Damn Them ALL to HELL!

WARNING!  MINI-RANT TO FOLLOW!

I don't know why I continue to delude myself like this.  Every week, I look forward to finding the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly in my mailbox.  Without fail, I flip to the "What to Watch" section, telling myself that "this time, they'll have a blurb on Supernatural!"  I definitely thought so this week because both Smallville and Supernatural have NEW EPISODES airing, while most shows have used up all their fresh stuff.  But NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!   (said in my best John Belushi voice)  

On the front page of WtW, they have a picture and blurb about Lost, calling it the "Must Watch of the Week".  Okay, that I can live with.  It is the season premiere, after all (but did they really have to move it to Thursdays?!)  I flip to Thursday's page.  WTF?!?!?!?!  You canNOT be serious?!  No Smallville, no Supernatural.  What do they show for Thursday?  Celebrity Apprentice (ack), Soundstage with Chris Daughtry (that doesn't count...it's on PBS), some show called Wall Street Warriors (never heard of it), and...and...OMFG!  It is killing me to even type this!   Biography: Lindsay Lohan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!  

I think that is definitely one of the Seven Signs.  Hey...do you smell sulfur? 

Oh yeah...LiHo's Biography is only half an hour long!  Is that even worth the glossy paper it's printed on?!

If you can't tell...I'm really really REALLY pissed.  EW gives virtually no love to Supernatural.  Makes me wonder if they're owned by the CW.  Hmmmm, EW...CW.  CW...EW.  Yep, they're the Dastardly!Evil!Duo! when it comes to our favorite show.

Even though I'm about to go all Lou Ferrigno over the lack of coverage for Supernatural, I have to give credit where credit is due...EW did have a very nice cover and 5 page story on Heath Ledger.

I've got Zombie in right now, but may have to change it out for Gravity Kills.  I feel the need for some Angry!Industrial! (kickin' somebody's ass) music.

There was nothing mini about that - it was a full-on rant!

*sigh*
I hate that promotion is always an issue for our show.

Fucking Entertainment Weekly!! I used to have a subscription, but I got so mad I canceled it. They've never appreciated any of the so-called genre shows, which are, of course, what I love best.

It totally pisses me off that they dismiss Supernatural out of hand, when it without a doubt has some of the best acting on television today. And that's not my inner fangirl talking. I'm serious!! Grrr!!

Kick something for me, would ya? I'm still at work and have to behave.

You know what else? Last year I tried to get my cousin to pimp the show for me (he has a friend who writes for EW) & he said he'd bring it up, but that they usually don't have a lot of input in what they cover. *resumes glaring at EW*

The frickin' State of the Union even got a mention! The 2007 EA Sports Madden Challenge?! Rock of Love 2?! Flavor of Love 3?! Okay, this is it! They have a blurb for American Gladiators that says: Let's review: if you watch crappy filler (like this Nerf color war), the networks keep getting paid. If they get paid, TV will only suck more. So either watch better stuff or read a book. Please. Here's an idea, EW! Why don't you cover better stuff! Then maybe some of the dolts who watch that crap will realize that there IS better stuff out there!!!!! Like Supernatural for example! *extreme no malice intended towards fans of crappy, sub-intelligent tv*

*sigh* I fear that humanity is doomed. DOOOOOMED!

*pop* OW! I think something just burst.:-p

Isn't that great?! katysam made it! She has some new ones that she just did up, including this one, based on her Faces of Jared picspam.

Now, don't go bursting anything important! The hospital tv is not the best place to watch the new episode on Thursday.

Sorry.
I'd offer pretties, but I don't know how to embed pictures. Tariel taught me, but I wasn't able to make it work...

Virtual hugs? And a pox on EW...

A quick review:

1) Type <*img src="pic url" />
2) Take out the * and replace pic url with the direct link to the pic on your photobucket

For example, this:
<*img src="http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff190/tariel22/livejournal/DA211_022_320x238.gif" />

Becomes this when you take out the *:

Hi Tariel. Thanks again. It's the whole "photobucket" thing that I lack. I have pictures downloaded on my hard-drive. Tried putting them in an LJ gallery, but the address part didn't work right. I'm missing something, but haven't had the patience to deal...

Thank you so much, Tariel!! I wasn't sure of the code and such...I can't wait to try this out!!!

No problem! It's one of the few things I actually know how to do on LJ, so I'm happy to share! :)

Oh Rap! That totally sucks. I have a subscription to EW and I always check the TV listings first to see if SN got mentioned. I don't understand how they could 'pick' some of the those others shows instead. On the bright side, TV Guide seems to have turned around. Supernatural is consistently being mentioned in the highlights section.

I've totally become used to EW ignoring SN, although they did have it was one of the new shows to watch when it first came out.

I'm sorry I wasn't here to add comfort. I would have brought you something to help you feel better ... like a paper shredder.

I trust you are better now that you've had a chance to see the boys?

Oh yes, Keeper! Much better!

Also, an EW update: I just got the latest copy & THEY ACTUALLY MENTIONED SUPERNATURAL'S EPISODE FOR 2/7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I posted the synopsis over at Giggles (with a big old spoiler warning on it), so next time you're over there walking the halls, you might want to skip that particular comment of mine. *grins*

Is it Thursday yet?!?!?!
