Your own feelings about this show?

Today is a very special day for us fans and the show. So I felt I had to put some ink on the paper and celebrate and designed a new blog banner especially for the occasion.  So how do you as a fan really feel about this triumphant milestone? So much has happened within 200 episodes and so many stories have touched our hearts and melted us so many times. I think the writers were amazing in thanking us all in contributing to put their own story and nod us in its milestone. As after all, if it wasn’t for us watching, there would be no show to celebrate.

I am dedicated to this show not because of the most obvious reason that it is in fact a horror show. The horror for me has never really come into its equation, but adds drama to the existing story line. I became hooked because of a human using supernatural powers. Seeing Sam use something so unnatural to humans stirred my imagination and engaged me on his journey. I was in ore of his struggles and how he came to try and over come them on a manly level. I think the second reason for me was the brothers relationship, this really got to my heart strings and melted me so many times I just had to stay with these boys to see what happened. 7 years on I am still with these boys and find them so captivating even more so 7 years on. Sam cannot live without Dean, and Dean cannot live without Sam. So what do they do when a death to either happens, try to bring them back by supernatural means, making a deal springs to mind. I applaud their determination to carry on, and shine a torch for each other. How through the hard times they manage to attempt to try and live without one another and have been apart more than once in 9 years. But are drawn back into the life because they cannot support themselves on their own without the other. It is heart wrenching to watch. I also think my third feeling for this show comes back to family and what FAMILY really means to them both.  Being the last men standing, and possibly being the only man standing scares them ridged to the core forcing them to do strange, unhuman things so they are not completely alone in the world. They lost their parents to the supernatural which had some considerable affect on them both for many years, and still feel their loss. Not just loosing them, but in the horrific way they died at the hands of demons.

I think Eric Kripke’s vision was an amazing adventure, the twists and turns he implemented into the heart of these boys journeys were and still are ore inspiring to many. Some say the story is not as good as it was under his reign which is a testament to him. And others say its improved under new show-runners. Either way the boys still travel on those back roads fighting demons and other things that go bump in the night. We wonder what might happen to them next and what dangers they both have to face and over come in their supernatural world.

Some amazing support guest stars have also been created along the way, who I feel have to have a mention, as without their talents the show would be a little duller. Honorary mentions have to go to Misha Collins, Mark A Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino, Jeffery Dean Morgan, Samantha Smith, Samantha Ferris, Tracey Dinwiddie, Kurt Fuller, Jake Abel, Robert Englund, Julian Richings, Charles Malik Whitfield, Linda Blair, Christopher Heyerdahl, Rob Benedict, Richard Speight Jr … to name but a few amazing actors to tread these boards spanning 200 episodes. Names which will linger with us for many years after the show ends. They all bought something rather special to the table and have grown to love and hate so many of them respectively. Some characters only appeared in the odd episode as a cameo but others left a more lasting impression on us that still haunts us to this day and wish they’d make a return to the show!

So I have read huge negativity for this episode considering its event and I have to say I feel them. I am not so optimistic that it will be a good one. I just don’t feel that musicals really sit well on this show. Perhaps that is the story the meta episode that will make it as special as episodes like The French Mistake and Changing Channel’s. I knew of the musical episode being introduced but never dreampt that it would be included on the 200th. If it were a rock musical I could see it fitting into the shows genre. As rock music is a big part of this show. I as a whole love musicals so my own opinion is so torn with this idea. I didn’t like the idea of seeing fake Sam and Deans, and a cut-out Impala. Okay yes, this is a high school musical school production where a case comes up in the middle of the story. But I am still not excited over the thought of sitting through 42 minutes of dread. No Castiel, No Crowley!! just young silly, school girls with a crush on the show. Not what I was expecting. I am hugely disappointed, but perhaps I maybe rewarded and give it higher praise this week, but don’t hold my breath. I did however, want to see more Demon Dean ….. Which was cut short in its prime.

  1. Hi guys,
    I loved it even though I was a little dubious on hearing it was to be a musical. Then I heard that the brothers would not be singing and felt a little better about. The Buffy musical is one of my all-time favorite episodes. I know every one of those songs. This episode isn’t quite there, but it’s a very, very good effort and I did cry during their rendition of Carry On My Wayward Son. I’ve always liked that song and this is one of the most beautiful versions I’ve ever heard. I enjoyed how they added all the fan concerns, like Adam still being in Hell, and the Samulet. I also would love to see more of the young lady, Marie at some point in the future. She has horrible taste in fan fiction but I loved her attitude anyway. The sound girl was hilarious. She was so unimpressed by Sam. Anyway, my review/recap is up for those of you who are interested. There are Spoilers though, so be warned. It is a recap.

    I can’t comment on Buffy Ikeke because I’ve never seen it. So I have nothing to compare the Supernatural musical with. It wasn’t overall dyer but I still think that the writers could have done a whole lot better if used their imagination more than to come up with a lame, child run episode of Supernatural. I wonder what Kripke would have come up with? Since he was at the 200th Party, I would have loved to have asked him this very question. Also I wonder what he thought of Carver’s version? I didn’t like Marie, as the writers seem to think that all fans are like this. They created Becky Rosen who wasn’t a nice character. Do they assume we are ALL like this pair. They created them, so they must think fans have of some of their spirit in them. Both Marie and Becky are nuts. Yes, I agree with the sound girl she was funny, and a neat little actress. Probably my favorite out of the cast. I don’t think I will re-watch this for a while 😦

    1. Just wanted to say my husband watched the show tonight. He has been watching as long as I have but he’s not in the fandom. I had to explain Destiel to him lol. He loved it. He thought it was one of the best episodes he has seen in a while. If you liked the songs they are or are going to be available on i-tunes!
      I saw the songs were available on the board, I wonder where those proceeds will go to? The track I did love was the first one, the upbeat number. Not sure of any titles. I love how your husband has a free mind barb, I would love to be in that room with you both.

  2. As a huge Supernatural fan, the 200th episode is a great disappointment. Seriously, a play with kids? Very disappointed. It’s not even remotely funny. Writers, you bombed on this big time, gotta do much better than this. GET SERIOUS.
    JoAnn @ SweetPepperRose welcome to the group, great to see a new face! I half agree with you. That I too was very disappointed that it was full of kids, and that there were no real adults around. But I did happen to think it was funny in places. I think the writers did impress me there. But I so wanted them to do better to!!

  3. Hey everybody! I for one am ecstatic about tonight. 200 episodes! SPN is joining American television history because there are very few shows that last so long. I absolutely adore the show and the twists and turns. My only complaint about the post Kripke era, especially under show runner Jeremy Carver, is the dwindling presence of ethnic minorities on the show. During season nine, only three non white characters had speaking parts on the show. Kripke’s version of America was very inclusive of racial minorities and I enjoyed watching Gordon, Agent Hendrickson, Uriel, Cassie, Raphael, the Alpha Vampire and of course Kevin and Mrs. Tran (only minority recurring characters after Kripke). Kripke included everyone as angels and demons; heroes and foes and love interests. Sadly, that inclusion is missing today. Other than that, I still love the show.
    Supernatural_Forever that is an interesting observation. I hadn’t really taken much notice of this maybe your right, maybe it has dwindled in recent years.

    I must be in the minority because I am looking forward to the musical episode. I remember when Buffy had a musical episode and I thought it was delightful. Since it does not appear that Sam and Dean will be singing, I think that it will play out like “The Real Ghost-busters” episode. I trust the writers to produce something memorable for such a historic episode. If the episode is stupid, so be it, but I will continue to watch and support.
    I left you a message on your previous post about my feelings. So don’t want to re-outline what’s already been said. I never watched Buffy, so can’t really comment on that show either! Me to, even though I disapproved of the episode I will not give up on this show! It will take me a lot to give up.

          1. I screamed at the end! OMG! They really listened to the fans! This is one if the best episodes of Supernatural I have seen in a looooooong time. It rivals The French Mistake in hilarity! I absolutely loved this episode! Loved it!!!!
            I may get to love this down the line, but for now The French Mistake comes out tops for me. And even that one took a while to warm up for me on re-watch!! I am not a great meta fan never have been which could be a reason why I haven’t fallen in love with this episode. But the Samulet moment did steal it for me I have to admit. The acknowledgement of it out shone me and delighted me. Even though it was a fake replica!!

  5. I watch for the boys and their love for each other-for their friends like Cas and Bobby and ash etc that fight the good fight to keep people safe. I watch for the classic rock and for Baby. I love the show. I am glad that twitter doesn’t seem to be as negative about tonight as IMDB. I think it can be a great episode if done right, and I know Jensen and Jared will make it the best it can be. I don’t really mind that on it Sam and Dean are in it-as its THEM that have done 200 episodes and its them that we are celebrating.
    You know where I will be tonight at 9 🙂

    I so agree with all you’ve said Barb! IMDb is sadly negative, and can spoil it for some. But there are also some positive points about the message board too. For example; I love their knowledge, and how strong they are about certain aspects of the show. Where they get their information from their source material and so on. I tend not to look any where else, as any information I get tends to come up there any way. I love your quote ‘Its them we are celebrating’… That again is so true, as if they were not on screen it would be someone else. I love these boys so much and are a huge part of my soul and since joining the show mid-season 4 I haven’t looked back.

  6. I am looking forward to seeing the 200th episode, although I may have to wait a day because of a time conflict. darn! I have not read any negative comments about the episode and I’m glad. I am not concerned about whether or not the episode is a huge hit, I am just celebrating the milestone for my favorite show! I did read that the writers wrote the 200th episode as a “love letter to the fans”. I consider that a gift and I would never want to be someone who would be anything but appreciative of it. I love Supernatural. It inspires me to keep trying, to keep going. It stimulates my imagination and makes me feel like there is so much more to life than our little worlds. Most of all, the brother’s relationship warms my soul. The fact that the actors seem to be such nice people is like the icing on the cake. So, I am embracing the opportunity to celebrate Supernaturals 10th year. I am not a young person, so I decided that this was the time to go for it. A SPN convention is finally coming to Minnesota this year and I am saving my pennies so I can go!
    Congratulations and THANK YOU Supernatural! Congratulations to all the fans- you made it happen!!!!! — AB/C

    I don’t want to ruin it for you AB/C but I was disappointed. But that’s just my own personal feelings. I want you to feel happy with it, in your own mind and if you are, that’s wonderful too! I was so looking forward to the 200th because of its longevity, and huge milestone, but having been on my famous message board, those feelings did turn sour. There was so much unhappiness surrounding it and there were reports of even Jensen being unhappy with the story content and he’d gone in to speak to Robbie Thompson. There were parts of it that were special and there is no getting away from it. But for me the actresses spoilt it. I loved the production within a production feel, and the story telling that went on around the musical but the musical part per say was cheesy. Sorry to rain on your parade….
