If you've only watched Supernatural season 1 via Netflix streaming, you might not realize what you're missing. Much of the original music wasn't licensed for this release, and was replaced by generic crap. Two glaring examples are in the last episode. At the end of the episode, when the Winchesters are in the Impala, "Bad Moon Rising" is replaced by something pretty awful (but luckily very forgettable). And an even worse crime is the lack of "Carry On Wayward Son." Yes, that's right, The Road So Far doesn't feature its iconic soundtrack. This is wrong. Very wrong. But the good news is, the DVD version seems to have all the awesome original music.
A couple of weeks ago I took the kid to a local music/movie store and while I was waiting for her, I started thinking about this, and about how much I wanted to own season 1 and watch it the way it's supposed to be watched, and about how it really wasn't a good time to be buying myself a frivolous gift. And then I walked by a rack of old CDs that were on sale and kind of idly looked them over, and (I swear to God, I am not making this up) the Santana CD titled Supernatural
was right next to a Kansas CD called On The Other Side.
Which I've never heard of, so I picked it up to check it out, and it's actually a compilation that includes "Carry On Wayward Son." So I said, who am I to ignore a sign from the universe? And I headed over to the DVDs and found season 1 on sale for $19.
Thanks, universe. XD
So I've been rewatching season 1 and damn. Going from 9 to 1? Talk about whiplash. The boys are so young and they actually have hope for the future and Sam is so sweet and innocent and boyish and Dean is so full of life and embracing the job and God help me, he is hot
(I may be a Mostly!Sam!Girl but on a purely shallow level, season 1 belongs to Dean).
I've also been following Mark Watches
as he watches Show from the beginning, and it's so much fun to watch him fall under its spell, and remind me of what I loved about it in the early seasons.
Anyway, I think this calls for a poll. Which may end up becoming a March Madness type of thing!
Which episodes from season 1 do you like to rewatch?
