The last season I watched was the seventh. That was the one where….do I mention it with a Spoilers warning? It was five years ago, you would think it was no longer a surprise, but I’m sure there are some people out there that hasn’t seen it yet, so I’ll refrain from giving the name of the person who dies. But that’s how long it’s been since I watched Supernatural. I’ve been a big fan of this show for the first six seasons. I watched Season 7 and did not find it up to the quality of the previous seasons. But I still hadn’t meant to stop watching it. A lot of shows have a bad season, doesn’t mean I’m giving up on them if I really like them.
Supernatural was one of those shows I never watched when it first aired. Between my work schedule and trying to find time to write and somehow squeeze in a little time for other things I rarely watch television as it airs. There are some shows I make it a point to. Or as close to possible as I can. Most of viewing today is done on Netflix or Hulu, which means I’m watching a day late, but that’s fine. Even when I had Direct TV I didn’t watch Supernatural as it aired. I would wait and buy the DVD collection when it came out and than spend a week binge watching. I know binge watching is a thing now, but I was doing this before it was coined for some shows. Some shows just watch so much better when you can go directly from one episode to the next and not have to wait a week inbetween. Supernatural was always one of these shows for me.
So when Season 8 came out I bought it. Somehow it was put on the shelf and I never got around to watching it. Season 9 comes out and I do the same thing. I don’t think Season 10 has come out yet, if it has I haven’t bought it yet. I was trolling Netflix the other day for something to watch and realized I was way behind on my Supernatural viewing. So I’ve started watching Season 8. I have a lot of binge watching now, three Seasons to catch up on.
The good news is that I’m really enjoying this season of Supernatural.
