While I don't spend a lot of time online rhapsodizing about how wonderful I think the cast of the CW's show "Supernatural" is, this in no way means I'm not thinking it. Often.

Last night was the finale for the 3rd season. It had its share of gore. It had demons doing demonic things. It had blood, death and, lest we forget, hell hounds. Normally, I'm not so into stuff like this, but I've seen every single episode of this series for three seasons now--horror themes or no.


Because of the Winchester boys and their fabulous relationship. It's complex, frequently funny, intense--and I'm in constant awe that the writers crafted such well-drawn characters and that the actors (the talented Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) manage to balance the show's action in the midst of these wild paranormal plots with a dialogue that's intimate enough to make me believe they're really brothers.

Well, and there's the '80s music Jensen's character likes to blast from his car stereo. I like that, too...

I have got to watch this show... I think I saw part of one episode in the first season and decided it wasn't my thing. But clearly with all these writers who love it, I need to try it. If BSG is Sci Fi for people who don't like sci fi, and FNL is a sports show for people who don't like sports... Sounds like Supernatural is the supernatural series for people not that into the supernatural. :-)
