So you've seen our #15 picks in our Top #15 "Supernatural" episodes list. I wonder if you agreed with our choices? I think we each struggled to get our lists down to 15 and rank them and as Alice said, not make them all #1! It's really hard! And it sure doesn't get any easier the further into the list we go!
Anyway, here are our choices for #14.
"It's a Terrible Life"
I find that I watch this episode quite a lot. It's on high rotation on my rewatch list. I love how the boys still come together, even though they're different people. They still work brilliantly as a team, even though they thought they'd never worked together. Thinking on their feet, tossing weapons back and forth. I love it. It shows that no matter what, they will always be this amazing duo.
It's a neat haunting story and it's nice and gory. I like gory. The microwave head cooking scene, the pencil to the neck, the elevator chop! Icky and awesome.
It's a really clever script. It's funny. It has great references, from The Ghostfacers, to Madison and the vet clinic, to Bob, Ellen and Jo, to the boy's names Smith & Wesson. Clever.
I also totally love Zachariah. I love that smug, fat-faced angel! He's just so awful!
Favourite Quote: Dean: Save it for the health club, pal.
Favourite Scene:I adore the montage at the top. Supernatural gives great montage.
But my favourite scene is when Zachariah tells Dean why he loves hunting. There have been moments in the last couple of seasons where I've felt like sitting Dean down to watch this scene. Zachariah: "You're a hunter. Not because your dad made you, not because God called you back from hell, but because it is what you are. And you love it. You'll find your way to it in the dark every single time and you're miserable without it. Most folks live and die without moving anything more than the dirt it takes to bury them. You get to change things. Save people. Maybe even the world. All the while you drive a classic car and fornicate with women. This isn't a curse, it's a gift!" And you can even see Dean begrudingly agrees....at least about the fornicating bit!
Yup. Right on you smug, fat-faced angel you!
