Uriel on Supernatural/ Uriel in "Hideaway"

Castiel (Misha Collins) & Uriel (Robert Wisdom) Supernatural


This week's episode of "Supernatural" was full of surprises. One of them being the identity of the serial angel killer: "Uriel". I was a bit surprised but not really shocked about this, maybe because I didn't really like the character of Uriel on Supernatural. Uriel thought he was doing the right thing (they always do) by killing the angels and joining Lucifer to bring the apocalypse on Earth. In his last moments, he shared his doubts about the true agenda of God and wanted to "shake things up" in heaven. I also think that Christopher Heyerdahl,the actor playing the demon Alastair, was amazing in this episode.
Angels falling from grace all over again ? And Dean asked to stand up against the apocalypse ? The last episodes of Supernatural are going to be pretty interesting.



It wasn't the first time that I came across a portrait of the angel Uriel in fiction. He was also in Dean Koontz's book, "Hideaway", about a man who was telepathically connected to a serial killer after an accident that lead him to an 8 min coma. The movie was made about this book, and I hated the movie interpretation with such a passion. The story is a great depiction of Good versus Evil and the thin line that separates them.
I highly recommend this book to all supernatural and thriller fans.

Dollhouse/Angel filming set

Echo, wandering around the "Dollhouse"


Am I the only one feeling a bit curious about the uncanny resemblance between the set of Dollhouse and the set from the tv show Angel ? The offices of "Angel Investigations" and the main hall of the "Dollhouse" look exactly the same. Coincidence, I think not.

Fringe is back with new episodes on FOX.
Starting april 7 with Season 1 Episode 15, Inner Child.

Jessica Lucas on Melrose Place 2.0

The gorgeous Jessica Lucas (Undercover cop on the new 90210, Cloverfield) has been cast on the new Melrose Place remake from the CW. She will play the role of Riley Richmond, a 24 years old wealthy inner-city school teacher.
In addition to the regular cast of the remake, I would really like to see guest appearances from the old cast of Melrose Place. Wouldn't it be nice to see Aliison (Courtney Thorne-Smith ) or Dr Mancini (Thomas Calabro) drop by to check up on the new residents ?

The Amazing Jennifer Garner: Open letter to The Evil Beet


Dear Evil Beet,

Thank you for making my study break a little bit brighter with your open letter to Jennifer Garner this monday. Someone named Wendie from the site wrote a wonderful note on the beautiful Jennifer Garner and how refreshing it is to see how down-to-earth and natural she looks on her every day life, which is different from the image we are used to seeing of hollywood.
Even though the usual numerized form of celebrity gossip is always a guilty pleasure, I wish magazines made articles like this more often.

How I met your mother- 3 min Recap


A 3 minutes recap of seasons 1 and 2 of "How I Met Your Mother"

From CBS.

The Bro Code from Barney Stinson


Everyone's life is governed by an internal code of conduct, an historically spoken tradition passed from one generation to the next. Some call it morality. Others call it religion. But Bros in the know call this holy grail the Bro Code.



"Years ago, I set forth to compile and articulate the unspoken mores that exist between and among Bros the world over. While not intending to write a "Guide To Being a Bro," if men should treat it as such and choose to pass this compendium of knowledge from generation to generation, I have little doubt it would bring a tear to my eye… but not out of it - that would be a violation of..."


ARTICLE 77: "A Bro never cries."


The Bro Code is a living document - manifest in its 83 amendments - and as such is not yet publicly available in an unabridged volume. The original document is housed in a non-disclosed location, two stories beneath sea level in a vacuum-sealed bulletproof chamber. Re-printed here is a sampling of some of her articles. Learn. Live. Enjoy.



ARTICLE 26: "A bro will, in a timely manner, alert his bro to the existence of a girl fight." A Bro must never hesitate before communicating the possibility of fisticuffs between two humans of the female variety [[HENCEFORTH "GIRL FIGHT"]], in an effort to make possible and probable that another Bro or Bros can partake in observation. A timely manner is open to interpretation based on the initial Bro's viewing and processing of the potential feminine conflagration. Said Bro must use any and all methods of media distribution at his disposal, including but not limited to: telecommunications, elbow nudging, fiber optics, the Broney express, and postcards. If an informed Bro is unable to witness the girl fight firsthand, the spotter Bro is responsible for documenting and relating details of the girl fight via pictures, video*, or barring any other reasonable method, interpretive dance and/or pantomime. Tabling Bro obligations to witness a XX chromosomal scuffle is not only condoned, but encouraged, and in some cases, required. Please refer to the Brobligation rubric as elucidated in AMENDMENT 83: "The REALLY hot sister and other hump trumps." * SEE ZaBroder film



ARTICLE 53 "A Bro will, whenever possible, provide his Bro with protection." In the event that one Bro finds himself lacking the necessary prophylactic accoutrements needed to complete the act of coitus in a safe and effective manner, he is in the right to expect his Bro will use all measures within or without his means to provide the aforementioned prophylactic in a timely yet discreet fashion. When a Bro signals his need using previously agreed upon code words and/or body signage, it is understood that his Bro will discontinue all present activity [excepting the act of coitus itself [whereby which Bro vows to finish as quickly as possible]], in order to respond with a panoply of options at Bro-in-need's location. A Bro must patronize the most rapid method of transportation available while endeavoring to assist his Bro. In no instance may a two-wheeled bicycle be used* as this is not only humiliating, but also potentially harmful to the perineum - a zone of tissue perilously adjacent to noted sexual organs. In the event that a state, federal, international, or galactic law is breached due to recklessness, unacceptable levels of speed, and/or the hijacking of an airborne vehicle(s), it is understood that the primary Bro will shoulder any associated legal fees or fines. However, any costs or damages incurred from the use of public transportation are the responsibility of the secondary Bro alone as this is an instance of Quid Pro Bro. Upon arrival at the primary Bro's location, the secondary Bro must exercise complete discretion so as not to disrupt the primary Bro's "flow." It is understood that a Bro will engage in all training necessary to achieve this objective, including, at minimum, a five month Ninjitsu curriculum mastering the twin arts of stealth and secrecy.** Once the primary Bro has been supplied with the necessary prophylactic(s), the Brocedure is deemed complete upon exchange of the traditional, though in this case silent, "high five." Tacit in this unspoken ritual is the understanding that said episode will never be spoken of again, unless it's part of an awesome story. * Unless a bicycle is the ONLY form of transportation, as in some Cambodian villages ** SEE APPENDIX E: "List of approved ninja training facilities and dojos."



ARTICLE 89 "A Bro may never pursue the mom of another Bro." Be it here resolved that at no point is it permissible for one Bro to engage in carnal delicacies with another Bro's mother. It is, however, allowed and encouraged for one Bro to graphically suggest to a Bro the athletic feats, animalia, and/or machinery utilized during a fictional encounter with his mom. [[NOTA BENE: It is customary for a Bro to avoid such Brocularity if his Bro's mom is a 9 or better, for fear of Oedipal inducement.]] Should a Bro discover his Bro is in fact adopted, he is free to pursue his Bro's adoptive mother, but only after first corroborating non-biological parentage through notarized birth certificates, hospital records, or comparative dioxyribonucleic acid gel electrophoresis, whichever is easiest. Since the adopted Bro cannot legitimately claim to have shared a canal with his Bro, ARTICLE 89 expressly prohibits the adopted Bro from invoking the Sloppy Second clause in any related filings with the International Court of Bros. Though the mom of a Bro is always off limits, the step-mom of a Bro is allowed if she initiates it and/or is wearing at least one article of leopard print clothing. If she looks good in it.

"At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us to behave in the world. You teach us
not tofight with others
to work things out,
to respect others,
to clean up our mess,
not to hurt other creatures
to share - not be greedy
Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do?"
