Supernatural- the Show
posted by West Coast Stacey/ snowwhitedrifted
WC/SWD: Fletch and I were watching some man channel with burly men doing manly things, like Ted Nugent bow hunting or something. I wasn’t paying attention, I was reading the Anthropologie catalog, when suddenly there were attractive men on the screen. Oh, it’s a commercial for some show.. but what? “Supernatural”, I had never heard of this show but I was intrigued by the pretty idea of another show having to do with supes (*note and holy cow, it’s been on since 2005?! I’m not surprised, I’ve never seen Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, or CSI anything). I asked East Coast Stacey about it.
EC: I love this show! It has pretty boys, and I know that is a big Stacey plus. More than that it is a different take on the genre. Not only do you have the vampires, werewolves etc., but also a fight between good vs. evil. God vs. the devil. Angels and demons, but it’s mixed up because who really is the good guy? Also, it’s VERY scary. Okay, I just love Sam and Dean.
WC: So, I set it on the DVR list, (*side note- Now our DVR playlist is pretty funny. Me: Vampire Diaries, True Blood reruns, Supernatural, Being Human, Mad Men, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Dora the Explorer (for the kiddo, ya’ll). My husbands’s DVR ‘d shows: Whale Wars, Deadliest Catch, Holmes on Homes, Elk Fever, Hunt for Big Fish, Seasons on the Fly, World of Beretta, Skins (I am hoping this is a hunting show, but I don’t think soo…..)). thinking, one day I’ll be able to get sucked into yet another cult series.
EC: Our DVR’s are very similar, my friend! But throw in some Dr. Who and Dexter for me. Oh and some Top Gear, Yankees games and F1 Racing. Wait a sec…isn’t Skins a ‘dirty’ teen show on BBC America? Is Fletch trying to hide it from you? Hmm… at my house we like the teen show Inbetweeners on BBC America, so I wouldn’t be surprised.
WC: Flash forward to the next Friday. I’m at the gym, on the treadmill, when I casually look up to see what is on the closest TV. It’s an attractive dude in a business suit in an elevator, talking/ yelling/ arguing with another attractive young dude in a cadet jacket. Looks promising. Ohhh, suit dude attacked jacket! They roll out of the elevator fighting (mind you, there is no sound, just the closed captioned type)! Someone throws a burlap hood over Suit’s head and bludgeons him repeatedly as blood soaks through the fabric. Whoa, this just got a hell of a lot more interesting. Oh look, and I’m already at a running pace without realizing it. Yada yada yada, some more stuff happens, I think Suit is dead, but no. He is brought to some ramshackled house and the hood is removed, he is perfectly fine, tied up, restrained, and covered in blood (ahhh, dreamy) but fine. OK, covered in blood and smirking, Suit looks kind of Eric Northman-esque. Needless to say I am sucked in.
WC: Oh I love that song.. the version they play in “Scream.”Creeptastic!
WC: Totally feasible thanks to Revitalift.
WC: So, more stuff happens. A creepy guy with yellow eyes (definitely not golden Edward Cullen eyes, more like venomous snake eyes… you know, like LeStew or Lil Kim, but yellow and more demon-y) shows up with some invisible hounds of hell. Then they pour salt everywhere. Mmmm, salt, invisible dogs, JCREW jackets… this is my kind of show!
EC: Scary demon! Yay! This show is so full of win. Oh and I want Uncle Bobby to be my demon fighting uncle. I loved that actor when he was on HBO’s Deadwood, too!
WC: I don’t know who Uncle Bobby is yet (I’m bad with names), but was he the one on Deadwood that would say “c-suckers” a lot? … oh wait, that was the whole cast.
WC: After watching the new episodes, I am still completely lost, but I am totally on board. Between shape shifting babies, Parker Lewis, Djinn fighting and manly hotness, I’ll be along for the ride, with Sam and Dean, speeding off into the sunset in their shiny, black, manly, muscle cars.
EC: You have just completely, sumed up why I love this show! Now you need to catch up with the previous seasons! You will not be disappointed
