Why yes, I am a babblelonian.

Think we're going to get a full season 14? I think that 300 eps are only halfway through a 14th season. I'd do the math but I don't want to. I'm not sure what's going on with this season...it feels kind of endsville, but on the other hand, there's all this stuff going on that I assume is going to tie into the spinoff. Casting this season is...interesting. People I want to see haven't shown up and people I'm not all that invested in have. Personal opinion, of course--I'm always surprised at how out of step I am with the rest of fandom. :)

Last night's ep was pretty good, I thought. That particular writer whose name I'll eventually look up with the intention of editing this post to insert (but won't because of lazy) is good with me. She seems to like the boys--at least gets that they're more than hunting partners and unhealthily co-dependent, they actually *like* each other. The mild flirtation with Smash(...? is that right?) was cute. Kind of sweet and non-skeevey to me. It was nice to see Dean so pleased over such a small thing as the nostalgic energy drink. (who hasn't been there, right?). I think the boys worked together well, and I was sad that they killed all the demons right away. I wouldn't have minded another case like this with those guys further down the line. Those types of stories are fun to me, but I almost always like the filler eps.

Does my weird look big to you? :D :D :D

Nope. Looks about the same size as mine.

I get the same sense of dealing with some loose ends. I don't know if we'll get a full S14, either, but I guess they're targeting 300 eps. And I'm with you on wanting to give them a list of characters I'd like to say g'bye to, as long as we're touching back on those who've gone on.

Ah, good! :)

It's not a bad slide to the end, if that's what's going on. I'm on board with where they're going so far--except that Lucifer thing, I can't tell you how much I hate it, in terms of characters that I'd have no problem never seeing again. It's a shame, because I really do like Mark, and do enjoy the way he plays Lucifer. It's just...he should be *gone*. He definitely should not be any kind of partner to the Winchesters.

Your weird looks as big as my weird, which is to say: PERFECT!

(The writer's name is Meredith Glynn. She's been my favorite this year, hands down!)
Dec. 1st, 2017 09:14 pm (UTC)

Ah! She's very good! I really enjoy her take on things.

I'm trying hard to be invested in this season, but...just can't. :'( I would live for there to be a full season, if the quality is there. Otherwise, 300 episodes seems like a great place to call it.

Oh, I'm so sorry that it's not capturing you! There are plenty of eps that I like only for bits and pieces, but I'm actually finding this season to be pretty entertaining.

My hopes for next season? A shortened version, maybe a series of 2 hour shows. But they'd have to pick the best writers because some of these writers are terrible. Considering who the terrible ones are, and who runs the show, I wouldn't hold out much hope. Meredith Glynn is great, but you have to have been fan of Sera Gambles in order to like her, imo. :D

I have no knowledge about seasons and won't even look. I am happy to just have my boys!

And yes! Dean's little moment of glee was like his rhapsodizing over being in Tombstone. I like that they haven't forgotten Dean can be a giant nerd.

It was a pretty good ep, yes, but i was *really* put off by the fucking weird music. W TH.
Dec. 2nd, 2017 01:56 am (UTC)
Really? I have to rewatch, I don't even remember the music!

It was just too weird, for me. I miss the classic stuff - seems they're not putting their budget toward that so much anymore.
Dec. 3rd, 2017 05:28 am (UTC)
Well, TPTB at the CW have said they're willing to keep making the Show as long as the ratings stay up and the guys are willing to keep doing it. The guys have said they'd like to get to 300, but they didn't say, "300 and done." So smart money says if they do Season 14, it'll be a whole season if none of the unions strike.

You think Misha ever thought when he joined up in Season 4 that he'd be shooting his tenth season and looking down the barrel of 11?

Dec. 3rd, 2017 08:22 pm (UTC)
That's true--you make a good point.

I'm sure Misha had no idea he'd do more than one season, let alone 11. I'm sure he never imagined that his character would be so incredibly popular, or that he'd have the herd of ride-or-die fans that he does. I really think a lot of his popularity has to do with his personality--I was so-so about Castiel until I saw Misha in person at his first con--after that, I was very much on board for him.

I don't know that any of the cast, being the OCD i is, will be able to settle for a mid-way through 14 (here's hoping) so I'm shooting for a full season and keeping all my digits crossed!
Dec. 3rd, 2017 08:18 pm (UTC)
I'm more inclined to want a series of movies--I'm hoping that way we get more, lol! But I also know that would probably not fly in syndication, so...as long as we get our 300 eps and a banging ending that doesn't involve death, I'm good! :D
Dec. 4th, 2017 10:30 am (UTC)
They've all said they want at least one movie with the appropriate ratings so they can cuss like real Winchesters ;) As for no death - I so don't see them killing the boys off, it would be the shot heard round the world. The wailing would deafen continents.

The only way I could survive it, is if the next scene was them in heaven, driving Baby into their endless sunset! :)

But I prefer they Bobby-it up in the bunker, safe and sound and with whatever friends they have left. :)

Oh - see, now I have a curtain moment need! DAMN YOU! ;)
Dec. 3rd, 2017 04:49 pm (UTC)
...is there news about season 14 being the last one? I didn't see anything?

Anyway, loved this ep. <3
Dec. 3rd, 2017 08:16 pm (UTC)
No, not at all. Just some con talk from years ago, when Jensen, I think, mentioned the idea, and the recent casting news that I'm not going to mention because I don't want to spoil anyone--though at this point, that's probably hard to do, lol!

It was a good ep! Any time they work together like that, I love it! :)
Dec. 5th, 2017 12:47 pm (UTC)
I'm a fan of this writer too, and I really enjoyed it! I was sad to say goodbye to Bart, but I loved all the humour and scenes between the brothers just working together and being concerned once they were separated. It's the small things that I enjoy.

I wonder that too. It feels like we're hearing for a 14th season (a full one, I would think), but I don't know if they're planning on it being the last one. I'm not really sure where my feeling lie on this one; I love having the boys on my screen in new eps, I love my fandom life, but I know it's not quite what it once was. I guess I'm just torn.

Yes! So true!

I'm going to be here if there's a 14th season, but it's true that fandom life is not what it once was. I miss a lot of the interaction we used to have. But time and tide and fandom drift wait for no person. :D I know that there is no other fandom for me, though, and I'll miss it when it's gone.

WAh! I've gone all maudlin! More coffee needed!! :)
