Supernatural - "What's Up, Tiger Mommy?" - 10/10/12

Well. This isn't wasting time is it? Okay jumbled thoughts for now so forgive. I'll have to watch again to pick up more stuff.

Is it just me or was the music really odd. Almost comedic. I didn't like it. It didn't fit the feel of the episode to me.

DEAN HUGGED CAS!!!!!
But Cas didn't hug back so does it count as their first hug?

Crowley red demon eyes finally! Red smoke! Dude. So classy.
"The winchesters, well they have a habit of using people up, and watching them die bloody"
How can you not love him. He's smarter than everyone.

Sorry but
Spoiler:
Jared looked amazing. I can't get over how much I love his hair.
The hammer is awesome! Really glad he didn't give that back. Please tell me they take that with them. We need more cool weapons like that. The demon knife is awesome but old hat.

And Sam instantly tries to comfort Dean when he says people he doesn't need end up dead. Oh Sammy. I really need to know why he didn't look for Dean.

Cas at the end. Wow. That was not good.

ETA: Sam with the trick! If he stopped hunting how did he learn to keep the demon inside by saying it backward? hmmm.....

It's strange and unnatural seeing Lauren Tom as a real live human being after all these years...

Rob I feel like I should understand that but I don't.
Off to bed! There needs to be a bunch of replies so we can discuss when I get to work!

Had to IMDB her, we saw her as Kevin's Mom,
but she's been a voice actor on Futurama, along with many other animated series and movies.

Of course "Moose" can handle Mjolnir!

Is this the first time Crowley has called Dean Squirrel?

And who else thought of Ozzy when the auctioneer said "Mr. Crowley"?

Tom's most famous role is probably Ross's girlfriend Julie on Friends.
(In which she was absolutely reviled by the fans.)


Yeah, I'm afraid the boys screwed up here and now they've got to chase down the tablet and then convince Kevin to do the spell.

Such is the life of the Winchester Brothers but Dean is barely in control here.
All rage and little warmth.
When you factor in Sam's emotional burnout, things are not well in the Impala.

I didn't really notice the music, which probably means that it was weird because I usually specifically notice the musical choices.

Not the music as in songs played during like they do. That was the normal rock soundtrack. I mean more like the score that set the scenes and actions. It was very odd. Apparently I am the only one that noticed but I was thinking it 5 minutes into the episode.

I must be really off because I can't remember a single classic rock song in the ep. I can tell you that I was really concentrating on the mom to see if she was going to make the ep weird.

Yes. Especially right here:
Spoiler:

I wonder if they hairspray it to look that perfectly not perfect or if it just does.

Okay so about Crowley the King of Snark?
"How about plan D for Dumbass" HAHAHA!

Did anyone else look up "Tiger Mom" or was I the only one that didn't get the reference?

I looked it up when I first saw the episode title but I think I forgot now what it means.

When the book came out, it was all over the news. Pretty big controversy. So although I didn't pay much attention, it certainly seeped into my consciousness.

I'm not so sure it seeped into the writer's consciousness, though...she didn't really seem like much of a Tiger Mom type (which, I'd say, is a good thing).

After looking up the book, i vaguely remember hearing something, but I tend to actively avoid pop culture type news so i'm not surprised it didn't make an impression.

I thought the title was a reference to the Woody Allen film "What's Up, Tiger Lily?"

That is the first thing that came to my mind.

It probably made a bigger impression on me because I was so appalled by the concept (which, as I said before, doesn't really fit Kevin's mom much at all).

I suspect the writer was thinking of it as a generic term for an Asian mother, instead of the particular kind of hyper-pushy nervous-breakdown-inducing mother that Amy Chua bragged about being.

When they first walked into the auction, I would've sworn it was Patrick Stewart in one of the establishing shots, but, apparently not.

Heh, I had the same thought. Then, I thought, "No way." Then, I thought that I thought "No way" when I thought "Is that Walton Goggins!?!" on Sons of Anarchy. Then, I thought, "Walton Goggins is no Patrick Stewart."

Then, I thought "Stop thinking and enjoy the show, you moron!"

To which, I thought, "Oh, somebody's a moron because he thinks too much? Who's being a moron now?"

The law that requires he do guest appearance on every show probably keeps him too busy...

I think Mark Pellegrino may be picking up some of his slack lately.

I believe he's the designated alternate.

Lost really hedged their bets. They clearly did not want to fall afoul of the law.

Perhaps Ty Olsson as well.
In the past week, I've seen him on Supernatural, Flashpoint, and Arrow.

The actors playing Kevin and his mom conducted a master class in bad acting in this episode.
