Since I'm on a campaign to remind myself of why I fell in love with Supernatural in the first place, and to beat back the clouds of negativity that seem to always surround the current season, let's have a pleasant wallow in our favorite bits of this wonderful show.

  • Have a favorite scene?

  • A line you find yourself constantly quoting?

  • Something that makes you laugh (or cry) every time?

  • An episode that you think everyone should watch at least once?

I was watching some vids yesterday with my kid that I think milly_gal posted and they used a lot of clips from the early seasons. There was one that featured a lot of the monsters from early on like the Scarecrow and the creepy clown thing. My kid has only seen a couple of the later episodes with Charlie and not anything too scary. She's older now and the scary stuff isn't so much a worry but she was surprised to see how the show really started out as one scary episode after another. They did a good job with the show of working in all the things we imagine go bump in the night. The early desaturated colors of film worked so well for the gothic nature of those episodes. The later seasons have their own good flavor too but it was cool to go back and think on some of the early horror they did so well.
Yeah, they did some amazing things with atmosphere in the first two seasons--and I always get a bit of a thrill when they give us a throwback to that style, even now: "The Big Empty", "The Memory Remains", "Plush"--just to name a few examples from recent years. But s1 in particular really was like a new horror mini-movie every week.
