Movable Type 3.2

Part of me wants to demand to know why none of you ever told me Supernatural was so good, but I suppose that wouldn't be entirely fair. I mean, some of you did, and the reason I started watching in the first place was because of how much people I follow on Twitter, especially Vampire Diaries fans, seemed to like it.
But still! It was way better than I'd expected! I watched the first four episodes of season one over the weekend, and I'm already completely addicted and hoping to catch up by the time the new season starts in September. I'm something of a Jared Padalecki fan from Gilmore Girls days, but I don't think I'd really seen Jensen Ackles in anything before. They're both great, and quite attractive, and I'm told that their chemistry, already quite good in these early episodes, only gets better as the show progresses. They have some of the same snarky-but-secretly-loving brotherly banter as the Salvatore boys in The Vampire Diaries or Alan and Nick in Sarah Rees Brennan's books, and I love it.
The episodes I've seen so far more or less follow the "monster of the week" format, and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens when the show gets into heavier story arcs. From bits and pieces I've heard over the years, it sounds like they'll be going some interesting places with religion and mythology, and I always love that. But really, as long as the Winchesters are driving around wearing lots of flannel and denim and being quippy and adorable, I'll be happy.
