Rewatch S14: Moriah (14x20)

1 week late by tradition! But still January, so I'm counting it as a win.

I finally bring you the final episode of my S14 rewatch - a whole year after I initially intended to be finished.

The new goal will be to get the clothing catalog updated by the end of February... we'll see how well I do at that. Once the clothing catalog is updated, I'll track down a S15 DVD (if they're out yet) and do a S15 rewatch.

Let's jump into it!

And we're done! Thank you to those who have stuck this out with me. I'm sorry that 2020 really made things so difficult for me to get things done. Overall though, I'm doing okay - but thank you all for understanding that I couldn't keep up my same efficiency as before during a global crisis.

Rewatch S14: Jack in the Box (14x19)

Happy 2021!

Now that the holidays are over, it's back to work! Which means I will FINALLY watch the final 2 episodes of S14 and update the clothing catalogue in the next few weeks - and 2020 is firmly behind us.

Unfortunately, much like the rest of 2021, we're starting off on a bit of a rough note - because this episode was written by BuckLeming, who couldn't write their way out of a paper bag, let alone a box.

CUT SCENE

Spoke too soon, it's not over, there's a cut scene... let's see what it was and why it was cut...

Okay, NOW I'm done. Sorry for being snarky.

Let me know any stray thoughts in comments.

Rewatch S14: Absence (14x18)

I'm still alive!

Trying to do every two weeks at the very least, because every week wasn't working. I can't believe it's been over a year since I started this rewatch and I'm still not done. I'd say "I'm the worst" but I think the actual correct answer is "2020 is the worst"

The good news is that I still have a job and it's paying me fairly well - the bad news is that it takes up a LOT of my time. I've been working part time for the past two years, so switching to full time has been an adjustment.

Rewatch S14: Game Night (14x17)

Okay! Obviously mid-week doesn't work for rewatches, since I didn't factor in needing to cook dinner for myself and then getting too sleepy.
 
So, weekend rewatches! I will try to be good and finish these in the next 4 weeks, given that I only have 4 episodes left of this season.
 
Also, here's a tip: If you want to fix your DVD player, just buy a new DVD player and then your old one will magically start working again and you'll have two DVD players.

... give me one more week!

I didn't do rewatched last weekend, because I wanted a little bit of breathing space after the finale. I wanted to actulaly feel like the show was over. I got my timeline up on the SuperWiki and I ordered a new DVD player.

I was all set to do rewatches this weekend, but I was busy with work and experiencing my (extremely limited) social life yesterday, and then today I got smacked in the face with a case of "absolutely exhausted and can barely keep eyes open". I save the rewatch for after sunset, thinking that it made sense to do my TV watching at night... but I didn't realize how SUPER tired I was going to get, even though I slept in this morning.

Anyway, this is all to say that I'm going to aim for Thursday now.

I know I keep making excuses as to why S14 rewatches are literally taking me 1+ year(s), but I'm also just trying to be transparent. The last couple of years, I've been working part-time, but these days I'm working until 7pm each night and also for a little bit on Saturdays - and while it's infinitely better for my bank-account, finding time for my hobbies has been a challenge. 

I'm hoping to do better if I can be disciplined enough to do rewatches on Thursdays, since I was able to set aside Thursdays when the show was airing to walk to my friends' place and devote 3+ hours to dinner, Supernatural and a Quick Reaction.

Updated Timeline on Wiki

Just a note that I just posted the Season 15 Timeline on the SuperWiki

I'll update this LJ with it too, but probably not until tomorrow.

Also, I realized while I was posting it that I completely forgot to timeline one of the episodes, sadly, it's a BuckLeming episode and I really don't want to watch it again right now, so I'm going to leave it until I do my S15 rewatch sometime next year - and in the meantime I'll vaguely hope that someone else does the work for me.

I couldn't actually get many (read ANY) dates out of S15. They got to wise to my ways, I guess.

Quick Reaction: 15x20 Carry On

My final quick reaction. I've drank a lot of wine, just to make it special (also, I just wanted another glass of wine).

So, I'll do my disclaimer, just to be extra sentimental: I've written this up after drinking a lot of wine and taking very crappy notes. Nothing is meant to be 100% accurate, but I do my best. Don't correct me unless I specifically ask you to. Also, I like to keep things as positive as possible here, so please don't comment unless you can balance your negatives with positives. 

And with that, let's get into the reaction... though, I'll do a little spoiler here: I liked it.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, but if you didn't, please remember my positivity rule - I know I kind of broke it myself last week, but I'm back on the positivity train tonight.

Supernatural has meant a lot to me over the years. I met the friend that I spend tonight with at a Supernatural convention in 2010... and it was through her that I met half my friends in this city. Supernatural also reintroduced me to my love of writing, and I've written two first drafts of two novels since then... one of which is actually halfway decent, and also 160k words, and one of these days I may actually get it edited. 

It's also given me immensely fun (for me) projects over the years. And while I know that I'm a whole year behind on my clothing catalogue, I plan to have the S15 Timeline up on the weekend if I can. 

It's been fun.

I will see you back here for rewatches as I continue to make my way through S14. I won't be done with Supernatural for a bit yet. ;)

But, this is indeed, my final Quick Reaction for Supernatural. I hope you enjoyed it. :)

Rewatches - So, guess whose DVD player broke...

Mine did.

It did this to me once before and then worked fine the next day, so I cancelled my order for a new one... but it's frustrating, because maybe it'll work fine tomorrow again, but tomorrow might not have time to do a rewatch. I should just order a new one regardless, I guess.

Anyway, sorry that it's now going to be over two weeks since my last rewatches. At this point, I guess I'll be closing out the series before I even make it to Game Night in S14. 

Yarr... I feel bad about the amount I've slacked off when it comes to rewatches this year... and now this.

Anyway, I'll go see what external DVD player I can get shipped to my house during a pandemic, and hopefully I'll be back next weekend. This entry was originally posted at https://hells-half-acre.dreamwidth.org/591962.html.

Quick Reaction: 15x19 Inherit the Earth

.... so.....

... I'm not going to lie... I hated that. These are my least favourite writers, and it appears they wanted to go out with a bang - making sure to remind me of every single reason I hate them on their way out the door.

I know I have rules around here about staying positive, but I kind of feel like I don't want to summarize this one for you. I don't think I can summarize and not lose my temper and turn this into a rant. So, even though it's the penultimate episode (though now I'm confused about that), I think I'm just going to do lists:

Alright, everyone please give me more positives in the comments. If you liked the episode, I want to be happy for you.  ETA: Actually, I take it back, people liking this episode pisses me off more. If you liked it - I'm happy for you. But please don't tell me.
