Months go by and on forums newbies often ask what is your favorite season? Its often hard to narrow favorite episodes and seasons down. Particularly seasons 1-5 as it was a complete season arc which was what I always loved about this show in particular, that all the seasons cohesively meshed together. Which I found I didn’t enjoy as much when it came to Sera’s era. I think with Jeremy we may get that much needed cohesive arc structure once again, and I will be happy.
So my question today folks, is when is a season a good season for you. When do you nail it and say wow, that was golden. What makes a season a superb one, when we take a step back and say yes that was the best in the shows history. Is it a compilation of acting, the writing, direction or something much deeper. What narrows those margins down for you and analyse it with a fine tooth comb, and suggest to others that this season is actually a masterpiece.
Experts are experts in their field because we practice and practice hard at their craft to get better. So has this show over the years got better, or has it dwindled for reasons unknown to us? Do we sense that a series can only go on for so long, and eventually the batteries will crash and die. Can a season get any better and sustain it once its reached its pinnacle? Can a show tire of stories, can they wither and become repetitive to the point of burning out, and running dry? So is ten years too long for a seasonal show to survive and keep up its momentum. Is a fan base enough to keep it from the brink and going under? Or is Supernatural a show not to be messed with and, is up there with the greats?
So type away and see if we can suss what makes a season stand out from all the rest, and what makes it so special. What makes a season a seasonal great in your eyes and can it be improved upon, and become even better, or had Supernatural reached its peak?
