ROADTRIP: Vancouver, Supernatural set visit (April 21st)
It was our last day in Vancouver and we had completely given up hope of catching any Supernatural filming. So, on Monday morning, as we were visiting their previous filming locations in the Delta area (where many parts of the show were filmed, such as the crossroad scenes, Roadhouse exteriors and the gas station bit where Castiel first speaks to Dean), we accidentally bumped into a location sign..
Misha Collins’ “Suspicious Bulges” - a TSA America short - is screening at the Beverly Hill Film Festival on Thursday 24 April.
Directed by Misha, the short was written by Misha, Vicki Vantoch and Philip Schneider, and produced by all three with David Edington.
"Suspicious Bulges" cast includes Danneel Ackles, Misha Collins, Colin Ferguson (among others). The screening will take place from 5pm at 6081 Hollywood Blvd. Full details on the Beverly Hills Film Festival website.
And be sure to be like Misha himself (well, at least for the time being ;-) ) and follow the TSA America: Level Orange Twitter account for more profound and informative tweets like:

Since “Meta Fiction”, I am even more convinced than before that I want for Cas to be the “new Bobby”. NOT in the Garth-sense, i.e., not a copy who repeats Bobby’s dialogue and tries to imitate his mannerisms, but a character who fills the gap in the SPN (and Winchester) universe left by Bobby’s death. To me, Meta Fiction showed that he is perfectly capable of playing exactly this role:
a) A fellow hunter, who is informed about the Winchesters’ ongoing quests and helps them out without being a permanent part of their team, and
b) someone who cares deeply about both Winchesters, and who will impact their decisions on an emotional level.
In short: After Bobby’s death, Cas is the only character with whom the Winchesters share both a professional and an emotional bond.
I know a lot of people want to establish TFW as a permanent solution, but I do not see that happening anytime soon. As it is, “Cas as Bobby”, i.e., a recurring, important, but not permanent team member who can - but does not need to - have his own plotlines is exactly what I want for the character.
