...or THE GREATEST episode?

The fandom hysteria over "The End" goes on, as [livejournal.com profile] ariadnes_string pointed out that that one episode now has it's own LJ comm. I've never been part of a TV fandom before but I think it must be pretty rare for one episode to inspire this much excitement. Me, I practically feel like I've fallen into a whole new fandom. It's so exciting. I even dreamt about it last night, some awful angsty thing where Dean was hurt and Castiel was running around some bombed-out city trying to get help for him and Stephen Williams (not playing Rufus) was in it and Castiel was chasing him down this concrete staircase, the sort that all office buildings have, because Stephen Williams knew where there was help but SW turns around and says, "We're being watched," in other words "Back off," and it was SO GREAT.

This segued way into a vivid dream in which Sam and Dean were guest characters on The Simpsons. I mean they were animated. Simpsonized Dean? Still hot.

In other news of great things, last night's episode of Mad Men was one of the most devastating things I've ever seen on television. Jon Hamm deserves whatever awards they can possibly pile on him.

In still more news, I finally finished Twilight and if I feel ambitious I'll do a longer post about that later. Suffice to say I'm mystified by its success and at the same time, strangely unsurprised.

FINALLY, [livejournal.com profile] baylorsr has gone ahead and written a much-needed SPN/Dark Angel crossover, Prodigal. There is simply not enough of this sort of thing, which I blame on the sad truth that Dark Angel kinda sucked. Okay, it really sucked. But damnit, Jensen Ackles was 23 years old and lithe and baby-faced and frequently shirtless so really...what's not to love? Kudos to [livejournal.com profile] baylorsr for stepping up to the plate.

Okay so it's 11:30 at night and I'm sitting here watching the "Pollo Loco" episode of Dark Angel Season One, which of course, was Jensen Ackles' first foray into primetime gorgeousness.

I've commented about this episode at great length elsewhere but let's just talk about Jensen. I'd say he's about as good-looking right now as he's ever going to be, in fact I'd say he's at that perfect age right between youth and maturity where some people are fortunate enough to move beyond being merely attractive and actually achieve real beauty.

But damn...at his Dark Angel age he was so, so pretty. He was not only pretty he was so boyish and so slender, he was almost...delicate. Which is certainly not a word I'd use to describe him now and I love the way he looks now but wow. He was such a doll at that age, just a rosy porcelain doll and it was so fleeting -- by Season Two of Dark Angel he was still crazy-gorgeous but he was a year older and had already shed some of that delicate prettiness. By the time he was on Smallville it was mostly gone, though even now you can still catch tiny little glimpses of it. But if you really want to see that bloom on the rose, "Pollo Loco" is the place to go.

Season One is usually available used on Amazon for very little cash and if you're into Jensen Ackles at all, I highly, highly recommend snagging a copy, just for this episode. I don't think it's available anywhere for download.
