So by now you all know that I’m a wee bit behind on some pop-culture. Let’s call it the mom-syndrome. (Or at least one kind of mom-syndrome. There are many, I am sure. But that’s the subject of another post–and probably another kinda blog.)
These days, thanks to my 13-year-old daughter, I’m all about Sam and Dean. What? You don’t know what Sam and Dean are? Well my friend, here’s Sam and Dean. Now, maybe YOU are already know them. After all, they’ve been on TV for ten very successful seasons with the show SUPERNATURAL. Shhh. I am only on Season Two, so if you know more about them, please no spoilers.
My youngest daughter loves Sam. And I like that because if I had to choose one for my daughter, yes, it would be Sam. And as far as she knows, I’m all about Sam. But seriously, if my fairy godmother came down and told me to choose, I’d probably say, “Both please!” That’s not something I’d share with my daughter. Wink.
Sam is the younger, sweeter, kinder brother who was in college with a full-scholarship when his brother came to ask him for his help to find their demon-hunting father. A very bright young man. He’s not hard to look at either.
These two are fighting off demons, vampires, tricksters, and so many other kinds of supernatural creatures. But I’ve seen TV shows and movies like this that don’t grab me the way this one does. What makes it rock? For me, it’s simple: The relationship between the brothers. Also, the back story and relationship with their Dad and long-gone Mom is compelling. The narrative arc is a long one and it works because of the depth of these relationships. The demon-fighing is fun stuff—but what you feel like sobbing or laughing are the poignant moments between the brothers.
It also helps that they are both…um..HAWT!
