You know, there’s been a lot of bitterness around here lately. I of course am not saying that the arguments aren’t valid, but you know what, I need some cheer today. So, I’m starting another open discussion. It’s time to turn that frown upside down. What about “Supernatural” makes you happy?
 
Here’s my happy thought for today. It’s 3:00, its beautiful outside, and I’m sitting in a freaking cubicle. My humiliating indoor space of confinement where my significance is less than the balls of lint sitting with me. So, I go to my happy place. Two gorgeous men, a beautiful classic car, and the wind blowing through their luscious heads of hair on the open road. Ah…
 
Okay, your turn! You are allowed to post multiple times and any time. Any negative thoughts will be quickly edited. Okay, rant about your cubicle if you want, but it must lead into a happy thought. It’s group therapy.

Dean Winchester against his car, keeping in sight the house of Bobby in "Dead men ...". That stays with me for a long long time.

I love Bacon cheese burgers, classic rock and classic cars. Every episode is a new adventure, its one of the few shows me and my wife can enjoy & watch together.

This really should have been titled 'What About Supernatural DOESN'T Make You Happy' because then my response would have been a lot shorter.

The writing, for one, I think makes the series. Perfect one liners, mixed with brilliant storytelling and great dramatic monologues round the show out perfectly.

Jared and Jensen and the chemisty they have together make the brothers so much more relatable. J2 makes me happy.

The lighting - I know right? I LOVE THE LIGHTING CREW ON THIS SHOW. They know exactly how to accent a scene or a shot to add the extra 'umph'. I find in some scenes the lighting alone brings me to tears.

Sera/Singer episodes :-) Any eppi written by Sera Gamble and directed by Robert Singer makes me happy. I know it will be perfect. Bar that, A Ben/Phil will be just as awesome (Ghostfacers, anyone?)

But, most importantly, What makes me happy about Supernatural, is the people I have found because of the show. My best friends in the world (literally, around the world) are people I met through fan sites and Facebook Groups related to the show. I Love my WinSisters more than life itself. I know when I'm having a bad day (be it show-related or otherwise) I can find at least one of them online and we can 'talk shop' (as I call it) for hours. Nothing makes me happier than talking about Supernatural.

When Sam gets angry or frustrated and he spreads his arms out wide...

The lighting is amazing

Dean cleaning guns

The car, the love, the BAMF Winchesters...t he comedy mixed in with the drama.

Too many to list! First few of thousands and thousands of reasons:
Dean
Jensen
Sam'n'Dean
Jared'n'Jensen
The creak of the Impala's doors and the rumble of her engine
The fade between lil and big Dean in Something Wicked and lil Sam saying 'you want the prize?', the flashbacks in Swan Song, the fireworks scene in Dark Side of the Moon
Sammy saying 'he's the only one who gets to call me that'
Jensen's acting
The episodes The End, Faith, What is and What Should Never Be, the David Caruso impressions and the Pilot
When a line or a conversation strikes a chord in me and shows me something about myself or my life
Sam's smile when Pamela says 'you're invited too Grumpy'
Cas saying 'Uriel's the funniest angel in the galaxy. Ask anyone'.
Dean saying 'but you didn't shoot the deputy'
When a scene or a line resonates so perfectly for the story or the character like Dean comforting his mom in Dark Side of the Moon or Sam saying ‘wait your turn’
The way Sam looks in a suit
Dean trying to politely swallow his mouthful when interviewing Max's mother in Nightmare
Dean with kids
Jared’s joy
‘Tea parties: Is that all there is?’
The O Death sequence in Two Minutes to Midnight
That as amazing as Sam and Dean are, Jensen and Jared are equally amazing if not more so
Supplemented by the psychosis that is Misha, the compassion and mild dodginess that is Jim and the richness of the rest of the Supernatural galaxy
The way Dean kisses the grad student in Tall Tales or Jamie in Monster Movie
That I am falling back in love with Sam too
That Supernatural celebrates the heroic in human beings
That there is a 6th season
Sharing my experience of loving and living this show with intelligent, insightful, fans: this website.

I'm only going to name a few because if I try to list everything I'll be here all night. Here are some things about Supernatural that make me happy: Dean's love affair with food (I think of him whenever I eat a sandwich now), the way Sam and Dean have grown as characters over the course of 5 seasons, Castiel, struggle, redemption, the way the show can make me laugh one moment and break my heart the next, this list could go on and on. Mostly, the fact that I'm part of this amazing fandom for this amazing show. I feel lucky.

# Rlwgsd 2010-07-14 23:43
I really really needed this open discussion today. So i am going to give you a list of my happy things tomorrow,, but here is the most important two. Please hang in there with me and you will understand why:

First Than Eric Kripke came up with such a Kick Ass idea and hung in there with it until someone took a chance on it and it became SUPERNATURAL.

Second: Besides all of the obvious reasons It makes me happy that i love a show about family and the importance of that connection and hanging on to it no matter what even when it can get ugly and you think there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Then oh my god there is and you see it all is right with the world(or at least your family). But what really makes me happy is that the star s of this show are just plain good people who enjoy what they do in making the show and really understand how much joy it gives us as fans. They arent on the cover of magazines being in fights or showing their ass order any of 100 other things. That is why the show makes me happy and i am proud to be totally in love and obsessed wtih this show.

And really i cannot leave with out saying of course

1. the car
2. the music ( i never really listened to classic rock before it was always country but i am a convert as you always need a little rock and roll in your life)
Rlwgsd
# Rlwgsd 2010-07-14 23:45
Oh and the Greatest song in the world:

Carry on my wayward Son

and can anyone tell me (yes i dont know ) why they use that song at the every season
elle
# elle 2010-07-15 00:08
Everything about Supernatural makes me happy. It is my life line when things in the real world are beyond crazy - you can count on Supernatural to (a) make you laugh (b) make you drool (c) put things in perspective - I mean, a bad day at work doesn't seem so terrible after a little death, destruction and demons, does it?
joelsteinlover
# joelsteinlover 2010-07-15 00:59
Jensen's face, Jared's body, Misha's Misha, the Impala, the music.
The fact that I turned my mom onto it and now we have ludicrous Sam (her) vs. Dean (me) bickers.
The fact that I can quote every line in My Bloody Valentine because I've watched it so much.
The fact that I got offended when they didn't use Bad Moon Rising in the last episode of the first season when they were playing it in a marathon on some other channel when before this show I had no idea who CCR was.
Along the same lines, the fact that I watched the pilot of Veronica Mars (the CW's king of cancellation mistakes) and they used Don't Fear the Reaper and I said, "What's a Supernatural song doing in here?"
The image of all the writers sitting in a dank conference room with laptops all turned to scripped.com arguing about the Apocalypse, which is what I think of which is what I think of when someone says "Supernatural writers."
The moments of stunning direction that could make even the least tv- or film-savvy person go "wow."
The fact that I now find a guy with a brother the most attractive thing ever.
How Sam and Dean adore each other.
How Jensen and Jared adore each other.
The fact that the fandom is offended when Supernatural doesn't get a (well-deserved) Emmy nomination when everyone knows the Emmys are crap anyway.
Colin Ford and the inconsistent lil Dean actors.
Thinking that they don't need to have Sam and Dean cleaning guns or packing bags in the background of any scene because we're all staring at their faces in rapture anyway.
Characterization!
And of course, Kripke!
Evelyn
# Evelyn 2010-07-15 02:24
What makes me happy about Supernatural??? :D Hmmmmmm, let me count the ways

Dean Winchester
The Impala or Metallicar - I just love classic cars
Dean Winchester
Classic rock music - this is THE best music out there
Dean Winchester
Underlying theme of the show is family
Dean Winchester
the strong bond and love shared between two brothers and their willingness to sacrifice everything, even their own lives for each other
Dean Winchester
The guns, knives and various weapons
Dean Winchester
The badass fighting scenes and Dean and Sam kicking butt
Dean Winchester
the anticipation of Season 6 - oh the pain of waiting, is it Sept 24 yet?
Dean Winchester
the fact that the show can get you to laugh, cry, smirk, cheer, or be scared - and they do it all in just one episode
Dean Winchester
That even though this is just a TV show and fictional, this show at its core is about real life issues, good vs evil, family, love and they show it all with such humanness, that you could swear they are real
Dean Winchester
The fantastic actors involved with the show, all the guest stars, to Misha, Jim and most importantly Jensen and Jared and their beautiful selves and their willingness to share their wonderful talents with us in such a generous fashion
Dean Winchester
Beautiful men
Dean Winchester
That we have had five wonderful seasons with very few clunker episodes (most series will usually have a really bad season, not Supernatural)
Dean Winchester
All the wonderful behind the scenes people involved that help put this great show together from the crew, directors, writers, producers, and especially KRIPKE!
Lastly, at least for this list - Dean Winchester. I just love him (or couldn't you tell)
:D :D :D :D :D :D

Hi Alice
Great idea, sanity returns around here :D
There are one million and one things that make me happy about Supernatural but I figure there have been more than enough really, really, really long posts around here lately.
I also love everything about the show and that it has brought together a group of kindred spirits in the way it has.
And Dean Winchester Gargling. :D

# Jasminka 2010-07-15 09:19
Inspired by your group therapy idea, Alice :lol:,and by Evelyn’s comment, I thought, I’d borrow some words from Elizabeth Barrett Browning and paraphrase them, as it is by far too hot to really think straight...

How do I love the show? Let me count the ways.
I love its depth, fantastic acting, Jared’s beauty and height,
It reaches my soul, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Courage and Love and Grace.
I love it to the level of everyday’s
Need for smiles, fun, Jensen’s green eyes’ light,
I love its stories, as brothers in the Impala strive for Right;
I love its humanity, so often target for Praise.
I love it with a passion put to use
In writing, discussing, finding new friends.
I love the shallow drool, the joy I’ll never lose
With compassion and support that borders transcends.
Laughs, tears, reminders of my life! And, if God choose,
I shall love this show till my life ends.

This should say it all, as I can’t go into it any further right now. There would be so much to say, but I don’t feel like it at this moment. There are other, more important matters in need of my mind…
Thank you for this happy idea, Alice. This show has made me happy so often, and I think most of all with the human quality it provided – not only in its story, but also in coming here and meeting you and some other dear new friends, becoming a writer in this so talented bunch of authors… It’s an honour, great joy, beloved passion… plus: Carry On My Wayward Son is my mobile’s ringtone…

Love Jas

Reading angry and blatantly misguided comments and opinions online that differ from mine, thereby prompting me to give these unseen yokels the voodoo doll treatment.

Things about Supernatural that makes me happy?. Just EVERYTHING, so I'm just going to write a few thing that right now and everytime I think about them, they take me to my perfectly happy place :D

THE BROTHERLY LOVE
Jared and Jensen
The Impala
Dean calling Sam "Sammy"
Sam's puppy dog eyes
Dean's humor
Castiel's discomfort around society
CARRY ON MY WAYWARD SON
"Because you're my brother, and I still love you. BOOP"

# BagginsDVM 2010-07-15 13:38
Ah, thanks for starting this topic, Alice!
I've got a big goofy grin across my face right now just thinking about Supernatural!

What do I love...Everything!

Dean, Sam, Bobby, Castiel, John, Mary, Gabriel, Ellen & Jo, Pamela, Ash, & all the other characters we've seen over the years

The talent & grace & gorgeousness that is Jensen & Jared

All the supporting cast, especially Jim & Misha, that bring so much to the show

The Impala, with her role as the guys' home, that rumbling purr of her engine, the fact that she shares a birth year with me

The brotherly love & the family angst

The fact that I proudly spread my love of this show to all who listen & have encouraged others to be fans

All the friends I have made both in person & online because of said love for this show

The music (yeah, my cell rings to Carry On Wayward Son too)

There's so much more, but I have to return to work now. That grin's gonna be on my face the rest of the day...

A few things I love about Supernatural. I love most everything about it, so it will be hard to pick and choose.

Dean Winchester

Dean Winchester’s face

Dean Winchester’s body

Dean’s love for his Sammy

Dean’s love for his family

Sam saying “I would die for you”, “you’re my brother and I still love you BOOP!”, “Only HE gets to call me that!”

The brotherly bond

The writing

The directing (especially Kim Manners who is greatly missed)

The lighting (making the brothers so beautiful)

The music

The Kripke creator (thank God for you!)

Bobby (I love you)

Castiel and his misstepping goofiness

Big Daddy Winchester

Mary, mother of Dean

Dean chowing down and thoroughly enjoying it (that means he’s OK)

The teasing and the jokes and brotherly interactions that seem so true

Dean being politically incorrect

Dean’s badassery and snark

Sam’s protectiveness and puppy dog eyes and bitchface

Jensen and Jared being such great friends in real life (love ‘em)

Jensen and Jared not being typical Hollywoodish idiots and getting DUI’s and arrested every week

The gorgeous Impala with the rumbling engine and squeaking doors

The way Dean makes love (so different than you might expect)

Eye of the Tiger

A sixth season

Randal’s posts on this site (always makes me laugh)

Alice’s site which is made of awesome

Oh, this is impossible and could go on forever, while if asked what I don’t love about it would be answered in two sentences. LOL!

Ok, I'm back because I couldn't resist. Total cheese alert. To the tune of "Favorite Things" from the sound of music.

Deep Sammy dimples and Dean in the shower
Tricksters and Facers and brotherly banter
Sam and Dean driving Bon Jovi they sing
These are happy Supernatural things

Shotguns and eating and puppy dog faces
Acting and writing, epic for the ages
Fanbase and Bobby, Cass and his wings
These are happy Supernatural things

Hot brothers hunting creatures like demons
Clothing in layers that’s Winchester fashion
Black Classic Impala, sleek not one ding
These are happy Supernatural things

When the walls creak
When the ghosts shriek
When we’re feeling sad
Simply remember Supernatural things
And then we won’t feel so bad

Classic rock music proving Kripke’s king
These are happy Supernatural things

When the boys fight
When Ruby smiles
When we angst so bad
Simply remember Supernatural things
And then we won’t feel so bad

Thank you, Alice,

This thread is what I need, some happiness about the show!

I love the writers, the directors, the actors, the producers, the set designers, the prop masters, the costumer and makeup artists, the musical scores and the classic rock.

I love the scares, the tears, the laughs, the missteps and the successes. When the show goofs up, at least I know they tried something. When it's successful, it's often because of happy accidents and lessons learned along the way.

I love that Eric Kripke initially had an idea of a reporter driving around following urban legends and the studio said, uh, no; what else you got and on the fly he said, two guys in a car...they're brothers...yeah .

I love that they tried this huge epic storyline and that now that the show has a sixth season Eric said let's let some others with a different and fresher take on the idea take it into its new direction.

I love that Bobby is alive and Castiel is back. I love the spoilers I'm reading...each and every eensy teensy one about what characters are going to populate the new season in some fashion or another.

I love the angels and the demons, the werewolves and vampires, the shapeshifters and the ghosts.

I'm looking forward to more Bobby characterizatio n in Season 6 to build upon what we've already gotten as well as whether or not Cas is a 'sheriff' in heaven or not.

I love that I have four seasons of 'official' DVDs and that in eight weeks I'll have five.

I love that Friday nights at 9:00 p.m. are going to be me and a bowl of popcorn and my TV.

I love that so many are speaking up and loving the show.

Thank you, Alice, for giving love of the show a place to shine!

# ARIS3 2010-07-15 20:20
OK, here's my Supernatural love list:
1. The bromance!!! It's not just a MOTW show, it has a deeper story, the story of Sam and Dean!
2. The sense of humour! I love the funny moments, the funny episodes, I love -and missed- watching Sam and Dean laughing!
*wish:bring back the "bitch-jerk" moments, please!*
3. The beautiful friendship between Jared and Jensen in real life! I think that this is one of the main -if not THE MAIN- factors that the show is so successful! At least as far as I'm concerned, when I discovered how close Jared and Jensen were in real life I loved the show even more!
4. Bobby! I love me some Bobby! :D
5. The Impala, the music (especially when I listen to "Carry On My Wayward Son" I can't think of anything else but Supernatural!) and everything else that has to do with the show! :mrgreen:
Alice

A few more random happy thoughts:


“Easy Tiger”, “You smell like a toilet”

“Sweetheart, I don’t do shorts”, “Must you cheapen the moment?”, “Yeah”
“Saving people, hunting things”

Hell House, Edd and Harry, Ghostfacers, “we’re…†¦ professionals?â €, “I had to pee in a urinal, in front of people!”

Trickster “He didn’t believe in wormholes, so I dropped him in one!” , “He got more ass than a toilet seat!”

Dean and Lucas in “Dead in the Water”

Sam: “Miracle! NOW!!” , Sam obliterating Alistair

Sarah Blake and Sam “Sam, marry that girl!”, Dean pissing off Sarah’s dad with his bad manners, the dusty Impala amidst the snobby squeaky clean cars

The grotty and weird motel rooms

Cas “I found a liquor store and drank it”

Sam holding Ruby while Dean skewered the lying bitch

The clutching each others shirts at the end of season 4

Dean crawling from his grave, the smirk and Busty Asian Beauties, the hug with Bobby, the hug with Sam, Cas arrives, holy water in Dean’s face

Dean wiping the blood from Sam’s face in “Bloody Mary”

“Dude, you fugly!”

Cas and the whoopee cushion “that wasn’t me”, the hairy hand (hee hee!)

Ellen, Jo and Ash

Dean and Cassie making love (I didn’t hate Cassie)

Biggerson’s one millionth customer photo, ice cream brain freeze, “I lost my shoe”, “I’m Batman!”, “Son of a Bitch!!”

Dean and Ben in the park and Ben hugging Dean

SWAN SONG

Maybe more later

Not working in a cubicle, but 24/7 all summer long, with no time for any Supernatural, which makes me very unhappy, but at least I've missed the bitterness around here, sometimes being too busy can be a blessing ;-).

Reading through all your comments I can only agree about what makes me happy about Supernatural!!! It's the whole package - cast and crew and this fandom here. And most of all, how the Winchester tale gives comfort and laughter to my life (despite of the angsty and bloody stuff).
Oh, and I certainly don't mind the view on the most handsome men in the universe :-)

A little ditty about Sam and Dean
Two American bro’s doing the hunting scene.
Neither one ever to be a football star.
Too busy going town to town in a classic car.

Suckin’ back beers and eating at local diners.
Staying at cheap motels with bizarre décor designers.
Getting into crime scenes by using false identities.
Saving people by killing supernatural entities.

Oh yeah they say life goes on
Long after the thrill of hunting is gone
Oh yeah they say life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone

Sitting back to reflect on all the great moments.
The pranks and jokes and even the boys torments.
All the brotherly banter along with Bitch and Jerk.
And Bobby and Cas helping in the detective work.

Oh yeah they say life goes on
Long after the thrill of killing is gone
Oh yeah they say life goes on
Can’t wait for this Hellatus to be gone.

Love the Classic Rock, let it roll.
Gets down into my very soul.
Will hold on to Supernatural as long as I can.
Just can’t get enough of these two handsome men.

A little ditty about Sam and Dean
Two American bro’s doing the hunting scene.

Sorry everyone, couldn’t resist.
What else makes me happy about Supernatural?
I would have to say Everything!

What Makes Me Happy About Supernatural:

1. Finally! A show that can compete with the greats; Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse and Firefly.. (Yes I do believe Joss Whedon is a GOD and has gotten a bad deal every time, because people can't strain themselves to think very much. Maybe Joss should play God! That would rock.. ok enough sidenotes lol.)

2. Writing is spectacular!

3. Jensen, Jensen, Jensen! Cass, Cass, Cass! ;-)

4. Mostly, I just love how even though they go through all of this bad together - they find that they can count on each other! It is a great message.. Even when God has (supposedly) turned his back on them and they keep going.. most would give up but they are truly heroic.

5. No matter how low down or depressing it gets.. they never give up! On each other or humanity..

6. The importance of family - not just Sam & Dean but Bobby and Cass too.. They have all banded together and decided that through thick and thin they will do anything to try and save the innocent people out there.. who don't deserve to die over a giant pissing contest.

7. Lastly, and most important the message of FREE WILL.. even with angels and demons in the picture these guys are fighting for the right to decide for themselves.. who's to say if they will choose right or wrong - the point is that they get to choose!

- This is one thing that bothers me personally about all of the organized religions out there.. people lose their right to choose - for fear of eternal damnation and the church's disapproval

Now I'm not saying that certain things should be overlooked (murder, stealing etc..) I'm just saying that I think God (in the show and in real life) wants us to choose what's right.. I think that is how we save ourselves and I think that is what God wants.. not to force 'goodness' on us, but to bring it out in us.. in even the worst of times.. I think this is why God hasn't intervened yet.. He wants to show the angels what true HUMANITY is..

:D

Hi Julie and Freebird
I’m so glad you liked this, the words seemed to flow so well with this song. Freebird I had taken creative licensing and changed the words from John (Cougar) Mellencamp’s song ‘Jack and Diane’.
