What makes the Supernatural fandom different than other fandoms?
What's behind the SPNFamily's generous and enthusiastic support of charitable causes?
What will happen to the SPNFamily now that Supernatural is over? 

These are a few of the questions tackled by a panel of Supernatural fans who double as science fiction/fantasy authors, editors and university lecturers!

As I was looking for a way to pass the quarantine doldrums, I saw Entertainment Weekly’s list of what it considered to be the 75 most ‘essential’ episodes of Supernatural, leading up to Season 15. Since any excuse for a rewatch is a good excuse, I figured I’d not only invite my Supernatural "Team Free Will North Carolina" (TFWNC) Facebook group to join me, but I’d also recap my thoughts on which episodes Entertainment Weekly (EW) chose, which ones they skipped, and what was left out.  Music plays such a big role in Supernatural, so I also noted which iconic songs were included and which were missed in the skipped episodes. Reporting on all that turned into quite the project, and The WFB was kind enough to let me share it here! (My snarky opinions are my own and don’t reflect those of The WFB.)

So come on the journey with me! Start with season 1, then follow the links until you catch up with us in season 9! 

You came, you saw, you submitted nominations! Now, it's your chance to vote. Presenting, the WFB "Supernatural" Season 15 Fan Choice Awards, voting phase.

For those that may recall, just before the new year I asked for your nominations in 16 categories that would be put to a fan vote.  One of those usual categories, Most Tear Jerking Moment of Supernatural Season 15, was so obvious (the barn scene in "Carry On") that I just awarded it at that time.  Well, turns out there are a few others that turned out to be a bit obvious after going through the nomination process, so, I improvised a bit.  

“No Exit” isn’t one of my favorites.  I’m putting that out there right now.  This episode was so…off.  I think it’s because season two was on such a roll.  The previous episode revisited Sam’s arc, and it’s not pretty.  I mean, he is, but the situation isn’t.  Couple that with the exciting premiere, then John dying, then Dean off the rails…to go from everything that happened before to this just didn’t work.  I get the intention and on paper it looked good, but something about this episode threw off a perfectly good rhythm.

It hasn't been an easy year in the MOL bunker...

It's been a few weeks, we've had time to digest the series finale a bit, but it's fresh enough in our minds where it's time to channel all those emotions and thoughts into something else.  Yes, it's time to do our annual awards!  

Ever since season seven, a certain number of award categories have been set aside and offered to you, the Supernatural fans, for judgement.  It gives the fandom that chance to be heard, just because we care.  Before I can come up with a final vote though, we need nominations!
