I’m excited for Supernatural’s return if only because Mark Sheppard as Crowley is full cast this year, along with Misha Collins as Castiel. Also, the likely reversal of Dean and Sam in the Heaven-Hell alliance paradigm they usually have going on. If you’re avoiding season nine spoilers, don’t watch the season ten trailer below.

XKCD What If
The science/ geek comic’s writer, Randall Munroe, has wrote a book answering science questions, such as ‘How much Force power can Yoda output.’ The blog itself is worth a read, and presumably the book. To promote the book, Munroe and Hank Green (Vlogbrothers/Sci Show) have a discussion about science, including how a person could potentially survive a velocoraptor attack in a ball pit.
Last Week in Television
Doctor Who – this was an experimental piece questioning whether fears could possibly be all in the mind, and furthermore is fear really a bad thing? And because there is time travel, they get to weave reality and imagination in a way that intrigued me. The reactions to the episode seem to be polarizing, but I thought it a great episode.
Haven – This episode has delivered on the same, kind of goofy, storytelling it’s been running with since the beginning. If you like Haven and are up to date it’s worth the time to watch it. The acting is decent, the story doesn’t seem to have too many gaping holes (though a little rushed) and I’m honestly curious in what’s going on. If you’re not completely up to date, you’re likely to be more confused than entertained, I think they’ve given up on getting new audience members in.
Next Week in Television
Doctor Who – this is really it (other than Haven, and Z Nation which I haven’t seen yet). But the Doctor and Clara are robbing a bank, in an episode called Time Heist. If it’s going the way the series has so far, it will be a deconstruction of the heist story.
