Laura Prudom: 'Supernatural': Sam & Dean Solve Their Problems The Old Fashioned Way; With Punching
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 8, Episode 6 of The CW's "Supernatural," entitled "Southern Comfort." No one does honesty like the Winchester brothers. Whereas most of us would try to be up-front about our resentment for our family members in a constructive and healthy way, or repress said feelings until we keeled over from a stress-induced heart attack, Sam and Dean subscribe to the "Supernatural" method of conflict resolution -- namely, ignoring their emotions until a haunted penny, siren saliva or truth spell forces them to vocalize their anger in the most violent way possible. Ah, progress. While it's a little depressing that it still takes a paranormal intervention for Sam and Dean to have an honest conversation with each other, both brothers said things that desperately needed to be said in "Southern Comfort." Dean was still (understandably) reeling from Sam's decision not to look for him in Purgatory, while Sam was feeling (understandably) ...

Laura Prudom: 'Supernatural' Recap: Felicia Day Gets Her Geek On
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 7, Episode 20 of The CW's "Supernatural," entitled "The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo." It's "Supernatural" custom to follow emotionally heavy episodes with lighter installments, but in the right hands, even an episode laden with humor can propel the mythology forward. Such was the case with the witty, quippy "Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo," confidently scripted by Robbie Thompson. Thompson has fast distinguished himself as the MVP of Season 7's writing staff -- though he's a newcomer this year, he's already written two of the strongest episodes of the season: "Slash Fiction" and the phenomenal time-travel story "Time After Time." Ably assisted by first-time director John MacCarthy (who has served as First Assistant Director on 15 episodes of the show since Season 2), Thompson's script was full of energy, balancing humor and pathos in a believable fashion, and nailing the Winchester brothers' inimi ...

10 Most Disgusting Restaurants In Film
Screen Junkies - almost 5 years
The Heart Attack Grill has lived up to its name once again. For the second time in two months, a patron has collapsed while eating the Las Vegas restaurant’s fat-filled foods. It’s a pretty novel idea. The restaurant cooks in excessive amounts of lard and cream, and customers looking to have a brush with death order up a grease-soaked meal. I hope at the very least they are given a free t-shirt. In honor of The Heart Attack Grill’s steady killing off of its clientele, we decided to take a look at the most disgusting restaurants in movies. And, no, Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector did not make the list. We do have some standards. Road Trip They say that you should never ever send your food back with a complaint while dining out. Road Trip affirms this rule of thumb. After taking issue with the powdered sugar on his french toast, DJ Qualls receives that special touch that only Horatio Sanz and his ballsack can provide. Spaceballs When stopping for a quick bite while cr ...
