There is a grand irony in this world. The Space Pirate Queen and Gizzy B are the obsessed Supernatural fans. I am not. Now, don’t get me wrong! I thought it was ok, and yes, they are hot. But, I don’t know, I didn’t make it past season 2.
So when I, of all people, got offered a chance to review the book Rite of Passage, I had a good old giggle at SPQ.
It takes place during Season 7, so I’m a little bit out of step with what the heck is going on, therefore I’m putting in a SPOILERS warning here, because I have NO idea what is or isn’t common knowledge the fans. You have been warned.
A few years ago a friend of mine told me about a show they had seen on BBC America about a vampire, werewolf, and ghost living together. I remember they said to me, “I think it’s called Being Human.Â You should check it out, it’s right up your alley.”
Needless to say I was all over that like stink on, well, something very stinky and after watching the first episode I was hooked. It’s everything I love about the supernatural genre combined with wit, charm, and hilarity. The show is now on its fourth series and I am happy to say is just as wonderful as ever. If you have never watched BBC’s Being Human, then let me enlighten you as to why it is kind of amazing.
1). IT’S REFRESHING AND ORIGINAL.Â These days we are bombarded with stories about vampires and werewolves. Every other new film or show is jumping on the supernatural bandwagon, which I wouldn’t mind so much if the stories weren’t so derivative of each other. Being HumanÂ thankfully does not fall into this category. The main characters are unique and endearing, and they stand apart from the stereotypical depictions that occur with supernatural creatures.
In this episode, we have two new guest hosts: Crystal and Lauren! Since the Space Pirate Queen and Fortune Cookie felt lonely without Gizzy B. We get to know our guests and ramble on about the usual things. Like Transformers, Supernatural, creepy, immortal babies from Twilight, and Edward munching on Bella’s leg like it’s chicken.
“Season Seven, Time for a Wedding!” is officially the worst Supernatural episode to ever air.
Yes, even worse than “Swap Meat” (5.12).
It’s unfortunate that my first Supernatural episode review for DefectiveGeeks happens to be a negative one. The truth is, season seven has been amazing so far. I had dismal expectations after the trainwreck of season six, but the premiere knocked me off my feet and pretty much every episode following that has been great. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve watched “Hello, Cruel World” (7.02), and the continuity has been making me so incredibly happy. The show finally has a sense of history again, with all its references to early seasons.
I had already been bracing myself for another cringe-worthy foray into ~meta~ (sarcastic tildes required) when the title of the episode was released. “Season Seven, Time for a Wedding!” — I could practically hear the writers high-fiving themselves from here.
But while all the other ~meta~ episodes have been self-congratulatory, unfunny, awkward, and only mildly insulting, this one went ahead and obliterated any lines left to cross. At best, it was an extremely uncomfortable and ultimately pointless episode; at worst, it was offensive, harmful, and demeaning.
The Lady Defectivegeeks discuss drama on television and covers all kinds of series and genres. Sailor Mizz and Gizzy B (that’s her new name, guys) discuss the new television shows this season such as ‘Once Upon A Time’ and ‘American Horror Story.’ Once again, we establish how much we enjoy boys. Fanfic theatre features ‘Gossip Girl’– don’t judge us.
In honor of the premiere of its seventh season this Friday, Gypsy joins the Space Pirate Queen and Gizzy to discuss all things Supernatural! The Lady Defectivegeeks reveal our obsessive ways– we mean, how much we love the show. Find out how the ladies all started watching the show and their thoughts on the last season. Overall, we just hope for more shirtless Sam in the future. Warning: Fanfic Theatre proves to be most disturbing in this episode.
Just dialing it back a little and wrapping up more San Diego Comic Con 2011 blogs here. I guess I didn’t write about attending the SupernaturalÂ roomÂ for the LA Weekly website. By whatever miracle I managed to drag myself out of bed early that Sunday morning and made it in time to theÂ press room at 9:30am.
In case you guys didn’t realize this yet– I’m a big ol’ Supernatural fangirl. Not in the scary way (I don’t think) but in the I LOVE THIS SHOW SO F***ING MUCH IT’S THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER IN MY LIFE kind of way. Well. I suppose that could be the ‘scary way’ too. Uh… yeah. Moving on.
My point is it was kind of a blessing that I was too exhausted by Sunday to freak out because normal me would have been crying in a corner from nervousness. Which almost happened the last two times we went to the Salute to Supernatural conventions. (See Supernatural Vancouver Con and Supernatural in LA, Day 2 posts).
