If Maester Aemon is the blood of the dragon...did his body burn?

Since S10 was promoted as the "Year of the Deanmon" by all rights "Soul Survivor" should have been the finale. The Demon Dean arc would have been a showcase for all the main characters involved and there would have been no need to introduce mediocre characters like Claire and Rowena. Once again SPN shot itself in the foot by making promises it didn't intend to keep and by filling S10 with that stupid angel arc and idiotic filler episodes. The execution of the MarkedDean storyline was inconsistent and downright clumsy. The finale only illustrates the main problem with SPN: the writing. Jensen is a fantastic actor, he can spin gold from the garbage the writers give him, yet I am never convinced when he talks about the evil he's supposedly done because the show never allowed us to see him as truly dark. I don't count bad karaoke, romancing willing human women and killing demons in self-defense as evil. Demon Dean was deliberately watered down so he wouldn't scare the more vocal fangirls who didn't want to see Dean evil in the first place. That would have been way out of their comfort zone, yet I bet these same fangirls had absolutely no problem with Soulless Sam. Soulless hung around for more than 3 episodes. Those fans always complain online, and unfortunately, the show always listens to them. I don't have high hopes for S11. I can see the Darkness possessing humans next, so that story will be just a tired rehash of the Leviathan arc, which wasn't all that great in the first place. SPN has a notoriously cheap special effects budget. I just don't see the Darkness rampaging all over the countryside in that form, like a cheap Godzilla knockoff. And I was hoping Rowena would die. She's a poor man's version of Endora, from Bewitched.

Great RT and great finale. The finale rounded up the season in an awesome way. What i would have loved to know was what the deal was with Juliette's continued silence and look of remorse/second thoughts. At first when she confronted Nick I thought she was really remorseful thats why she came back, that she might have had a chance to survive the season but then she turned right round and agressively confronted Nick just to kick some butt. I can't say I will miss her. Most of the time i barely tolerated at most and only liked her at some instances her when i thought i had no choice but to accept her as a permanent castmember and love interest for Nick but now that i've seen the route taken with her, i'll say good riddance

Battle Creek Series Finale Review: Sympathy for the Devil

lousy CBS they need to keep this show going

I agree. This show got better each time. CBS seems quick to cancel shows that just need some time. So sad.

Battle Creek Series Finale Review: Sympathy for the Devil

I will miss this show. It needed a couple of episodes to establish itself. CBS doomed it to failure with almost no support and a crappy time slot pitted against the last season of Mad Men. Any chance the show will be picked up by another network?

I really hate to see this show not last. The Sunday night graveyard of 10 pm ET pre-ordained its demise. I wish CBS or a cable network or even Netflix et al had the balls to continue the series. Shame that when a slightly quirky show with interesting and flawed but very human characters could not find an audience. Says more about the pathetic state of affairs than anything. Can one imagine how Lucy or DVD or MTM would fare today?

I can't believe they would keep that crap fest CSI Cyber and cancel this very smart and creative show.

Z Nation Review: Zombabies of the Apocalypse

Watched this last night with my husband and didn't have any idea what to expect. It was a lot of fun! I happen to be a very big fan of the WD and I believe it's possible to like two shows without bashing one or comparing constantly!. That being said I don't think it has the acting quality you see on TWD but it's a lot more action. So in my opinion it's not as good as TWD but it is good fun! We will be watching it from now on!

I'm not quite sure Dean needs to apologize for the things he said to Sam at the bar, Mark or no Mark, given that the whole point of his speech (on the writers' part) was to finally make them even for Sam saying he wouldn't go as far to rescue Dean as Dean would to rescue him. Likewise, the fact that Dean believed that Sam would go to any lengths to save him (and thus must be killed) was, in a typically Winchester way, Dean's way of expressing that he finally believes he means as much to Sam as Sam means to him (something I think Dean has doubted since the days of RoboSam). In a dysfunctional sort of way, it was very touching, and apologizing would spoil it.
I'm just wondering, now that Marie's prediction that Dean would become a 'spaceman' almost came true, does this mean that Marie is actually a Prophet? And will Dean (temporarily) become a woman next season?
