Supernatural - A little less than a happy high
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.

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?

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 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.

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.

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.
