Despite all the odds, Supernatural had a great season 6 and is on a tear in season 7. Entil2001: ” It renders the whole apocalypse arc of the fifth season a mere prelude, which is certainly one way to address the fact that the producers didn’t have the budget to make that work.” Hathor Legacy liked it too, but the tally of non-white/non-male characters continues to be pretty grim.

At The Toast, Mo Moulton watches Downton Abbey and discusses its portrayal of Neville Chamberlain. “Here, then, is Neville Chamberlain in 1925. He is fulfilling the expectations set by an extraordinary political family. His father, Joseph Chamberlain, ran a screw factory in Birmingham, where he became passionate about urban improvement as a method for bettering the lives of his workers. As Liberal mayor of Birmingham, he was an early, passionate proponent of what became known as “gas and water socialism”: he wanted to put those services within reach of every resident by putting them under the management of local government. So far, it’s hard to imagine the Earl of Grantham having much in common with this energetic, egalitarian entrepreneur.”
