips to show you what the episode is like. I tried to embed them, but I seem to be having some trouble with TNT's embed code with LJ.

Dean and the faith healer:

Probably the best use of a classic rock song in this show ever.

"Don't Fear the Reaper."


I could quote this episode all day, but I've always liked this bit:

Roy: "You've come here to be healed, haven't you?"

Dean: "Well, yeah, but maybe you should just pick someone else."

Roy: "I didn't pick you, Dean. The Lord did."

ETA: Another good exchange I love and makes so much more sense now:

Dean: Why? Why me? Out of all the sick people why save me?

Roy: Well, like I said before, the Lord guides me. I looked into your heart and you just stood out from all the rest.

Dean: What did you see in my heart?

Roy: A young man with an important purpose - a job to do - and it isn't finished.

If you have some time, go watch and enjoy :)

"I didn't pick you, Dean. The Lord did."


That's all. :)

I know right? I love that line. And the way the actor playing the faith healer delivers it too!

And we had NO idea just HOW right the guy was. Oh, Dean! ♥

These little moments in the first three seasons always blow me away now.

Another good one was:

Dean: Why? Why me? Out of all the sick people why save me?

Roy: Well, like I said before, the Lord guides me. I looked into your heart and you just stood out from all the rest.

Dean: What did you see in my heart?

This is the ep that whisper99 used to suck me in, too. After months of fighting it, telling her to shut up, telling her to go away, telling her I had no interest... it took the 42 minutes of this episode to get me completely hooked.

I remember when I first saw this episode I was stunned how much I really liked it. Prior to this episode I was watching along because I had bought the DVDs on sale and I kept being told to watch, I'll love it, etc. But it was this episode that one me over on a story/character level and made me step back and think, wow. There is something to this show.

Unfortunately, either due to denial or something, my obsessive love didn't last very long and I fell out of favor with it not long after. (Roadkill and Heart pushed me away from the show - I was watching S2 as I was finishing the DVDs.) But a combination of S3 and watching the rest of S2 on DVD won me back again.

Faith has been one of my top five eps ever since.

it's still amazing, isn't it? First ep I ever made icons for aside maybe from one from the pilot so I could have a post on Lj icon.

I seriously need good icons for this episode LOL

Faith is a really good episode. I had almost forgotten about it. I was watching the TNT marathon yesterday, and I realized after season 2, I've only seen most of the episodes once, so it was really fun to watch some of them again!

Oh your icon is cool!

I was watching part of the marathon yesterday. I miss the oldies!

bohemian_weasel does some great SPN fanart, and she turned some of them into icons. I love them! (She did my icon.)

Oh man, "Faith". That episode is just... beyond foreshadowing at this point. I don't even think they meant it that way, but that's what it has become, entirely. Also, definitely one of my early favorites, but it seems everyone feels that way, LOL!

Yeah, I don't think it was meant to be as prophetic as we see it now, but kudos to the writers for tying it in so nicely.

It's still one of my all time faves. In My Time of Dying beats it out for my fave of the series, though.

'Faith' is my lil sister's fav episode, she found the reaper to be adorable XD

I love the episode. Even story wise, it's just amazing.

Kitty icon!

Thanks for the link - I had no idea they were putting up episodes - or clips! Alas, "Faith" is gone now. Guess I'll have to watch "Devil's Trap" and "In My Time of Dying" instead!

Wow, they took those down fast! I'm glad a few people were able to watch them before they did, though.

I've been watching (I know, I know - I have the DVDs, but it's not really the same, you know?) since it started on TNT - and I'm excited that they are putting episodes on line! Means more people joining us for season six!!

When Castiel showed himself to be an angel, those conversations were the first things that popped into my head, *chuckles*

*hugs you*
