Supernatural v. 13 Lucifer II: Electric Bugaloo

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Season premiere was on tonight.  I can't believe this show is still chugging along...or that I'm still enjoying it, 13 years in.  Anyone else still on board?

I'm still watching and likely will keep doing so  until they finally call it a day.  After this long, I may as well right?  

 

This show has no real drive or focus, and it hasn't since season 5 wrapped. It just.... kinda meanders around from idea to idea and rarely commits to anything in a real way.  

 

But there's usually at least 2-3 really good episodes a season, and I still love the core cast (which appears to be halved now, sadly) bouncing off of each other.  I just wish Edlund had gotten the reigns.

I didn't catch the opener yet, but I will.  I'm in the same boat as Andronicus where I've invested so much time into this series that I feel like I should just keep going.  Last season was a chore, though.  Season 11 was pretty decent, and I would've been content with that being the end.  Oh, well.

 

I'm looking forward to the Scooby-Doo crossover, but Crowley being gone is going to leave a hole.

Stopped at five.  From the sounds of things I'm glad I did.  Not that more of the shows highs are a bad thing,  but the aimlessness is what REALLY kills it for me. 1-5 was such amazing TV.  Slowly building from X-Files monster of the week in season 1 with only small myth arc hooks, to more myth arc in season two, to even more in 3 etc... to a full fledged myth arc that the boys couldn't escape from if they wanted to by season 5.  That entire season feels climatic.  It feels like something organically built to, a natural end. Like the whole show was working towards that all the time.  To see the mighty and powerful Lucifer be this sort of pithy side character guest star almost offends me.  He was the ultimate big bad, he was a big ass deal.

Did you hear they met god? He was a dick who ate cereal and him and Lucifer argued like a teenager and a father. Doesn't that sound adorable?

 

Anyway now that CW made that deal with Netflix where the entire season ends up there a week after the finale airs im just going to wait and watch it that way. There was a time when I couldn't wait and that time was between 1-5. I can't just stop now because I invested so much time but I know most of the season will disappoint me. 

 

What does kind of interest me though is that this season they are doing a backdoor pilot for their spinoff Wayward Sisters. Apparently Sheriff Jody Mills and her 2 adopted daughters are going monster hunting on their own. Considering they will have to have their own creative team I imagine this could actually be a good show.

God, I hope it's better than their last attempt at a backdoor pilot. Bloodlines, was it?  

 

Honestly, the show has gotten so random that it feels like it would fit in with the MCU, or any superhero universe.  I keep expecting them to team up with Dr Strange or hunt Swamp Thing.

I kinda feel bad dredging this thread back up, doesn't seem like anyone else is really into this anymore, but, damnit...I'm actually digging it so far. I'm a big fan of 'The Shit-Talkin' Lucifer and Mum Roadshow'

I still enjoy it. Is this only the second backdoor pilot attempt? I thought that episode with the male witch and his dog who turned into a girl was an attempt at a pilot too. She was also his girlfriend.

The first two episodes have been okay.  I'm not sure what to think of Asmodeus yet.  A Crowley clone likely wouldn't have worked, but I'll miss his humor.  Asmodeus is clearly not being written in that direction.

 

We haven't seen the last of the Shedim, I think.
