Emily S. Whitten’s Grand SDCC Adventure: Supernatural Edition
If you don’t know what the CW’s Supernatural is by now (as it rolls into its tenth season on October 7 this fall) then I’m not sure we can be friends. Sure, the show is on The Pretty People Network (and hey, no objections to that!), and sure, there have been a few iffy episodes (the racist ghost truck? Yes, I’m looking at you, racist ghost truck), but overall, it’s a really solid show, and definitely more than just a backdrop for pretty faces.
Over the years it’s grown from a fun, monster-of-the-week quest show to an epic battle between the forces of good and evil – which keep on switching sides, because hey, why make things simple? And most of it is founded in urban legend, folklore, mythology, and religious texts. It’s a show that’s mashed up every weird or faith-based thing that people may not have seen with their own eyes but still believe into one universal lore and plopped the whole thing into the laps of two brothers driving all over America in a classic car trying to save the world – and somehow, it totally works. Not only does it work, but it also acknowledges that a show like that can totally jump the shark, and then avoids doing so by straight-up referencing its fans and doing episodes called “Jump the Shark” with a great tongue-in-cheek sense of humor. I love it. Seriously, I love this show.
So I’m stoked that it’s made it through nine seasons and is still going strong; and even more stoked that I got to sit down with the cast and crew while at SDCC and chat about season ten! And now you can be stoked, too, because you can check out the interviews below!

And until next time, stay away from the monsters under the bed, and Servo Lectio!
