You know, I normally don't do this until a season is over, but Nicole over at Salted & Burned started it!  

First, I highly recommend you check out her look back at season six so far, which gives her ranking of each season six of episode from worst to best along with her rationale.  It's a fun read while we're staring down the end of January still without a return from Hellatus. (I mean, no new episodes in January?  It just stings.)

Ramblings On...Season Six - The Road So Far...

So, since Nicole stuck her neck out, I'll just give my quick ranking, just 'cause I'm feeling cheeky on this Sunday evening:

11.  All Dog's Go To Heaven
10.  Exile on Main Street
9.  Family Matters
8.  Caged Heat
7.  Two and a Half Men
6.  The Third Man
5.  You Can't Handle The Truth
4.  Live Free and Twihard
3.  Clap Your Hand If You Believe
2.  Appointment In Samarra
1.  Weekend At Bobby's

Anyone else want to play?  Share your answers here and/or at Salted & Burned.  You don't even need to give your reason for the rankings, although if anyone played the "pulled it out of a hat" game, I'd like to know about that!

I think the season has been really uneven, but I felt that way last season too, even stopped watching it for a few episodes in the middle, then it all came together in the end and all was forgiven. I am hoping that will be the case this season too. Really hoping, no, counting on it.

11. All Dogs Go To Heaven --
A waste of episode space.
10. Family Matters
9. Two and a Half Men
8. The Third Man
7. Live Free or Twi-Hard -
I think this had the greatest potential, but was badly paced. I remember it more for what failed about it than what was good -- and there were some really good scenes.
6. Caged Heat
5. You Can't Handle the Truth
4. Clap Your Hands
3. Weekend at Bobby's
2. Exile on Main Street -- it was awkward and strangely paced but I liked it because it mirrored how much of an outsider Dean felt in both worlds and how awkward/uneasy he felt about the way his brother returned.
1. Appointment in Samarra
Just really liked this episode. Dean's risk, Sam's desperation, Death and souls. It left me wanting more

8. Live Free or Twihard

For me the first four episodes are the best of the season, especially if you ignore all the soullessness stuff which I disliked immensely (although Jared still rocked it completely!) For me the turning point of disappoinment came at Life Free or Twi-Hard so it remains at the bottom of the heap for me and all the goodness that results from AIS can't lift it above the second worst episode for the Sam and Bobby scenes (acted brilliantly) left me flat completely.

11.Exile On Main Street
10.Two And A Half Men (Both make my list of worst episodes ever-I don't even remember what happened in these two)

9.Live Free or Twi-Hard (definite contender for most disappointing episode ever. Just did not live up to the hype other than the whole Sam watching Dean get turned moment I cant remember the rest of the episode)

8.You Cant Handle The Truth
7.The Third Man
6.All Dogs Go To Heaven (These 3 were neither here nor there)

The Top 5 change around quite a bit depending how I'm feeling.

Boy, we really are all over the place! My top five are my top five, really too close to call. The only one I really disliked, although it had some cool stuff in it, was All Dogs go to Heaven. And I couldn't tell you why, I guess it's a "gut" reaction, like some people's dislike of TwiHard

I really can't rate the shows, as I love nearly all Supernatural episodes (except Criss Angel is a Douchebag, for some strange reason even I don't understand) and I (hiding behind my chair) even liked All Dogs Go to Heaven which nearly everyone hates. Loved sniper Dean and Lucky the dog.

I can say I loved Weekend at Bobbys, Exile on Main Street (love Lisa and Ben), Two and a Half Men (fun in the grocery store and the baby stuff), Clap Your Hands (faeries were fun and "FIGHT THOSE FAERIES!" was a hoot.)
Live Free or Twi-Hard (hated what Sam did but loved badass vampire Dean with his foot on the vamp's decapitated head). And You Can't Handle the Truth reaffirmed my opinion that Sam was not our Sammy, so his attitude didn't bother me as much as before.

A season that I believe will be looked at differently when all is said and done. As long as the real Sam and Dean return with their previous bond intact I can take almost any variation in plot. It is the brothers that I care passionately about so all the arcs and plotlines are just window dressing for me beside the family relationship.

Just need the old fussing, feuding, teasing and annoying each other brothers back and knowing the love is there again between the both of them. That to me is the heart and soul of this show and the reason I love it above and beyond all other shows that ever are or were.

I really can't rate the episode either. Quite often they change depending on the mood I am in. Even episodes I found hard to watch (Twihard) were still damn good episodes. I think (think!) these are my top three at the moment.

3. Exile on Main Street - Back from the dead, start of a new season and forearms galore.

2. Clap your Hands - Pure unadulterated, light relief after the weight of the episode before it, 'Nipples?', 'I had a close encounter Sammy, and I won' 'You should take a shower' 'I SHOULD take a shower', and the boys with some bruises, finally! (Seriously, they get their asses handed to them day in and day out and nary a bruise between them. They must use loads of Arnica cream!)

1. Caged Heat- Just love this one. I'm sure there's loads wrong with this episode in terms of pacing yadda yadda but I'm not that sophisticated. I just like it is all. Sam and Dean aren't at complete odds. Castiel being an angel. Uber efficient Sammy. Dean sassing off every demon he sees. Crowley go bye-bye. Most importantly, I can see the top of the mountain with this episode and the view is going to be fecking glorious!

Honourable mentions: Appointment in Samaria (because the soul is back) Weekend at Bobby's (for SPN's very own Shrek and Donkey ie Bobby and Rufus)

All of them really. I'm not fussy!

Here's hoping my top three will change come Friday night!

Really good idea for (hopefully) final week before new episodes - made me rewatch a few. Difficult task though - my list is everchanging. Latest iteration is the following:

11. The Third Man – uninteresting overall despite deliciously shirtless Winchesters
10. All Dogs Go To Heaven – average (although Sniper Dean? *thud*)
9. Caged Heat – standard good episode
8. Family Matters – standard good episode with excellent villain
7. You Can't Handle the Truth - standard good episode with excellent last scene
6. Two and a Half Men – good episode despite some OOC moments
5. Weekend at Bobby's – welcome humour, but more Winchesters needed
4. Clap your hands if you believe – great as standalone, odd placing in myth arc
3. Exile on Main Street – fascinating reveals and mirroring of pilot
2. Appointment in Samarra – Death rocks and Sam’s soul is back (hooray!)
1. Live Free and Twi-hard – heart-stopping Sam betrayal and BAMF Vamp Dean
