I loved the Kim Manners tribute in 4.19 ...  
Okay, my review will come in its own time, as ever, after appropriate thought and much writing, but this one piece, I simply had to hug ...

When we see the boys in the motel for the first time, when Adam storms in while Dean is cleaning guns, we get a brief flash of the motel card on the table, and see that the boys are staying at ...

Kim Manor.

And the photo of the lounge act headliner beside and above the exhortation to "Join us in the Sonny Buono Lounge!" was none other than a younger, mustachioed Kim Manners.

I love our Show.

Kim, you will NEVER be forgotten by anyone associated with this show!

That is all, Good night. More later.  (Including finally responding to all those lovely comments, I promise!)

I saw that!!! Or at least I thought I did... Thanks for confirming it! I'm toying quite seriously with organizing a tribute convention to Kim -- think people would turn out for that??? I'd like to do it as a benefit convention - start a film school endowment in his name with some of the proceeds....

Aww ... that is just the sweetest thing. *sniffle*

Can't wait for my download to be complete so I can watch the boys.

I had heard it was coming--if not what "it" was. Otherwise I might not have caught it. I thought it was a totally appropriate tribute for a great human being.

I missed the art dept's tribute. I kept seeing Kim in references to No Exit and such.

I totally didn't get it the first time through but as I was watching the second time I about gave myself whiplash when I caught a glimpse. What a simply wonderful WONDERFUL tribute ... the whole episode seemed to be an homage to the man. Lovely!

I caught it. It make me laugh and choke up at the same time.
