Dr. Quinn, Medicine Zombie

If you have been keeping up with my Netflix habit, you know that I am currently watching Supernatural. It started because my niece has been after me to watch it.  Since I would do anything for her, I agreed – on the condition that she watch Parenthood with my sister.  Happily, they are complying and so am I.

By the way, it is now 12:08 am, the cats are hanging out next to the computer, the dog is laying on the couch watching Supernatural, and I am sitting at the computer instead of getting much needed sleep.

At first, I watched because I promised. Much to my surprise, I am liking the show.  And like my urge to count orange and yellow cars when I take a long road trip, I am starting to pay attention to the references to other shows.  I am thinking about keeping a list so I can discuss it with my niece. Tonight, Season 3 episode 15, a nod to Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman:

Dean: Yeah, zombie with skills, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Zombie.

This is not the first reference to other shows that I noticed, just the one that made me want to comment.

Just last night, still season 3:

Dean: I’m Batman!

Sam: Yeah. You’re Batman.

I wish he would have said, same bat time- same bat channel– but I wasn’t asked to write the episode.

Before this, there was the I Dream of Jeanie- Bewitched comment, which quite frankly, was the turning point for me, the point where I knew I was going to finish watching this series even though Scandal Season 5 is now available and I haven’t even finished House of Cards yet.

Sam: I don’t know. I guess they’re powerful enough. But not exactly like Barbara Eden in harem pants. I mean, Djinn have been feeding off people for centuries. They’re all over the Quran.

Dean: My God. Barbara Eden was hot, wasn’t she? Way hotter than that Bewitched chick.

When I was growing up I never could decide if I would rather be Jeannie or Samantha Stevens. They both had their advantages.  Of course at the time I also wanted to be Laurie Partridge.  It was a very confusing time.

I wish I hadn’t slept through some of the episodes because I probably missed quite a bit of TV and movie references.  Meanwhile I am trying to figure out which characters I really like and trying to figure out of Sam really is as cool as I think he is…and thinking about going to sleep at some point before I have to wake up again.

If you have any favorite Supernatural quotes, let me know.

Good night, all.




  1. The Dr. McSexy quotes are quite funny… but you are not there yet. If I tell you my favorites. Pig in a poke, … Not Tuesday again.. did you see episode 11? the groundhog day ??????
    Mystery Spot if you slept through it you need to rewatch, we rewatch regularly!


  2. during this show there are so many references to tv, movies and folklore but I don’t always catch them. Most of the made up names are musicians but every now and again it’s something I don’t know. We are so happy you are now at the parts of the show that go so good and made us true fans.

  3. I love when they tell people their names from musicians. Like ” Plant and Page” things like that. They are really funny together. I have watched their show for a long time. I take off a season or two then binge. Enjoy !

  4. Another great post 🙂 One of my co-workers is a die-hard Supernatural fan, and she got me watching it….I binged on it until the end of Season Five, but the gore got to be too much…however, it is really an awesome show! I had such a soft spot for Sam…and, Erin and I had several conversations about how impossibly-beautiful Dean is. As for Barbara Eden, and Elizabeth Montgomery, it’s a very close call, but I’d have to say, I thought Samantha was the prettier of the beauties….although, I still have a thing for harem pants–and would wear them at home if I could ever get my hands on a pair 🙂 Thanks for sharing 🙂
