SUPERNATURAL’s inclusion on my list of shows that I hate-watch is bittersweet. I used to love this show and it had a perfect ending in Season 5, it had actually only been planned for a 5 season arc by the show’s creator, and if it had gone out on that high note I would have fond memories of it till the day I died. But nope, the network had to have more because ratings were good so even though creator Eric Kripke left at the end of Season 5, SUPERNATURAL kept chugging on for another 5 seasons (this upcoming season will be Season 10) of pretty much total mediocrity. Sure there are the occasional few episodes a season, mostly ones not having anything to do with the over-arching storyline of that season, that are enjoyably reminiscent of the show’s glory days. But on the whole, SUPERNATURAL has just been regurgitating the same old crap year after year: Sam and Dean have a disagreement, they both get emo, one keeps a secret from the other, angels do something awful, the boys hug it out and save the day. Wash, rinse, repeat. It also doesn’t help that the revolving door of showrunners have seen fit to kill off virtually every interesting supporting character except for Castiel. I will curse SUPERNATURAL to the bowels of hell for eternity over the unnecessary deaths of Bobby and Rufus. Rat bastards.
