BACK!  
Finally got to watch the Big Premier and I was kinda in lust with it, yes indeedy.


My husband, who could give two farts in a mudpuddle about the series, loved the one-liners and Cas' selection of smite-worthy suckers. I ADORED Crowley, of course. And oh, OH! Gorgeous classic rock is back! "Slow Ride", for real? More cowbell, baby. MORE COWBELL. (I saw it coming; please refer to my wee little beachy case!fic "On the Wind". *preens*) And Nancy Sinatra for Crowley? I couldn't agree more.

I think, though, the writers may have condensed things a tad too much. I felt like I needed a little more fleshiness to Sam's side-effects, Dean's growing ennui, and certainly Cas' descent into the megalomaniacal. There was also dialogue that made me feel bits wound up on the cutting room floor that might've needed to be in there. But on the other hand, perhaps they used the Season Premier as a big kick-off, setting the stage for threads to be explored in the next few episodes. So this one had to be touching on many bases at once, out of necessity.

High points for me: Mark Pellegrino back as sweet and deadly as ever, Sam being yanked to the ceiling by a chain (unhf!), just about everything out of Dean's mouth, Crowley's adorable facial ticks, Cas realizing his "over-reach", and Bobby quoting rituals. Smexxy.

Now I can slink through LJ and read other people's reaction posts. My, but the willpower it took for me to avoid spoiling myself over the weekend when I was out of town and hungry for the big fun everyone else was having! Not that going to the Michigan Ren Faire with my friends wasn't fun but, yanno.

So in conclusion...

YAY! It's back and YAY! Leviathan and YAY! I love you, my darling Supernatural. Leave your wife and run away with me?

I SQUEED SO HARD OVER SLOW RIDE.

Also...Michigan Ren Faire! I was at the Pittburgh Ren Fest this weekend! (It has created a newfound love for these things, which led me to looking for them near Kalamazoo, and Michigan is totally on my to-do list for next year!)

I confess; I go for the beer. Ahem.

I spent years summering at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin :)

Really?! Did you work there?

My oldest daughter--the one who plays fiddle in the country rock band Mustang Sally--was the queen's Royal Fiddler for 7 years starting when she was 13. Somebody had to drive her there until she was old enough to get her license :)

Not that it was a hardship...
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 26th, 2011 01:17 pm (UTC)
Cool! I'm gonna google Mustang Sally now... :D

They're adorable! And hella good. I'm sorry I didn't know they were touring much of Ohio this summer; I would've made a point of seeing them. I'm a huge live-music whore. Next year!

I'm sure we watched her play! :)

Euuhmm, nothing more to add.. carry on XD

I loved Nancy Sinatra for Crowley, in the shlew of AWESOMESAUCE that was the premiere, that was one of the details that really stuck with me. :D

I am happy for you. Indeed, I am happy for us all!
I think you are right, there are bits missing but they packed an enormous amount into a short space and 99.9% of it was pure squee.
Best meta so far - try de_nugis!

Oooh, thanks! I shall pop over to her journal right now!

It was a most excellent premiere! I was especially excited about the set-up for Sam's wall trouble. Surprise Lucifer!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 26th, 2011 01:15 pm (UTC)
OMG, I squeed aloud when Sam flinched at Luci. Moar Hellcage memories! Better than cowbell, I swear. I know television is constrained by budget, but SPN has been so clever with their torture imagery, I just want more! Man, that chain yanking him to the ceiling...priceless.

Next ep, I cannot miss. CAN NOT. (Do you happen to watch 'The Closer'?) Mark Pellegrino had the best bit part in that show, recently. A flamingly gay but quick-as-a-whip lawyer. It was glorious.)
monicawoemonicawoe on September 26th, 2011 10:03 pm (UTC)
Yes next ep will be a big torture-filled romp!! : D

I will check out this Closer you speak of. I'll watch Pellegrino in anything ; )
Rince1windrince1wind on September 26th, 2011 01:35 pm (UTC)
Yay, indeed! The damn cable was out (no cable, no pic) five minutes before the show came on. I made my husband sit down in the living room and mess the &%*&%! remotes while I called AT&T. I got the woman on the line and said, "I'm going to hand you over to my husband and the two of you are gonna get me my TV show." Whew, in the nick of time. Cas ex machina! Whatever... it was great!

(Bristol Ren Faire, here, back to when it was King Richard's Fayre!)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 26th, 2011 01:47 pm (UTC)
Oh, yeah, I would've been "FIX IT OR DIE." I was out of town, praying we didn't have a brown-out at home, thereby effing up the dvr!

Mustang Sally was all over Ohio this past summer; if I'd have known, I'd have gone! Ah well...next year!
Rachel: blood dropraeve on September 27th, 2011 01:34 am (UTC)
YAY! you watched it! now i can SQUEE with you! *bounces around the room*

this episode pretty much had it all. my absolute fave part tho was DEATH! i wish he could be in EVERY episode! *A* i've been itchin' for a Death / Cas interaction for FOREVER! it.did.not.disappoint. <3<3<3 not to mention i can watch Dean on eggshells around Death all day. so adorable. XD

also, Dean saying "Pardon me. Do you have any Grey Poupon" damn near killed me (being the giant Wayne's World nerd that i am) :'D ah! the '90s! XD

i am so excite to find out what happened to crazy!Sammy!!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 27th, 2011 02:00 am (UTC)
Heeee! I had to explain the Grey Poupon reference to my 13 year old son. Next episode...whoa, man, hold me back. TOTALLY crazy!Sam and Dean, oh, Dean...please have hope that things can be made right again! I am so sad for you, Deano. Here, put your head to my motherly bosom...
Rachel: blood dropraeve on September 27th, 2011 02:12 am (UTC)
XD your son needs to watch Wayne's World and Wayne's World 2 IMMEDIATELY!



yeah, poor poor Dean. he's taking it all pretty well tho...which only makes me feel more sad for him. :'C
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 27th, 2011 04:38 am (UTC)
Yes, yes he does! He's at the perfect age for it. And jeeze...I kinda love it. "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" too! *airguitar*

Have to say there were some awesome surprises in this ep. I never read the credits at the beginning, so I was pretty shocked when Mr. Pellegrino appeared.
And it's definitely off to a better start than last season, really keen to see how this all goes down.
