I’ve been binge watching this show off and on for a while now. I saw the first six seasons when they first aired and then, I moved to nights at my job so was unable to keep up. Now, I watch when I have time – usually while I’m loom knitting a hat for charity at the same time.
I’m up to Season 9 now, and the show has already lost most of its luster for me. The first six seasons had great story lines and lots of fun stuff to watch. Now, it’s just not as much fun to watch. As someone pointed out, “it’s monster of the week” episodes usually.
I still watch because watching sexy but not so smart Dean and smart but not as sexy Sam battling monsters is still fun. The kinda sexy Crowley and the cute Castiel are fun to watch with their own offerings to the show. Actually, right now the angel Castiel is human, and his own muddling through life is something I think is great for the show. It brings one of the larger than life all powerful denizens down to earth, literally.
Current story line: All the angels in heaven have fallen to earth, and a big group of them are hunting for Castiel because he’s to blame. Castiel, now human thanks to another angel ripping his “grace” away from him, is adapting to human life as best he can while hiding out from the angels. Sam, almost dieing(yet again) while attempting to close the gates of Hell, is possessed by the angel Ezekiel, but he doesn’t know it. Dean, knowing his brother is possessed, is having to live with the fact he’s lieing to Sam(again) while waiting for Ezekiel to heal Sam from the inside out. Ezekiel was also hurt during his fall so he’s healing himself while healing Sam – supposedly. Crowley is locked up in the dungeon of Sam and Dean’s “bunker hideout” and Abaddon, a demon, is taking over Hell while he’s gone.
It has a thread of interesting wrapped up in episodes of stupid which I fast forward through.
Anyway, just thought I’d share before I head off to work.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
