"Supernatural" Wins!

Every year, Zap2It's TV Gal hosts the "Amy Awards". The award categories are generated by her readers, who then vote for the winners in each category. I enjoy her award categories, because the idea is not "Best Show", but more like "Excuse Me, I'd Like My Emotional Investment Back (Most Beloved Canceled Show)" (an actual category, by the way, won by "Veronica Mars").

So, when my current favorite show, "Supernatural", took top honors in the category "If Only Amy Would Talk More About This Show (Best Show TV Gal Never Talks About)", I had to tell someone about it! "Supernatural" garnered 27% of the vote, topping "Battlestar Galactica" (23%), "Bones" (22%), "Jericho" (17%) and "Dexter" (11%). TV Gal provides excellent scoop on the a wide range of shows, so the extra publicity should be good for "Supernatural" - and, hopefully, will lure a few more people to watch this show.

I rated "Supernatural" as the number one show of the 2006-2007 season (although the "Lost" finale has me reconsidering my decision - wow, that was good). Still, "Supernatural" was the most consistent of all of my favorites last season. That's why it stays number one on my list. If you have not picked up the show, check out the DVDs. Know that the show took several episodes before it broke the "monster of the week" mold, so a new viewer must have some patience. But I guarantee that if you watch the entire first season, you will be hooked.

Don't just take my opinion, though. Zap2It readers agree. Filmfodder also has a "Supernatural" section that can get you up to speed. You will thank me later!

ARE YOU KIDDING!!!!! I must assume you mean number one show behind Heros.

I know the finale of Heros was weak but the show was by far better than Lost and supernatural put together.

What's Hero's? I take it this is a TV show?

Supernatural is THE best show on Television right now and it's about time people started to notice. I've been hooked since the very first episode came out and have never missed a show. It's awesome!

It's "Heroes".

And I honestly Supernatural and VMars are the only shows I watch on TV... The rest is too much drama, too long to develop the plot, too mysterious... no other shows have been able to lure me the way SN and VM did... too bad they cancelled VMars... THAT SUCKS!

Yeah, I'm crossing fingers so SN will get more publicity and people start watching... GO SN!

Marv - I have to say...you just have to watch "Supernatural" for a half-dozen episodes (or so) and you will be hooked. You've got three testimonials (me, shadow and mery) right here - trust us! :-)

I've got no real problems with Heroes (Hiro's show?). I even rated it in my top four (with BSG, SN and Lost). But, the writing gets distracting for me at times.

And, Mery...yeah, I am bummed about VMars too. I know the show creator, Rob Thomas, has moved on to "Miss/Guided" on ABC - I just don't know if I can watch that...but, it will probably be decent. Just not VMars.
