Most of the reviews are out of the way and the dust is settling over the season six finales, so it's time to start our annual Hellatus tradition of looking back at the prior season.  First in the series, a fun little game we like to play called "Rank Them in Five Minutes."

The game is easy.  I list the 22 episodes from season six in order of appearance.  You rank them from best to worst (in your opinion). The guideline is do this in five minutes, but who really keeps that kind of a stopwatch around?  Just don't take an afternoon.  When you are done ranking, the list stays.  No going back and second guessing.  The idea is to catch your first reaction.  It tends to be the most honest.  

Here is the episode list:

Exile on Main Street
Two and A Half Men
The Third Man
Weekend at Bobby's
Live Free and Twi Hard
You Can't Handle The Truth
Family Matters
All Dogs Go To Heaven
Clap Your Hands If You Believe
Caged Heat
Appointment in Samarra
Like A Virgin
Unforgiven
Mannequin 3:  The Reckoning
The French Mistake
And Then There Were None
My Heart Will Go On
Frontierland
Mommy Dearest
The Man Who Would Be King
Let It Bleed
The Man Who Knew Too Much

As I've done in the past, I'll share my list.  This year I took the whole five minutes and maybe a few extra seconds.  I'm curious to see how many go along with my line of thought.  Usually it's not many.

The Man Who Would Be King

The French Mistake

Unforgiven

Weekend at Bobby’s

Clap Your Hands If You Believe

Appointment in Samarra

Frontierland

The Man Who Knew Too Much

Live Free and Twi Hard

Mommy Dearest

The Third Man

You Can’t Handle The Truth

Two and a Half Men

And Then There Were None

Caged Heat

Let It Bleed

Like A Virgin

Family Matters

Exile On Main Street

My Heart Will Go On

Mannequin 3: The Reckoning

All Dogs Go To Heaven

 
Now it's everyone else's turn!  This five minute game is a lot of fun to do on a holiday when relatives are driving you just a bit insane.  It's perfect escapism!  Just remember to share your answers.  There is no right or wrong.

Wouldn't it be interesting to compile the results? (she hinted)

I find that I feel really strongly about my first 6 and the last 3, and the rest are all solid episodes with some good and some misfires.

The last 3 episodes that aired, I find I'm too close to them, and haven't rolled them around in my mind enough to judge where I think they should rank.

This is a hard season for me, it's very clear which one is my favorite episode no doubt, and the ranking from 1st to 10th is pretty solid, and the rank of 19th to 22nd as well. All the ones in between tends to change depending on my mood.

1. The Man Who Would Be King
[Easily my most favorite episode of the season. It just stirs up so many emotions, and you have no idea how much I LOVE Ben Edlund, and how excited I was to see Misha finally getting a much deserved spotlight to shine! This was perfection in both writing and acting! And it was above all, true to character!]

2. The Third Man
[Cas made his triumphant return to screen, and the Heaven arc started, this episode had me all pumped up when it aired and it still has me pumped. From Cas's overuse of air-quotes, to the three members of Team Free Will running around doing what they do best, it just made me so happy!]

3. The French Mistake
[Do I really need to explain this one? LOL! Okay, so I'm kinda pissed they killed Misha! Those assbutts! But this episode was just downright hilarious and I couldn't stop laughing! Oh boys, you are just so funny! Did I mention Ben Edlund is a genius again?]

4. Mommy Dearest
[Why I love this episode? Because all four of our guys were together, using their brains, using their smarts! This was a team effort and this was a long time coming! Bobby, Cas, Dean, and Sam, all working together like the little ragtag family that they have become! We all know where Cas's story is leading so seeing these moments of Cas being with Bobby and the boys are moments that I always want to treasure.]

5. Frontierland
[Samuel Colt, Dean and Sam going cowboy, Cas falling unconscious in Bobby's arms....there's so many things I love about this episode!!! And once again, it was our four guys together! The team ensemble episodes are the best to me!]

6. My Heart Will Go On
[Cas was willing to throw out his whole plan just to protect Sam and Dean, if that doesn't prove he cares, then I don't know what would! Cas IS the Winchesters' guardian! And it warms my heart to see Ellen and Jo both alive in this different universe, the boys even seem happier! And how could I forget Balthazar and his hatred for the Celine Dion song! LOL!]

7. Weekend at Bobby's
[One word: BOBBY!!!!!!!!!]

8. The Man Who Knew Too Much
[Even though I watched this episode with a big frown on my face, this one is up here for the simple reason that I did not see the ending coming! The show surprised me once again so I like that!]

9. Caged Heat
[It was an heart-pounding episode for me, from Meg, to Crowley, to Cas being a badass, it was just fun! Oh and Cas discovered porn and kissed Meg, impressive!!]

10. Clap Your Hands If You Believe
[Ben Edlund.....FAIRIES!!!!!!]

11. Like A Virgin
12. Appointment in Samarra
13. You Can't Handle The Truth
14. Family Matters
15. Two and A Half Men
16. All Dogs Go To Heaven
17. And Then There Were None
18. Unforgiven

19. Let It Bleed
[This episode is down here for the sole reason that this is the episode where Cas and Dean's bond officially was destroyed and I was not happy!!!! So while the acting in this was phenomenal, especially from Jensen and Misha, I just can't watch the destruction of one of the most beautiful relationship on TV, and I don't mean Ben/Lisa/Dean, I mean Cas and Dean, the angel and the Righteous Man!!!]

20. Exile on Main Street
[I guess I was just bored...kept on waiting for something but it wasn't the big exciting premiere I was hoping for...quite a disappointment after all the good premieres...]

21. Mannequin 3: The Reckoning
[Seriously.....mannequins....that's enough for me to hate this dumb episode...]

22. Live Free and Twi Hard
[I have told anyone I'm tired of vampires?]
