Leatherman Raptor: Scissors Fit for the Upcoming Apocalypse

I have always believed that scissors are overlooked as weapons and as survival tools. The Leatherman Raptor is a versatile pair of scissors fit for surviving World War Z. While they might come in handy during zombie attacks, the Raptor was actually developed for medics.

The Walking Dead intertitle, via Wikipedia

The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse; it follows a small group of survivors traveling across the desolate USA in search of a new home away from the shuffling hordes of the undead. The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a police officer in the old world. As their situation grows more and more grim, the group’s desperation to survive pushes them to the brink of humanity. At every turn they are faced with unspeakable horrors, both from those who are dead, and from the scattered remains of a struggling human populace.

I don’t know what it is with the series on AMC, but they definitely have interesting ideas. This show is based upon a comic books, and I enjoyed watching the show. It reminds me of a lot of zombie movies, so it’s not revolutionary, but I did have fun.

Warning: spoilers ahead

… because of Supernatural. I just finished watching season 2 and 3. Previously, I had completely dismissed the show after the 1st season. A friend of mine turned me onto the show and I have to say that it’s combination of incredible storylines, music and muscle cars.

While I was watching the 2nd and 3rd season, I found it strange that the boys didn’t believe in Heaven and God. It didn’t make much logical sense since they knew that Hell and demons existed, this meant that by definition, God and angels had to exist.

The 4th season involves the angels of our Lord. The stories are great and I like how angels are portrayed. They aren’t agents of good, they are agents of God. In that respect, they always look at the big picture. The Winchester brothers have become polar opposites. Dean has become an agent of God and Sam is more demon than human. I loved how they brought Dean back from Hell. That an angel actually got him out of the Pit.

The episode Ghostfacers from season 3 (episode 13) was really awesome. I didn’t like how they lost the Colt. Hopefully, the Colt will be back in season 5. I have come to hate the sound of the way that the Impala’s door closes. There is this little click that really annoys me.

The Colt was used by Azazel’s agent to open up a gate to Hell in All Hell Breaks Loose Part 2 (season 2 finale), letting hundreds of demons escape Hell and enter the earthly plane. I enjoyed seeing John Winchester escape and probably make his way into Heaven. The way that his soul dissipated is evidence of this happening.

I like how the mythos of the show is organized. I like the reapers, the ghosts, the creatures and the duality between demons and angels. The Apocalypse is nigh. When angels rebel and want to free Lucifer, things are pretty bad. Castiel was stopped from becoming too involved with Dean. This will be a problem for Dean later on.

I wonder how Evangelical Christians perceive this show. It does show the occult, but with the 4th season, it also shows angels. Here is an article I found on the religious significance of Supernatural. The article correctly identifies that the show has been steadily moving away from Paganism and Wiccan aspect to Christian ones.

This article also dissects Supernatural and its influences on the characters it created. I’ve yet to see the religious significance of season 4 examined. It’s probably something that I would do.
