Tube Talk Tuesday: Supernatural Season 1 Episodes 10, 11

We took last week off, since my entire weekend was delightfully bookish with no time for watching TV, but we're back!

By the way, I'm pretty sure we plan to continue this through season two, so here's your chance to get caught up!

Once again, Elizabeth is in italics.

Episode 10: Asylum
Synopsis: Sam and Dean investigate an abandoned sanitarium and discover that the patients had held a revolt against the cruel and unusual punishments inflicted by the head doctor.

First off, I have always thought asylum themed horror things work really well. They freak me out! How about you?

Yes! They terrify me, but I'm always weirdly fascinated by them as well. This one was definitely scary.

I thought it was a pretty lousy place for a date, on the other hand.

Right - doesn't anybody have enough sense NOT to go into the creepy haunted building? Don't they know what show they're in?? =)

How did you like the Sixth Sense type the ghosts are trying to tell you something twist?

I kinda like the ghosts being interactive - at least that way, you can figure out what to do with them! Did you wonder at all about what Sam revealed to the therapist?

I'm sure all will be revealed.

I thought it was interesting that a few episodes ago, in Skin, Not-Dean aired out all Dean's resentments about their relationship, and now in this episode, Not-Really-Sam aired out all of Sam's resentments. Do you think the brothers will ever actually TALK about this stuff, or just keep revealing things they're mad about under the influence of some weird demon/ghost/spirit/etc.?

Well, it's a bit like being drunk, really. You reveal things you wouldn't under normal circumstances. I do think it will be a continuing device because it gives added story weight to all the creepies!

Did you really think that Sam would pull the trigger? I was totally shocked.

It was shocking indeed!

Episode 11: Scarecrow
Synopsis: Sam and Dean finally make contact with their father, but he tells them to stop looking for him and sends them on another ghost-hunting job.

I thought this episode was spectacularly creepy!
Me too - I really liked the way they adapted this mythology.

Sam and Dean had some dissent in this episode...how did you feel about Sam taking off to his find his dad?

I believe the brothers splitting up is always a bad idea. They work so much better together, and apart you just know something bad is going to happen.
And are you getting at all irritated with Dad's whole "You don't need to know what's going on, just do what I tell you" routine?

Well, yes actually, but I am used to it from shows like 24 ;)

And blondie? Did you have any feelings about her?

Meg? Meg is NOT RIGHT. I am telling you now, she is going to be trouble.

Were you as ticked as I that the town assumed they had to sacrifice Emily and not themselves?

Well, yes. But people who believe in creepy scarecrow gods probably can't be reasoned with. And also couldn't help but wonder, if each scarecrow is made out of the latest guy they kill, what the heck happens to the girls?
Well, they were right to, right? I mean they were given favor...the god was real. Maybe the girls get eaten?

And what about that ending? Did you suspect blonde girl was some sort of creepazoid?

Um, yes. Meg is bad news, kids.

Elizabeth has our chat from episodes 12 and 13 up!

See you next week!

I love this show and I never seem to find the time to watch tv these days, so I love these chats. Just thought you might like to know.

I love this show! I DVR it and I'm always a couple of weeks behind. They've included some great characters in this newest season, a couple of cranky, butt-kickin', take no prisoners type of angels. I was thinking they were archangels, but the last episode had an archangel and it made the current angels look like pussycats!
Meg's a great creepy character, and yep, I do/did get annoyed with cryptic bossy dad sometimes!

I remember both the scarecrow and asylum episode were uber creepy!
