It's my day off and brain is full of fandom stuff... (of course!).



I love waking up and seeing my flist full of yummy things. A few days ago it was awash with AMAZING images of Jared at the beach (made my friggin' day!\o/)

This morning there was all the CW Upfront pics of the boys sporting their scruffy looks. Is it just me or does Jared look slimmer (um..gaunt even?) than usual? Might just be the look of the pic because he was certainly look super buff in the beach shost. I'm only musing this because I know the toll having a baby on board can take. I'm absolutely loving their complementary suits. And um... same shirt??? OH BOYS!!!

News is that Supernatural will now be aired on a Wednesday night. I'm pleased for the Show because apparently this is a much better time slot and shows the confidence the CW has in the show \o/. Not so great for watching in AUS because I will have to wait until Thursday evening to watch. But.. that's cool. I usually have Thursday nights to myself so it probably works out nicely. :)

The CW boss claims S8 won't be the last season. That's quite a statement and it's pretty exciting. Though I am worried about how they are going to find interesting stories - especially concerning the brothers and the season arc big bad. But as long as they keep both brothers the center focus (mostly... I get that they have to give them easier loads sometimes) I will be happy.

There is a S8 synopsis out but I am waiting until I've seen the finale because I read it as I am sure it will contain spoilers for the last ep. I pretty much jump all over new season spoilers because that hiatus is LONG! I am desperate to see where they plan to go.




FINALE! ACK!!.... I'm scared. I'm scared about what they are going to do. I shouldn't be... I should just TRUST...but there seems to be so many open threads leading to this last episode I am scared they are going to be doing some cramming. WE SHALL SEE!! I'm watching it with some fellow fans so I'm sure there will be lots of dissecting immediately afterwards. \o/

A poll just 'cause... END OF THE SEASON!

The s8 synopsis is incredibly vague and unspoilery, short of attributing strange and convoluted allegorical significance to its word choice.
18th-May-2012 03:33 am (UTC)
Oh cool.. so safe to read then? I was worried it might give away how S7 ends.

Thanks :)

I was actually about a 3.5-4.0 yesterday, but then someone posted a vid (http://growyourwings.livejournal.com/584910.html) showing a unique way of showcasing Chuck's speech from S5 finale and that got me looking at all the seasons finale openings and listening to Carry On My Wayward Son and I got all EXCITED!

So I'm now a 5, thank you very much.

:)

18th-May-2012 03:35 am (UTC)
Oh yes! I saw that vid. A great way to showcase that speech. Wonderfully done. Makes me miss the Impala EVEN MORE!! Whaaaaaa....

Wheeeee and listening to Carry On is a sure fire way of getting excited. I think I'm even more excited now.... ;)
18th-May-2012 03:24 am (UTC)
but... but... what if they don't cater to my fannishly crazy plot-based needs???

pretty damn excited, but afraid they're going to break my heart somehow. like split the boys up. (or make the whole ep about cas, grumble)
18th-May-2012 03:41 am (UTC)
Um... yeah... I think I am mostly concerned about the bracket part also. I mean, they could do some interesting stuff with that but I really not that interested in watching him coming to grips with all his issues. Sure - give some stuff (if they have to) but let's not have entire scenes. (ooohh....I think I just grumbled too. I will save them until AFTER the ep. But hopefully there won't be any...)

And... yikes... splitting the boys up. That would suck unless it created some super angst or something. If they ever "go their separate ways" for more than an ep or two I will be seriously struggling. They might do it to create a cliffy for the next season I suppose. Dammit! That means heartbreak. Though we haven't had that much this season so we are probably due for some.

*bites nails*
18th-May-2012 03:35 am (UTC)
I'm sort of "meh" right now but am hoping to pull myself out of my malaise. I still haven't watched last Friday night's episode, what's wrong with me?????

I am happy Show is being recognized for its seven years of awesomeness though. 'Bout time. ;)

18th-May-2012 03:45 am (UTC)
Oh noes!!! not *meh*!! :((((

I'm dreading that feeling. I figure it will happen one day. There are some places that Show could go that would leave me feeling *meh*. I hope they don't though.

The last ep was pretty good (for me, better than the previous one. That left me feeling very underwhelmed. Even after reading some positive reviews on it.)

I wish I could get you excited! (I'm hoping I can leave a squeeful review....)

*hugs*
18th-May-2012 03:49 am (UTC) - Finale viewing party.... Bring It On!!!!!!
I've been a 5 all season long!!! I want my SPN ep and I want it now, dammit!!!!!!!!!!!! A 4 month hellatus is going to be pure hell and we all know hell time is about 10 times longer than real time which is just gonna make it even worse.

Can't wait to watch the finale tomorrow with you and Kris. Just hope we can keep the squeeing to a minimum, at least during the first viewing. Will have the coffee and apple pie all warmed up & ready to go.

If you haven't already, I would avoid the Jared vid from upfronts. He says some rather spoilery things regarding S8 that I really wish I hadn't heard. I've seen others on my flist thinking that Jared is perhaps just speculating and without going into spolier territory, I'm sorta hoping he's both right and wrong. Guess we'll know more this time tomorrow.
18th-May-2012 06:26 am (UTC) - Re: Finale viewing party.... Bring It On!!!!!!
Hi! Yes! Looking forward to it...:)

(I might just have to squee when Carry On Wayward Son comes on...)

I haven't listened to Jared's upfronts yet. I don't really mind being spoiled for S8 - there's no way I can wait for 4 months and not know what we are in for. I think I've read some spoilers about that anyway. I'm not sure he'd really know anyway. I doubt they have cemented next years stories yet. My big concern is that they may lessen his work load due to him having a baby. Not sure, but it would be a shame to have to see less of him.

At least we'll have a better idea after the show.

I won't be able to watch it until Saturday, but I'M SO NERVOUS.

I'm worried about Bobby and the Impala. And I know ((not really, just assuming)) they're going to leave Sam and Dean on the edge of some precipice, I just hope they're together on that edge.

Plus, I'm worried about stuff mentioned in other comments about other possible story lines. Another one could be... what if Bobby saves Crowley? That would be rather awesome, but it would take up SO MUCH TIME.

*stops rambling*
*bites nails*

18th-May-2012 06:29 am (UTC)
Yes yes... so many things that could happen. I've been hoping that they don't try to resolve the Bobby thing in this episode... as well as confront Dick and sort out Cas and worry about Meg etc. etc.

And I'm sure they will have to leave the boys in some precarious position. Arghhhhhh

Not long until we find out!! :))
18th-May-2012 05:25 am (UTC)
The S8 synopsis sounds like a summary of S7! Whatever, it's another year of live canon and all of us buzzing around a new ep every week - yay!!!!!
18th-May-2012 06:31 am (UTC)
YES!!! Live canon! Speculation, excitement, drooling....

I can live with more of that... :)))
18th-May-2012 08:05 am (UTC)
They'sve made a commitment for beyond season 8? Wow, that's - unexpected? I guess I believe it once that has translated into an actual seaonson order (because TV execs talk a lot of bullshit to promote their stuff). But if it's true, it's kind of exciting, because it means that they have a lot of time to work towards a clear end point which normally means better plot and nicely wraped up story lines. That would be a yay (even though it means knowing when it'll end....)
18th-May-2012 09:20 am (UTC)
I really hope they know when they are ending. With a show like this (and the following it has) it would only be fair to give us a solid ending. I dread them ending it thinking they have another season only for the plug to be pulled (hee... I think the fan uproar would be pretty massive).

But yeah.... looks positive for more seasons. Apparently the move to Wednesday night is a good sign also.

So YAY all round.

I'm just too nervous to get excited - honestly, I don't think they've done much of a set up for the final and I have this feeling that it's going to seem a bit rushed and a hell of a lot of time taken up with Meg, Crowley and Castiel. I think by now everyone knows I'm only happy when it's Sam and Dean and the IMPALA - *weeps* - as much fun as it's been seeing them in all these different vehicles - I WANT BABY BACK! NOW!

Bobby, there's that to be settled too, unless some of that is being saved for next season. Honestly, the decision to exorcise him or not, might not make a very good season ender for me, as we've already kind of lost him once.

Most of all I want the cliff hanger, if there is even a cliff hanger, to be about one of the brothers - I need that - I admit I'm weird that way, but unless they're so tied up in each other they're not thinking straight then I'm unsatisfied.

I'm avoiding ALL those interview vids, there's rumblings about them that I haven't been able to avoid and maybe after the show tomorrow I'll get around to watching them, but probably not, cast interviews don't really interest me, I'll check around for summaries though.

Change of day won't bother me as long as I can find some kind soul who's uploaded - might take me longer to do some of the conversions, I always have more time Saturday mornings for those, but I don't think many are as stuck for the different files as they used to be.

Past season 8? Of course I want show to go on forever! Hehe, however, I also need the cast to be happy about that, trap anyone into a contract or on a show they're not happy about and sorry, but no matter how good an actor they are it leaks through and it will hurt the show for me. So yes, bring on season 9 but ONLY if Jared AND Jensen are totally 100% happy to stay with the show. I'm probably going to get blasted for this but if either of them are not 100% committed, if one of them or both of them agrees to do another season but only so many episodes or something like that? Then I might just bail. It would hurt like hell, but better that than watching in frustration and venting frequently about how it used to be... ack! I say that now, but could I stop watching? Hm, maybe not, but I'd probably disconnect from current fandom and catch up on everything I've missed down the past 8 years!
18th-May-2012 09:30 am (UTC)
if one of them or both of them agrees to do another season but only so many episodes or something like that? Then I might just bail.

Agreed. The day it becomes about one bro (say 5 eps with one of them out of the picture) then it will lose it's pull for me. It's always been about them for me so anything short of that will leave me dissatisfied. I mean, I can take an episode like Weekend at Bobby's - little of the boys in it but the episode held together nicely and the bit we did have was great.

I too worry that it's going to be a Meg, Crowley and Cas thing. At the moment they are the only ones who seem to have character issues left up in the air. I don't mind that exactly, but if it become the major thrust of the whole episode then I'm afraid my review my not be a squeeful as I'd like it to be.

But. I shall reserve judgement. If it's awful then at least there is next year to look forward to. The producers know the show has been successful because of those two so they surely can't change that formula. Surely....

Catch ya on the flip side.

Nervous. Very, very nervous.

18th-May-2012 01:44 pm (UTC)
You are a great "place" to turn to- no matter what you write, you always have something positive in it. And now this post is stuffed with YAY! Thank you for providing the links, for the great news (how awesome to have a boss who is fond of SPN, as it seems!) and I'll read you soon- season finale!!! I chose #4. Because the boys don't seem to be in danger, and who cares for the rest of the world... *gg*
19th-May-2012 12:58 am (UTC)
Awww thanks hun. I want to be all OMG OMG I CANT WAIT... but a little part of me is SCARED .... I can't imagine what they could throw at us that could top anything that's come before....

We shall see soon!!

18th-May-2012 03:23 pm (UTC)
Excited! Particularly for S8 - I can't wait to see where they're going to go from here.
19th-May-2012 12:59 am (UTC)
Oh yeah - definitely excited for S8! I suppose I'm hoping for something cliff hanger like to keep us excited over the hiatus....
18th-May-2012 04:40 pm (UTC)
I feel a little bad for being only "pretty excited", when I'm counting the hours to the House finale on Tuesday morning. This is a turn of events I wouldn't have expected a month ago!
19th-May-2012 01:02 am (UTC)
Ha! Well.... it is the final final episode of House so I can grant you being more excited about that...

I'm feeling cautiously excited. Though the closer it gets the more *bouncy* I'm feeling. :))

(I'm picking up coffee on the way to Peta's. Let me know if you'd like me to grab you one).

18th-May-2012 06:10 pm (UTC)
I'm totally at Defcon 5. The blurb for S8 is not spoilery; it's just vague and sounds like every other blurb.

I am hoping for a monumental cliffhanger! I'm unspoiled, but I hope that one of them gets sucked into Purgatory, and then the other will have to go get him. That way, there will be the hat trick of Hell, Heaven and Purgatory.
19th-May-2012 01:06 am (UTC)
Yes! Monumental!! Something that will make us gasp and say "omg! I can't believe they just did that!". And the idea of one of them going into purgatory excites me no end! Or both.... and they are lost and are desperate (desperate I tell you!) to find each other.

Damn....I think I might be heading for disappointment now...

WE SHALL SEE!! (Hee...I'll be squealing if something like actually did happen).xx
18th-May-2012 09:18 pm (UTC)
I was TOTALLY ZEN about the finale, and then JA dropped ONE SPOILERY LINE in an interview, and I lost my calm and got all AWDJFJJS!!!1 Asshat. *gg*
19th-May-2012 01:08 am (UTC)
Ha! I have been desperate to listen to some of those spoilers (apparently Jared dropped some goodies too) but I have remained strong! Wheeee! Your excitement has got me all excited!!
