5.0 out of 5 stars Leviathan Sam and Dean, July 30, 2012
Sam and Dean are framed by Leviathans for several crimes and end up wanted by the FBI while Bobby attempts to figure out how to kill Leviathans. The whole soapy water business was a bit lame, but otherwise a solid episode. Sam finally finds out about Amy's death at Dean's hands, and as usual walks away from Dean. Leviathan boss Dick Roman meets with the King of Hell, Crowley, and rejects his offer for a partnership. Crowley quickly realizes that the Leviathan's are not opposed to eliminating all demons in addition to the humans.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun but..., July 30, 2012
I absolutely love Supernatural, and have watched since the beginning. I loved the characters of Donald and Maggie Stark and this felt like an old time Supernatural episode with lots of lighthearted humor. But like a previous reviewer remarked, it makes absolutely no sense that the brothers would let two immortal witches go who have both killed several people in just this episode alone but Dean kills Amy who saved Sam's life?? That's the only reason I gave this four stars - it's like the writers can't make up their minds!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite episodes!, July 30, 2012
A case leads Sam and Dean to small town where the god Osiris is placing people on trial and a guilty sentence means death. Osiris picks his victims based on any guilt they feel and Dean quickly becomes his next choice. Sam persuades Osiris to allow him to act as Dean's lawyer. As always Jensen Ackles does a great job in these types of episodes and you feel the guilt and sadness pouring out of him. Jo Harvelle is called to the witness stand, and after somehow avoiding confessing to the death of Amy in the last episode, Dean is found guilty and it is up to Sam to save him before Jo's ghost gets to him.

A great and emotionally charged episode!

5.0 out of 5 stars Never expected THAT, July 29, 2012
While Dean is healing from injuries suffered in the last episode Sam goes out on his own to investigate a case that is familiar to him. We are introduced to Amy, and get to see how she met Sam when they were both young. I thought that the flashbacks were the best part of this episode as it gives us a glimpse of Sam's life while Dean and his father are off hunting.

First, Dean's actions took me completely by surprise! I understand why he did what he did, but certainly they have let worse monsters/baddies live - the warlock and witch for example who killed a few people got live because he saved their lives. Amy saved Sam's life and still Dean kills her and keeps it from Sam. It didn't seem in keeping with Dean's character or what the brothers have done in the past.

All of that aside, I agree that some of the episodes have little to nothing to do with each other. In previous seasons there was always an episode or two where the brothers go off on several hunting trips that don't relate to the mains story arc but this is all beginning to feel a little disjointed... like a puzzle where someone is forcing the pieces together.

It gets 5 stars, however, because it was a great performance by Dean and Sam, and the flashbacks were wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of Leviathans, July 29, 2012
Sheriff Jody Mills alerts Bobby that something is not right at a local hospital which leads Bobby and the brothers to investigate. After leaving Castiels' body the Leviathans take over other people, most notably a doctor in the same hospital as Sheriff Mills. They hint at long term plans and it appears that the Leviathans are here to stay. The brother's lose a battle against a Leviathans after finding Bobby's house burnt down, and we find out that so far nothing the boys have tried successfully kills the Leviathans. They are both injured at taken to the hospital where the Leviathans have created a base, and Sam continues to struggle with visions of Lucifer.

I thought that this was a suspenseful episode despite not liking the animated Leviathans. They remind me of typical TV monsters, slimy with a lots of teeth and nothing unique about them. We are also left to wonder if Bobby made it out alive. I'm actually beginning to miss the cursed objects, ghosts, and demons that the boys normally hunt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Castiel the Baddie, July 29, 2012
It was interesting to see Castiel in the role of main antagonist. He uses his newfound power to right wrongs as he sees fit. Dean, Sam and Bobby plot to figure out a way to stop Castiel and turn to Crowley. They obtain a way to summon Death whom they hope will stop Castiel. Their plans go awry as always but not before Death reveals the existence of Leviathans who previously occupied Purgatory. The ending was not what I expected for a first episode and I couldn't wait to see Episode Two to find out about Castiel's fate as the Leviathans overpowered him. Sam is also struggling because he can now see Lucifer everywhere due to the wall in his head crumbling.

I suppose my biggest question - and one that never gets answered - is why exactly Dean is ready to kill Castiel. While he did betray the brothers, they don't attempt to 'fix him' as Dean did with Sam who committed some of the same crimes as Castiel while drinking demon blood or when he was soulless Sam. The episode did a great job setting up the rest of the season even though I missed Castiel's many funny lines.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, July 22, 2012
The Thor movie was not memorable as Iron Man but enjoyable nonetheless. The movie rolled on at a much slower pace and did seem like it was divided into too many parts and transitions between them were not very smooth. Plot was ok but I did enjoy the fight scenes when they existed. I liked Natalie Portman and her scientist buddies. The main battle was very disappointing, but I did enjoy the little glimpse of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D crew.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, July 22, 2012
I have read The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas and have seen many of the movie versions. This is by far one of the worst movies based on Dumas' work right next to The Musketeer. While Matthew Macfadyen did a good job of being Athos and Luke Evans was ok as Aramis, there was so much of the characterizations necessary to create Athos, Aramis, Porthos and D'Artagnan which was missing. Where was the womanizing Aramis (except in the opening scene)? The worst casting by far was D'Artagnan. From the messed up hair, to poor acting Logan Lerman could not even attempt to pull off the arrogant Gascon. And Milla Jovovich as M'Lady de Winter and Orlando Bloom as Buckingham were horrid!

But despite the miscasting I still gave the movie a try only to watch it revolve around flying ships... No plot, horrible casting, and bad acting makes me wonder why this even made it onto a movie screen in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite perfume, July 22, 2012
I absolutely adore Lola by Marc Jacobs. The scent is light and flowery but not sweet. I receive a lot of compliments even towards the end of the day so it has some lasting power. The bottle is very pretty, and looks nice on a side table. Would recommend this for someone who enjoys flowery scents that are light and airy but not sickly sweet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as sweet, July 22, 2012
I do enjoy this product but it is not as sweet as I would prefer. It does not have to be Nutella sweet but I can almost feel saltiness which I don't like. The texture is also quite grainy. I have not tried the hazelnut product yet but I will before deciding if this is for me.
