Supernatural: Wendigo through Bugs  
Okay, so I am enjoying the show. I was pretty sure I would given my X-Files past.



I like them. The actors have great chemistry together and I buy that they are brothers. And I'm fond of all the talk of their father. As a gal who loves family myself, I enjoy how the central theme is about family. I can relate to it and it's refreshing.

So which brother do I like more? That's a tough call. I'm already predisposed toward Dean because I first met the actor through Smallville when he played Jason Teague. And that man does have amazing eyes. And he's funny and seriously messed up. At the same time, I really like Sam. He's very angsty and smart. I've always liked the angsty smart characters on shows. So it's a tough call for sure. I think I'm happiest when Sam is angsty and Dean is whumped. The thought of that combo just makes me smile for reason.

Or it could be because the first episode (or at least last 20 minutes) I ever saw was In My Time of Dying. So...I've got a bias from the very start.

Anyway, the eps were good. Some more than others and it's hard for me not to pass judgment because many of these plots have been done before. (Bugs reminds me of X-Files Darkness Falls, but I found the XF version much creepier.) But the show does make me chuckle because I see it as more of "the poor man's X-Files." it's not like they have the funds to do their gig like Mulder and Scully had. And with the X-Files, the occult was just a part of the story, usually their stand alone eps. With Supernatural, it really is the basis. So it's cool.

So I've had some fun with it. I'm sure I'll continue to enjoy the show when I watch more.

However, that's enough for me for now. I'm going to switch gears and jump to one of my other shows and save some of this one for later. I have 2 eps of SG-1 left *sniff* and then there's always Farscape and MacGyver. We'll see which part of my brain wins out first ;)

I've only watched through episode eight of season one. So far, so good. And I've watched almost all of the season 2 ones. Not hard to figure it all out.

I do like the brothers' chemistry the most. I have to watch the show during the day though. It sometimes creeps me out.

I'm the opposite. I'd rather watch at night with all the lights off. Boo ;)

Hey, I think I actually saw Wendigo... *tries not to sound pathetic*

Um, yeah. Dean does do whumped well, heh heh. And he does worried-out-of-his-mind well, too, but I don't know whether that's just a season 2 thing. Sam is angst incarnate, which is nice. And he does angry/crazy/evil reeeeally well, but again, not sure if that's just in season 2. Overall I think Jensen is the better actor, but Sam's totally my fave character. Yay. :)

I feel like Sam should be my favorite character. In just about everything I enjoy, I've always gone for the Sam type character. But for whatever reason, I keep gravitating toward Dean. But not completely. I'm like in this limbo place between the two. If Sam is angsty and Dean is hurting, I seem to be in the best of both worlds.

I am very weird...

Sounds perfectly logical to me. ;)

I like this, too. I love their different views of him.

I love both brothers, too. I'm a bit of a fangirl about Dean, but I adore Sam, too. I'm more like Sam myself, but I also identify with Dean in a lot of ways. :-) Dean is the rescuer. He puts everyone first--family first, then everyone else. He's also very compassionate even if sometimes socially awkward. I love how he relates to kids.

I'm still slowly collecting the Farscape episodes. I hope that eventually they'll show the ones they skipped this last time around. *g*

hehe I didn't mean to imply that I'm a rescuer. I identify more with Dean because I was also a big sister and was very protective of my sister and also somewhat more like a parent than a sister in some ways. In personality, interests, and temperament, I'm probably more like Sam. hehe

No, I understand. My personality is like Sam. Just like in SG-1, my personality is a cross between Sam and Daniel. And X-Files I was more like Scully...etc, etc. But I can relate to Dean, too, being the older sibling. I always put family first. I feel a certain kind of loyalty to family. I still went off and did the college thing, but while my brothers goes off and has fun and lives his life, I'm the one that stress and worries and wants to stay close to home to make sure everything is okay here. So, I don't have much of a life. In that respect, I can understand Dean very well.

Exactly. *g* It's funny that even though my sister lives closer to my parents and toolman's siblings lived closer to his mother, we were the ones who kept tabs on them and probably helped them out more. And now with my own kids, it's the same. I try to strike a healthy balance, but I like to be here if they need me. I couldn't imagine just taking off and not being available if something happened.

And I'm insanely protective of my brother ;)

It's hard not to be, isn't it? *g* And now I'm the same way towards my kids--even moreso, really, because they were entirely my own responsibility--well, me and toolman, of course. hehe
