“Supernatural” finally gets a fan film – with one major twist.

Joining the ranks of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, the CW’s fantasy/horror series Supernatural now has its own fan film. Written by award-winning fantasy author Naomi Novik (of the Temeraire series) and directed by fanvidder Counteragent, The Other Side runs like a typical Supernatural episode—but with one important twist.

Slotting into the show somewhere around season 4, “The Other Side features a humanoid “dragon” who transforms the two main characters, Sam and Dean Winchester, into women. This handily provides the film with a believably Supernatural-esque problem to solve (seriously, for the Winchester brothers, this situation is barely weird at all), as well as avoiding the difficulty of tracking down a male fan actor who resembles the luminously beautiful Jensen Ackles.

Considering the show’s love of cheesy sci-fi storylines—not to mention the comedy potential of the hyper-masculine Dean Winchester having to walk a mile in women’s shoes—it’s surprising that Supernatural hasn’t yet featured a real episode like this. Still, The Other Side is pretty convincing. Opening with a typical “The Road So Far” sequence and a short scene with the “real” Sam and Dean, this fan film seems authentic enough that aside from some unavoidable budget issues, it could easily be a lost episode from the show… [READ MORE]

47 Days of Alias - Favorite Alias - (Sydney Bristow)

Sydney is the master of disguise as we saw right from the beginning, and while I thought that I should post Sydney’s first big Alias, the one that got her going again after Danny’s death, being Amy Tippin.  I decided that I wanted to go for some of the the more fun Alias’s tonight.  (I’m in that kind of mood tonight.)  But I still couldn’t just choose one, and honestly if I had more time I would post more, but alas I am going to only do two. 

The first is from season two, episode 7, Counteragent. Sydney as a Geisha and as far as she knew killing Sloane was a great Alias.  For Sloane to see her and talk with her, knowing her so well and to not recognize her is amazing.  Plus add to it the fact that she was willing to work with Sark to save Vaughn has it’s soft spot with me.

The second also from season two, episode 21, Second Double. You can see how much Sydney hates having to go and play this part as as a Dominatrix; she bits down on some ice after having a shot of liquor, but seeing Vaughn trying to control his laughter (and how much he is turned on) is fun to watch.  Then to see Sydney and Vaughn work together to torture this man into giving them what they need simply by taking a few pictures is classic. 

But honestly lets face it, the best Alias is always going to be whatever Sydney turns herself into.

No seriously, you should try Dark Angel. It is both wonderful and horrible. Wonderful because the ladies are AWESOME, and the world building is cool, and BIKES!, and S2 has Jensen Ackles being sexier than the law should allow. And Max/Alec is now one of my favorite FAVORITE ships b/c she teaches him how to be human. But the writing is TERRIBLE. And Logan is TERRIBLE. But. Still recommend.

Dark Angel is terrible, but it had its heart in the right place; with genre TV, which so often doesn’t, that counts for a lot. Also, I don’t think any genre show since has beaten it in the cast diversity front. Notably, Original Cindy was the first queer PoC I personally saw on a genre show, and she’s fucking awesome. On the other hand, worst will-they-or-won’t-they main character romance everrrrr.

Snick, DA actually has a lot to like, but you have to have the right expectations and kind of pick and choose the eps, IMO… Jensen’s character(s) are worth watching but my favorites were actually the MC’s best friend and the Dog Man.

Duly noted! I was amused that I got so many vehement responses to that Jensen gifset. But honestly, if he’s going to look like that, then I have to catch at least an episode or two sometime. :D

“I’m dangerous,” Steve said softly, because he couldn’t say, I’m terrified. He couldn’t say, It’s killing me.
