Who do you watch Supernatural with?

Who do you watch Supernatural with?

Is this a meme? Can I start a meme?

I don't actually have anyone in real life. My daughter used to watch it, but she lost interest after season 5 - she likes MOTWs, not long story arcs.

My husband occasionally sits in for part of an episode but he has remained immune to Show's charms so far - for the most part. I don't understand this. He saw the end of Nightshifter. He saw the end of AHBL1. He saw the beginning of Lazarus Rising. These are pivotal moments, people. If Dean digging his way out of his own grave doesn't make you want to watch, then I don't even know what to say.

He said it's not a bad show, but he doesn't understand what I see in it. And no, I did not say "Hello, have you seen those guys?" I said it's funny, it's sad, it's spooky, it's full of awesome pop culture references (it's pretty, oh God it's so pretty), yada yada yada. And he said that's what surprised him, because I typically do not like sad TV/movies. Well, the thing is, I don't like manipulative sad tearjerkers that have no goal other than to make you cry. But Supernatural is not that show.

He also said it's always some beautiful woman wanting to kill the guys. And I said no, sometimes the beautiful woman gets killed. ;-)

But there might be hope for him. We were both home on a weekday not long ago (doesn't normally happen) and I was of course watching Show reruns on TNT while I did housework. In fact, I was (of course) watching them twice, since TNT West shows the same episodes a couple of hours later. So he caught parts of Caged Heat and Appointment in Samara. Enough to know that Sam didn't have his soul, Dean wanted to get Sam's soul back, but everyone kept telling Sam it would kill him or leave him a drooling wreck. So, the husband watched Dean cram Sam's soul back into him and then said, with a sigh, "Okay. Tell me. What happens?"

So maybe he'll become a fan someday!

(Funny, though... he made his comment about beautiful women wanting to kill the guys while I was watching the beginning of Appointment in Samara. And when we saw Dr. Robert's assistant, who is a beautiful woman, he said "So, I guess she's evil." And I'm like, well, no, but you're right, she is going to kill Dean. So yeah, can't argue with that part of his logic.)
