Supernatural 300th Episode: Winchester Reunion

Emotional episodes are quite rare for the long-running Supernatural.  For its 300th episode, John Winchester (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) returns to spend a memorable dinner with his family.  What makes the episode bittersweet is that it gives John the chance to likewise spend precious moments with his wife Mary who died when Sam was still a baby.  The first time John and Mary see each other was absolutely touching.

My relationship with the tv series Supernatural is quite unusual.  I don’t go gaga over it and I certainly don’t think it’s something to talk about with friends.  But I still manage to spend time every week to watch an episode without growing tired of it after 14 seasons.  I am not really sure what it is about this series that makes it endearing to its audience.  It’s like an old pillow you’ve had for years but you do not have the heart to throw away.

Sense8 Finale: Amor Vincit Omnia



I know I have been away for a long time.  Aside from work, I had new challenges in life I had to face. But if there was anything that would bring me back, it was Sense8.

When Netflix announced Sense8 would no longer be continued after season 2, I was heartbroken.  I really loved the series, the concept, and most especially the characters.  I was hooked on Sun  and Lito, my fave characters.  I couldn’t believe I would not see them again.  I loved how Sun was such a badass despite all the difficulties she was facing.  And I loved how Lito was such a drama queen that never failed to make me laugh. I was glad to know I wasn’t alone.  A lot of fans clamored for more.  I was among those that signed the petition to  revive the series. ( Read more )
