Anyone watch this? It's filmed here in Vancouver. My best friend is in the movie biz (props dept) and has done a few day calls on this show...

 

What do you guys think of it? I love this show!!

It wasn't until the second season I could get into this show, but I have found quite enjoyable to see how they try to explain folktales. And Dean isn't half bad to watch either. ;)

I love this show! (Yep, Dean is easy on the eyes. ;) ) I'm wondering how the writers' strike is going to affect it. Anyone know? I'm afraid we might have to wait until next year to see how Dean gets out of his contract with the Darkside. :(

There are either 3 or 5 episodes left (as per the Ausiello Report Strike Chart, over at tvguide.com) before they run out of scripts. If negotiations don't come through soon, it'll be a wait to find out what happens.

My friend is in the movie industry and has done a few day calls on this show. From what she has told me there's only a few new episodes left and then I guess there'll be repeats... <sigh>

I absolutely love this programme and the fact that it's got two total honies in it is a definite bonus ;)

 

The episode which was on Sunday night was especially intriguing, 'A Very Supernatural Christmas' in which Sam and Dean investigate an 'evil' Pagan couple who tell them they are Pagan gods and that killing and eating people is their right. It refers apparently to the Anti-Santa (?) Now, I'm a little fuzzy on the whole Santa mythology, am I right in thinking that it was indeed originally a Pagan god of some form? They mentioned a name in the programme but I can't remember what it was.

 

Obviously the whole thing about eating people gives Pagans yet another bad image I guess, but I did like how they made sure everyone knew that Christmas was originally the Pagan Yule and that the Christians hijacked it. Sam actually mentioned that Jesus was supposed to have been born in spring not December - I'm sure the Christians probably complained about that comment.

 

My partner asked me 'is that true?' and I liked the fact that I could say yes!

 

I'm still undecided about which side of the argument to fall with regard to human sacrifice - did it really used to happen or is it just Christian propaganda?

 

So, can anyone elaborate on the original version of 'Santa', I only know bits of info about this.

 

Next weeks episode is entitled Malleus Maleficarum. I didn't want to read the synopsis in case of spoilers, but what do you all think - will it be another attempt at Witch-bashing? Obviously they have to make it interesting so it will be all 'hyped up', but it's making me a bit nervous thinking of how they will potray Witches. So far I don't think Supernatural has really delved into Witchcraft properly from what I can remember. :thinking:

Thank you Leigh, much appreciated. I tried to Google it but I obviously didn't do it correctly as couldn't find much of relevance. :)

No, I haven't seen it yet. Is it really good?
Well, i think so, but i must admit there are times when they seem to get some of their folklore confused.... or maybe thats just me, i'm very easily confused!!!!

Its definitely good entertainment and the actors in it aren't bad looking either.

It did happen; the druids were associated with human sacrifice by the Romans. Whether this was propaganda on the part of the invading Romans, we may never know.

Try these links for some additional information to that provided by Leigh:

 

The Secrets of Santa Claus - which mentions the gods in Supernatural;

The Influence of Fly Agaric on the Iconography of Father Christmas; and

Christmas, Yule and the Sun King.

Fantastic, thanks Ancestral Celt. Will enjoy reading through all those links.

 

As it's the holiday weekend and I don't have to work I'm going to be doing some serious reading in my time off. So many books, so little time :coffee:

I love this show, but I missed that episode. Could the name have been Black Petyr? This was supposed to be a demon shackled and forced to serve Santa or something to that effect. It was a long time ago my grandma told me that story, and I really don't remember too much about it.

I love this show, not only for the hot guys - but that certainly helps!! - but for the dose of supernatural beings and folklore that you get every week, it's an awesome show for me :D

Hi

 

Have just bought the first series boxset on dvd! I love it! I watched the pilot episode on tv but here in the Uk it shown late at night, so i've missed loads of episodes., but now I have them on dvd, its great!

 

But I'm hooked........ A friend called to ask what I was doing that evening... i replied I'm having an early night with two handsome young men!

 

Sam is definately easy on the eye. both boys were in the remakes of my bloody valentine and friday the 13th as well.
