Ok so none of this is the fault of Netflix, let’s get that out there first. Netflix has a great offering of both good and bad stuff…and sadly, this is some of the bad.
First up: Warehouse 13. It’s some SyFi (formerly Sci-Fi) “original.” Problem is, it’s not terribly original at all…it’s basically that old “Friday the 13th” TV show with heavy Torchwood overtones, dumbed down for an American audience. It’s fucking awful. The cast is terrible, the scripts are terrible and the show is basically ass. Skip it and watch Torchwood…even Torchwood at it’s worst is better than this bullshit.
Which brings me to the real point of this post: A show called “Supernatural.” I understand this stupid fucking show has some kind of large following out there…there is no accounting for taste. Basically, Supernatural is this: two meatheads at the local weight room decide to take up “demon hunting.” It’s filled with insightful dialog like this “Hey, there’s this evil cult that I think we should investigate!” Well hold the fuck on there Agent Mulder, did you say an “evil” cult? Whoah there, that’s fucking deep.
This show doesn’t get any better with subsequent watches. Take one part “Evil Dead” meets one part “Buffy the fucking Vampire Slayer” and mix in two Chooches from the gym downtown and you get this bullshit. Oh it tries to be deep, but there’s something about two fucking douchebags pretending to be FBI agents (badly) and fighting “demons” with the help from some redneck piece of shit who we’re supposed to believe has hacked into every phone system on earth…FUCK off. Why is this show on Netflix? Why the fuck is it still on the air, and not cancelled like it richly deserves? Fucked if I know.
There are perfectly GOOD shows, like Fringe, or Galactica, that were forced to end their runs before their time. They had top-notch actors and really good stories…even the crappy episodes were better than 99% of the shit on TV. But, the network suits decided to kill them off…and keep fucking garbage like Stupidnatural on the air. I guess no one loses betting on the distracted teenaged girl audience, right? This is why rock is still dead but that’s a post for another day.
Bottom line, avoid these shows. They’re about as much fun as a weekend in Hotbeef’s rectum.
