*ugh*

Warning folks. Don't enter if you don't want negativity. I stopped myself from saying too much on twitter because followers don't have a choice about seeing stuff there. Here ya do. So heed the warning because it ain't pretty...

Hit me!

So I'm curious. Who's writing episode reviews on Live Journal these days? Even though I seldom comment on other reactions (usually because I will voice my own here) I do like reading what others say. I'm also thinking some sort of "round up" of LJ reviews might be interesting.

Anyway - if you know of any regular LJ reviewers hit me! :)

Thanks
xx

I've been trying to write up a reaction to this ep for the last few days and I just can't seem to get the words out.

So I'll just say... )

It took me a while to catch this episode (due to being away for a family gathering), but I've finally seen it and...surprise surprise...I actually liked it! :)

(it's mostly a surprise to me be because a) it was a Duo ep and b) it had Crowley and Rowena in it and I'm generally not that interested in their dramas)

I know I shouldn't post this reaction because I really didn't like that episode but I feel the need to work out my thoughts so I'll put it here.

Please don't click and read if you loved it (and I know many did - I'm against the stride with this one *g*). I just feel like I'm getting closer and closer to being completely done.

they better have a damn good reason for this direction... )

12.10 reaction and meta rec.

12.10 reaction )

Meta Rec- if you haven't already seen [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight's meta Do I look like Paris Hilton? Dean as SPN's Cinematic Female Other I recommend you take a look. It's an in-depth look on the way Dean is filmed in the show. I confess some of it is a little over my head (the term "female-other" is something I haven't come across before), but there's certainly lots of pretty and some great observations.

a small comment in regard to this )

*sheepish wave* (and a short 12.09 reaction)

Hey guys! There's no doubt I'm a pretty bad fan these days. I rarely check LJ, I'm not really doing anything fannish and most of my stuff on Twitter is politically based. I only made one vid last year and I think that will be one more than I'll make this year. I still love the show but the drive to create or even participate is fading. I do look back at my time in fandom with a huge amount of fondness. What an amazing 10 years it's been. :)

I'm not sure how much longer I will post a reaction to episodes. I think it will mostly depend on how the episodes grab me. I am hesitant to be too negative (there's just too much to feel negative about in the real world at the moment) and I also feel writing any meta is challenging - I've lost the belief that things from one episode are connected to any other (in terms of character development etc), but I think some writers still do a great job within an episode.

Having said all that, I do have some things to say about 12.09. :)

I'm torn between not wanting to think too hard about this episode and actually thinking too darn hard about it.

I can't believe we're already up to episode 5. They seem to be going by so fast.

the theme of this episode was appropriate at least )

12.03 reaction/review

When I sit down to write these I usually have a clear idea how I felt about the episode. This one is different - I can't seem to settle on a clear response so this pretty mixed up...(but mostly positive *g*)

12.02 review/reaction

It's weird isn't it. We spend months and months waiting for the show to return and then when it has returned we spend months and months angsting over it. Some episodes create positive angst, some create negative angst.

This episode created a bit of both of those for me. So, ya know, nothing new really...;)

(this got rather long. Seems I had a bit to unpack...*oops*)

Mamma Mia, here I go again )

12.01 review/reaction

Dear Supernatural,

Welcome back!! You knocked it out of the park! \o/

Lots of Love
Me.

I think I can safely say that is my fave season opener after 2.01 (In My Time of Dying). I know 4.01 (Lazarus Rising) is pretty damn awesome too, but as it was the beginning of a season of secrecy between Sam and Dean I think I'd put that slightly behind this one.

This episode had a lot to achieve in a very short time. I'm happy to say that it not only achieved everything it had to, but it achieved it all so damn well. It was wonderfully paced and deftly crafted. There was an underlying sense of urgency and yet it never felt rushed. It even managed to get in some humour. I am so proud of my show!!

Nice to be able to squee again )
