will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

Since all interest in the show here seems to have died at the end of season five I dare post this about the recently aired first episode of season seven.

I liked Deaths reappearance however he doesn't seem to be all that powerful given that he can be bound by humans.
This God in Supernatural sounds more like a being that screwed with the natural order within the universe rather then the creator of the universe.
And here's a thought, what if the Apocalypse is still ongoing? Castiel may have shot himself in the foot killing so many Angels.

'Hello Cruel World'
HIGHLIGHT to view:

Through the water mains Leviathans are loosed on Bobby's hometown of Sioux Falls taking over various people like demons and angels only they can shape shift them as one who took a little girl later takes a doctors form. While vulnerable they appear to be able to regenerate their forms. They aren't invulnerable but they appear indestructible as one host is crushed but the pool of blood or Leviathan goop is shown receding, maybe returning to it's host.
Unless this is a two or three parter, it looks like the show has taken a new format and with the removal of Bobby and Castiel I suspect this Sheriff Jodie Mills will become a supporting character.

One thing bugs me about Castiel, his human host Jimmy Novak's family was featured in the season 4 episode 'The Rapture' and this host has taken a pummeling these past few seasons, so is he dead or what? He's been blown up by Angels, usually the hosts die when the angels do so is Jimmy dead too? They never returned to this.

Yes Jimmy is dead, as far as the rest of the team knows... but it's a tv show, they'll have a means to bring him back if they need to... and we don't know where bobby is...

Episode 3HIGHLIGHT to view:

Jewel Stait from Firefly and Stargate Atlantis is the monster of the week, she's similar to the one from season fours Metamorphosis only she kills again to save her child from a sickness. She had a brief encounter with fifteen year old Sam who killed her mother and let her go (due to his teen hormones) and while Sam spares her this time, Dean goes to see her behind Sams back and kills her, I think it is foolish he spared the kid given his history with other similar creatures.
Last week ended on a cliffhanger with Bobby's yard burned down and the boys badly injured and headed to the very hospital they fought Leviathans in, this episode begins with Bobby just popping up alive, pulling them out, taking them to one of Rufus place and neither seems to question how or why which is very disappointing given the enemies they face capable of possessing them.
While I am all for standalone episodes I'm not sure this is working they shouldn't throw the Leviathans in every episode for the sake of it, aside from a amusing cheesy ending they do nothing in this one.
And where's the Angels and Demons? surely they'd want to assess the threat of the Leviathans at this early stage.

Episode Four:
Another Pagan only one who can summon ghosts turns up, it is the ancient Egyptian god Osiris who is there to pass judgement on Dean who is still fretting Sam will find out about him killing his girlfriend monster. He summons Jo to tell Dean he carries a lot of crap which ties in nicely to the season four episode where the boys dealt with ghosts of Megs host, Agent Henrickson and the guy who took hostages at the bank in season 2. With god gone, the angels and demons depleted perhaps the Pagans will play a bigger role in the series.
Episode Five
James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter turns up as a bickering couple set for divorce due to cheating, the twist is that they are witches. I didn't really realise it was them until I read wikipedia. The episode was terrible especially the ending, the brothers try to stop them but take a pounding while getting the two to reconcile then they are allowed to leave only to run into a Leviathan though James Marsters character paralyses it, that's the main 'big bad' of the season brought down by a witch.

Episode Six
I am not seeing anything about this anywhere, I guess it was a bit too dark for some.
It begins with the Winchesters going into a bank Dean hitting on a teller like he would then the brothers seal the place, force everyone into a vault and then open fire on them.
The episode was about the Leviathans posing as Dean and Sam (thanks to hair samples they got from a motel) and they to bring the two down so they go on a killing spree working their way from where the brothers began in season one, the real Winchesters go off the grid to hunt the two down but the show ends revealing the Leviathans have seized high places in the FBI and possibly other organisations, the Leviathan leader there is visited by Crowly who has a peace offering but he's told to shove off.

Did anyone else watch Deaths Door?
It was all about Bobby, who took a bullet to the head from the chief Leviathan in the last episode, now he's at Deaths door and flatlines at the end of the episode.
The thing is, the episode could have served as the characters swansong, I honestly can't think of a better send off and the cliffhanger sort of brings it down.

The producers have said that this season's arc is about taking away everything the boys have. They've lost Cas, they've lost the Impala, they've lost their usual aliases, they've lost Bobby's library, and now they've lost Bobby himself.

They haven't quite lost each other yet. I'm guesing that's next. . .

I don't really care for this Leviathan story arc of Supernatural, I think they should just kill off the leader at the end of this season and have the Leviathans become small time monsters like Vampires and demons, then have season 8 just be standalones featuring the odd changeling, Djinn and ghost to come full circle.

This season is notable for the absence of the Angels who would surely be wanting to do something about the Leviathans, the demons too are gone, they had Crowly turn up a quarter of the way in then tell the boys he'd give them a wide berth to fight the Leviathans. What's stupid is the Leviathans seem powerless with no access to heaven and hell and have a weakness they could easily exploit.

The next episode apparently has two Archangels fighting over a new prophet, it's not a stretch to figure out who since there were only four and two left!

I got into this show thanks to a friend loaning me the first season on DVD about a year and a half ago. Since then I've slowly been buying the seasons on DVD, and just last week managed to catch up fully with the last episode of season 7. I have to say I -LOVE- this show.

Season 6 I'll admit took me a while to get into, it wasn't until HIGHLIGHT to view:
Sam got his soul back that it 'felt' like Supernatural again.

For Season 7, I've REALLY been enjoying it. I like the Leviathans, as you can't really 'kill' them. Just slow them down.

Though it does bring up a question that's been bugging me all season...

Where is the Colt, and do we KNOW it won't kill a Leviathan!?

Edited by videomaster21XX, 06 May 2012 - 08:16 PM.

It's a secret to everybody

That's a very good question, in season 5 Lucifer was shot and revived, he said the colt can't kill five things, presumably three were archangels, god and death though the last two may be the same species and Lucifer may not be familiar with Leviathans.

I liked the episode and the end where the Leviathan took out the angels casually was exactly what they need to be serious villains.

Are you referring to the leviathan killing the angels? Im pretty sure that was a something the leviathan did not the angels anatomy. Angels bleed red blood as witnessed when Cazz used his own blood to banish himself and other angels a while back.
