I'm guessing the sedan was originally a hand-me-down from the Dad to the eldest son. Could have originally been a "family" car, hence the 4-doors...or, the only way the wife would allow the husband to buy an Impala is if it had 4-doors...for the family.

Suntan-KMWB is having problems with their HD receiver. They are working on the problem.

Yes, I know. Gilmore Girls tripped in and out all through the hour before. Supposedly, Q1 06 they will get it fixed up.

(From Marc Berman's Wednesday, October 19, 2005 Programming Insider column at Mediaweek.com)

at the WB, Supernatural (Overnights: 3.7/ 5; Viewers: 4.89 million, A18-49: 2.3/ 6) ranked a respectable fifth in all three categories, with retention out of Gilmore Girls of 83 percent in total viewers and 85 percent among adults 18-49

I finally watched the recent episode, was it just me or was there a plot hole big enough to drive a Durango through? How did Rebecca go from being tied to a chair all bloodied and battered to an underground sewer covered with a blanket in the same evening? She said she was walking home and everything went white? She casually walked home after being beaten by the shape shifter? Did I miss something?

Yeah, he was Alec on that show (they killed that poor show in the 2nd season with a basic reboot, too bad but it wasn't his fault)

My girlfriend has been ranting at me that he was Lana's boyfriend on Smallville, but I've never watched that show.

I had the same questions about that, very odd.

I started watching this show because of my girlfriend. She's a Gilmore Girls junkie and this comes on right after. I basically have to download NCIS the day after, the compromises of relationships!!!!!

I'm enjoying it, but as many have stated, it's popcorn entertainment. If you start looking for plot holes in a show that already has an 'out there like Pluto' premise than you are just asking for trouble.

I deleted that ep of supernatural already, so I can't tell you what happened with that Rebecca thing. He worked her over pretty good (chaines, ropes, etc), so I can't imagine she was walking ANYWHERE immediately after, not without an escort. The 'evil dean' had gotten away after all, he might have come after her again.

I know what you mean, I treat this stuff as popcorn entertainment and typically roll my eyes at some of the stuff. But the plot hole here was so discombobulating I had to rewind and rewatch just to make sure I didn't have a minor stroke and missed 10 minutes of plot. I think they must have rushed the editing or had a timing problem during shooting and they were left with a very disjointed episode. It still is a fun show.
post #128 of 2204
Watched that episode last night. It was strange that she no longer looked beaten up (think she had a split lip, though), and that she had been willing to walk anywhere alone after what she had just been through. Still like the show, though - however, I prefer the creepier episodes like the pilot and the "Bloody Mary" show the week before.

THE 2005-2006 TV SEASON
Scared Yet?

Rating TV's new creep shows

By Matt Roush, TVGuide.com

Thanks to Lost, TV has once again developed a taste for all things fantastic and spooky. Having grown up with scary movies on TV, from '30s-era Frankenstein classics to the cheesy monster romps lovingly mocked on Mystery Science Theater 3000, I'm delighted by this trend. The results can range from the truly horrific to the just plain horrible as the networks rediscover the thrills that evoke such iconic hits as The X-Files and The Twilight Zone which I'll use as my benchmark.

SUPERNATURAL (Tuesdays, 9 PM ET/PT, WB)
Alternate Title: "The Boo Brothers"
Zone-worthy? Yes, if you like campfire stories. Each punchy episode is a mini-horror movie, as two ghostbusting brothers cross the country to confront evil forces from urban and local legends. The midflight airborne exorcism was especially cool.
Drawback: The ghoul-of-the-week formula can get old, but the show delivers shivers with boyish zeal.
Fear Factor: (0-10) 7

LOL yeah I know, but I only have one tuner. I have one of the those funky a/b cable systems, so the dual tuner DVRs won't work with it. So I'm stuck with Gilmore Bleeping Girls until we move in a few weeks to a house with one line cable. Then I'm getting 2 dual tuner DVRs and she'll be banished to the bedroom for all her girly girl stuff. :-)

Last nights show was pretty good. The female couldn't act, but what are you going to do.

I do like the fact that they show the brothers spending a lot of time researching historical archives for imformation. As much time would be burnt trying to find such information. They don't just ask one or two people around the local dinner and happen upon the 'local legend' after 5 mins of snooping.

I liked last night's show too. They killed off the hot girl and kept the average looking girl alive, a major script flaw The FX with the hook guy was very well done, way better than you normally see on TV. WB isn't 5.1 here but I thought the audio was great too.

i think your girlfriend is talking about Jensen Ackles(Dean) who played Jason Teague on SMALLVILLE all last season. oddly enough they never showed Jason's body in the SMALLVILLE season pilot so maybe a guest appearance this season? or(god forbid) a SUPERNATURAL tie-in? LOL.
seriously i liked the Hookman episode as well-good SFX's, scary plot, and at last a perfectly plausible way for the bros' to blend in with the locals. and i loved them driving off to BOSTON's "Peace of Mind".

Yeah, the show still manages to creep me out once a week, which is impressive, as I'm a bit of a horror geek. I'd like to see some more 'dad mythology' episodes where they actually find traces of him, or some glimpse into why he is missing. But I'm willing to be a patient for a while longer. I'm sure they are saving it for the season cliffhanger.
post #136 of 2204
Is anyone missing any of the picture from the right side? I am missing about 6" of vertical picture on my 120" screen. The show also could be framed wrong I guess? This is with no overscan, on WB-HD here in DFW.
post #137 of 2204
It looked fine to me.
post #138 of 2204
Not a bad episode last night.. I thought they colors were a little too muted. They looked almost like CSI-NY did last season.. You got a glimpse into the wacky family life and we got to see dear old dad. The palm reader reminded me of the poltergeist (come into the light) lady. You even learn some interesting stuff about the young son. All in all not a bad tv program.

Just got finished watching this episode and agree, another excellent 44 minutes of TV. Probably second only to the Hookman episode. The mother haunting the house was obvious as soon as the psychic said them, but still, nothing wrong with that.

In regards to the comment on Poltergeist & the psychic in this episode... You have to give the show props for one thing. I believe it was Sam that said something like "While she does the Zelda Rubenstein thing."
post #141 of 2204
WOW!!!

Everything about this episode was incredible...the continuing story, Sam's voyage of personal discovery...but that plumber scene! sheez...talk about suspense. Its been a long time since a weekly television show had me practically covering my eyes begging for the inevitable not to happen. That was a classic horror scene...it was AWESOME!!!
post #142 of 2204
I thought Missouri was going to be killed by the evil spirit as she was walking through her house during that final scene, it just had that feeling to it. I was totally surprised to see their dad there, I figured maybe he had died or something.
post #143 of 2204
If the mom can come back and be a helpful spirit pal then maybe the hot girl friend will start doing that too.

Remember, we saw her spirit on the street corner looking hot at the end of the "dead boy in the lake" episode. You gotta think she'll be back.

And I agree on the comments about the suspense in the scene with the plumber - that was excellent. You knew it was going to happen, but the director made you wait and really cranked up the tension.
post #146 of 2204
IMHO another good episode last night...

Yeah, one of those moments you KNEW exactly what was going to happen and it still scared the hell out of you lol

Yeah, let's see where this dad thing is going to go...any thoughts on what he meant by 'the truth'? (his reason for not contacting his kids).

I wonder if Sam's new abilities have something to do with his mother/girlfriend's deaths?

Could very well be....

Is anyone else still watching this show? At the beginning of the season, I wasn't expecting a lot, but I think the show is realy coming into its own.

Tonight's show had the feeling of a good X Files episode. The story moved along nicely, the hook was well set up, and the end felt right. I also like the look of the look of the show, with its muted colors and sharp details.
