The pick this week comes from my favorite current prime-time shows and one of my top ten favorite shows ever, Supernatural!
Like pretty much every other fan, I am absolutely pumped for season 5, which starts September 10th! And there’s something interesting to point out. What I’ve really noticed is that while I don’t enjoy every little thing that happens on the show, I still love it a lot, and I still have faith in the fact that I’ll like an episode overall when I watch it. And part of that comes from good writing and storytelling, and great acting from Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Jim Beaver, and Misha Collins. It’s really nice to have an emotional attachment to the characters and to have more “good guys” to root for. And what’s more, there have been times where it looks like they would have dropped a serious bomb. For instance, the episode last season with the third brother a lot of fans were worried about, including myself. Hell, the episode was even called “Jump the Shark.” But in the end, that turned out to be one of my favorite episodes of the season. And episodes like “The Monster at the End of This Book” just goes to show that they care about their fans. This was actually one of the shows that helped start my interest in the sci-fi genre. So let’s see, good writing, talented actors, powers that be that care about their fans, and of course, two absolutely GORGEOUS men kicking demon ass? Seriously, what is not to like?
Since it’s about that time of the year again, my pick is the season 4 gag reel! I really love how it seems they have so much fun on the set. Looks like a really great place to work. Knowing this makes me enjoy the show even more. Can’t wait for the season 4 DVD set to come out!
The absolute hilarity behind the scenes on Supernatural, my online pick of the week!
