Dreck never dies

According to TV.com Seventh Heaven gets an 11th Season? Seventh freaking Heaven?

You gotta be freaking kidding me. Come on, Aquaman can`t have been THAT bad.

If this isn`t like a Smile Time-deal, I don`t know what is.

It boggles. the. mind. It really does. WTF, CW??

I am just trying to trust the various tidbits floating around that SPN is a lock. I still wonder, though, since someone at TWoP brought it up, what this means for the CW as a network. On the one hand, Seventh Heaven must bring in a large conservative viewing audience, which may make good dollar sense. On the other hand... isn't that show dead? *sigh* What sort of network is it going to be? *frets*

Me too. In that regard I`m more relieved that Aquaman seems to have sunk already because it would have been a good fit with SV. Now they`re not gonna break the SV/SPN block.
Looks grim for OTH or Everwood however. I don`t watch the shows, but they can`t be as bad as Seventh Heaven. They just can`t. This is the most infuriating, self-rightous, bible-thumping show I`ve ever seen. And as far removed from true Christian values like say tolerance! as possible.

Good point. I`ll gues we`ll have to wait and see how all the shows are doing next fall on a "large" network. I mean they all need to bring in a different kind of rating, won`t they. Can`t imagine 5 Mio will cut it anymore.
I`d love for this pile of crap named Seventh Heaven to tank beyond all imagination while all the land discovers the hotness that is the Winchester brothers.

It seems like a pretty solid deal for them, dollar-wise and critically. I'm not crazy about SV, but many people seem to adore it. So long as it remains a good lead-in for SPN, and SPN retains a good percentage of its audience, they probably won't mess with sucess, right? *hopes*

And as far removed from true Christian values like say tolerance! as possible.

Oh yes. It's more in tune with Christian culture than Christian values. That seems to be a trend with conservative shows... and Christians in general. *sigh* I know; I'm a preacher's daughter who's lost quite a bit of respect for it all.

Amen. I just don't know, though. They've got some work to do in the writing and general direction of the show. The two leads can pull it off, certainly Ackles, and the directors are top-notch, but the writing can't meander around for much longer. A lot can be forgiven in the first season, but they've got to prove themselves, if given the chance. Solid answers to build future questions on, for starters. We didn't get anything in S1, despite what Kripke promised. :/

It`s certainly a better fit than GG thematically. I actually only got into SV because of Jensen, meaning I watched the 4th season first and then caught up on Seasons 1-3 and this show is beyond frustrating to me, because they actually had potential. The Clex-chemistry was great and it could have been this tragic tale of destiny and broken friendship. But alas, everything was sacrificed on the altar of Lana Lang, the biggest MarySue ever created. Blech.

My number one priority will always be characterization (which means shows like CSI could never really pull me in because they have no real characters to begin with), which SPN really managed nicely until now, but that shouldn`t be an excuse for mediocre writing. You can certainly have both.

I hope Kripke doesn`t think he can just work himself through some urban legends, throw in a chippie of the week, mix it with a nice anvil or two and it will carry the show forever.
The episodes as a whole are not really scary, at least not to me or anyone I know of. The plots are not terribly inventive and new. So definitely, the writing needs to be tighter.

Let the boys establish a network of helpers like their Dad did (just without the falling out part *g*), let them meet other hunters, let them go through some emotional arcs for a couple of episodes and so on. Gives a little arc-y feeling.

If you wanna drag out the Celine Demon plot, a least give us some answers along the way or maybe make the CD part of some larger menace.

And as a personal plea, please stop it with the clunky expositionary dialogue: "Hey, what are we doing here again?" "You really think this is our kind of gig?", yo-yoing between the brothers. Earn your paychecks, writers.

And no more racially motivated killer trucks. Ever!!!
