#1 Sam in skimpy towel "“ "Hell House"
Remember how I said when creating this list I wrote down one moment that turned into ten? This was what started it. It came to mind because I recently turned on someone to Supernatural in my Taekwondo class. After watching my season one DVDs, the main reaction was, "it took 17 episodes to see one of them shirtless!" By that time, she hadn't gone through the long drought of season three.   
Let's face it, this is why gratuitous moments exist on television. To get that one quick snippet that people will talk about for years. In this case, we found out that Sam Winchester dressing in layers was doing him a huge disservice. Sure, he's been seen shirtless since then, but none of those shots have been as revealing as this one. What's even more amazing is Jensen was able to get through this scene with a straight face. I'm sure he shut that bathroom door and died laughing. As for me, I just suffered serious jaw damage after it dropped to the floor.    

You know you want the back view...

Oh, I want front again...


That's a top ten list!  Any ones that were your favorites?  Please share!

Wheeeee!! The shorts made it, the shorts made it!!! :D

I can't say anything else Alice, yous top ten lists are pure wonderfulness. I'm sure I can think of a few more moments to mention here, but for the time being I'm a bit too distracted to think.. *scrolls back up to resume drooling at Sam*

Good list. The one scene that I absolutely love is the whole, Dean out of hell, Pamela Barnes, "You are so not invited!" bit. That was right up there for brotherly moments, it was funny as hell, and a bit naughty - don't you think?

As much as I love top ten lists - ten just doesn't seem to be enough for this show. A bare minimum would be a top 25 at this rate!!!

Gawd ... I'm trying to think of a comment here and I just keep going back to those last shots of Sam ...
( What were you just saying about lecherous Surf Mums ... ? )

Right! Yes! OK! Er ... Totally with you on the Angel Sex Must Happen thing but not for a while and a while as we want some sizzeling tension first and with this shows tendancy towards defered satisfaction that means you could pencil it in around season 25 ... :lol:

Also with you on the Wham-Bam-Thanky ou-Mam rather than the Smoochy-Loverma n approach ... I suspect this is something to do with the fact that once one has a house full of kids it's fast sex or no sex!

This is all a bit highly charged for this hour of the morning, I'm off for a cold shower and a cup of bromide. :lol:

Sam in skimpy towel!! I was so hoping to see what place this one was getting, and you made it #1! Of all the gratuitous moments in this show (and we've got some) this is my #1 too and its the only one that once in a while pops out in my head, I wonder why? :lol:

I agree it was the best moment - esp as it was so unexpected. I had such a OMFG moment. I was just expecting when you saw Dean sprinkle the powder that it would cut to Sam itching (ie the later scene) that moment was - plot wise - completely unnecessary. One for the fangirls definatly!

And yes layers do them a complete disservice.

Ok after however many viewings of this episode i've just noticed the chintz-style towel Sam is rocking. It's awful. Are there horses or deer or something on it, to go with the room decor.... wow that's a nasty towel.....
# Bevie 2009-06-06 13:32
Good choices Alice!

My number 1 is Dean and Anna in the back of the Impala. I may be in the minority, but I really liked Anna, as she was sweet and kind to Dean when he needed some.

Dean's lovemaking really turns me on, but Sam's roughhouse, not so much.

I guess seeing the shapeshifter in 'Skin' shirtless doesn't count because it's not really Dean? That did come before Sam in the towel.

The shorts? Yowwzaa! Those thighs!!! Whew!

And, the boys in chains! Right on!

You nailed it! All totally gratuitous! All fun!!!! I think the Sam stuff is most amazing b/c they kept portraying him as this geeky, innocent thing. He never was! His hot, agressive love making should have put that to rest in season 2. I know it did for me.

Aweseome list! Dean in shorts - yes! Sam in a towel - hell yes!

Um, Sera, Jeremy and Ben? Write more scenes like these please! 'Specially those shirtless, Biceps of Doom scenes. Thank ya kindly.

Wow, I'm out of commission for a little while (stupid bus hit my stupid car) and I miss a ton of great articles!
I love your top ten lists Alice, I find them endlessly amusing and usually very similar to my own preferences. What a great list to read/watch over and over (drooling, of course).

Bevie - I like(d) Anna too and enjoyed that scene!

I wonder if we'll get any gratutious Cas scenes in the future? I'm curious. This season seems especially rich with drooling material. I want my DVDs!!

Hi, Elle,

I've wondered where you've been as you usually comment here and there...are you all right? Stupid bus vs. stupid car does not sound good at all, hope you are all right.
# Narcissus 2009-06-10 20:57 least it was a bus and not a semi ;-) But I do hope you and our car are both fine..
# Elle 2009-06-11 00:42
Elle2 and Narcissus,
Thank's for the concern - I am happy it wasn't a semi! My car (which I've only had for a few months, naturally) is okay and I am getting there ;-).

I missed the site though and have many articles to catch up on!

However, for future reference stroke "get hit by a [stupid] bus" off your list of 'Ways to Pass Hellatus'. I really cannot stress that enough. 8-)
# Suze 2009-06-11 03:12
OUCH! Poor old you ( and poor new car ... ) Glad you're OK though ... How's the bus? :lol:

Narcissus is right ... Luckily it wasn't the Big Black Truck Of Doom! ( cue Creedence ... )
# elle2 2009-06-11 12:12
Elle, Done! I've updated my "Ways to Pass Hellatus" and any reference to injury, vehicular or otherwise has been removed...thank s for that sage advice.

Glad you're getting there...I'll work some more on my next article so you have even more to read.

Ironic I should read this while eating chocolate cake. Even an angel know these are two of a girl's favorite things!

Hey Alice! I agree besides the one emphatic "Oh baby, are you ready for love?" that song is just bad!

Dean getting out of bed to go meet up with Cas in nothing but a tee and his boxer briefs should get an honorable mention! Also, always got the feeling that the cougars ogling Dean at Ben's party was a fan joke, but hey it sure was funny!
