This is a pet project I’ve been meaning to do for a while now, and what do you know, quarantine seems to be providing the best opportunity. If you look in our handy dandy Episode Guides, you’ll notice that a review in my name is attached to most of the episodes. MOST. There are a few missing. 50 ish to be exact. Since we’re biding our time, waiting for “Supernatural” to play out it’s long delayed end, I’m going to do my best to catch up on all those missed reviews. This should be interesting.
I’ll tell you right now, you won’t see any catch-up reviews for seasons three, four, five, six, seven, ten, and eleven. For some really strange reason, I managed to keep up on all those seasons. I started blogging for “Supernatural” is season three and did try to go back and do reviews for the first two seasons, but that initiative failed with season one’s “Something Wicked” and I never got back to it. I have done a few recaps of really big episodes for seasons one and two, but there are three episodes in season one and the majority of season two where I missed general reviews. In season nine, well, we had glut of reviewers and I really, really hated season nine. So I didn’t write many reviews except for the TV Fanatic Roundtables. I missed a chunk of the last part of season thirteen too because of personal circumstances and a lot of the end of season fourteen because by that point in the season I was really pissed off. :) Then there’s just some random ones in between for seasons eight, twelve, and fifteen that I just didn’t get to.
I’ll start where it all began, with season one. I pulled out the DVDs and started the missed review rewatch. Up first, episode 1.18, “Something Wicked”.
On May 2nd, 1983, somewhere in Lawrence, Kansas, a boy was born to Mary and John Winchester. At the time of his birth, no one thought he would have to fight ghosts, demons, ghouls, vampires, and all the other natural and "supernatural" creatures of the world. Neither did they know how important he would be in the fight to stop the apocalypse and other calamities of the future.
Sam Winchester, today we celebrate your 37th birthday!
Editor's Note: This chilling verse gives us a glimpse into Sam's despair at the end of season 5, when he was in the cage. He reflects on the events of his life, and the warnings he chose to ignore along the way. His choices made him a hero but, nonetheless, left him alone and in despair. Sam desperately stokes the flames of hope, which are at the core of who he is as a person, but in the end, he sees no way out.
On the 24th April 1967, a General Motors vehicle rolled of the line at the plant in Janesville, Wisconsin.
On the 24th April 1974, somewhere in Toledo, Ohio, a baby boy was born.
Those sound like normal events.
Nobody would have thought that these two moments would change the lives of millions of people
and at the same time create a special family that does not end in blood.
