ngl extremely ready to rubberneck on spn series finale meltdown drama today...
@alis no destiel reunion or anything (cas doesn't even show up) so the shippers are gonna be raging for sure :/
@tony_stark Yeah I watched people liveblog it on Tumblr because I am Terrible™️, lol.
There was just... pretty much *everything* in the ep sounds like a massive DNW for me, though I still can't get over that, a) they killed Dean with a terrible pun, and b) after, like, eleven years of deconstructing how the idea of Heaven is kinda shit, actually, they just... unironically brought it back with a handwave? And made it everyone's Life Goal to get there? Like, I just... uh... o_O
@alis worst ending ever. this is essentially a free pass for other sci-fi shows to be lazy and queerbait-y, too, since "supernatural did it and everyone still loves it"
@tony_stark I... don't necessarily think they will, though?
Like, SPN was a long-running show and people had affection for it because of that, but it started in a time where TV looked *very* different to the way it does now, particularly re. queer rep. The finale feels very out-of-step with more modern shows because of that. And also there's just... so much more media now and people have so much more choice/access. They don't have to "settle" any more.
@alis that’s true. I suppose I feel disappointed by shows like BBC Sherlock who made promises to reel viewers in.
