So do the writers on this show really plug Sam’s character and really make it all about Sam? I can see this to a degree that since season 3 Sam has had a lot wrong with him. Seasons 1-3 he was very different from what he clearly is now. Do we see a changed man, do we see and sense a man whom has no feeling for anyone very much. The fandom is in a state, and what can really change this rift, about how many really feel about Sam. Are our heroes split down the middle, and still not really united in the fandom.
- Sam is researching the men of letters.
- Sam is on a personal mission to cure demons.
- Sam is going through regular changes.
- Sam is getting cured.
- There’s a big secret about Sam.
He’s basically the tool used to cause the chaos that he and Dean need to fix each season. And sometimes he’s the one that needs fixing.
Now I feel in tune with the above comment, that so much has happened to Sam and each season has gone by and the stories have involved him. Are we right to think and feel this way? Is Sam the main antagonist the one that the stories do revolve around, which I have always to a degree thought about Sam. As Dean never really seems to get a taste of action that Sam appear’s to get. I also think the writers seem to engineer a story and don’t really follow it through, they don’t really heal Sam and let Sam emotionally talk it through about what he’s gone through and how he’s matured. It also appears that Dean is usually the one to make that discussion in fixing Sam when he himself often needs attention.
Now I can see their point that Sam has been a real total douche this season, and has not really opened up about his actions, and acted a total dick about Benny when in the long run we see in Taxi Driver that there was no real reason to get so worked up about Benny. But me as a Sam fan, can see why his actions were granted and what effect Benny was having on Sam at the time. So does Sam really take on most of the adventures that the boys face. Does he really need to continually have all the high drama centered around him. Is it time for a change, and step back to season 3 and see that concerned Sam over Dean once again. I miss Sam as was, not how the writers now have appeared to make him and use him as a tool sometimes to cause the major rifts all the time. Dean appears to have all the good things happen to him, and help Sam get over his afflictions to the point where it is becoming a little obvious.
I think the writers really need to change course, and make Sam much more likable as many feel they are being put off Sam by his actions and delivery. Can the writers change direction and work our hero into a likable person before its too late, or do you feel Sam is okay and doesn’t need tampering with? Or is this over reaction and once again beating the same record over and over. If the role were reversed would the audience feel happier that Dean was in the spotlight more frequently, would this make Sam more likable? I love both brothers, and can see both sides of this debate, that has been churning for sometime now. Does the shows characters need to change and freshen up for season 9, for fear of loosing fans, or do they travel down the same road and not flicker an eye.
So Bella would like to no your real feelings about Sam and his story, the way its being told, and if its really doing Sam as a character any favors. Is Sam really maturing or acting like a little boy having his brother tender his every move. Can Sam really mature on his own merit, and be the hero many crave him to be. Or doesn’t it over bother you and doesn’t matter which brother is in the spotlight. Or perhaps feel like me, that you are in the majority who would like to see a more balanced show, where both brothers are viewed equally, and both have a piece of the action, and both attend to each other in times of need.
