supernaturalHas anyone seen the WB series Supernatural? I love this cheese-fest! The bad acting, the lame plots, it’s awesome.

There was a lot of buzz about it this past fall, but it didn’t really catch my attention until one of the lead actors, Jared Padalecki, appeared on Ellen. I checked it out, and now I’m hooked.

The main concept:

The premise is good. Jared Padalecki plays Sam and Jensen Ackles plays Dean. They are brothers. Every week, a new urban legend randomly starts coming true. The brothers investigate the murder scenes, and solve the mysteries in 1 hour.

It’s like the Hard Boys, only gayer. The cheese factor is no surprise. This is the WB, afterall. But I love the awkward sexual tension between the brothers.

They drive around this vintage black car. It isn’t particularly impressive, but it does add a bit of sex appeal. So Dean is the super control freak “top”. He has to be driving at all times. I think there was a scene when Sam tried to drive, and Dean just couldn’t handle that. It’s like taking away his balls.

So Sam rides in the passenger seat. He’s the soft spoken bottom boy, always staring out the window in this deep, dreamy state of mind. No idea what the hell he’s thinking about, but I suspect he is wondering where this relationship is going, and if Dean will ever say “I love you”.

The hidden storyline:

Wait a minute…don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about incest here. See, that’s the backstory. They aren’t really brothers. They are secret lovers, hiding their dirty affair. So they pretend to be brothers so nobody questions why they are together 24/7, why they share a bed, and why they sponge off each other’s back in the shower (okay, I’m being mild here).

AHA! So now we’re getting somewhere. So the secret lovers go on these journeys and solve the crimes. They don’t get paid, I have no idea how they make a living, but we’ll ignore that tidbit.

Throughout the episodes, they give each other hot glances. It’s never part of the dialogue, they just look like they will rip each other’s clothes off at any given moment.


Let the inner gay out:

Dean always makes weird comments about “hot chicks”. You can just tell he’s a closet-case trying to fit in. And Sam just makes an irritated face. He never makes comments about girls. That’s because he’s secretly jealous that Dean would even joke about sleeping with a girl.

Personally, I think Sam needs to dump Dean and find a better man. Sure they have a powerful bond that allows them to fight evil spirits and protect the earth from being taken over by monsters. But where is the love?

Every week, Sam is the pawn. He comes very close to getting murdered by a ghost and that’s when Dean rescues him. But Sam doesn’t even get a hug. You’d think Dean would be relieved to see Sam still alive. Heartless bastard.

Isn’t it great? Now you have to watch this show. It’s a murder mystery/ghost story with creamy gayness mixed into every episode. It’s on Tuesday nights, 9/8 Central on the WB. And they play an encore on the following Sundays in case you miss it.

UPDATE: On last Tuesday’s episode, “Bugs”, they were mistaken for a gay couple and then pretended to be a gay couple in the next scene. See, I told you they are gay guys pretending to be brothers. You heard it here first.

  • The guys are cute, but they aren’t shirtless enough (actually almost never). I also am not a big fan of the soundtrack.

  • There’s a super lovely moment at the end of Bloody Mary. Dean was holding Sammy’s face, ready to lick him.

  • Right on, brother – there’s a ton of “brotherly” love going on in SPN and I adore it! You’ve captured them perfectly…except, well…I think they’re good actors but the gayness – broyah!

  • While I’m completely on board with the gay train (and yes, they ARE brothers – Wincest all the way, baby) I think your general take on the show is quite skewed.

    First of all, the boys are terrific actors. No, really. They are so impressive every single week. Granted, some of the extras have been less-than-average, but eh. It is the WB.

    And the basic concept – urban legends do not “randomly start coming true”. The premise of the show is that the stories we tell about things going bump in the dark ARE true, that most people just try to ignore it, and Sam and Dean are there to deal with it, with the sordid supernatural underbelly of America.

    They don’t make money, they commit credit card fraud and hustle people at pool and the like.

    Sam doesn’t mention girls because the girl he loved died a horrible death less than a year ago.

    And also, Sam drives a LOT. The only time Dean refuses him is in Wendigo (the second episode), and then at the end of the episode Dean gives him the keys, and from then on Sam is seen driving quite often.

    And they don’t share a bed (unfortunately!)

    All I’m saying is that this show is worth a much closer look than you’ve given it. It’s textured and well-executed, and while the homoerotic tension is pretty damn sweet, there’s a lot more that you could be getting out of it. Just a thought 🙂

  • Well, Anne, it’s interesting that you came over to my blog acting calm and friendly, then turned around and called me a “pompus ass” on another blog.

    Bottom line, this post was written in good fun and good humor. Anyone who takes it seriously is completely missing the point.

    And JDSampson – thanks for the compliments 🙂 I appreciate it and I’m glad you stopped by!

  • oh man, this made me laugh so hard. reminds me of why i love this show. i agree, they are supra secret lovers that have to hide behind the excuse of brothers. in seriousness, i think the network only made them brothers to try to make the show less gay. didn’t work. nice try though, wb.

    That was hilarious! You’ve got a damn clever turn of phrase on you. Despite the lack of research prior to tossing the article out, (which I figure is fine because this is blog, and therefore opinion based) its a fun read.
    The brothers aren’t supposed to be gay, but the fun aspect of everyone wishing they had some gay moments definately colors the show some different shades of interesting.
    I totally agree that Dean sounds like a closet trying to fit in with all the hot chick stuff.

  • Did you see Apr. 1st episode about the “preta” of the old farmer dude that strung up young women and attacked them with the axe? Well, the boys are playing practical jokes on eachother–including Dean putting iching powder in Sam’s underwear. Dean is caught by Sam, fumbling through his underwear; Dean turns around to catch Sam wearing nothing but a towel. It is the gayest moment I have ever seen in the show, the uncomfortable looks back and forth, Deans quick look down to Sam’s towel…

  • I think it’s pretty pathetic how many psychotic girls come here and post hateful, homophobic comments in regard to this post.

    First and foremost, you should know that every hateful comment is immediately sent to your internet provider and you will be charged with internet abuse and harassment. So don’t think your post is anonymous just because you try to hide your e-mail address.

    Second, this is a gay-based blog and the general audience is gay. This article was written with a sense of humor, and most people understand the humor behind this post. If you’re not a regular reader of my blog, you clearly have no clue about my writing style.

    Third, and finally, it is a huge disappointment that I even have to post this explanation to you homophobic bitches out there. I have the right to talk about whatever I choose on my blog. I pay the bills for it, and I maintain it. Just because you’ve got a thorn in your pussy doesn’t mean you have the right to bash gay people and post empty threats. Exactly what do you think you’re going to do to me, anyway?

    So let it be known that all hateful comments will be reported, you will be charged for them, and your remarks will be removed from this site. So save yourself some time and FUCK OFF!
