Supernatural

Just watched the first episode and it was alright. My favorite lines being:

“When I told dad I was scared of the thing in my closet, he gave me a .45.”

“Yeah, so?”

“I was nine years old.”

It sure did make me want to play a modern horrorish monster hunting RPG something powerful, though.

EDIT: I was going to do it anyway but yeah, the show pushed me to grab the pre-order of Mortal Coil right the eff now rather than right the eff later.

      Nice, I am looking forward to making it a regular part of my netflix queue, seems like a nice show to watch at the end of a rough day.

      I love it when a season of TV hangs together well.

  1. It’s a pretty hot show. Doesn’t go too deep through the mushy middle part, which I think is its one consistent failing, but the way they contain each season of the show — the “overstructure”, as it were — is top notch, as is the emergent chemistry and “brotherness” between the leads.

  7. Things I want to see in Supernatural

    I want the younger brother to introduce the older brother to an iPod.

    I want to know what kind of car that is, even if they make up the make and model. I want that car to become their Millennium Falcon.

    Flashbacks to childhood training!

    More fraternal shit-talking.

  9. Good show…

    Mostly just nodding my head in agreement with everyone. I really enjoyed the first season, and should really watch the second. They had a refreshing take on a lot of paranormal tropes, fairly competent protagonists, and a cool car. Good stuff.

  13. The first season of Supernatural is my favorite “ghosts and monsters in modern America” TV season. There are a small handful of episodes that hit a level of humanity and understanding of horror that hardly ever happens on TV alone, much less together.

    The following seasons are very uneven. But I’ll wait until you’ve seen em to talk about that.

    (Also, Sarah Shahi — the ghost woman from the first episode — used to date a friend of a friend of mine. She’s even hotter in real life than on the TV.)

  17. I’ve been wanting to play in a Hunter: the Vigil game based on Supernatural ever since this past summer. WoD’s H:tV does a much better Supernatural game than the official Supernatural RPG.

      • Mechanically: It was a larger skill level = larger dice size.
        I found it didn’t scale well – people either failed all the time, or won all the time, with no real sense of drama. Additionally, their hero point system either lets you increase a die size before you roll, or add something (+2? +4? Not sure) after you roll – nobody I was playing with used the increase a die size.

        Conceptually, it felt like they’d converted supernatural to their system, rather than vice versa, if that makes any sense.
