The Music, Season 2:
In My Time Of Dying
The recap comes to "Stranglehold", and since Carry On, Wayward Son hadn't yet become 'THE' music, it seems right. In fact, every season premier has been different, Season 3 opened to "Hell's Bells" by AC/DC and Season 4 to "You Shook Me All Night Long," again, by AC/DC (Note from Alice: "Hell's Bells" was WAY cooler). I'm cool with that, for it's the finales that I need the comfort of Carry On, Wayward Son.
"Stranglehold" by Ted Nugent
Okay, someone asked me what the inside joke was on "Heaven and Hell," which came during Dean's sex scene with Anna.  The windows fogged up, and a hand could be seen sliding down the window, a la the film Titanic.  The reason it was an inside joke?  I'll just show you the pictures, which I was finally able to find.  You'll be on the floor in laughter in no time. Of course, you might have already seen this, since I'm six months too late showing this.  I hope Jensen fired his agent after this.   

Here's a rare treat at The Winchester Family Business.  We have a guest columnist!  Faellie posted this on her livejournal site and was kind enough to share it with me.  Then, she was even kinder to let me repost it here.  Yes, its that good.  The title will certainly catch you.  A disclaimer that I make with guest posters is to please not repost this elsewhere.  Please provide a link to either this page or at

Thanks much Faellie, and I'm curious to read everyone's thoughts. 

Writers of Supernatural:
Series articles seem to be my thing this Hellatus, The Road So Far Series, compilations of each season and their accompanying music, there will be Hellatus checks throughout – if nothing else than my sanity needs a check, I’m working on the journeys of the boys along the lines of Is Sam Too Stupid to Live and How Dumb is Dean [clunky title no doubt but the title does tell you what the article(s) intend to explore] and now…because Hellatus is long…I’m gonna do some quickie articles on the writers of our beloved show.
These are not likely to be deeply complex, mind-blowing journeys of literary brilliance…I’m not Bardicvoice after all – she so rocks! But they are simply meant to take a look at the writers who have shaped the series and prick your minds and memories of the series thus far. So, this is the first in however many I manage to put together and they are completely meant to spark some discussion and sharing of thoughts and opinions, so I hope you have some fun with them.
#5 Dean bangs an angel in the back seat of the Impala "“ "Heaven and Hell"
So, why is this not higher? For one, it plays a really awful Bad Company song (I know I'm in the minority), and while it's great to see Dean covet a holy one in no other place than the back set of the treasured third main character, Dean and Anna's chemistry seem a bit off. Anna and Castiel, now I expect some fireworks! I know, Suze has her zombie alligators, I have my hot angel sex. The hand sliding down the fogged up window? I know that was an inside joke, but man did that bother me. Still, the bottom line, Dean and hot sex in the back of the Impala.  That's all that's required. At least this time it didn't involve a racist truck.  
Also, this could be REALLY wrong of me, but Dean's sex scenes are so loving, soft and intimate, while Sam really loves it rough.  So, you think the romantic in me would go with the tender stuff. No, I guess when it comes to watching, the rougher the better.  Go figure.


I was working on the top ten (or maybe twelve who knows) baddies list, and while pouring through the long list of possible candidates during a break at work, my warped mind I wrote down a hot Winchester moment instead. Then I ended up writing down ten of them. Next thing I know I'm ranking and coming up with witty comments about each one. Thus, in no time, an unplanned top ten list was born. Ah, the strange times that inspiration strikes. 
So, as an impromptu treat, I present the Top Ten Supernatural Gratuitous Moments. Today is moments 6 "“ 10 (plus an honorable mention), and tomorrow I'll present 1-5. Some of these moments will have clips, but others are best served with a single screenshot at the ideal spot that says it all.  And then some.   
Season Four Highlights/Lowlights and other stuff:
Just ‘cause I felt like dabbling in the fun of this, I present you a quick, random, somewhat thought out at other times purely emotional response to season four. 
In no way is this completely encompassing of the entire season (I think that’s three words to say the same thing – you get the point, right?)

Sure, it only took six months of unfulfilled promises, but in honor of elle2's season one articles of late, I bring you a long deserved episode recap of "Home." 
I'll just say it right now, this is one of my all time favorite episodes. It was the episode that sucked me in for good after doubts emerged from watching "Hookman" and "Bugs". The episode isn't thick on plot, but very hefty in emotion and so well played by all. We meet Missouri Mosely, psychic extraordinaire, and get to see both Winchester parents. Plus, it really jump starts Sam's mytharc and kicks off a bit of speculation that hampers us all the way to season four.

8/1 update - Bumping every time there's something new to report.  Go to the last page for the latest.

Tigershire has joked a few times on this site that she visualizes Sam and Dean retiring from hunting in Victoria, BC and starting a winery and/or art gallery.  While the vision of the boys carefully selecting grapes and holding tasting parties for their newest batches for the season makes me break out into giggles, it seems that Tigershire has proof!  

Okay maybe not, but these pictures are fun nonetheless.  Anyone have pictures of businesses, towns, counties, anything with the name "Winchester?"  Send your photos and I'd be more than proud to share them on this site.  For example, I know there's a Winchester, Maryland.  Anyone close enough to get a town sign?
