Earning Our Peabody | Extraneous Supernatural Episode 61

Time to make yourself a nice cup of tea, hot chocolate, cocktail… whatever you drink to keep calm, because it’s Part 1 of our women in Supernatural commentary. This episode Taekia and Leah go through the female characters we encounter in Seasons 1-7 of the show and the unfortunately shallow tropes they fall into. We’re earning our critical scout badges on this one, so press play and try not to get too frustrated. And remember: we rant because we love.

We’ve Got 5 or 6 Bones to Pick | Extraneous Supernatural Episode 60

FIRST OFF: This episode has a mission. Should you choose to accept it, you’ll be sending us your thoughts and feelings because we’re tackling the topic of women in Supernatural.

This episode is a bit of a prologue to the topic. An amuse-bouche. A soupçon. A mere taste of what’s in store for the next two episodes. And the taste is often sour, because y’all the women in Supernatural go through it.

Taekia and Leah would also like to note that due to the fact that Supernatural has no non-binary or genderqueer characters, nor trans ones, their language is going to be a bit more binary than they would like. Which sucks. For a lot of reasons.

Can We Fix It: Demon Dean | Extraneous Supernatural Episode 59

In the first episode of their Fix-It series, Leah and Taekia decided to start with an easy one: Demon Dean. The duo take on the literal 3 episodes of Season 10 in which he appears, and write their own versions of how the character could have been better served with just a few small tweaks. Because, be honest, you wanted to keep Black-eyed Jensen a little longer too.

The Angels on Our Shoulders Are All Dicks | Extraneous Supernatural Episode 57

It’s the middle child episode of our “angel” trilogy! Leah and Taekia buckle down to chat about the Angel Bros ™: Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer. Raphael moved across the country and wants nothing to do with the family business, so we respect his wishes.
