I just finished re-watching SPN season 6 on my dvr. I didn't like season 6 as much as the rest of the seasons. I didn't like Soulless Sammy and I didn't like Castiel skulking around with Crowley. I did like Crowley, but I always like him. I didn't really like the Lisa storyline. I like Lisa, I just don't like the way she doesn't seem to have any existence outside of being Dean's haven and Ben's mother. Did she even have a job?

But the part of the season I liked the least was the fact that Dean was lied to and got his heart broken by everyone he loved--Sam, Bobby, Castiel, Lisa and Ben.

The season 5 two part finale was one of the best finales of the whole show, so the contrast in how much I didn't like the beginning of season 6 was pretty stark. I had a hard time watching season 6, and even skipped a couple of episodes during the rewatch (except for "The French Mistake--I watched that twice).

Anyway, I thought the end of last season was pretty brilliant as well, so I'm relieved that I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode of this new season. I liked this trip inside Sam's head better than the ones with Lucifer, and Dean was awesome. I need to rewatch it to get a better handle on it, but overall it didn't make me want to punch someone like the season 6 opener did.

Okay, just rewatched this season's premiere, and yes, I liked it a lot. I'm looking forward to seeing where all this is going. Sam with his "angel pacemaker," Castiel with his adventures in being human, all the angels on the lookout for Castiel and the boys, Dean being his usual emo awesome self, and how much did I love the angel APB? That was a pretty cool turn of events. I like the guy from Battlestar Galactica as an angel. And I'm interested in seeing what happens with partially cured Crowley, and what's going on with Hell. Should be a good season!

Really!! I loved the season 6 opener but I get that I'm in a minority as far as that goes. And I think I didn't give this season opener as much of a chance. Rewatch time! :)

Season 6 was just so sad to me. But! I guess they'll hit the mark exactly with some fans and miss a bit with others.

My favorite part of this opener is the Angel APB--I actually got a little chill when that went out. Dean didn't realize what he was unleashing, and it was so big! Who knows what the fallout will be.

right? Even BG, who rarely watches it, was all, "Oh no, Dean! That's a baaaaad idea!" but hey, what could he do--Sam was in trouble.

Some day, someone needs to do a Dean POV video set to Grenade by Bruno Mars ;)

Whenever I need a quick cheering up I watch the soulless Sam eps. You can see the wheels turning in his mind when he's trying to react like souled!Sam. Usually he gets it wrong or over exaggerates, and it cracks me up every time. :D Even before when he's found out, you can see it. *love*

The early eps of that season are among my favorites for sure. Yeah, and you know it was only in rewatching it that I really got into it. I inferred that you had already seen it from your post, but for me the rewatch made all the difference, especially on repeated viewings and knowing what was happening already. My respect for Jared's acting skyrocketing that season. I think that is in good part behind my giddiness. He was so good being soulless Sam trying to be regular Sam!

I agree, Jared did a great job in those scenes. I even thought he might be a demon or some other creature at the beginning of the season. I guess I just focused more on Dean's heartbreak. Huh, I never realized before that I'm probably a Dean girl LOL!
