So I am loving Supernatural so far. I have re-watched both of this season's episodes, and I don't think I did that at all with Season 6. I thought the guys were spectacular in "Hello Cruel World." I loved that the guys were working together and not at cross purposes. It reminds me that what I love most about he show is the story of the brothers. For me they could be fighting almost anything so long as they are together, supporting each other. And for me, the show is so much better when that dynamic is there than when it isn't.

I have a good friend who doesn't watch the show but indulges me by listening to me talk about it and tuning in for a couple of episodes that I think she might like. She has taken to using Jared and Jensen/Sam and Dean as the example of cast chemistry by which all other show casts are compared. And she readily admits that she sees nothing on the air that comes close to their chemistry. So I had been a bit frustrated with the show for seeming to forget sometimes what makes it so special. But so far this season is really rocking that chemistry and so are the guys.

I thought Jared was great playing Soulless Sam, but watching him fall apart and try and hold it together is really a treat. And Jensen was equally awesome showing his concern while trying to not really seem too concerned. I love that this show has allowed these boys to grow into men.

So I am so happy to be excited about Friday nights again.

And I saw the best movie, "Thunder Soul." It is about the Kashmere High School Show Band which during the 1970s was the best show band in the country. It was the first all black band to compete against the white show bands, and the first to add funk music to the very white-bread traditional jazz music that the other bands played. It is an awesome and inspiring story, tempered by the fact that bad principals, bad district and school leadership can manage to ruin almost anything that is good for kids. But those men and women who were the kids in the 70s band are perfect evidence of why things like music in public schools matters. And the band director at my school plays awesome drums--both then and now. If you don't want to see the movie, at least go to iTunes and listen to the Kashmere Band play Kashmere (or anything else, it is all good). Awesome!

I'm really loving SPN so far too! Two episodes in and it's already so much better than last year (and I actually liked last year, lol). I can't wait to see where this season goes :)
