Supernatural

After hearing the news about Supernatural ending, I felt like I needed to say a few words.

First off, even though I think most of us could sense that the end was near, I mean 15 seasons is a big deal for a show, hearing confirmation kinda makes it pretty real.

Second, I will tell you my own experience with Supernatural. First off, I am a Star Trek fan from pretty much the beginning of The Next Generation. TNG aired when I was about 4, and I followed the show religiously through the TNG years, DS9, and VOY. As a young girl growing up in the ’80s and ’90s, I have to say how much of a profound impact Star Trek had on me. Those of us fans who literally grow up on a show, it’s like a part of us.

When TNG ended, it was like losing a close friend. DS9 hurt and although Voyager had already syndicated by the time I got into it, I still felt the impact. When you grow up on a fandom, it’s a part of you and although you know it has to end sometime, when it really does, it definitely hurts but at the same time, you have to believe that a show like Star Trek never really dies. The fans have kept it alive through the years and I am grateful that I got to be a part of the Trekkie family.

The power of Supernatural is that no matter when you got hooked, whether it was there for you from the beginning or whether you’ve only been watching for a few months, you realize that you are part of something big.

So take it from a Star Trek fan that although it hurts when it ends, shows as powerful as Supernatural never truly ends.
