Supernatural > Supernatural Showrunner Shakeup: Sera Gamble Out, Jeremy Carver In > Comments Page 2
season 8 season 8 season 8.... these boys deserve real happiness. It's cruel if those people leave this show without an ending.
I'm glad I give her credit for trying but she just tried to much to fast and really let us down with no follow ups. I mea season 6 as a whole is pretty good mainly because by the last 6 episodes kripke came back into the fold and wrote the finale. He himself even said he was excited for what the finale of season 6 but she totally blew it. First she introduced a big bad for the season that got a one episode explanation. Kills off a major character in ep 2 then doesn't even mention him for most of the season. Then kills off another major character with no major follow up. But overall the season 7 has no arc. I mean some episodes sam's fallin apart others no mention, hen some episodes we have leviathins then others we got nothin or barely a mention. Wen asked what he thought in oct of 2011 kripke said "not what I had imagined" followed by the samequstion in feb of 2012 he said "no comment". So I'm hopin with carver on board they can get back to the basics and kripke's help.
There were only supposed to be 5 seasons, kripke even said that and that is why the first 5 rocked, they all had to have certain things happen and be connected. Season 6&7 were ok, not the greatest but they probably suffered because of that fact.
I really hope supernatural will come on for another season this coming fall.
Absolutely love this show :)
season 6 and 7 were ok , but they were in the worst of the series..time to move on and return the essence of the show. goodbye sera thanks for messing with everything up.
I don't have any problem with seasons 6 or 7 of SPN. Both are fine for a show that is on its last legs and running out of fresh ideas. I have no idea what Carver will come up with, but I hope that he does a good job in what could be its last season.
@Van, math with what numbers? How exactly do you count all the SPN fans to determine the majority. RME. All you can do is what the rest of us do which is post your opinion.
I liked Sera. She was good fine Season 6 might have been quite week but season 7 is great cmon give her a break. But i do love how Jefery writes. Hope Sera remains a writer on the show she is good
I don't care either way, this season is definitely better than last season. No, its not a comedy show but when they do have the funny moments in the show, it works, can't be all supernatural doom and gloom all the time.
@Lord of the Night
i am sorry but though Mystery spot had it's comedic moments, i didn't see it as a comedic ep. i think what is great about Carver's eps is that he knows when to bring comedy and when to balance it out with real drama, whereas Gambler seems a little lacking in bringing real drama, the eps she wrote were funny and all but this is not a comedy show, it's SPN, procedural/horror/mystery/action/drama/humor and unless ALL the elements are there it will not click.
i loved SPN the first five seasons, then i just stayed with it because i love the characters but the writing definitely deteriorated, i hope they will straighten it out.
And do sth about Castiel for God's sake! just the though of him stuck in that loonie bin drives me demonic!
Okay...let's do some basic math, here. The majority of SPN fans feel that seasons six and seven were beneath the quality level of the previous five seasons. Disregarding the 15% to 20% of fandom who unconditionally love every single episode, irregardless of quality (These folks invariably call anyone who says anything critical of the show "Trolls"), that leaves I suspect about 10% of viewers with a modicum of home training, who are too polite to trash Sera for her nebulous show runner skills. They say things like"I think Sera Gamble was given a bad rap, by women-hating mysoginist SPN fans..." That leaves roughly 70% of normal, non-obesessed, rational fans with eyes, a brain and a critical mind to celebrate the passing of the worst plage to his SPN since Croatoan. I wonder if it's just my imagination,or my nacent urge to detest any female who gets to work with The Boys, that is the cause of the correlation between Supernatural's two critically poorest seasons, and the arrival of Sera
I'll have to agree with Lord of the Night....I think Sera Gamble has done a fine job since Kripke left. Even though Season 6 is considered a weak season I think that it gets better on repeating viewing and is actually a good season of TV and I have also enjoyed season 7 greatly with it's back to basics approach
@Jarrod Mitchell You do not speak for me.
I treat this as mixed news. Sera Gamble wrote some of the finest episodes in the show, while Jeremy Carver has written some damn fine episodes most of them were comedy episodes like Mystery Spot and Changing Channels.
Have to wait and see how it goes. Hopefully Gamble will stick around as a writer.
I think I speak for every Supernatural fan when I say; THANK GOD!
I think this is good news...Jeremy Carver has wrote some of the show's best episodes and I think the fact that he's been gone for a couple of years means he can bring fresh eyes to the show whilst still knowing what makes it tick.
