TV Guide Goes Supernatural

Supernatural beat out the likes of Chuck, Castle, Bones, How I Met Your Mother, and Smallville to become the first TV Guide Fan Favorite winner. A total of 5.5 million votes were cast by fans for the past few weeks with the race more or less contested between Supernatural and Chuck, shows which both have a rabid and loyal fanbase.

It's a great honor for this under-appreciated CW show now in its sixth season about two brothers, played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, who entangle with demons, angels, and other things that go bump in the night to grace the cover of TV Guide Magazine for the very first time ever.

I do have to ask though, was this really the best cover they could've come up with? Nevermind that Misha Collins, who plays the fan-favorite Castiel on the show, a series regular, is not on the cover. They probably wanted to focus on the two leads from the very beginning. I can live with that. So now they have these two very handsome young men and so what do they do? They Photoshop them to death. So instead of looking like the hot rugged men that they are, they look like plastic Ken dolls ready to strut their stuff on the runway Zoolander-style.

So congratulations to the fans who voted and the cast and crew for this honor, but someone fire the cover designer. Or at least sic Crowley or the yellow-eyed demon at them.

  1. I actually voted for CHUCK as I never watched Supernatural. Oh well, if it were up to me, I'd put Alexei Volkoff on the cover any day :D


Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
