It’s Supernatural (Possible Spoilers)

Supernatural

I have been watching “Supernatural” since it first aired six seasons ago.

But the most recent episode has probably been my favorite ever. So I’m going to warn you now… potential spoilers ahead.

In the most recent episode, Sam and Dean are thrown through a window to end up in an alternate reality. The alternate reality is actually “our” world, where Sam and Dean are Jared and Jensen (the actors that play the characters on the show). So the episode took this premise that Sam and Dean still THINK they are Sam and Dean but they have a chance to see how their actor counterparts actually live in this world.

I laughed through most of the episode as it was more or less written as having them make fun of themselves as actors and as people. Watching Sam and Dean max out their counterparts’ credit cards was funny, but seeing Jared’s face when he realized that he’d married Ruby (or rather, Genevieve Cortese Padalecki, Jared Padalecki’s actual wife) in that world was priceless. Also, it was nice to see her back on the show, even if she was playing herself this time. I always liked Ruby.

However, Misha Collins stole the episode. I had NO idea how huge he was on Twitter (his actor counterpart was tweeting everything in the episode and it was funny), but I added him (@mishacollins for those of you who are curious) and found out that this guy is hysterical and does tweet quite a bit and has garnered quite a following. And the tweets from the show apparently made it to his real Twitter account. WIN!

It was a great episode and really a good example of why the series has lasted six seasons. In the end, this show has a sense of humor (although it can be scary at times) and doesn’t take itself too seriously. But it’s the relationship between the two brothers, Sam and Dean, that make it interesting to watch week after week. And kudos to Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki for pulling that off.

In fact, the best line of the episode was, “We’re not even brothers in this world.” And it was almost heartbreaking to hear because that relationship is so believable on-screen.

Count “Supernatural” as one more thing I’m a fan of.

However, you’ll never see me at a Supernatural convention….

    Well part of the problem as that writer mentions, with that particular track of Supernatural cons -they’re by Creation. Which are HORRIBLE and yes, they’re primarily and possibly only run to make money.

    Gallifrey One is extremely unique in that it’s not for financial gain it’s for fun. Obviously money is needed for the con to exist but for the price it’s money well spent – especially since there isn’t a tier system which locks general admission people out of possibly interesting panels and what not.

    Also despite this years autograph craziness it’s still better then most other places where you don’t have a chance in hell of getting autographs at no additional cost. (Though there is a rise in dealer room only guests and oddly, fewer dealers. Which is a shame since in the past there have been really cool dealers at Gally… )

      Well, the biggest difference is that Gallifrey One is a con run by fans, too. Creation is only in the convention business to make money, obviously.
