What better way to launch this feature than with the tv show I'm currently glued to? I started season 1 last Sunday and I plan on starting season 2 today. You know that point where you sit back and realize that you're obsessed? Yeah, I'm there. I actually looked up Supernatural fan art and this is currently my phone screen:
So lets unleash the fangirl within and discuss why I love Supernatural so much.
First off, I don't know why I waited so long to start it. Actually, if I'm being completely honest, it's probably because I'm a huge scaredy cat. I mean, give me a creepy mystery and I'll devour it in a day but possessions and exorcisms send me running in the other direction. Last Sunday I found myself wandering my Netflix queue and decided it was time to give the first episode a shot. Four hours later and I'm still on my couch in the same position (I may or may not have had a little drool from staring at Dean for so long). Sure there are some creepy scenes and story lines but there's also an underlying comic relief. No episode goes by without me laughing out loud. So if you haven't started watching Supernatural because you're scared, start now and report back to me. There were a few episodes that had me triple guessing the shadows in my room, but Sam and Dean are worth it. If there's any doubt, just look:
The relationship between these two brothers is one of my favorite things of the whole show. They have this complicated relationship but you can tell they truly care for one another and would do anything and risk anything for each other. And even though I'm only on season 2 I feel like their characters never cease to surprise me, especially Dean. I love that he's supposed to be the bad boy of the show but as his character develops you start seeing a completely different side. Another thing I love is that each episode can pretty much stand on its own. They each have their own mystery that gets resolved by the end of the episode and to be honest, I love the separate stories more than the overarching storyline.
I also think that the cross country road trip feel is perfect now that summer is approaching. Oh! And my Grey's Anatomy fangirl heart is happy because Papa Winchester is a hottie. So if you're looking for a new show to marathon this summer go with Supernatural. TRUST ME. The first 8 seasons are streaming on Netflix so there are no excuses.
My question for those of you that have seen the show, any book suggestions so I can finish feeding my obsession? I've already read Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake.
Anyone currently watching the show? Or die hard fans that are already caught up? Can we please fangirl together? I hope you like this feature, leave any suggestions for shows you think I need to watch!
