8) What one thing introduced in the Pilot do you wish we had more of these days, (i.e. rock-n-roll, bitch/jerk, urban legends, seeing them scam for cash, be it poker or pool)? And those are just suggestions to get you thinking; feel free to add more.
Elle - All of the above! Specifically, any of the brothers as con artist moments would be great to see. We get to see them doing the impersonation thing fairly regular, but I'd love to see them more deeply undercover or demonstrating the skills they lived on and learned from John: hustling and conning through the back roads - especially together. It's fun to watch and the few moments we've seen have been interrupted or too short. Can we get a White Collar inspired SPN episode or sequence? Please?!
Elle2 - It’s hard to pick, there’s so much in the Pilot I love. But, I’ll go for it anyway: I wish we saw more of the scamming for cash at poker or pool and such. I’m not sure why, perhaps it’s just because there’s something about the brothers hanging out in a bar, scamming some cash that I enjoy, likely because we don’t see it very often, but it is fun and it shows their teamwork. I’ve said more than once that I wish they’d find a stash of money in the Bunker, and then we could see them slowly transferring those older bills into younger bills at the various gas-n-sips and in poker games and such. Every now and then some of the nittier, grittier details of their lives is fun to play with – like laundry!
Metamorphic Rocks - Oh, it’s very hard to choose just one – I’d love to see more of all those things! If I had to pick, though, it would be more classic rock. It was a unique signature of the series early on, and it enhanced the show on so many levels (character, story, etc.).
Let me be clear, however, that when I say more classic rock, I don’t just mean five seconds of a song, but a full montage with the music at the center, something like “Renegade” in the Season Two episode “Nightshifter,” or “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” in Season One’s “Faith.” Those musical sequences gave us some of the best scenes (even now) that the show has ever created. I miss them.
Percysowner- I miss several of these, but I really wish they would go back to the urban legends. Sometimes I feel like I've overdosed on demons and angels, especially the angels. I would love some new urban legends. The issue may be that they don't have the money for the effects, just like they don't have the money for the rock-n-roll. But I would love some new supernatural creature to fight.
