Supernatural's Terrific Season 11

We here at GHPALS are great fans of The CW's Supernatural. The scribe has been watching it live since Season One, when her then 14-year old daughter wanted to watch it. The daughter moved on to other shows a few years ago, but I've stayed an avid fan.

The PALS all agree it's a crime to watch Season One on Netflix because so much of the original music was replaced with lesser songs. By Season Two the music rights contracts applied to digital versions, so it's OK to watch all the other seasons on Netflix. Of course we're all terribly grateful to the streaming service because the fans who found Supernatural on it are helping keep the show on the air.

But the scribe is rambling. At our last meeting we agreed Season Eleven is AWESOME (to quote Dean Winchester). This last episode with Bobby and Rufus was outstanding. We love those guys.

Once we talked about the ranking we'd assign to the seasons. After much fruitless debate and heated discussion, we gave up. We realized each has its mix of weak and strong episodes. Instead we talked about favorite episodes, and the heat died down.

Since I'm the official recorder, I'm listing my  "go-to" episodes, ones I watch over and over again whenever I want a break from reality.
  • Dead in the Water (Season 1)
  • Scarecrow (Season 1)
  • Hollywood Babylon (Season 2)
  • The Usual Suspects (Season 2)–Sam at his smartest and Dean at his snarkiest.
  • Hell House (Season 1) and Ghostfacers (Seaon 3)–you have to watch them together.
  • The Monster at the End of This Book (Season 4)
  • The Real Ghostbusters (Season 5)
  • Weekend at Bobby's (Season 6)
  • Clap Your Hands if You Believe (Season 6)
  • The French Mistake (Season 6)
  • The Girl With the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo (Season 7)
  • LARP and the Single GIrl (Season 8)
  • Everybody Hates Hitler (Season 8)
  • Fan Fiction (Season 10)
  • Hibbing 911 (Season 10)
  • Baby (Season 11)
If you study my list you'd think Season 6 would be my favorite season because 3 of my favorite shows are from it. That's not the case. I don't have a favorite season, just favorite shows.

Here's to Season Twelve!!!
