    Wouldn't it just be "onically", since the misidentified prefix would be the "ir-" form of "in-"?

    Angel didn't age so well, unfortunately.

    What is this I don't even.

    I am surprised Tycho, for all his word-love, didn't pick up on that as a name such as an angel would have.

    Unless he would refuse to acknowledge it, as it's not a canon name. That would track.

    Disagree! I watched it for the first time a few years ago and enjoyed it.

    The first five seasons were the best. The last couple were actually pretty good too.

    Hah! I thought it was just me. But...
    Of course, after a certain point I quit watching, because if you're just going to bring back anyone that dies, pretty much everything loses all of its gravity. It's like- so what? When you can fight your way out of heaven or hell, no amount of mortal peril matters. I got bored REAL fast after they BOTH got the get-out-of-death-free card. I have no doubt that if they ever die again, that unless it's the series finale, they're just going to come back to life within a single episode. And it's way offensive, when entire seasons revolve around leading up to someone's inevitable death, and then they're literally alive again in the next episode, with no explanation for it whatsoever. They should have actually showed us a period of time where the character was gone, even if it was only an episode or two. They could have included Sam in some of Dean's painful flashbacks, if it was an issue of screen time or contractual obligations.

    Eh, I'd almost agree, but the brothers have an interesting relationship with death (both figuratively, and literally with the character of Death), and it gets addressed in the show itself at times too. Yeah it can be a bit silly, but I find it to be a really enjoyable show. Also, they bring back some people from death, but not all. They basically pick off their ensemble cast like petals from a flower, mercilessly. The brothers and Castiel though, yeah they have plot armor. Also if I am remembering right, there have been episodes where one of the two brothers was 'dead' or at least assumed dead by the other. Once for long enough for one of them to go and basically build a kind of normal life.

    I don't think there's a prefix in "eíron".

    That's the 'free sample' the dealer gives you.

    Something I get the reference of for once. I thought the show was decent until like others said they started dragging it out. From my understanding the creators wanted it to end long ago and left the show so its just the network continuing it since it's one of the few shows they have that has alot of viewers.
