The TV show Supernatural is on the cover of TV Guide Magazine for winning the Fan Favorite poll. There are many reasons why it deserved it.. This show has one of the most dedicated and incredible fan bases ever. And my daughter and I would like to express our opinions on the series. Since it began, Supernatural has never failed to keep our interest and excitement and keeps us at the edge of our seats. We watch in worry as these two young men go through some impossible situations until the problem is solved.
I (Teri) am not a sitcom/series person, in fact I mostly watch movies, but I am a writer and a physic, and I feel very drawn to things that are paranormal. For instance, I have watched the shows ‘True Blood’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’, and as entertaining as they are, they don’t truly show as much reality as Supernatural does. It is Sam and Dean and what they do that make the difference.
First of all, they are not in a love triangle,which makes other shows predictable and repetitious. These two young men are brothers and the love, respect and loyalty they have for one another touches your heart and soul. You worry and care about them as if they were your own family. Even though their family has been broken up, they bring us the values of what a family is, and what it should be that people may have forgotten. They really care for each other and it shows in everything they do. They have literally died for eachother. They grew up in the life of hunting, so they also care for every person they are helping and saving. They are strong, loyal, and good natured, which is part of why the show is so unique.
Another unique quality is the humor aspect. It lifts some of the seriousness of the show, and really makes you laugh such as the episodes Hell House, Tall Tales, Bad Day At Black Rock,Mystery Spot, Yellow Fever, Wishful Thinking, and Monster Movie. All of these were extremely funny episodes that don’t take you away from the main points of the story. Plus, it is enjoyable to learn about some of the old folk lore.
These boys have grown into men as each season progressed, and Jared and Jensen have grown as actors. The chemistry they have between them is wonderful, and you can clearly see it. And, of course, they are both gorgeous men. Lets not forget Misha and Jim, who are both excellent actors. The chemistry between all of them is incredible and great to watch.
So, with these strong male leads, why has the show not gotten more recognition? After six seasons, it finally gets to be on the cover of TV Guide. It is not just the “monster of the week” show it started out to be. It has amazing qualities, such as the music that is played (all Classic Rock), the ’67 Chevy Impala they drive (its another character,not just a car), and the amazing reoccurring characters they bring on. This show hasn’t gotten a lot of the recognition it deserves, don’t you agree? We hope and believe that it will now get all of that. It is amazing in so many ways and we hope it will stay on as long as it can.
