I had some time this afternoon.

And everyone's watching it. And writing fic about it, and well, there it is on streaming video on the CW site.

So, you know. I thought I'd watch the latest episode of Supernatural. To see what it was like. To see why everyone was so into it.

Yeah. That was.

Are they all like that?

(On the other hand, the woman did seem older than early twenties, which is what she'd have to be with that name. Because no girl was named Madison until 1984. That was supposed to be a *joke* in that movie, not a *trend*.)


Yeah, I really don't see what all the fuss is about. I stopped watching somewhere in the middle of episode 3.

This one was very intense.

Really intense.

(But, it's still opposite Grey's, so.)

I've seen exactly one episode [with a scarecrow in an apple orchard, IMSC] and stopped at that. It was utterly inane and ridiculous. Not to mention my then-roommate being like obsessed with it

I don't get it...

Pretty boys. Brothers, but that seems to be a non-issue.

But, see, it's where astolat is writing these days. And so I do want some points of reference.

They are not always this heartbreaking, but SPN often goes for the emotional/relationship/angst things you'd only get in fanfic in shows like SGA. I like it a lot. I'm not as much into the fanfic as for SGA, because the show delivers the emo porn already and I'm not into Wincest, but I have never trouble finding good gen when I'm i the mood for reading SPN.

That's interesting - there are a few shows out there like that, but most of them don't inspire mountains of fanfiction.

They're not all like that.

Some are EVEN MORE SO.

That's...oh, dear. More so?

Okay. Maybe I'll try this again.

I can't really answer whether they're all like that until I know what that is ;). I thought I knew, but the comments make me unsure.

I can tell you that I'm dizzy in love with the show in a way I haven't been dizzy in love with something for a long time. It's not just the pretty men, or even just the emoporn (although, slightly mocking term aside, the show goes to emotional places you really don't expect TV to go to; it gives the kind of emotional fallout that we usually have to turn to fanfic for). It that the show is actually quite good. It took a while in S1 to hit its stride (although the horror elements tided me over by being genuinely creepy), but once it did, there was no turning back.

"It" had me crying real tears. I don't do that a lot, and rarely for people I've never seen before, but there it is. I could feel strength of the relationship between the brothers. I was wondering if they're all so emotionally intense, and apparently they are.

But I did find this episode to also be well-written, so if that's the case - huh. I'm going to eventually need to see more of this.

I don't need another fandom.

yeah, that's what I said when I started to watch Heroes.

They're pretty much all like that, except for some that are like that time a gajillion. :-D

I keep waiting my chest to develop scar tissue over the spot where my heart keeps getting ripped out week after week after week...

I'm not crazy in love with SPN like most of the people in fandom, but I will say that it picks up speed and starts to get solid good towards the end of the first season.

Up until then, it's okay. Then, it gets interesting.
