Supernatural: Be Still My Scared Senseless Heart

Supernatural is amazing. I have no idea how I’m going to catch up, though. Eleanor knows that I can’t watch them alone, so now that she’s marathoned them without me (thanks, sis), she’s definitely not as eager to re-watch them with me. I need her there, though, to tell me what’s going on (I do miss information here and there when I watch through my fingers)!

I’m also hesitant to keep watching now cause apparently Sam loses his soul??? (You know me, Eleanor. You saying “Spoiler” before a sentence just makes me need to read the sentence that much more…)

Speaking of Sam, I felt like he was grievously overlooked in my sister’s article. I definitely think Sam deserves more credit than he’s given sometimes. While I love Dean, I looooove Sam. He’s so sensitive and caring (while still kicking demon butt hardcore), and he has a great bedside manner.

Let’s be honest: Sam Winchester is the actual brains of the operation. While Dean hits first and asks questions later (an admittedly good characteristic to have in his profession), Sam observes his surroundings and figures out what devious thing is happening in a town and what devious creature is actually behind the strange happenings in said town.

Also, Sam’s storyline is crucial to the plot and is the reason the show’s been able to run for as long as it has been. Mysterious powers, weird demon friends, sketchy demon encounters as an infant, visions, etc. This guy’s got it all.

Finally, have you seen that jaw line? Those eyes, that height, those arms, that smile… you get the gist. Yup, I’m ready to start watching again.

Supernaturally Amazing

I feel as though it is my duty to talk about and praise the greatest show that has ever existed. So, I present to you: Supernatural.

Let me begin with the two greatest arguments I could give you.

Need I say more?

Vi said I do. So, allow me to explain.

Violet and I have been obsessed with this show since we started watching a couple years ago. (Well, I say we’ve been watching it, but really I’ve been watching it while Violet watches slivers of screen between her fingers.) I’m completely caught up, but she still has a little ways to go. I couldn’t hold off any longer. She makes us watch it in the middle of the day- completely taking away from the essence of the show!- so, I tend to binge watch after dark (so spooky!).

Lately the show has gotten into more arcs so that there is a common theme/challenge to overcome over several episodes or throughout a season, but to be completely honest, I would be just fine having them simply beat the crap out of demons and other supernatural beings week after week and nothing more. The larger story is great, but for me, it just takes away from the action and slows everything down at times. And, my, how I do love to watch the action.

Not surprisingly, I am a Dean girl (dem bowlegs doe). I mean, let’s be real, he kicks some serious butt. He asks few questions and fires from the hip. And above all, he protects his sensitive little brother (sound familiar?).

Don’t get me wrong, Sam’s great and all, but he does contribute to the aforementioned slowing down (with the exception of SPOILERS, VI! soulless Sam. I could actually get on board with some soulless Sam. OKAY, YOU’RE GOOD.)

Basically, if you’re looking for some quality, kickass, entertaining television, stop your search. This is it.
