Of course I'm still punning. Don't judge me.

Sometime last week, I dunno quite when, I realized that we had a couple more Buck-Leming episodes in the can before the S12 finale. On top of that, I realized we have another "fan favorite" character who was introduced by Robbie Thompson, and who was brought back on for a couple more episodes. Cue me going, "Oh fuck, Eileen's gonna die, isn't she?" Not JUST me, mind you. And I'd much rather have my increasing cynicism subverted and thrown in my face than have it validated. Seriously, this is not the kind of Told You So I enjoy.

SPOILERS if you need to know that, but know also: I’m done here. Fuck this show.

I should just catch up on Sense8 instead. )

I decided I was gonna make a list of cult horror references in Supernatural when I got caught up, and that time has arrived. If I went into every single horror reference I noticed over the seasons--not to mention the many cult movie icons who keep showing up as secondary characters (OMG it's Ginger! And Freddy! AND ALESSA!!!)--I'd never get off this one post. So I pared it down to my favorites, and tried to keep it in the realm of the slightly more obscure stuff that the average1 Supernatural fan might not have noticed.

1Keeping in mind that "average" is a misnomer at best. What I mean is people for whom this is the closest to horror they like to get, which includes the girl who got me into it in the first place. (Hi Gothie! *waves*)

Spoilers, Y'all! )

Yeah, I need a moment. The marathon will continue after I gather the pieces of my heart up off the floor. This is going to be somewhat more disorganized than usual. Bear with me.


Current mood: Overwhelmed by Feels.


Here’s something I just realized: somewhere between deciding to actually watch this properly, then getting hooked to the point of wanting to continue watching more episodes because it’s a lot smarter and more self-aware than I expected, and getting gut-punched by Season 2 in general, and by Episode 17, “Heart,” in particular (it’s about werewolves)--I have become a FAN of Supernatural. Because you know, I was kind of holding it at arm’s length before, mostly because of all the Problematic Issues people have warned me about. However, I was intrigued because so many of my favorite people seem to love it despite its issues, so I wanted to know what was so goddamn special about it.

BRACE FOR SPOILERS AND SO MUCH ANGST )
