    They aren’t going to resolve all of that next Wednesday. Carver said S8 sets up two more seasons worth of storylines, so we’ll get a few answers and be left with many questions. I didn’t hate Gamble’s seasons but I’m really glad to see the SPN showrunner planning ahead again.

    These people trashing season 4 of Supernatural have got worms in their brains. Seasons 2-5 were Emmy worthy in terms of writing and acting. This season has been better than season 7 by a league, but its still nowhere near Supernatural’s glory days. However, I’m still enjoying the story and the weekly hunting and killing episodes. The writers must see the earlier seasons to see how standalone episodes and mythology is created with true gravitas though. Kripke has created one of the best shows of all-time on the television landscape. Carver is competent, but he should get more competent people around him to write the show.

    “1.0 is a great rating? Especially as Supernatural is up against absolutely nothing.”

    Are you high or something? Supernatural has to compete with Modern Family and Criminal Minds which get high ratings and L&O which is a solid player every week. Arrow is the one with an easy spot with only a fading American Idol to compete against (Voice only came recently to wednesdays).

  • POIFanatic

    1.0 is a great rating since it ties with the number 1 show on the network it airs, Martine. Perspective. Get some.

    I can’t get the people who think criminal minds is fabulous.
    It used to be interesting but recently it’s just boring.
    There is no pofile or reasoning anymore.
