badasses R us

usually even something as devoid of spiritual activity as Ghosthunters is enough to threaten my bladder control with terror and make me stay up for hours later watching reruns of Spongebob to clear my mind before bed.

enter my unreasonable addiction to the show Supernatural.  here's how my mom explains it: "Aha. I see Reason 1 and Reason 2 why you watch this show."

see the reasons?

as it happens, what time these two brothers don't spend fighting evil or looking luscious, they spend ARGUING.  they have to have the SAME EXACT ARGUMENT at least once every episode.  in season one, the argument went something like this:

dean: *gets a shotgun out of the trunk* let's go kill this dead thing.
sam: why? i want to go to school! *whine*
dean: *gets out the colt revolver* because dad said so. when dad says kill, we KILL!
sam: how do you know what he says?  all you have is his dumb journal.
dean: *gets out a taser* and my 80s mullet rock.
sam: *pouts* my girlfriend's dead.
dean: *gets out an axe* and yet you live like a monk. now do as i say. i'm your big brother.
sam: but you're shorter than me.
dean: *gets out some gasoline* and way hotter. now get to killing.  i'm sick of looking out for your ungrateful ass.
sam: okay. but only because my girlfriend's dead.

THIS season, it's MUCH more interesting:

dean: *gets a shotgun out of the trunk* let's go kill this dead thing.
sam: not until we talk about what dad said [SPOILER] before he died.
dean: *gets out a semi-automatic* you mean like we talked about it last week?
sam: and the week before.  [MORE SPOILERS] you have to promise to kill me.
dean: *gets out a shovel* it won't come to that.
sam: but i have powers! *whine*
dean: *gets out a sledgehammer* power. just one. miming psychic headaches with exaggerated grimaces of pain.
sam: *mimes a psychic headache with an exaggerated grimace of pain* and to have premonitions that are too late by the time i have them! youre-going-to-get-out-a-machete!
dean: *gets out a machete* too late. also, you're too celibate.
sam: and you're really short.  promise to kill me.
dean: *gets out some rock salt* no. now let's get killing.
sam: *pouts* i'm the reason my girlfriend's dead!

see?  see the reversal of roles??  now SAM wants to obey their father and DEAN DOESN'T??  man, i had no idea that show could be so DEEP!  i was just watching it for the dudes!

this Supernatural for the Newbie is an even better description, if only because it has PICTURES!

    I still think shaggy hair is more handsome. but you know, it wouldnt be quite the same without the arguments. dont you think?

    LOL! You're so funny Erin! Excellent sum-up! I watched my first last half of the show last night, it was kind of interesting, enough to get me to watch it again (even though I fear the selfpee from fear). You're sooo right. Short-haired-older-bro is sooo much hotter than younger-taller-guy. Sorry Matt, the girls out-vote you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    no, it wouldnt. the Argument, as i like to call it, has become a sort of rhythm, a heartbeat if you will, of the show. when it starts, i know i have time to go to the bathroom and to get another beer from the fridge without missing anything. this episode, they had it THREE TIMES!

    yeah, remember him from Dark Angel?? hey, if you're too afraid of the selfpee from fear, we should rent season one and i'll watch it WITH YOU!! i can tell you when NOT to look.
