Starting towards the end of S6, my sister's boyfriend (J) started to watch Supernatural with us... I didn't really expect him to get into the show. In the beginning he only watched it with us occasionally, so I figured he didn't need to know that much about plot and whatnot.

Lately, I started noticing that we constantly had to wait for J to come over before we watched a new episode together. Then we had the following exchange one night...

The thing you have to understand is that my sister names her plants, not even like someone names their pets, but like someone names PEOPLE. One of her plants replicates itself, so she started two other plants from it, and said I could have one...and then I got a plant from my friend who was leaving town...so we had three plants without names.

Me: My plants don't have names. I should name them.
J: What are the other plants names?
Sister: Charlie Edward Plant, Peter Jenkins, and Jethro Tall.
Me: So, what should I name my big plant?
J: Jefferson Starship.
Me: Hahaha...actually, that works, it IS a hybrid...
J: *points to little seedling*...and that one can be Little Dean.
Sister: And his brother can be Little Sam!

So, that was my first hint...and then the other night, we were getting ready to watch last week's episode...

J: I'm really liking this Supernatural show, you know? It's like...the way they do it, it's funny, but you also take it seriously, even though you know, it could be ridiculous, but it never is...because they do it so well...and...I'm not explaining this well...
Me: Haha, I know what you mean.
J: And that Dean - he really cracks me up. *laughs*

And I guess I kind of forgot that he hadn't seen it from the beginning, because we watch the whole thing and at the end of it he was like...
J: Wait, so what was the deal with that guy?
Me: *eyebrow raised* Lucifer?
J: Oh, is that who he is? I couldn't remember.
Me: *boggles* Um, maybe I should loan you my DVDs.

So, there you go, my sister's boyfriend is now a Dean!boy who likes the show even though 50% of the time he has absolutely no idea what's going on.

That is too funny. You get anyone to watch the show long enough and they get hooked. I know one of my nephews has told me he has seen a couple of episodes and finds it interesting. I'm sure, like J, if he were to sit down and watch more regularly, he would become hooked as well. You just can't help it. The show is the best thing on TV nowadays, right?!? And he has great taste in being a Dean!boy - just gotta say. I like him just for that alone. :)

Indeed.

I think everyone gets hooked on the show because of Dean. He's the one that hooks you, and then you fall in love with the other characters after...at least, that's how it worked for me. ;)
