I began watching this show by accident years ago.
I freely admit to being addicted.
I’ve seen five seasons – we’re a bit behind here in New Zealand. At least we get it I suppose.
There is something about it – if you watch interviews with the cast or crew they all talk about the fans.
How loyal they are.
And we all are.
Once you’re a fan – well that’s it really.
I spent time (while I was still on dial up – so devoted – or is it demented?) voting for them to get the TV Guide magazine cover.
I like to think my vote did it – the boys (hereafter known as TB’s) got the cover.
I’ve tried to examine over five seasons why I like it so much.
Part of the attraction is definitely the writing. As a writer, whenever I read a book, watch a film, or TV show, I automatically examine the writing.
Supernatural writers are good. No, actually they are great.
This is a show that is about horror – ghosts, shifters, demons – they have it all. It is like a mini horror movie every week. But again and again, they have these moments.
Moments of incredible emotion. Laughter and love.
It is also about the acting.
TB’s do a great job. I feel like I have watched them grow up as the show has gone on. And they keep getting better.
Not that they didn’t do a good job in the beginning. But recently I watched the end of season five, and it blew me away.
Anywho…the daughter…God bless every one of her fingers and toes, got me seasons 1,2,3,4,5.
I rewatched Season 1. There were a few quirky little things for me.
1. TB’s voices – they are pitched a bit differently.
2. Obviously they had a small budget. VERY OBVIOUSLY. The driving in the car scenes – it was noticeable that it was fake.
Yet from these small beginnings it has gone on for 6 seasons with a 7th being filmed now.
I read once that the small budget was also responsible for the music. They couldn’t afford the newer popular stuff. Not a bad thing – if that’s true. The music has become one of the best things about Supernatural – for me, and I think most fans think the same.
♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫ OH HAPPY DAYS ♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫
Now that I have Seasons 1 – 5 well…you guessed it.
I’ve decided to rewatch ALL episodes.
At great cost to myself – hehehehe.
And review the lot.
So – starting with the Pilot Episode I’ll be busy watching Baby and TB’s over the next wee while.
Yes – I am rewatching from the Pilot.
The first time was just for pleasure.
The things we have to do !!!!!!!!!!!!!
