And by focusing on Jody and Donna, we mean JODY AND DONNA- Not Jody's adopted kids! Heck- even Garth and some hunting. Mix it up a little. This show has some great acting on the bench. But it's in an episode or two at most. More MoTW could include the brothers rushing in last minute to save the day while the bench gets themselves in trouble. Heck- go for a two season arch starting in 6. Don't kill off Bobby so fast. A few more Bobby and Rufus flashbacks episodes. Intersperse more MoTW throughout the Leviathans with the big send off happening after two seasons, not one. A season 6 cliffhanger being finding out the nation is being run by them. More plotting. More plots and repercussions of the plotlines.
If Mary had to come back, then make her a remotely likeable character. Go back- watch the first five seasons. Remember Ellen, you were able to make her likeable. I'm sure you could have done that with Mary. Had she been likeable, she could have carried a few episodes on her own. We hated her because she was very hateable. Like extremely. Or if you're going to make her so awful at least let the Boys- or JODY tell her off. Pick a personality for her and stick to it! Don't worry if some people won't like it. It's so much better for 10% to hate her than 90% to hate her.
There are some great actors out there. Bring back the James Marston and Charisma Carpenter witches. Make them friends who help a few more episodes with them and then have to take them down as a Big Bad. I mean seriously how awesome would a confrontation between those two and Rowena have been?
No Heaven as an office- EVER! I could have handled a Hell as a corporate office. I mean Crowley did Hell is a never endling line. But seriously, most of us spend our days stuck in a gray office anxiously awaiting the moment when we've done our boring 8 hours. Now the show wants me to think that is the wonderful eternity I've been promised? Please just NO!
I could have handled one of the guys meeting an awesome female hunter and had her around for a while. But the pairings they gave me didn't do it for me. Sam and Becky? Sam and the married chick while Dean was in Purgatory? Just No. I did like Lisa. I liked her a lot. But she was too innocent to survive his world. They both should have an equal in the fight. I know Hollywood thinks that interesting relationships can't work on TV because once the tension is there, they don't know how to write it. That's just ridiculous because I know it's a TOTALLY different show- but did anyone ever root for Charles and Caroline Ingalls to divorce- or a little closer to home- Gomez and Morticia Addams? Give me a break. Married couples can still flirt, argue, and have great chemistry, and cut heads off vampires, ghouls and djinn. Think of the smoldering looks Dean could give a woman that kissed him, said, "That's right, babe," and then launched a grenade into a pack of evil human killing vamps. He nods and says, "'At's my girl." Or Sam gets all protective like he does, even though she can fight too. They spar a little, roll around a little.
