Now tell me she is not an AMAZING Woman.
When people say they “Hate her” because of her voice, I just want to punch them straight in their faces.
This is Fran Drescher, and she is one HELL of a strong woman.
See? Now this is a prank. Something silly and good intentioned and actually funny. Not groping poor, unsuspecting girls.
that sign is so accurate right now it’s scary
MATT LeBLANC: There’s only five people in the world who know exactly what being on Friends was like, other than me. There’s five of them. David, Matthew, Lisa, Courteney, and Jen. That’s it. Marta and David were close, but when they left the stage, no one knew what they did. We could never leave the stage, metaphorically speaking. Still can’t. Still on that stage. That will follow us around forever.
More important than anything else is the look on people’s faces when you cross paths with them in the street, or in the store, or in the grocery line. You can always tell that you were—maybe still are, maybe always will be—a part of their family. Movies have this thing where it’s an event. You get dressed up, you go to dinner, and you go to the movies. You’re outside of your element. But with television, people are watching you in bed, at their kitchen table eating. You’re in their house.
I did not want it to end.
a more truthful statement has never been uttered

Can someone tell me which movie the sassy and flamboyant weeping Lucifer is from?
fun fact: Pig ‘n a poke isn’t just a breakfast item, it’s a double euphemism that describes the plot of this episode
Pig ‘n a poke is slang for getting a bad deal, which is what Dean got all the Tuesdays he was in Mystery Spot. Back in the olden days people would go to market and buy a suckling pig to raise. The shop owner would put the piglet into a bag, or poke, for them to carry home. But if the customer wasn’t paying attention the shop owner might cheat them by putting a cat in the poke instead. The customer would go home, open the poke to retrieve their pig but a cat would run out of the bag. That’s why let the cat out of the bag is slang for revealing a secret
When Gabriel ate his pancakes with strawberry syrup instead of his usual maple he let the cat out of the bag. And because Sam was being vigilant and noticed this he didn’t get stuck with another pig ‘n a poke Tuesday
the more you know holy fuck
This is one show I’m okay with people analyzing like this because OMG
Supernatural is a great show to analyze because we know that writers like Jeremy Carver and Robbie Thompson like to use subtext to help tell their stories. And Jeremy seems fond of wordplay so his episodes are especially fun to interpret
Not as fond about writing any female characters but ok
Let’s talk about that because I’ve read a lot of interviews with the writers. Kripke’s favorite character was Jo. She got a huge amount of hate mail and the network kept wanting to drop her to appease fans. Kripke always fought to keep her because he loved her so much. He reworked her story several times, taking her from a love interest to someone Dean thought of like a sister and giving her a strong identity as a hunter. It never did any good, the hate kept coming. Kripke was leaving after season 5, it looked like the show would be cancelled but if they did get picked up for season 6 he knew Jo would be written off without him there to defend her, so he gave her a noble end while he still could
In season 3 the character the writers were most excited to explore was Bela but the hate mail poured in. Most of the season 3 interviews with Kripke had him begging fans to give her a chance and promising she had a rich story that we’d love. The hate kept coming and they had to kill her off. Several of the writers have said they wish they could have written her longer.
Now let’s talk about Ruby. She also got an assload of hate but she was central to the story in season 4. They recast, hoping a new actress would make fans like her better. It didn’t help but they had to finish off the season with her. They made sure she died bloody because that’s what the fans wanted
For years they got hate mail every time a young female character joined the show. You have to keep fans happy or you wont have a show, so they understandably became cautious about introducing new females. They learned that middle aged mother figures, like Ellen and Jody Mills, were loved by the audience but anyone the same age as the guys would be met with a backlash of hate
in season 7 they introduced Charlie for one episode only and expected to never use her again. They were pleasantly surprised when there was an outpouring of love for the character and they were happy to bring her back for more episodes
They tested out Abaddon before committing to her story-line. If fans had hated her they could have left her cut up in little pieces and figured out a different enemy for season 9 (like a male Knight of Hell since male characters tend to be loved). Fans actually liked her so they sewed her back together and gave us a great character
The past couple years there’s been a turn in the fandom and we’re now asking for women on the show. Because we’d reacted so positively to Charlie and Abaddon they introduced Hannah. Fans seemed to like her so they’re giving her more airtime in season 10. But now rumors have started, unconfirmed rumors, that she and Cas might be having a romance and I’m seeing angry posts/tweets demanding she be killed off
The writers get all the blame for there being little female representation on the show but it’s simply not true. They’ve always been fond of writing females but every time they tried to bring one on for a larger story-line fans would want her gone. That’s why so many strong women get killed on this show. Like I said, the hate has gotten better the past few years, but it’s still here. Let’s stop blaming the writers for a problem that fans caused
