Robin Covington’s Top 10 Reasons Why I Fangirl Over Supernatural
Hi – I’m Robin and I love SUPERNATURAL.
Actually, I think that love is too weak a word to describe my obsession over this show. As a die-hard Buffy and Joss Whedon fan (he still writes the best dialogue. period.) I am really hard on parnormal TV shows and movies so when I have the Winchester brothers a chance, no one was more surprised than I was to learn just how much of a fangirl I have become.
Baby – the Impala
Dean loves his car, a 1967 Chevy Impala and at first I didn’t feel the love. But, once I learnd the backstory and realized that this was more than a car-this was Dean’s sole connection to a past and family he desperately wanted, I was all in.
The show has wonderfully funny storylines that include the real world fandom that loves the Winchester boys. I particularly loved the episodes that gave a shout out to the fan fiction movement and the SPN fan conventions. What an amazing way to say “thank you” to the fans.
The Sense of Family
This story is all about the Winchester Brothers. They only have each other and with Dean as the protective older brother it has led to ups and downs that rip your heart out. The episodes that gave them a glimpse into the past of their family was some of the best television ever plotted.
History and John’s Journal
In the beginning, John’s journal was the only guide the boys had to work as hunters and while this has been downplayed in later seasons, it always tied into history and out a special SPN twist on it. Like, when the special gun made my Samuel Colt featured prominently on the show, the facts were joined with the fiction to make the story interesting. In the current season, the writers wove in a storyline about Cain and his role as the first murderer and tied it into the stuff going on with Dean and that episode literally kept me glued to my seat.
This soundtrack features the very best of classic rock and if you ever wanted to dip your toes into this genre, this is the way to do it. You can hear such great bands as Bad Company , AC/DC, Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult, Styx etc. When they open with “Carry On My Wayward Son” by Kansas – I get goosebumps.
Surviving the End of the World
Yea- I pretty much know how to survive anything: vampires, demons, fallen angels. Give me some salt, holy water and John’s journal and I am sooooo good.
Maggie,Crowley, Kevin, Garth, and Bobby. These guys come and go and every time you see them you give a huge sigh of happy to see them again. But, they are also the most vulnerable and you just KNOW that sooner or later they will die and rip your guts out.
On the road again . . .
For most of the show, these guys had no set home. They wandered from town to town, job to job and lived in cheap motels. And while having no tie to the mundane was fun it was also the source of the biggest heartbreak for the viewer. You want these guys to find that place…but you don’t.
For a while I tried to keep track of all the ways the boys paied homage to their favorite music and movies by using their names when they had to impersonate Federal Agents. The lineup is quite impressive: Agent Nugent, Ford and Hamill, Nigel Tufnel (“Spinal Tap”), John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Fathers Simmons and Frehley (Kiss), US Marshals Billy Gibbons and Frank Beards (ZZ Top), Agents Page and Plant (Led Zeppelin), Detectives Bachman and Turner (Bachman Turner Overdrive), Mr. Campbell (Bruce), Mr. Raimi (Sam), Agents Angus and Young (AC/DC), Agents Tyler and Perry (Aerosmith), and Agent Ulrich (Metallica). My hubby and I keep saying that we are going to create a drinking game based on this aspect of the show – stay tuned
Sam and Dean
These guys are so awesome as characters. Flawed. Angry. Hurt. Funny. Brave. Caring. Loyal. I have my favorite (Dean!) but these are two of the most full and vivid characters on television. I get to a point where I think they won’t surprise me and they do and I love them even more.
