Supernatural - A little less than a happy high
komos

Supernatural
This is the one thing I'll ever say about the series since I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get past the writing ("Things that are dead should stay dead," says Dean. "You just don't mess with that stuff." o_O)... How is it that our heroes cruise around in a mint condition classic Chevy that is perfectly tuned and always buffed to a high-gloss shine, but they can't manage to put grease on the fecking door hinges so they don't creak like an Age of Sail frigate???

Dear lord people.

Can't answer your rhetorical question, as I have been hypnotized by your icon.

Having never watched it..

Hellloooo they're pretty heroboys.. they have to take care of the car. That's important. The squeaking thing.. bah.

Any dude who is just that into his car is not going to overlook something as simple as greasing the door hinges. It just makes the property master look like an asshat, and I shouldn't be thinking about the property master when I should be suspending disbelief.

After going off on dad, I would expect that, on confronting the dude who's actually responsible for the dead-raising, Dean to come up with something more like, "What the FC*K were you THINKING??" rather than, "You just don't mess with that suff."

Maybe he's got a rider in his contract that limits him to one fit of rage per episode?

Worse, he repeated the "Things that are dead..." line twice more before the end of the episode.

And then with the creaking doors!

Well, to be fair, the Impala is usually quite filthy. And car maintenance would take away from their daily allotted monster killing and emo-man-pain conversation having times. *g*

I have seen no more than 3-4 episodes, and in every one, the car is running perfectly, shining like it had just been waxed by hand, and sporting creaky door hinges. Part of me wonders it's not deliberate, an excuse that the boys can prop up to show that they're not really gearheads.

Seriously, though, greasing the door hinges? Most service stations with a mechanic would do it for free while you wait to fill your tank.

I suspect it is deliberate, but more because the sound guys think it makes the old car sound more authentic. And the fangirls? Really don't care either way. :)

Y'all are just waitin' on the forbidden brother-on-brother action?

If that car's a rockin', don't come a knockin'.

I wonder what sorts of things Dean keeps in the trunk. Surely it can't all be small arms, right?
tenillypo From: tenillypo Date: October 20th, 2006 01:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
The trunk is full or weaponry of all kinds...and hilariously, a dreamcatcher that they kept showing for a while at the beginning of the first season.
komos From: komos Date: October 20th, 2006 01:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Did the dreamcatcher protect them from the Wendigo?
tenillypo From: tenillypo Date: October 20th, 2006 01:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
It has yet to protect them from anything, but I keep my fingers crossed that one day it will turn out to be important.

God, I love this crappy show. Heh.

You just don't mess with that stuff.

WHAT'S DEAD SHOULD STAY DEAD!

What's dead should stay dead.
komos From: komos Date: October 20th, 2006 02:18 pm (UTC) (Link)

Oh, and one more thing...

I was dead, and now I'm not.

What's dead should stay dead.

Re: Oh, and one more thing...

Oh, Dean. *sighs*

Sorry, were you trying to make a point about anvilicious repetition and poor writing? I got distracted by the woobie angst.

;)

I just got ahold of the first ep of that series because a couple of my friends are so very into it.... Interesting. I do have a thing for fandom cars, though.
komos From: komos Date: October 20th, 2006 11:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I dig fandom cars, too. I wonder, though, if there's a fan out there who went out and got himself a black 67 Chevy Impala but has forgotten not to grease the door hinges. "Your doors make no sound... IT'S SO INAUTHENTIC!"

I watched the few monster-of-the-week episodes (Was la Llorona retelling the series opener?) from the first season, but just couldn't keep my interest up. I confess, though, that I'm fairly hard on my fantasy/sci-fi series, so don't take me as a guide

The obvious answer

They need the lubricant for ... other purposes.

I'm all aflutter.

Re: The obvious answer

You just had to go there.

It's used for all the hinges in the trunk, right?

Do not meddle in the affairs of Foley artists, for they are subtle and quick to loop a clownish squeak over your footsteps right when you're trying to pimp-walk.

So, they're the ones responsible for the Earth, Wind & Fire that plays everytime I enter a room? I need to talk to them about switching it up a bit.
