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.
