I'm pretty pissed off at myself for waiting so long to watch this show about two brothers on the road, hunting down the evil of the world. I had seen the first half of the first season when it first aired but this was during MLPT (My Life Pre-Tivo) so I got really far behind and sort of gave up. Last year, I started from the beginning again and got about half way through the first season (again) but I got scared watching by myself all the time so I gave up. (I'm a giant baby. You will never see a horror movie review on this blog). And despite my constant abuse of this fantastic show, it came back to me again and I grabbed my blankie, a glass of wine and dove right in. Thank God.

What a show. I have so much love that it's hard to put into words. One of the things I love most about it (so far) is that it doesn't need huge relationship drama and love triangles to be great. Don't get me wrong, I love those things. But to find such a spectacular show that doesn't rely on that stuff is a huge breath of fresh air. The only relationship that really matters is the one between Sam and Dean Winchester. And it's one of the best sibling relationships I've ever witnessed on the small screen. It feels so real to me. I even love when they fight, when they full out scream at each other, because it shows just how much they care for one another. I'm also a huge sucker for the teasing and the bickering. This show is HILARIOUS! I have had tears streaming down my face more times than I can count. Laughing so hard I cry and also just crying. Supernatural is not just funny as hell, it's moving beyond imagination. Who knew? Oh right. Everyone except my dumb ass.
I have favorites other than Dean though:
Favorites of Season 1: I loved the Pilot of course, setting the boys on their path. ("Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole!") And you can't beat the introduction of the Impala, the fake IDs and the amazing soundtrack (more on that later). I also LOVED "The Benders" and "Provenance". Both super scary and a hell of a good time. And at the finale. I screamed.
Favorites of Season 2: "Everybody Loves a Clown" scared the crap out of me! I have always hated clowns and this one makes Pennywise look like a puppy! "Playthings" had some of the funniest moments (like this one). "Tall Tales" was another that had me ROLLING! "Heart" had one of the steamiest love scenes I've ever seen on network TV. My jaw was on the floor. "What Is and What Should Never Be" was so bitter sweet. It was heart crushing to see Dean live his life without the supernatural stuff. Both because it was so great and because it wasn't. And then of course in the finale ("All Hell Breaks Loose Pt. 2") Dean makes the ultimate sacrifice for his brother after he cries over his dead body. Gut wrenching.
I think that about sums it up for now. I could go on forever about how much fun I am having watching this show but I do want to get back to actually watching this show. OMG you guys! Cannot wait to start Season 4!!! Have you watched it? Loved it? Need to warn me about anything coming up? Go crazy! Would love to hear your thoughts on this gem!! (NO SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS PLEASE!)
