After four years of death-defying demon hunting, the Winchester Brothers have finally met their match: A handful of teenager girls.
How else to explain Jared Padelecki and Jensen Ackles conspicuous absence (once again!) from the upcoming SUPERNATUARL panel at July’s San Diego Comic Convention, which as of this posting has Misha Collins (Castiel), Jim Beaver (Bobby Singer), Eric Kripke (Creator/Executive Producer), Sera Gamble (Executive Producer) and Ben Edlund (Executive Producer) scheduled to attend.
Simply put, there is no excuse. If anyone owes their fandom a thank you for five seasons of continuous employment — not to mention the ludicrously large paychecks that come with said employment — it’s the brothers J. In fact, we’d even go as far as to say that the legion of loyal and very vocal SUPERNATURAL fans are — aside from Kripke himself — responsible for not only having kept the show on the air all these years, but also for having garnered the series a whole lotta mainstream attention. After all, the spookfest’s fans have proven time and again that, to paraphrase Field Of Dreams if you write it, they will come. (Heck, BuddyTV.com has practically built an entire business around the show’s fanbase!)
Which brings us back to the guys who drive those fans nuts. Seriously, what’s the deal? You certainly had no trouble pandering to your fanbase by spending your hiatus filming retreads of Friday The 13th andMy Bloody Valentine. If your on-screen personas can face down everything from dastardly demons to slash-happy serial killers, surely y’all can deal with a few thousand screaming fans, right?
