I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of everything Jane Austen. I love the novels, and I enjoy the movie and television adaptations of her stories almost as much. So, when I realized that there was a new adaptation of Austen’s 1815 novel Emma, I knew I had to watch it right away.

First of all, I have to say that this is a beautiful movie. You can tell there was a huge budget for costumes and sets. The whole movie was a visual feast for the eyes. …

Okay. The show has now convinced me that Dean is going off the rails.

However, I’m not saying that for the reasons that Sam and Cas have been putting forward. I’m only saying it because he 1) beat up Cas and 2) killed the youngest Styne kid. Up until this point, I think Dean’s actions have been pretty logical. True, he’s been a bit more aggressive and amped up then he would be normally. However, he wasn’t really out of control; he seemed to be keeping the mark more or less in check.

For instance, in this episode, Sam and…

Okay, I’m just going to say it: EVERYTHING 👏 THAT 👏 HAPPENED 👏 IN 👏 THIS 👏 EPISODE 👏 WAS 👏 SAM’S 👏 FAULT.

Seriously, I am ENRAGED with him. Charlie is DEAD because of him!

The whole situation just made me so angry! I mean, Sam has thrown caution to the winds and deceived Dean in some very drought and dangerous situations, all in the service of removing the Mark of Cain, which Dean is managing very well at the moment!

That’s not to say that Dean should have the mark long term, but it’s not a hair on…


Cats occupy a very unique place in the story of art. For some reason or another, felines have been a source of inspiration for artists from all ages of history and from all corners of the world. However, not all pieces of cat art are created equal. Simply put, some pieces of art capture the spirit of the cat better than others.

Below, I’ve listed some of my favorite paintings of cats: pieces of art that-in my opinion- capture the various attitudes and personalities of the elegant and mysterious cat.

Cat, 1976 by Andy Warhol — Andy Warhol was a…

I’m pleased to say that I actually really enjoyed this episode! In my opinion, there have been a lot of underwhelming or otherwise unpleasant episodes this season, so this one was a pleasant surprise.

First of all, seeing Claire safe takes a huge weight off my mind. Cas and the Winchesters left her in a pretty precarious state (both physically and emotionally) the last time she was on the show, so it’s a relief to see that she’s managing to take care of herself.

I’m also happy to know that she’s on much better terms with the Winchesters and with…

Not gonna lie, that episode was pretty disturbing. Like, it was DARK (even by Supernatural standards).

I found the idea of the Saint Louis suicide house to be completely bone-chilling, and the machinations of the Werther box were positively sadistic.

I felt so horrible for Suzie; the idea of her living in that horrible house for decades and spending her whole life guarding that box is really sad.

In short, the actual plot of this episode was really distressing and difficult to watch.

However, it was even more difficult to watch Sam deceive Dean.

Now, I know that Dean has…

Well, this episode was INTERESTING.

First of all, I have to say that I think Sam is wrong and Dean is right. Nothing good can come out of that book. Even if they successfully get the mark off of Dean, it sounds like some sort of equally evil magic (or more evil!) is going to be the result. Plus, since Sam didn’t destroy the book, the Styne family is going to keep coming for it!

Don’t get me wrong, they seem like good villains, but we already have enough problems in this season without adding additional villains.

Speaking of villains…

Seeing Bobby in Heaven has got to be the best part of season ten.

Who didn’t love seeing him drinking a beer in his old scruffy hat? Also, sitting in a cozy library listening to music seems pretty heavenly to me. I think Bobby has created a very nice little paradise for himself.

Kidding aside, I have to admit that this episode had a lot of NICE moments. The writers of Supernatural must have heard me complaining in my last review and decided to show me up. I was pleasantly surprised by the direction of this episode! …

Okay, I’m going to be honest here, I really disliked this episode.

I just found the entire plot to be boring, irrelevant, and flat.

I didn’t care about Isabella’s story of murdering an artist in sixteenth century Italy, and I didn’t care about her ghostly drama-which took up a large chunk of the episode. It was also pretty unclear why she decided to kill the people that she killed. It seemed a bit random. There wasn’t a clear motive there.

I’m also so, so tired of hearing about the Mark of Cain. We’re not making any progress on this issue…

I don’t think I can deal with another episode like this. It was too gross!

Like, I’m sorry, but I don’t need to see blood-sucking worms coming out of people’s mouths! Even for Supernatural, it was a bit over the top. In fact, I watched this episode with my roommate, and she was literally gagging during some parts of this episode. I’m not going to lie, the repulsiveness of it all kind of ruined my enjoyment of “The Things They Carried.”

The electrocution scene and the various grisly murders sprinkled throughout this episode didn’t help either.

Okay, let me set…
