Here are my ratings for Supernatural season one, episodes four, five and six.

Episode 4: Phantom Traveler
A former client of Dean’s calls him up when a plane crashes under very mysterious circumstances. After another strange crash occurs, Dean and Sam must board a flight in danger to save the other passengers, even though Dean is terrified of flying.
Rating: 9.5/10. It was a good, and very comical episode!

Episode 5: Bloody Mary
A man dies of an apparent stroke in front of a mirror but Sam and Dean believe something, or someone (Bloody Mary), may be behind his death. Dean tries to help Sam open up about his girlfriend’s death after Sam lets it slip that there’s some information that he hasn’t told Dean about Jessica’s death.
Rating: 10/10. Bloody Mary is dark, creepy, and is one of my favourite episodes from season one!

Episode 6: Skin
Sam’s friend Zach is accused of murder, so Sam offers to help out by checking up on his sister Rebecca, and looking into the case. Rebecca claims that her brother could not have committed the murder because he was with her at the time the murder occurred. Unfortunately, all the physical evidence the police have points to Zach being at the scene of the crime. Sam and Dean have to find out what happened, and wonder could Zach have been at two places at the same time?
Rating: 8.5/10. I like that this episode is fleshy and gross, and has a few particularly funny lines.

fearFear The Walking Dead premieres tonight at 9pm! I am curious about the show, and what it will contribute to what we know from watching The Walking Dead. The thing is though, with being a huge TWD fan, I am not holding out hope that this new show will be as good, especially since it will be all new characters. Not that I think it will be terrible, but I am cautiously curious about how things will go. What do you all think? Will you be watching tonight?

Here’s a fun fact about a scene with Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

During the scene in season two finale ‘Becoming’ when Giles is tortured by Drusilla, Anthony Stewart Head put chilli peppers in his mouth in order to look convincingly agitated and physically wrecked. Pity poor Juliet Landau, who had to kiss that mouth.

This doesn’t sound pleasant!

Here’s a fun fact I found today about Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Before Willow began dating Tara in season four, Joss Whedon had toyed with the idea of making Xander gay instead.

Imagine if Xander had been gay! Crazy.

I found a fun fact about Oz in Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

Joss Whedon has described Oz (Seth Green) as “the only character that was really ever based on somebody I knew”, the person in question being a very cool college acquaintance who played guitar.

I found an interesting fact about Buffy’s death in season five.

Buffy’s death was foreshadowed two full seasons in advance. In the season three finale ‘Graduation Day’, Buffy and Faith share a coma dream in which Faith cryptically says: “Little Miss Muffet, counting down to 730”. At this time, Buffy had two years (730 days) left to live. The line also foreshadows the arrival of Dawn, who is likened to Little Miss Muffet a few times throughout season five. I really hate Dawn, and Buffy’s death was brutal!
