Relax!
Man I need cheering up. I have no idea why I am feeling so sad and pissed off with everything but I am. I should be extra excited as it was my last day of work today and I am starting a two week holiday but I'm feeling kinda yuk.

Also, I am finding it really hard to remain spoiler free. I want to see all those promos and previews and particularly the chats with Carver but I also want to remain oblivious to what's going to happen. Ack.. but I want to be prepared!! But I also want to get excited about things that might be coming that will make me excited! Arghhh.... *head explodes*


I am REALLY scared that I am going to be completely disappointed and it's making me stressed. (And yeah.. I know...it's only a TV show yada yada, but it's MY TV show and I want them to do well and I want to LOVE IT! I want to squee and be excited and see the light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been much of S8).

But I love you show and I'm on your side! You can do it!


(I was going to rant about world events but this might not be the place. I will say YAY New Zealand! Let's hope Australia can follow your lead one day - and the rest of the world. Though if a simple gun law amendment can't be passed I don't hold out much hope...).

I always stay spoiler free for the final few episodes. I like to be surprised. :) I have to say, though, that my trust in the writers dwindled down to nothing over the course of S8, and I can't even get excited about spoilers anymore, because I instantly assume that they will just mess it up anyway. The worst thing is that I don't think things will improve in S9. There are so many fundamental problems with the writing this season - mainly a profound disregard for past canon, continuity and characterisation - that I lost all hope for a positive change. /sigh I am sorry to whine all over your journal. Maybe the finale will surprise me and rekindle my excitement for S9! Stranger things have happened!

Yeah - it's pretty much how I'm feeling. I desperately want to get excited and I keep thinking that maybe if I check out some spoilers I will find something to get excited about. But I also want the thrill of finding it out when I watch it.

I remember at the beginning of the season looking on the bright side of the spoilers about Sam and thinking there's no way they can do that so I can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves. But when it turned out that they could and did do that and their sleeves were well and truly empty I started to lose hope.

I truly think they will have to do something really clever and interesting to keep fans excited for S9... and they just might.

BUT...the MoL has actually given me some hope and if nothing else the batcave has been such a highlight for me that that will make S8 worth it.

I think until I hear (or see!) otherwise I remain positive and hopeful...

I hope. ;)

Stay spoiler free. Nothing Carver is saying right now will make you feel better, trust me lol. Maybe it'll translate better on TV
18th-Apr-2013 11:48 am (UTC)
Whaaaaaaaaa that's what I was afraid of!

Now I really wanna check.... /o\

(Wow love that icon...*drool* Everything is suddenly better...*g*)
18th-Apr-2013 11:46 am (UTC)
you must be really strong willed if you can stay away from spoilers. I must say the next week teasers made me squee and swoon. I am ready for the multiple orgasms next Thursday!:)
18th-Apr-2013 11:58 am (UTC)
Ha! I'm not feeling particularly strong willed at the moment I have to say...

Though yay! I'm glad the next one is happy making. (I am a little spoiled for the next one. I accidentally saw a spoiler for the guest. And I know who the right is - both equal = YAY in my books!).

*smish* I seem to be one of the few who liked Carver's interview! It was all about Sam ;D

Anyway next week's episode is a Robbie one which looks all sorts of awesome.

18th-Apr-2013 12:20 pm (UTC)
Yay Sam! (ack.. but is it "good" Sam news...?!) And J you love everything! I wish I had your continual positive outlook on it all. I try...;)

And Robbie is my fav so YAY! I know we'll be in for a solid ep with him behind the pen...<33

18th-Apr-2013 12:23 pm (UTC)
I just want the season to be over, and to be at a point where I can decide whether I am completely walking away or giving s9 a try.

Spoiler or canon, I've turned that crucial corner where it's not excited anticipation of what new thing they may be giving us but sinking dread of what they are going to take away next.
18th-Apr-2013 12:41 pm (UTC)
Um, sorry, I realize that that wasn't exactly cheering. If it helps, I think it's as much that I am feeling so down about Spn because I'm depressed as hell generally as that I'm depressed because I'm down on Spn. And at least if many of us are nervous and full of dread there's way more possibility of being wowed by a positive surprise! If we were going in absolutely certain that everything would be awesome!!!! then even something really good might be a letdown.
18th-Apr-2013 12:26 pm (UTC)
I know exactly how you feel! I am so afraid that the excitement over spoilers will turn to disappoint over how the spoiler plays out.

Sigh.

I shouldn't be so invested in a TV show.

And the season shouldn't have taken so many bum turns.
18th-Apr-2013 01:05 pm (UTC)
I shouldn't be so invested in a TV show.

ha! I wonder how many times fans have said that to themselves...TOO MANY I suspect!

I'm sorry you're not happy.

I've picked up a few ... general spoilers about the end of the season, because I've decided I'll feel better about it all if I have some sense of where they think they're going with it. But I've been averting my eyes every time I get a glimpse of a Carver interview, because in the past seeing his views has given me an awful case of 'someone is wrong on the internet' syndrome ... and since I can't exactly argue with the showrunner I just sit there trying to lift my jaw off the floor and it's exhausting. :)

On the plus side, the next one seems to have positive stuff going for it, so there shouldn't be any disasters in the immediate future.

Let's hope Australia can follow your lead one day - and the rest of the world.

And then I saw a bunch of delightfully bigoted comments on ninemsn (I really have no idea why I did that) and now I pretty much despair for humanity. I do not comprehend why this is even controversial at this point.
18th-Apr-2013 02:21 pm (UTC)
I am happier now that I've been chatting SPN (I'm so easy...)

The little bit I know about the next ep is making me happy. :)

I keep wanting to click on those pesky spoilers but so far I have been strong. I hope it can continue!

And then I saw a bunch of delightfully bigoted comments on ninemsn

Oh man...I'm glad I didn't see those. I just don't get people sometimes. Well, a lot of the time actually. At least NZ shows that pollies CAN do the right and sensible thing.

Nooooo, releeeeease those expectations, little one!

Be zen, be a leaf on the wind and just let it happen. Personally? I'm completely spoiled and I'm not twisted up about it. But then nor do I give the teasers from Carver much weight; he likes to bait fans into worrying, thinking that that will pull them to the show like moths to a flame. The things he lets drip are deliberately obtuse.

I'm actually looking forward to these final episodes.

My biggest lament is how sloppy Carver is being with canon. Shit, even canon he effin' established! I know he's show-run before, but not on a vehicle with so much established canon. Maybe he should swap shows with his wife; I've heard she's done great things with Being Human, the American version.

Anywho, don't despair yet! I'm firmly convinced if you only look for bad shit, that's what you'll find. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. I'm looking for (and don't worry, these are NOT spoilers, just my hopes): gloriously fey Sam (I loves me some tragic hero), snarkily stalwart Dean, charming Charlie and a side-dish of Cas eating burgers. \0/!

(This annoyingly cheerful aside brought to you by Quickreaver & Sons, where rose-colored glasses are free with every chicken dinner.)

PS: EDITED FOR POTENTIALLY LETTING STUFF OUT OF THE BAG!! Don't read previous versions of my stupid reply if you want to remain unspoiled! (I'm such a dork.)

ha! *glomps* on you and your positive note!

Thanks darling!! <333

I did used to think that Carver deliberately said stuff to have us worrying and worked up but after everything he said at the beginning of the season actually happened I wonder if he's actually that cunning. I mean, they have to be obtuse I suppose because they want to keep any big reveals a real surprise - that's why I'm tempted to check out the spoilers because I figure they can't give the big stuff away. :))

I am actually mostly positive about things to come. As long as they keep the bros together and on the same page I'll be happy. I am sure he won't take them back to their early troubles. *hopes*

Some tragic hero Sam would make be very happy!

Ha! And the stuff you let out (because yeah, I had to peek...) was some stuff I'd seen already. I don't know how any of that will play out so I still consider myself unspoiled for that...;)

YAY! Quickreaver & Sons! Thank you for your positive injection. <33333333

I SEND MY LOVE <3 <3 <3 <3 I am so grateful that SPN has caused us to become friends.

I don't know if this will cheer you or not but part one of your fan film was sent to betas today. :D

I am so grateful that SPN has caused us to become friends.

OMG DITTO! <333

PART ONE AWAY! woot! I don't think you'll know yourself once it's all over...;) Can't wait to see it all put together...;)

(Ooh..and curious about the sfx you put on the blood splatter..;D)
*hugs*

Don't look! Wait another week!

I'd be interested to read a good analysis of why NZ seems to be more progressive than Australia. (In some areas anyway – I don't know enough about it to make sweeping claims!)
18th-Apr-2013 02:40 pm (UTC)
Ok! I will wait! (or try not to look at all!)

NZ has always seemed more progressive than Australia (and other parts of the world). Maybe due to the smaller population?

18th-Apr-2013 02:22 pm (UTC)
I hear you..this endless winter is totally messing with my head. Another winter storm warning for tomorrow. It has been weeks since we've had any real sunshine. Then there is the news...goes back to bed.

I think I got spoiled on tumblr and it has me nervous because the potential to screw it up is massive. It's all going to depend on who wrote the last couple of episodes. That has been so up and down this season, I don't know what to think. Fingers crossed. They hired Jenny Klein on as a part of the writing staff so who knows.

Looking at the bright side, this is the season that brought us this.



And this.



There's good fandom stuff around the corner with Bigbang and summergen. The hiatus conventions are about to get rolling. Danneel and Jensen are going to be parents. Thomas will be talking soon. Somebody is putting the gag reel together. We'll get through this...we will.
18th-Apr-2013 02:44 pm (UTC)
All the happy making stuff!! GAG REEL! My fav thing!

And Jensen being a daddy will be the CUTEST THING EVER!

And Sam has indeed being very delicious this season. I totally approve of his lovely flowing locks.

The season has been up and down - at least there have been ups! :DD

I'll be clinging on no matter what. Well, that's my hope anyway.. :)

Thanks bb!<333
18th-Apr-2013 04:01 pm (UTC)
maybe this season has all been a dream?

Sam, alone and devastated, falls into a deep sleep and is dreaming this season, because you know how weird dreams can be?

Sam not looking for his brother and having this weird dream like relationship with Amelia?

I'm crossing my fingers that the last 3 episodes will be good!!
19th-Apr-2013 12:20 am (UTC)
maybe this season has all been a dream

Believe it or not I considered this also! ha!

But I want the batcave to be real so maybe Sam was under a spell whilst in the batcave and imagined the whole season. In the last episode he will wake up there and they will start again...;)

Though Benny was interesting...
18th-Apr-2013 04:41 pm (UTC)
I'm not even looking for spoilers. I've hit the point where I'm so flabbergasted at the turn of events this season--and not at all in a good way--that I don't even want to know. I'm going to give the final three episodes all of my undivided attention, and they're going to be the litmus test of whether or not I tune back in for S9. This has been the show of my heart for nearly a decade, and I just hope that Carver has been feeding us a line of BS in his last interview (she says cryptically).

OTOH, I've been marathonning this season while I wait for next week, and the pacing is still godawful, but the plot holds together better than I thought. On yet another hand, the character assassination/ping-pong is sort of glaring when I watch 5 eps in a row. :(

On yet ANOTHER hand, hold me?
19th-Apr-2013 12:26 am (UTC)
and I just hope that Carver has been feeding us a line of BS in his last interview

Ack...*worries*. Carver didn't lead us astray in the beginning of the season, so I can't imagine he's saying anything that won't happen at the end either. I would love to be able to say "but I trust Carver. Look how he wound us up at the beginning of the season and none of that happened"..:(

I'm curious to see how the overall season looks once it's done. I can see important threads running through the episodes, but, as you say...the pacing has been all over the shop so it's hard to know how well (or not) it's going to go.

*clings tight* damn this show for making us care so much.
18th-Apr-2013 05:12 pm (UTC)
How are you me? Because ::points to your post. nods:: yeah, alla that. I've not really been able to sort out what I feel from what I dread from what I hope, so you know, thanks. And also? YAY New Zealand, indeed! Did you see the speech?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl8oKO7BAuU

I love the speech!
19th-Apr-2013 09:37 am (UTC)
I love that speech!! Hope refreshing to her a politician speak like an actual person. So inspirational.

:DD
