This week we bring you a Very Special Fourth of July post in our weekly Summer Series 2015 (posted on the 3rd of July, because that’s when the Federal holiday is “observed” [i.e., takes the day off] this year.)
Last weekend I was watching the Home Shopping Network, as is my wont. One of the items they were selling was the Roku 3. The host (one of my favorites) talked about how much she loves hers. In extolling the virtues of being able to stream Netflix, she said she and her daughter had just discovered and were binge-watching a show called Supernatural. She then gushed “It stars two of the best-looking guys ever!”
And to think, that’s the reason I didn’t watch Supernatural at first. In case you’ve never heard the story, when I saw the advertisements for Supernatural, I figured it was one of those shows aimed at teens and 20-somethings. (It is, or was. But that’s not the point.) The actors were just too pretty to be any good. Right?
Yet, for some reason, one Thursday night I had the tv tuned to the WB. (I think it was because a friend had mentioned she liked Smallville so I decided to check it out.) Apparently I was too lazy to change the channel and thus watched the ensuing show. The episode was “Something Wicked,” and you know what? Turns out those pretty boys can actually act!
To this day, “Something Wicked” remains one of my favorites. 🙂
