Day 08 – A show everyone should watch:

Though I was tempted to put VD here since I know so many of you watch SN anyway, I went with Supernatural in the end, because it is a show I think everyone on my f-list should at least try to watch. I admit the premise doesn't sound all that exciting at first glance--two brothers road-tripping around the country fighting monsters and demons and such--and I was hesitant about such a limited cast, but after a few episodes it quickly won me over! <333 The central brotherly relationship between Sam and Dean is just so touching and compelling, and it's made me more interested in brotherly relationships in general. Sam and Dean also make for some great characters in of themselves, enough so that I didn't mind it just being them really for 3 seasons--though I love the additions of Castiel and Bobby to more prominent roles as well! :)

While some of the latest seasons have had their issues, overall this show has some great writing, story arcs, and character development. I think for the most part the mytharc has been very intriguing, often leaving you wanting more at the end of an episode and eager for next one (there's a reason why it took me less than 3 months to marathon through 92 episodes, lol). There's a pretty good mix of humor and drama and emotion as well. In short, it's a great show (my favorite after Angel), and it's a shame that so many people haven't even heard of it, let alone watch it....

In other TV news I am moving quickly through season 2 of Doctor Who, and may even finish it tonight!
Current Mood: goodgood

I've tried to watch Doctor Who a few times and...it's just not for me, I guess. I really did try. I watched several episodes.

Did you mean to say Supernatural? :s Because that's what I was recommending everyone watch here, lol, but I also happen to be watching Doctor Who for the first time...;)

BTW is this a new LJ account for you? I thought your account was jennilou and that perhaps you had just changed the name...(I guess I need to friend this account if so!).

No, I meant Doctor Who. I've watched all of Supernatural. You had just mentioned DrWho in your last line. ;)

Yes, this is a separate account. It's used for site updates so that people who want to be informed of any new content via LJ can keep up without checking the site or the site's twitter. But I don't really use my other account except to access a few comms and journals. I've been friending a few people I know on this accnt though and I try to keep up on my flist. :)

Okay I see...well I'm glad that you have watched/evidently liked SN at least! :). I wasn't sure if you watched that or not...I'm sorry you didn't like DW though, which season were you watching?

And okay I get it now (I remember you saying you didn't use LJ much, I'll friend this account then! :)).

Oh and random but I happen to be listening to the VM soundtrack as I reply here, which I found funny when I saw you icon! ;)

I watch a few eps from s5 but before that I saw a few eps of a few years ago. It just didn't work for me. Sad too because I am always looking at these super pretty picspams and wishing I liked it more. :/

And I do really enjoy Supernatural but it isn't my favorite show. I mean, last season I stopped watching after around ep 5 and then when the season was over I just marathoned through the rest. So it isn't a show that I feel really anxious about, where I am like "omg! can't wait until the next episode!" Plus it was on on Thursdays last season and I watched SEVEN shows on that night. It was annoying. I couldn't keep up on them all. :P

Yay VM! And sorry for the rambling!
