Rachel's Blog: Supernatural - not so super.

Mon, 16 Jan 2006

(Yah, I spent forever thinking up that title.)
I just watched the first episode of channel ten's "best show of 2006", which was great, because now I've seen the best they have to offer I can safely leave channel ten alone for the rest of the year.
For a horror show it wasn't very - well, no. Some of the dialogue was pretty horrifying. I'll give it that.

It's been a while since I watched a show with ads included, and it proved to be one of the most tedious exercises of my life. No more commercial tv for me.

I also noticed that while channel ten has plenty of time to show lame programs like Supernatural (the first episode is screening again this week, sorry that would be an Encore Presentation), channel nine is having trouble with their plethora of quality programs and has to screen the highly acclaimed (for "highly acclaimed", you can also read "cancelled by the Fox Network") Wonderfalls at 4.30 pm on Saturdays.

And they wonder why downloading tv from teh intawebs is so appealing?

I think this is why I'm so unmotivated to actually get the TV recording part of the HTPC working again. There's simply nothing to record.

Hey, I disagree! I'm a constant commercial channel watcher and although sometimes ad breaks begin to get tedious, the shows are usually worth it. Especially supernatural. As a teenager, my taste would be quite different to yours but my parents do enjoy it. Supernatural-pretty damn super!

Thanks for your comment, Jane. I've read a few opposing reviews now about Supernatural. Perhaps I should give it another chance!

Supernatural is awesome!!, yeh the commercials piss ya off but really, if u wana watch a show, u'de wait! Dont ditch a show cuz of the commercials! Besides its alot more fun to have a break n go 2 the loo rather then bust urself thru the whole thing! lol
But anyway, atleast thats what I think, right?

ciao, Maz

It continues to happen. I've been an avid follower of "Surface" since it began, and now, unsurprisingly, Channel 10 has decided to shove it into the late night time of 11pm!! It's only several episodes into the second series! Why do the commercial networks persist in alienating viewers by throwing programs all over the place so we have no idea when they're gonna be on? I'm with you Rachel, it's downloading TV from now on...oh, that is if only Australian broadband was anywhere near the speed as it is everywhere else in the world!!

Grrrr!

Do u wanna know why surface was pushed back? bcoz no-one cares about it! Ahh there's sumthing in the water. Lets go in and get KILLED! it's a terrible show and one of the biggest disappointments of the year!

A good show on the other hand is SUPERNATURAL! i dont know wat all u oldies r talking about! supernatural is SUPER and the cast is SUPER hot! (Especaially SAM!!!)

And all those ppl that think commercial TV is bad, just think of it this way; it builds up the suspense on a mega scale!

I really enjoyed watching Surface as well and have watched it from the beginning. I watched 2 episodes at 11:30pm on Sunday night, when they were moved from Tuesday 7:30 then Saturday 6:30pm. However now it seems to have disappeared from the tv guides all together and i can't find if it is even still playing. Does any one know what time it plays now and what day? It was just getting to the best part too......

hey yo, stop picking on a good show like that. i bet your a big brother fanatic, so what if it's not scarey no one ever said it was supposed to be, the only reason it says it's a horror before the show is to cover their arses if a kid watched it an had a bad dream. so go bag out some thing that deserves the attention. no disrespect intended but everyone is welcome to their opion an i happen to love it a lot more then a tonne of other shows that are on.
