Just a heads-up here but I'm thinking of dropping Supernatural from my viewing list right now. It just hasn't been much fun this Season and that last episode sucked the remaining shred of energy out of me. Unless, the Finale turns it around - which I find doubtful - it just doesn't seem worth it.

I may watch clips, like I did when Jensen was on Dawson's Creek or Smallville to get my fix of him - I just can't quit that guy - but likely not the whole episodes anymore. And it's possible there will be reactions for those if they're good.

Fannishly, I don't yet know what that will mean as far as this lj is concerned. I mean, before my job from hell took over, it has been pretty much exclusively SPN. But I'm not ready to give up fanfic and as for writing it, I figure I can still do RPS since that doesn't have much to do with show.

It's doubtful I jump right into another fandom and will suddenly be all squeeing about show X. Not usually how I operate. I'm very monogamous. :)

But I'm thinking of doing a filter for non-SPN related stuff so if you want on that, give me a holler.

And yeah, expect for a great, marvelous comeback if I happen to like the Season Finale. :D But again, I'm a realist at this point.

I'm right with you. The last epi pretty much ruined any hope I was holding onto that I'd enjoy the ending if I could just get to it, and now I'm not even sure I want to see the ending.

It was good for awhile, though. *smoosh*

Whatever you wanna do with this journal, I'll still be reading.

Ditto. In a way, it's too bad there is a Season 6 because on one hand, I tend to watch Jensen in anything. On the other hand, he would have been free to find something else which maybe would have been more to my liking. Oh well.

Whatever you wanna do with this journal, I'll still be reading.

Thank you. *hugs* There are quite a few of other shows I'm watching but none really all that fannishly. Maybe aside from Merlin.

i still be watching for Jensen but i'm so over the mytharc and the story in general. every mention of 'the bond' makes me sick.

Yeah, it's unfortunate that I can't quit him. Otherwise, this would be a rather easy decision at this point.

You can put me on any filter hon :)

Like you know, I dropped SPN a while ago. Sometimes I think of picking it up again, until I read the recent episode short summary and am magically cured. (Can Sam die? Finally?)

Aww. *hugs*

Yeah, last episode = immense disappointment. And usually, I'm not so gullible that shows can sucker-punch me that much but they sure fooled me this time. :(

I stopped watching Supernatural over a year ago, so if you have any type of filter, I want to be on it. :-) I don't necessarily think a filter is necessary (if it's because you want to spare readers of your flist), but however you want to do things is fine with me.

I'm not sure about filtering. Mainly, if the Finale sucks as badly as I expect it now, I don't think I can take any squee about it so I thought maybe removing all SPN-related stuff for at least a couple of days is the way to go. I'm terribly complicated, I know. :)

Yeah, I'm done with Supernatural, too. I hope the midseason rumor about next year is true, so Jensen will only be tied up with this for another half-year, and can get a jump on doing something else that I might actually enjoy. :)

I'm not sure mid-Season will actually mean a scaled-back episode order. Networks have been trying out this thing with starting later and runnings shows without any reruns, and as the CW is usually in the crapper even more with re-runs, they might do so as well. Besides, it has been renewed for a whole 22 already.

Which of course can be reduced again. I have this suspicion right now that there are some demands being made behind the scenes to actually reduce the episode order. *cough cough*

Not that I'd have a problem with it.

and can get a jump on doing something else that I might actually enjoy. :)

Hells to the yes. I'd love to see him take the lead in a great show. So, I could enjoy him 22 weeks of the year, not worry about being usurped or sidelined and the wirting be good.
