  • Be spontaneous: Make a list!

    Okay, I am bored and one of my favourite distractions when I am bored is making lists. I took that cue from Nick Hornby's protagonist in 'High Fidelity' who always made lists about everything to simplify things in his life and although lists are always inadequate and you usually forget the most important things, it's just fun!

    So make some Top 5 lists for Supernatural:
    1. Top 5 Season 1 episodes
    2. Top 5 Season 2 episodes
    3. Top 5 Dean moments
    4. Top 5 Sam moments
    5. Top 5 brother moments
    6. Top 5 MotW/Creepy moments

    Okay, I'll start:

    1. Top 5 S1 episodes
    Faith
    Nightmare
    Shadow
    Something Wicked
    Devil's Trap

    2. Top 5 S2 episodes (so far)
    In My Time Of Dying
    Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things
    Hunted
    Nightshifter
    Born Under A Bad Sign

    3. Top 5 Dean moments
    Dead In The Water: Dean talking to Lucas
    Nightmare: ?As long as I am around, nothing bad is going to happen to you.'
    Everybody Loves A Clown: Dean, crowbar, Metallicar .. ?nuff said
    The Usual Suspects: The video confession
    Houses Of The Holy: ?There's just random unpredictable evil that rips you to shreds'

    ? as a bonus all instances in which Dean talks to himself

    4. Top 5 Sam moments
    Faith: Sam's phone call to John
    Devil's Trap: (look to Dean into the rear view mirror) ?No sir, not everything.'
    In My Time Of Dying: ?We were just starting to be brothers again'
    Everybody Loves A Clown: ?Too Little, Too Late.'
    CSPWDT: Sam watching porn (c'mon a classic!)

    ? as a bonus all instances in which Sam goes all emo on the witnesses they interrogate


    5. Top 5 brother moments
    Scarecrow: Sam & Dean's phone call
    Shadow: ?I want us to be a family again!'
    In My Time Of Dying: Oujia board scene
    CSPWDT: Dean opening up to Sam about how he feels
    Hunted: ?You can't protect me! I can try!'

    ? and as a bonus: all instances in which they do something in unison

    6. Top 5 MotW/creepy moments
    Skin: the shedding scene (still can't watch that)
    Asylum: the set was just eerie
    The Benders: the whole family was so incredibly creepy!
    Simon Said: the mind rape scene
    Born Under A Bad Sign: possessed!Sam toying with Jo was completely terrifying

    And what do we learn from that list? That I am a complete sucker for the angst/drama/emo stuff .. go figure!

    Okay I have decided to take a crack at this but I can only answer the first three categories right now. I will have to think more about the other three.

    Here it goes:

    1. Top 5 S1 episodes

    Scarecrow
    Faith
    Shadow
    Something Wicked
    Devil's Trap

    2. Top 5 S2 episodes (so far)

    Crossroad Blues
    Hunted
    Nightshifter
    Born Under A Bad Sign
    Heart

    3. Top 5 Dean moments (although that list changes all the time!)

    Faith: the last conversation between Dean and Layla! I loved their chemistry and the depth of emotion that Dean conveyed in this scene.

    Nightshifter: the entire episode! Dean is so self-confident and in charge in this episode, which makes him even sexier than usual!

    Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things: the last scene of the episode where Dean confesses his feelings of guilt over John's death to Sam! Angsty crying Dean just breaks my heart!

    Heart: Dean flinching at the sound of the gun shot and spilling tears for Sammy! So sad!

    What Is And What Should Never Be: The very last scene of the episode where Dean looks so heartbroken at having lost so much in his life. That scene just breaks my heart!


    Top 5 uses of classic rock songs

    Blue Oyster Cult: Don't Fear The Reaper (Faith)
    Ozzy Osbourne: Road To Nowhere (Something Wicked)
    Jefferson Airplane: White Rabbit (Hunted)
    Styx: Renegade (Nightshifter)
    AC/DC: Back in Black (Bloodlust)

    I will edit this post as soon as I figure out the other categories.

        A work in progress...

        Songs:
        Renegade - Styx (Nightshifter)
        Road to Nowhere - Ozzy (SW)
        Silent Lucidity - Queensryche (Heart)
        Back in Black - AC/DC (Bloodlust)
        On the Road Again - REO (BUABS

        S1
        Faith
        Phantom Traveler
        Salvation
        Bloody Mary
        Benders

        S2
        Houses of the Holy
        BUABS
        Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things
        Heart
        Everybody Loves a Clown

        Okay, I really tried to not pick what other people had for these next few, but I adore all the moments already listed.

        Dean Moments only five? this is going to be tough to figure only five per episode. what? for the series?!!! *thud*Impossible!

        Hookman - "You don't have to go to college to be a genius" after explaining about rock salt in shotgun shells. CHOSEN BECAUSE I love how Dean has his own sense of smarts and is so proud of himself even though he basically has an appearance of being not bright.

        Pilot - The bridge defending mom. CHOSEN BECAUSE it's very endearing that a young man still has so much respect for his mom (and therefore women).

        Salvation - His remaining calm while Sam tries to provoke him about going after the demon. (heck if I can remember that actual quote while Sam's holding him against the wall). CHOSEN BECAUSE I love how Dean gets choked up when telling how much he loves his family.

        Crossroad Blues - the entire scene with the demoness CHOSEN BECAUSE I love Dean's cockiness, Dean's Impala, Dean's easy lying and deception, but most of all that Dean is grossed out by the hot chick because she's a demoness. Way to go Dean not being enticed by the dark side.

        IMTOD - Final scenes with the Reaper. I love his entire speech about having to be there to save Sammy. I love the ambiguity on whether he was going to peacefully chose to move on or be hardheaded and stick around to hell with the consequences.

        Sam Moments
        ELAC - "We don't want normal. We want this"
        Hellhouse- The glue on the beer bottle. "I did"
        Nightshifter- Taking out the two swat members with only his bare hands.
        Scarecrow - Rescuing Dean and telling him he stole a car to get there.
        IMTOD - At the salvage yard, checking out the Impala and telling Bobby they were saving it.

        Brotherly Moments
        ELAC - Dean leaving the clown chair for Sam
        Phantom Traveler - investigating the plane and dean and his homemade emf
        Heart - rock, paper, scissors "Dean, always with the scissors."
        Tall Tales - Can I say all of Dean's tales about Sammy? Well what about when Bobby lectures them at the table telling them they're blind and they should have known it was a trickster.
        Nightmares - Final scene. "Bend this." and "You have one thing Max didn't have" "Dad?" "No, me"

        MOTW/Creepy Scenes
        Skin-Love the icky strip scene
        ELAC - OMG those kids putting out their hands and leading the clowns into the house and parents rooms!
        DMB, Bloodlust - Love the Vampire fangs descending!
        Crossroad Blues - the hellhound coming, the wind and the noises, especially the scratches
        Provenance - Millie as the creepy little girl and then love her getting incinerated, fire fire poof!

            Okay, so I promised Chris a long, long time ago that I'd do this, and I never did. I didn't promise to answer all questions, though

              Now, since I made my first list just after BUABS aired I feel the urge to revise my S2 list, so here it goes:

              Top 5 S2 episodes (I even try a ranking this time):
              1) What Is And What Should Never Be
              2) In My Time Of Dying
              3) Hunted
              4) Born Under A Bad Sign
              5) Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things

              Honorable Mention: All Hell Breaks Loose Part II

              I find it funny that although I am a sucker for the relationship between Sam and Dean, four of my favourite episodes are dealing with Sam and Dean being apart (well, or at least not with their real versions). Probably because there is nothing that highlightens their love for each other more than being forced apart.

              To add to my Top 5 Dean moments:
              AHBL II: Dean's monologue at the bed of his dead brother. This is just beyond words, one of Ackles finest performances!
              WIAWSNB: Dean's speech at John's grave. Heartbreaking!

              To add to my Top 5 Sam moments:
              WIAWSNB: Sam telling Dean that he is glad that they are close, even if it meant painful sacrifices for them both.

              To add to my Top 5 Brother moments:
              AHBL II: Sam confronting Dean with his suspicion about the deal and trying to hammer it into Dean that he reciprocates his protectiveness!

                Okay I have been rewatching many s2 eps these last few days so I feel I should update my lists. My top s2 eps have changed a bit:

                Top 5 S2 episodes

                Crossroad Blues
                Nightshifter
                Born Under A Bad Sign
                Heart
                What Is And What Should Never Be

                I honestly cannot do a ranking because even picking 5 was just so hard. Just goes to show what an awesome season season 2 was!

                I have also compiled my top 5 Sam moments although these might change again:

                Top 5 Sam moments

                - Sam rebelling against John in various episodes in season 1: I couldn't choose an ep, there are too many. I just love that Sam does not simply obey John but has a mind of his own and is not afraid to stick up for his views. I'm not saying that Dean is but I was always a bit disturbed by Dean's blind obediance towards John, I could relate to Sam much better in this respect.

                - Bloodlust: Sam's actions, views and behaviour throughout the episode struck a chord with me.

                - CSPWDT: Sam burying John's tags at Mary's grave. I just watched that scene and the emotion of it gets me every time.

                - Nightshifter: Sam kicking the ass of two SWAT guys, so damn cool!

                - Heart: Sam stepping up and assuming responsibility re Madison. I was so proud of him that he did not take the easy way out and let his older brother handle the situation.
