SPN and a pic of Dorothy and Peter...  
Okay, so I finally gave in and have started to watch Supernatural.

I don't know...

I mean the guys are cute and I do like me some X-Files type TV, but the writing hasn't grabbed me yet. The brothers are good together and this so far is my favorite bit:

Sam: "When I told Dad I was scared of the thing in my closet, he gave me a .45."
Dean: "What was he supposed to do?"
Sam: "I was nine years old. He was supposed to say, "Don't be afraid of the dark!"

Well, I'm only 4 episodes in so I'll see how it goes but I've heard from some other sources that Lost might have been a better route to go...

And look!


I found the Life photo of Dorothy Stratten and Peter Bogdanovich (about a month before her murder).

I love this pic of her. I remember seeing it oh so long ago and just came across it.

She really was beautiful but sadly, had lousy taste in men. To put it mildly.

Well, I'm going against what appears to be popular opinion here to say, it doesn't really get any better. I watched the first two seasons and they were okay but when I've come from a world with The X-Files (for the serious creep/scifi/ghosties) and Buffy (for the cracktastic side of the supernatural) it fell horribly flat. Once the third season rolled around I gave up after the second or third ep. it just was not doin' for me.

But eh, to each their own. I'd say give it a few more eps just to see one way or the other. There were some moments that I really enjoyed - the funny was quite good, but over all? Not so much.

I needed something light to watch. I just don't want to rewatch Buffy again. And yes, nothing can beat the X-Files. Hubby said that Fringe is probably what I want to watch for the X-Files type of show but SPN has grown on just a wee bit. I just wish they fleshed out the episodes a little bit better (maybe 2 shows devoted to one plot like Enterprise did in its last season).

I wish I could be the writer of the show. It needs some better dialogue. I always think they'll make a certain joke here or there and then they don't - and I don't mean a cliche joke - in fact, they do tend to go toward the cliche. :(

BTW, did you catch Law Abiding Citizen? Despite the inplausability of the plot and everything, it was a fun movie I thought and oh yeah...

Gerard NAKED!

I'm glad you're liking it now. It was a total let down for me but like I said before, that's just my thoughts on it and I know it's a much loved series. I'm also operating under the disability of having watched Days of Our Lives back in the day when Jensen was on it and he was such a total loser in it so I just can't look at him without laughing and forget completely about thinking he's hot. All I see is dumbass Eric Brady. LOL.

I diiiiiid. Nekkid Gerard makes Gigi happy in her happy bits ;) And yeah, despite the idiocy of the plot Gerry makes up for it. Hell, I watched Gamer for him. There's nothing I wouldn't do it seems...*g*
