  • This episode kept me glued to the screen and at the edge of my seat.

    10
    I loved all the mystery surrounding the murders, following the clues and seeing how all the pieces fit together. I was very much surprised a few times, like when we found out it was Amazons, and when Dean`s one night love affair was tied in, and when the daughter wanted to kill him, and when the detective was revealed to be one of the Amazons.



    When an episode of TV transports me to a fictional world, and makes me care for the characters like they are real people, and keeps me captivated for a whole hour, and gives me an entertaining escape from the problems of real life, and makes me happy for a while, and nothing bothers me to break the spell, i give it a 10.



    I am loving Season 7, it`s my second most favourite after season 2, and i have seen many tv critics praise season 7 too. Carina MacKenzie (LA Times and Zap2it) said just last month: "This is my favorite season of Supernatural since Season 2. The Gamble/Kripke/Singer team is firing on all cylinders if you ask me."



    I have always loved the monster of the week episodes the most. I love going into it without any idea of what they are up against, following the research and clues to figure out what it is, and then discovering a whole new creature. Like in this episode, i had no idea it would be Amazons, and that is a big part of the fun for me. I liked following the symbol and patterns of the murders, and finding out more about the Amazons, the real life mythology about them being the daughters of war god Ares and the nymph Harmonia, and adding their own original Supernatural lore as well, like the tradition that the daughters kill the fathers. This is what i love the most.



    I also love season 7 because the brothers are close again. I very much enjoy scenes like the one at the end of this episode, where Sam is showing concern for Dean`s state of mind and says "Just don`t get killed." To me these brotherly moments are the heart and soul of the show, and i was very tired of the brothers fighting in seasons 4 and 5 (and part of 6 when Sam wasn`t Sam.) So i am just loving seeing these brotherly scenes again, and i am so happy we got a season 7 to enjoy them in!moreless
  • Surprisingly well done

    8.0
    At first when I saw previews for this episode I was saying how silly it seemed, but after watching, I'm quite impressed with how well it was done. Here's the overview.



    Dean and Sam, both still not over what happened to Bobby, neither am I by the way but moving on, investigate a case where men are killed by being thrown against walls and then having both hands and feet cut off with a symbol carved into their chests. WHile working on the case, Dean goes to a bar where he meets a woman. THey engage in you know what and out pops a baby not even a day later. THree days pass and that baby has grown to a teenager. Come to find out, amazons are killing these men and as you can see, Dean is next on the list as well as Sam who is caught learning too much on the investigation. You see, these Amazons have others like them working in different fields, and one involves detective work. BOth Sam and Dean must fight to stay alive as they try to cope with the death of their father figure Bobby Singer.



    Pretty bloody episode for a show with such a corny title, but its appropriate since they slice limbs off men. THe title is a reference to that girl group that existed many years ago, so you get the humor. THat's all.moreless
  • probabaly worst episode yet

    3.0
    I love this show, and have since a mate loaned me hiseason 1-3 dvd's, and sure there have been the odd flat episodes here or there, but this one.....holy crap, worst episode...EVER!

    It just did not cut it. The ending was rushed and it was over before you knew it, having put up with a boring mid section that really went nowehere.

    Dont get me wrong, I liked the story line, it had good potential, but it just didngt "get there" for me. I hope there are no more flop episodes like this.moreless
  • There was much awesome in this episode!

    10
    My List of Awesome for this week:



    -Hello Man-Who-Is-About-To-Die! And die very brutally at that. (And apparently it was even more brutal before they reined it in to satisfy Broadcast Standards.) This intro was awesomely well done. When the frantic close-ups finally give way to the still wide shot and I saw exactly what had been done to poor Man-Who-Is-About-To-Die I was all O_O! Awesome job by first-time director Jerry Wanek, who has been production designer and co-producer on Supernatural since the start.



    -LOVE SCENE!!!!!!!!!! (The all-caps and multi-exclamation-marks are justified by the fact love scenes are rare and special occasions on Supernatural. And this was an awesome love scene besides.)



    -And the love scene was all the more awesome that it rocked out to You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC. That was beyond perfect!



    -And that love scene was even more awesome that it was brilliantly intercut with Man-Who-Is-About-To-Die 2.0 getting sliced in a weird and bloody parody of a love scene.



    -Tonight Baby's understudy is a Buick Skylark. It's no Baby, but it is a Buick Skylark.



    -Dean: "I have been eating at the buffet of strange all afternoon."



    -AMAZONS! How cool is that?



    -I hope the horde of Amazons who got away come back for round two. That's how cool that was.



    -Annoying professor is very annoying. I think he was conceived to make us miss Bobby all the more. It was very effective.



    -Of course Bobby is haunting his battered antique flask! It makes perfect sense: this way he can stay pickled in booze even in the afterlife and he gets to ride around in Dean's pocket following them on all their adventures so he can shove some pertinent paper at them when the idjits can't see it for themselves. Bobby is so brilliant.



    -Dean's daughter was good casting, she looked like his daughter. And also like a young Amazon. (Which, as we have already established, is way cool.) Trivia alert: the same actress played Missy Bender is season 1. She was pretty badass back then too!



    -Dean: "You're just as screwed up as I am. You're just...bigger." That line made me laugh for a while. Sam: "What?!?" I just love Sam's expression here, it's like every single one of his facial muscles is going WTF?!?



    -Awesome detail: when Dean says "If we live that long" the rumble of the car's engine suddenly gets faster and louder as Sam steps on the gas in angry reaction.



    -Sam, why are you fighting with your brother? You just shot his daughter (okay, his crazy man-killing monster daughter, but his daughter all the same.) You should be buying him pie or something (okay, admittedly you suck at buying him pie, but you could at least try to buy him pie.)



    -Sam: "It almost got you killed. I don't care how you deal, I really really don't. Just don't get killed." Oh, I see where you coming from. Sam's right, Dean, don't you dare get yourself killed!



    I really loved this episode. I'm so glad we get a new one again next week!

  • The Slice Girls

    9.0
    The Slice Girls was a great and very entertaining episode of Supernatural and I really enjoyed watching this episode because it had a great story, interesting details, and more hint's that Bobby is around. I thought the story was extremely well thought out and done perfectly in Supernatural Fashion, everything from the symbol and ceremony to Dean's indiscretion and Bobby's flask. There were some good action scenes, character development, and hope that we may see Bobby in some way again. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!moreless
