SUPERNATURAL: An opinion
After a little over a year I have finished the full twelve seasons of the CW show Supernatural. For the two people in the universe unaware of this show it tells the tale of the Winchester family. They save lives and fight monsters. You know, the family business. Throw in a sweet Impala and a litany of monsters from around the globe and you know you are in for a good time.
I really love this show. I prefer the episodes where they are working a case, finding and destroying monsters. Each season has a bigger picture plot always looming in the background. Hell, for the first five seasons it was the same plot that dealt with the Biblical Apocalypse.
I appreciate a show with legs like this. Every year year they think of something to raise the bar. Season 13 will have them teaming up with Scooby Doo. The shows where they acknowledge themselves are the best. The episode where they are sent to the dimension where this company makes a show called Supernatural is probably the high point of that. When they discovered that their exploits were being chronicled in a series of pulpy novels was also good.
There are things they have done that I am not happy about. Killed people that I really cared for. Just shows how good a show can be when you care that much to get angry about the death of a fictional character. Everyone picks a team. If I had to pick one it would be Team Dean. How can you not appreciate a man who never backs down from what he believes in no matter what and loves pie to the degree that Dean Winchester does?
And I do not see what people see in Crowley. Can't stand the little fucker or his mother, Rowena. People do, but that is not for me.
In a world where a typical TV season is 8 episodes long with no chance of a second one, it's good to know that for the foreseeable future we will have Supernatural by our side.
To save people.
You know, the family business.
On a side note. Every year I engage in a thing called National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo for short.
Next year I have the perfect idea for a Supernatural novel. Hell, if it works I'll even try and submit it to the company that publishes those things.
UPDATE: Now that I am forced to wait for new episodes on a weekly basis I must say that I am not fond of the waiting. I'm thinking of going back to watch the Leviathan season again just for fun.
